However, with Sinead’s situation at the forefront of everyone’s minds, Ken isn’t sure it is appropriate to be partying when his daughter-in-law is so sick.

But when Daniel hears his dad turning down a chance to celebrate his 80th year, he disagrees and tells Ken that a party would be just what they need to forget their problems for a moment.

As Daniel and Sinead agree to go along to Ken’s party they promise each other they will savour every day they have left together.

But as the pair head to the party, Sinead is determined to put on a brave face, and the whole celebration is a huge success with both Norris Cole and Emily Bishop making an appearance!
