Steve is totally convinced by next week that he is Emma’s biological father, but to prove he is right he decides to do a DNA test.
But getting hold of Emma’s DNA without her realising is harder than Steve thought, so in the end he takes her for lunch at the Bistro and pretends she has got something in her hair.
As he goes to remove the phantom item, he yanks a bit of her hair out, and when she nips to the toilet he places the strand of hair in a plastic bag, ready to send off for testing.
And it seems that for once Steve is right about something, because when the results come back, they confirm he is indeed Emma’s dad. All he has got to do now is tell her the news…

But Emma doesn’t just lash out at Fiona and Steve.
