Determined to help her family and forge ahead with the plan, Bernie speaks to Rainie about the surrogacy.

However, it appears the deal’s off as Rainie gently lets her down.

Will Nancy come home?

Over The Vic, Mick is writing his victim impact statement when Nancy shows up.

She pretends she’s enjoying living with Sharon until she realises her mum isn’t there and she admits the truth that it’s awful, but she still doesn’t want to return home.

Things go from bad to worse as Mick attends a hospital appointment with Nancy, where she learns the doctor won’t change her mind about the sterilisation

Mick tries to reason with her – giving it time isn’t the end of the world and if she’s still sure she doesn’t want kids later down the line he’ll talk to Linda.

Nancy agrees on the basis that Mick does something for her – she encourages him to finish his statement and read it in court himself.

Spurred on by his daughter, Mick does just that but unbeknownst to him, Katy is standing outside is The Vic.
