Charity isn’t exactly known for her nurturing side, and so looking after Vanessa and their kids has put her to the test.
But next week sees things get even harder.
Vanessa starts her chemotherapy
As Vanessa prepares for her first day of chemotherapy, Moses and Johnny both go down with a sickness bug.
With both young boys vomiting, Vanessa urges Charity to stay at home while she goes to the hospital.
But after failing to find anyone to replace Charity as her chaperone, Vanessa faces chemo on her own.
However when Kerry happens to be walking past, she sees Vanessa all alone and heads in to keep her company.
Vanessa understandably isn’t happy to see the woman who caused her dad’s death.
However, after a while the tension starts to thaw between the women.
But when Charity arrives she is fuming to see Kerry with Vanessa and soon her extreme reaction causes an argument.
Vanessa is mortified by the whole thing and their argument continues once they’re home.
Charity and Vanessa on the rocks
But that’s not the end of the drama.
As Vanessa turns to Rhona for support she remembers it is her birthday and suggests they head out for a birthday drink.
However, Rhona senses trouble when Vanessa drinks too much, clearly trying to block out the pain of what is happening.
Despite being in the doghouse when she gets home drunk, Vanessa manages to make up with Charity and all is right in the world again.
But later in the week Vanessa has for a big question for Charity and, when she hesitates before answering, Vanessa is fuming.
