It’s the day of Jade’s hearing and Mick accidentally lets slip to Buster and Shirley about how Shabnam previously took Jade without permission. This leaves Shirley feeling very smug and Stacey is worried when she hears that Shirley is planning to tell the judge. Stacey decides to warn Shabnam about Shirley’s intentions, causing Shabnam to break down and confront Shirley. Despite an emotional plea from both Shabnam and Stacey, Buster forces them to leave.
Later, as they prepare to leave for court, Kush and Shabnam have an honest conversation and come to a decision. When Shabnam and Stacey make amends, Shabnam drops a bombshell by revealing that she thinks she’s pregnant.
Meanwhile, Ian is annoyed when he learns that the council are refusing to get a Christmas tree for the Square this year. He comes up with a plan – his restaurant can sponsor the tree.
