Roy gets a visitor

Lauren’s Mum, Kerry, calls into the cafe and introduces herself to Roy and Nina. That night, Kerry secretly films Roy’s living room, recording a commentary making him out to be a murderer.

When Roy walks into the room, Kerry leaps back onto the sofa and pretends to be asleep. But what is she up to?

The next day, Nick and Sam visit Roy. Nick apologises and tells him that he’d be happy for Sam to spend time with him when things are back to normal.

When Sam tells Roy that he’s his best friend, sneaky Kerry takes note.

Later, as Roy and Evelyn walk Freddie, they come face to face with Alice again. She starts filming them and, as Roy tries to stop her, Alice stumbles and bangs her head. Alice hurries away, accusing Roy of assault.
