Harvey starts to worry

Jean’s groom-to-be Harvey is concerned about how much money Jean is spending on the wedding.

He orders her to cancel everything, trying to persuade her they should concentrate on finding their new home in Southend first.

When he sees how excited she is to receive her wedding dress, however, he slightly backtracks.

Later, Harvey’s distraught to learn that his son Aaron has been attacked in prison, but Jean hardly registers what he’s told her.

Harvey realises he has to concentrate on his son, but this leaves Jean furious.

She moves into the Slaters’. But she’s not done yet.
