Rob fusses over Helen and gives her some money to go and buy maternity clothes. He wants to take Henry to the Bridge Farm shop as he checks on progress and persuades Helen not to come, as Henry wants more Daddy time. Helen also wants to come with Rob to run some things by the shop's site manager, but Rob tells her to focus on shopping. Rob's also going to show Pat and Tony the baby scan on his own, teasingly pointing out to 'selfish' Helen that she got to show them Henry's. Lynda treats Susan to lunch to discuss Calendar Girls, and cleverly reels Susan in - she knows Susan doesn't want to be in the show, so who on earth can fill the boots of such a challenging role as Chris, opposite Elizabeth's Annie? She needs someone sensitive, with comic ability and emotional depth. Susan selflessly agrees to take it on. She's even happy to strip off - well, she says, if it's good enough for Elizabeth Pargetter... Helen and Kirsty meet up for the first time in a while. Helen gets upset as she talks about her pregnancy. Kirsty tells Helen she can tell her if anything's wrong, but Helen says she's fine. But it sounds like a question when Helen says everything's going to be alright.
