Helen is excited about meeting Rob now that he’s back from his weekend away. Kirsty probes Helen for information about Rob’s family party, but Helen fields the questioning. Kirsty manages to persuade Helen to enter some of the jewellery she made into the Flower and Produce Show.
Kirsty mentions to Tom that she and Damian have split up. Tom suggests that, if she doesn’t have to dash off, maybe she could pop in for a coffee.
Helen is disappointed when Rob calls her to cancel their get together. Teething problems at work mean Rob’s not sure when he’ll be free this week.
Over coffee, Kirsty asks Tom if he’s sorted out his cash flow problem. Tom brushes aside her comment, saying it’s gone away. They playfully flirt with each other and are about to steal a kiss only to be interrupted by Helen and Henry.

Lynda is surprised to hear that Ray has moved some regular guests in order to accommodate a travel journalist in the Royal Garden Suite. She is doubly unhappy to be the one to break the news to them. Ray is convinced she’ll think of something to tell them.
