The embryos will still be viable for another 24 hours so it’s imperative that their surrogate attends tomorrow. Tommy meanwhile has stopped the car and explains to Tina how he just can’t cope with the idea of the surrogacy and if she goes ahead with it he’ll leave her.

Struggling with guilt Ryan’s emotional as he explains how desperately sorry he is. But will Sally and Kevin be as forgiving as Sophie?
KEN SEEKS SANCTUARY WITH WENDY. After the governors meeting Wendy suggests they go back to hers for supper. He considers this before making his excuses to Deirdre. Wendy’s keen to prove that she’s a good listener and encourages Ken to off load his woes. But when a tipsy Ken falls asleep in his chair Wendy doesn’t wake him. As she watches him have Wendy’s feelings for Ken been rekindled?
Elsewhere Nick steps in to mend Mary’s friendship with Roy. Gloria insists on taking Lewis out to dinner. Lewis feels obliged but will he lie to Audrey again?

Bill Roache is 80 and maybe within the next couple of years, he might think of easing up. Ken could either be just referred to but not seen much, or he could eventually take off with another woman. I wonder if the break-down in the their marriage is leading up to that - the very slow burn and an explosive exit.

"Sophie comes round after her operation and is frightened when she can’t feel her legs."

Most of the documentaries I've seen of paralysed patients, when told to wiggle their toes, have the sensation of thinking they have done, even when their body is incapable of doing so.

Amputees of arms also report this phenomenon of thinking they can 'feel' their fingers.

Would someone in Sophie's predicament be more likely to complain of 'numbness' rather than the more dramatic sounding "I can't feel my legs"?

Artistic license, Soaps and B movies . . .

Reminds me of the clip from a film of Ronald Reagan's during a documentary recounting his life's achievements where he wakes up in hospital after having his legs amputated and still lying prone screams: "Arrghh where's the rest of me?"

Blimey, that Wendy's in there quick!! Will Ken never learn?
If Tommy leaves Tina she could forget the surrogacy anyway as the debt is his, not hers. Or does she really just want to help Izzy and Gary? How much will they end up having to pay Owen for the flat if they back out now? - NN
