Ronnie had one son, Matthew, with Charlie Cotton, and when Dot and Ronnie’s mum Glenda discuss Jack’s situation, things get tense when Charlie’s name is brought up.

Dot suggests her grandson should care for his child, and when Glenda insists that Charlie should not be contacted, the former launderette worker finds herself in a difficult position.

With Jack admitting that he’s struggling to cope, and failing to explain what has happened to his children Ricky and Amy, the family have to start thinking of a long-term plan.

When the day of the funeral arrives, Jack insists that the children should attend it with him and as if there’s not enough going on, Glenda then decides to drop a huge bombshell on the morning of the service.
