Alfie’s Santa plan fails
Alfie wants to create a magical Christmas for Kat, his big idea being to dress up as Santa and rappel down from the roof of the Mitchells’ house. Inside, however, Bert blurted out to Phil that Kat had told Alfie he could stay with them until New Years.
Later, Phil goes out to see Alfie stuck on the roof, but it’s Kat who ends up helping her ex back home. And there’s more friction to come when Phil finds out what happened at his house while he was away.
Phil goes AWOL
In the wake of Phil making those discoveries about Alfie (see above), the local hardman disappears and Kat desperately tries to find out what’s going on.
Sam eventually finds Phil at Peggy’s house, but she is shocked by what she sees and tries to convince Phil to give Kat another chance. Later, Sam spots Kat and insists that Phil is loyal to her – and trust, Sam says, should go both ways.
But Sam is aware that Phil must not know what she did in Spain.
