Next up, Sharon goes to see Ian, but when he confides his worries about falling ill again, she realises she can't ask him for help when he's so fragile, so heads off to see Phil instead.

She begs the baldy bruiser for her job back and, although he agrees, he tells her she can longer be the manager. It's not quite the welcome home she was expecting, but she puts a brave face on and heads to the B&B.
