The live episode will centre around the Platt's and their desperate attempts to thwart Callum and his plan to extort £20,000 from them.

That means, Tina O'Brien, Jack P Shepherd, Paula Lane and Sean Ward will really be put to the test. No pressure guys, but we know the nation will be making sure no one messes up their lines!
