As Rosie and Sophie clean the kebab shop windows, the builders working nearby watch admiringly. When Norris suggests Rosie’s modelling career must have taken a nose dive if she’s reduced to cleaning windows, it touches a nerve with Sally, who calls at No.13 and tears a strip off Kevin and Anna for making the girls clean windows for a living. Anna sees red and points out that ‘Darling Rosie’ is actually a drugs mule. Sally’s stunned.

Sally’s shocked when Rosie bursts into tears, admitting her whole career is in tatters but she’s been pretending to live the high life to avoid Sally’s judgement.

So when one of the builders, Zack, throws a flirty comment at Rosie, Sally threatens to report him for sexual harassment.
