Their aim is to block the council bin wagon on Victoria Street, something that Toyah succeeds in doing by leaping into the cab of the big wagon.

As the two of them reminisce, Toyah gets emotional about Imran’s death, and their heart to heart results in her inviting Spider to stay over.
Maria’s explicit video scandal
A viral video is doing the rounds that sees Maria’s head grafted onto a naked woman to make it look as though she’s in a porn film. And Gary’s raging when he sees how shaken Maria is by the convincing deep-fake footage.
