Whitney’s desperate to learn more about Britney’s condition, but Zack’s worried about his pregnant girlfriend taking on more stress.

When Britney heads off for her first day at school, Zack suggests enrolling the youngster at the GP and telling them about her diagnosis. Worried her lies are about to be exposed, Whit says she’s already done it. Then she tracks Sonia down and tries to persuade her not to do the checks that are needed to register Britney.

But Sonia won’t budge and Whit’s left with no choice but to drag Keeley to the GP to sign Britney up.
