But can Chesney and Gemma get to the airport in time to stop him?
When Linda calls at No.5 to collect Joseph for school, Chesney admits to Gemma it’s time he accepted that Linda can give Joseph a far better life in Portugal.
Biting the bullet, Chesney tells Joseph that he’s prepared to let him move to Portugal with Granny Linda, leaving him inwardly gutted.
Meeting up with Linda in the Rovers, Chesney tells her that she can give Joseph the life he deserves. But Chesney and Gemma are both shocked when Linda calls at No.5 and explains that owing to an emergency, she’s flying back to Portugal tonight and Joseph asserts that he'll go too.
Outside No.5, as an emotional Chesney, Gemma, Bernie, Fiz, Hope and Ruby wave Joseph and Linda off in their taxi, Fiz urges Hope to tell Chesney what Joseph said.
When Hope reveals that Joseph didn’t want to go to Portugal but felt they couldn’t afford to keep him, Chesney realises he’s made the worst decision of his life.
As a panicky Chesney and Gemma set off for the airport in pursuit of Joseph, will they reach him in time?
