But will James make his move?
When newcomer Beau states that he’s looking for a new personal trainer, Donna-Marie is the first to offer. But a test from Beau tricks her into revealing her lack of qualification for the role. And when he reveals that he’s been let down by a solicitor, Donna-Marie knows exactly who can pick up the slack, James.
After taking a shine to his latest client, a miserable James perks up, but when he catches the end of a conversation between Tony and Beau, could he get the wrong idea?
Setting the record straight between himself and James, Beau invites the lawyer out for an unconventional therapy day.
Later, as Beau recalls a lonely childhood, the pair bond over their close relationships with their late mums and James makes a surprising vouch for Tony. But will it be enough to fix what has been done?
Meanwhile, despite Tony’s efforts, tension continues to build between him and Beau.
