Meanwhile, Shona refuses to support David, leaving him furious and even more determined to ruin Daniel.
It all kicks off when Daniel realises that David has reported him to the police.

Summer is gutted when Daniel reveals he can’t tutor her as he’s been suspended.
This week, David accuses Daniel of fancying Summer when he agrees to give her extra tuition.

Max listens in and later the youngster makes a dig at Daniel, likening his relationship with Bethany to that of Romeo and Juliet.
When Daniel’s wallet goes missing at school, he accuses Max.
David is fuming when he arrives on the scene to find Daniel ordering Max to empty his pockets and grabbing him.

Speaking about how Daniel reacts to Max’s comment about his past relationship with Bethany, Rob Mallard revealed: “He’s shocked because as far as he’s concerned that’s in his past, the fact that David’s been bad mouthing him behind closed doors, Daniel didn’t realise his reputation was still so bad in the Platt household."
Talking about how Daniel starts to fear for his job: “It’s quite a process doing your PGCE and becoming a teacher, it’s an investment that he doesn’t want to have no return on."
