This week on The Square, Lauren is rushed to hospital in agony, while Tanya makes a massive decision.
It's Abi's birthday, but she isn't the centre of attention for long as Lauren didn't come home to Max's place last night. Lucy covers for Lauren by claiming that she went off with her college friends and sent her a text to say so. With Lauren in agony and on the verge of collapsing, Cora calls for an ambulance. Shortly afterwards, Lauren collapses in severe pain outside the hospital.
Max and Tanya are given the news that Lauren has hepatitis and her liver is damaged. She'll need a scan to discover the full extent. The doctor also takes the opportunity to speak to Max and Tanya about Lauren's drinking history.
Elsewhere, Kirsty takes the test but while she is waiting for the result, she hears someone at the door and she quickly flings the test into the bin. As Kirsty looks out, she sees Carl walking away and bumping into Max. The two men share heated words. Does Carl know Kirsty's secret, and will he share it with Max?
Later in the week, a devastated Max realises that Tanya is not going to change her mind. As they say a tearful goodbye to each other, the love between them is evident and it will never go away. But will Max be able to keep the rest of his family together, or will they decide to leave alongside Tanya?
