Meanwhile, as his wife Abi set to return to the cobbles with her baby Alfie, Kevin (played by Michael Le Vell) can’t help but feel under pressure.

Kevin wants to attend Jack’s end of year presentation but Tyrone Dobbs says that Stephen Reid’s (Todd Boyce) Jaguar needs sorting first.
While in class, Jack is being called “Spanner” for having two fathers working as mechanics which stems from his birth as he was first believed to be Tyrone’s son.
Jack retaliates by punching Nathan – and his father Kevin gets a call from school about the fight.
The eleven-year-old explains how Nathan ridiculed him after finding out Tyrone initially believed he was his father.
Knowing Kevin has a lot on his plate, his apprentice Aaron covers for him and works on Stephen’s car, much to his colleague’s relief.
A row between Kevin and Jack ensues at No.13 and the young boy admits he’s not looking forward to Abi’s return as he feels neglected.
In later scenes, Jack is sullen to see Kevin trying to impress Chloe, the social worker, who pays them a visit to question him about Abi and Alfie.
But the pressure soon gets too much for Kevin.
