Ferguson receives unlikely support from peer worker Doreen when she reveals that she saved baby Josh from Jess, and attempts to make a deal with Bea to bash her. Things do not go according to plan as Ferguson is subjected to a brutal ganging in the showers from Lucy and her 'boys', but as always, Ferguson is able to manipulate events to her advantage.
