But when Faye has an operation for suspected ovarian cancer, it looks like the twins may be left without a mother. Viv reveals that she gave birth to them with her confession bringing dire consequences. After numerous attempts, Annie finally manages to breast feed her new baby, with help from an unexpected source. Patty turns into a dictator when teaching her friends how to salsa in preparation for Martha's wedding. As they twirl, Pete tells Viv he's lined up a meeting with his boss, who needs to approve Viv as his fiancé. Viv realises she's just been proposed to - again.
