New Year gas leak horror
A party at the Slaters' house for New Year's Eve ends in disaster, when a gas leak leaves lives on the line.

Meanwhile Jean Slater worries, when she fears Harvey is going to propose to her just as they look set to get their romance back on track.
Eve Unwin is still battling her feelings for Suki Panesar, amid her telling her secret love interest that she had decided to make a go of things with husband Nish.
Both Suki and Nish arrive at the party leaving Eve shaken, while she soon sets about encouraging them to stay - wanting to befriend Nish.
Later on though, there's horror when Nish can't find Suki and Eve suddenly collapses - sparking serious concern.
She isn't the only one in grave danger though, as Jean faints in Harvey's arms as she too takes a turn.
Her granddaughter Lily Slater is another unlucky victim of the gas leak, as she begins to be sick before collapsing in the hallway.
