Victoria and Matty fall out

Victoria is becoming more and more jealous of Matty's budding relationship with Abby, and unaware, he confides in her that he is scared to tell Abby that he is trans. Victoria is later pleased when Matty asks her to spend his birthday with him, but later changes his mind when Abby asks him to do something, although he forgets to tell Victoria. While Victoria tries to hide her disappointment when she finds out that they will no longer be spending the day together, she finds it hard when she sees the pair kissing. Victoria later puts her foot in it when she finds Abby alone, crying, and assuming that it is because Matty has told her about his transition, she tells Abby that she should be more understanding. When she realises that Abby didn’t have a clue, Victoria is left mortified. Will Matty be able to forgive his friend? Or will this see them grow further apart?
