The arrival of baby Olivia in Fair City has seen tensions rise at Carrigstown over what will happen next.

Sash Bishop will be seen worrying over the health of the baby she gave birth to in tomorrow night's episode.

However, Laura moves to reassure the anxious mother, who is played by actress Stephanie Kelly.

Olivia arrived one month early on New Year's Day in Carrigstown after Sash went into labour unexpectedly with Orla and Wayne's baby.

Strain

Sash agreed to be a surrogate for the couple, who were looking for a miracle child to provide bone marrow for son Junior, who has a condition that can lead to leukaemia.

But the relationship is coming under increasing strain while Orla, played by Sorcha Furlong, and Wayne, played by Victor Burke, field questions from Tommy.

Meanwhile, Sash misreads Wayne's offer of help as a bid to take Olivia away from her - and he fails to reassure Sash he's not after Olivia.

Wayne is at the receiving end of Orla's anger over the matter.

A paranoid Sash also thinks Dolores and Pete know the truth, so Sash tells Wayne and Orla she may have let the cat out of the bag.

The storyline continues throughout the week, as viewers see Laura supporting Sash when she and Olivia return home from the hospital.

Tommy is furious when he eventually finds out about Sash's deal with Orla and Wayne.

Elsewhere on the show tomorrow night, Sharon feels unsupported when she clashes with Anto over how to deal with Hayley.

Sharon's out in the cold as she spots a warm exchange between Hayley and Ger - and she suggests Ger should leave Carrigstown.

But Sharon doesn't bargain on Ger's reply.
