Airing Tuesday, 20th January 2004 at 19:00 on ITV1

Tension is mounting in the court as the second day of the trial unfolds. In the dock, Scott is taken apart by the defence lawyer, much to Zoe’s horror as she was relying on her new lackey to strengthen the case against Charity.

Later that evening, when court is adjourned, Charity decides to pay Zoe a visit. She is determined that this could be her last chance to get Zoe to change her statement before she is called as a witness in the morning. After heated discussion, Zoe finally cracks asking what she wants and Charity admits that she is terrified of going to prison, insisting that Zoe is the only person who can help her.

From YTV EMMERDALE Tuesday 20 January 2003 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Charity (EMMA ATKINS) (right) will stop at nothing in her attempt to manipulate Zoe (LEAH BRACKNELL) for the trial.

With emotions running high, Charity takes a different approach and catches Zoe off guard with a long seductive kiss. As Charity leaves, she is quietly confident that her manipulation has given her the upper hand on the situation with Zoe. But will the passionate clinch be enough to secure her freedom?

From YTV EMMERDALE Tuesday 20 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Louise (EMILY SYMONS) is less than impressed to walk in on Ashley (JOHN MIDDLETON) and Bernice (SAMANTHA GILES) rolling around on the floor .......

Meanwhile, Bernice and Ashley spend quality time together for the first time in two years. Cosy and trauma free, Bernice gets to know her husband again. She asks what it is like to walk with crutches and amuses Ashley by having a go.
Her clumsy efforts leave her in a heap on the floor, and as the vicar tries to help her up he ends up tumbling too. Louise is far from amused when she arrives clutching a bottle of wine to find her boyfriend and his ex-wife rolling around on the floor helpless with laughter…

From YTV EMMERDALE Tuesday 20 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Ashley finds himself piggy in the middle. Pictured: (L-R) Bernice (SAMANTHA GILES), Ashley (JOHN MIDDLETON) and Louise (EMILY SYMONS). EMBARGO

ITV.COM Charity Risks Everything Tuesday 20.01.04
Scott Windsor takes the stand at the trial
It's Scott's turn to give evidence and Charity's barrister tears him apart mercilessly. Why, if Chris was so happy about his paternity of Zoe's child, was his business mysteriously vandalised that month? He also brings up that Chris had tried to evict him, and that Scott had told the police that Chris was trying to frame him for rape. This isn't how Viv had imagined it - she had brought a headset phone to provide a proud running commentary on her son's performance, and her embarrasment is complete when her phone goes off and she is thrown out of court. Scott is asked why he withdrew all of his claims, and the lawyer tells the court that it was because Zoe calls the shots - and even now he has been told what to say.
Bernice is beginning to really annoy and belittle Louise
Bernice and Louise are shaping up for a big fight over both the Woolpack and Ashley. Chas really enjoys seeing Louise feeling uncomfortable, but rapidly goes off Bernice when her attempts at bonding backfire and make Chas feel like a bad mother. The strain is showing in how Louise talks to Ashley, and Bernice later confides to him that she doesn't think Louise is good enough. But Bernice does some good by giving a frustrated Terry something positive to do, even if it was just sorting out cutlery.
Charity tries to kiss Zoe
That night, Charity ignores Debbie's warnings and visits Zoe to see if she can bring her round. The house isn't locked when she arrives, and Zoe threatens to call the police when she gets home to find her already there. Charity says she won't, like she didn't when Cain hit Scott - after all she's scared that Scott changed his story. She also says that Zoe can't lie about what happened, flattering her that she's not a bad person. And while Charity may be bad, she didn't kill Chris. She also reminds her of their friendship, and how they'd got through so much together with Jean and Debbie. Getting bolder, she brings up the fate of her unborn child in prison, and eventually even kisses her. She hints that they could rekindle their relationship and Zoe, torn, says she'll do the best she can. "Damn you" she says to Chris's picture once she is alone again.
