Airing on ITV1

As Bernice prepares to leave the village, she is filled with remorse as she contemplates leaving her daughter for a second time. Having desperately enjoyed spending time with Gabby, she begins to think what life would be like if she took her to Brighton.

From YTV EMMERDALE Friday 30 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Before leaving the village Bernice (SAMANTHA GILES) summons up the courage to ask Ashley if Gabby can go to Brighton. Ashley misunderstands thinking she means for her to visit ........

Knowing she would have a fight on her hands, Bernice confides in her father Rodney, telling him she is not sure she can leave Gabby with Ashley knowing she would be so far away. Having bottled up her maternal instincts for so long, Bernice goes to see Ashley intending to tell him she is taking their daughter with her. Will the vicar give up his daughter to his estranged wife as she bids farewell to the village?

Katie tells Andy she is going to the library but instead goes to see Robert. As he undresses her, there is a knock at the door from Paul and in his bedraggled state Robert is forced to admit to him that he is inside with a girl. Katie leaves, nervous about being caught for real and rejects Robert’s suggestion of continuing their steamy liaison in a hotel.

From YTV EMMERDALE Friday 30 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Chloe is angry as Chastity openly flirts with Syd. Pictured: (L-R) Syd (NATHAN GLADWELL), Chloe (AMY NUTTALL) and Chastity (LUCY PARGETER).

ITV.COM Bernice Finds Her Conscience Friday 30.01.04
Diane, Louise and Marlon
Diane and Jack both wake up very happy, though the 5:30am start isn't popular. Marlon and Louise are equally joyous on hearing the news, and break out the champagne for breakfast. Diane wants a low-key wedding, but Marlon gets slightly drunk and when Jack comes in at lunchtime he stops the whole pub to announce the engagement and to propose a toast to love.
Chloe and Syd
Katie's had enough of the garage as a romantic venue, and she tells Andy she's going to the library so she can see Robert at his instead. They are snogging furiously when a knock on the door disturbs them - it's Paul with a registered letter, who works out Robert's got a woman inside. He's cocky, but Katie is so spooked that she decides they need another venue or else. Later she completely forgets the lie about the Library.

Meanwhile one relationship is saved while another looks on the rocks. Siobhan and Paul finally manage to get back on the rails, whereas Chloe is increasingly worried about the flirting between Chas and Syd - particularly when she finds that he started it.
Bernice is really pleased for her mother, but doesn't want to leave Gabby behind at the end of the day. She tells Rodney that she had been glad to leave Gabby, that she'd been part of the problem. But now she wants her back, and she should be with her mother. Rodney can't reassure her about this, and sends her to talk to Ashley immediately. Bernice hints about Gabby coming to Brighton, a good environment and a now a stable home with Charlie. Unfortunately Ashley thinks she's talking about visits, and Bernice has nowhere to manouvre. Later she tells Rodney she just couldn't break Ashley and Gabby up, and that night she drives away alone.
