Review :-

Syd is startled when a surprise visitor drops in from down under.

Chas makes herself even less popular with Carl and the Kings.

Victoria goes AWOL.


Betty gets a fright when she returns to the village

Betty's back but she gets a surprise

Syd (Nathan Gladwell) hears noises and fears an intruder is trying to break into the house. He picks up a hairbrush to use as a weapon and tiptoes downstairs only to find it’s Betty (Paula Tilbrook). Both are embarrassed as Syd is stark naked!

Syd thinks the house is being burgled and runs down stairs naked and comes face to face with Bety

Betty later goes into the café to find a warm welcome from Ashley (John Middleton), Edna (Shirley Stelfox) and Emily (Kate McGregor). Betty is desperate to catch up on the village gossip but Edna remains tight-lipped.

After a few drinks in the Woolpack the villagers fill Betty in on Edna’s accident and Pearl’s (Meg Johnson) son. Despite being keen to hear everyone else’s news Betty is not forthcoming when questioned about Seth (Stan Richards). Could she be hiding something?

Over in the café, Chas (Lucy Pargeter) sits moping over Carl (Tom Lister), despite Charity (Emma Atkins) best efforts to cheer her. Chloe walks in as if butter wouldn’t melt, and Chas jumps up threatening to kill her.

Meanwhile, Carl (Tom Lister) is delighted when Colleen (Melanie Ash) allows him to see his kids, but when Chas (Lucy Pargeter) arrives an argument breaks out and Carl tells her once and for all that it’s over.

ITV.COM Update

Syd gets a surprise when he goes to investigate a noise downstairs. With nothing on and only a hairbrush to defend himself he is embarrassed to find himself face to face with Betty. Betty looks him up and down and remarks that he’s not going to get very far with that. Betty is horrified by the state of her home and gets Syd to clean up. She then goes in search of gossip. She gets a warm welcome in the café but everyone remains tight-lipped. It’s only when Chloe walks in and Chas has to be restrained that Betty gets an inkling about what’s going on.
After the run in with Chas Chloe heads back to the office and pretends to be upset. Jimmy wants to go and sort Chas out but Carl gets him to leave it. Lisa takes Chas home and mentions that she saw Carl playing with the kids next door. Chas goes over to see Carl but as soon as she arrives Colleen appears and a slanging match breaks out between the two women. Carl tells Chas to go away because it’s over. Later that evening Chloe offers Carl a glass of wine. She is delighted when Carl admits he’s relieved that it’s over with Chas.
Betty takes her search for gossip to the Woolpack. She gets nowhere until Louise puts her in the picture. Betty takes Edna aside to get the full story about her accident. Betty is reluctant to reveal where Seth is and tells people that he’s stayed in Australia to top up his tan. She comes clean with Edna though and tells her that she came home after a row with Seth. She admits that she was feeling homesick while he loved it out there. Betty is amused to see Charity with Tom King. Tom looks uncomfortable when Betty says hello to him.
Robert jokes to Katie, as she dishes up Victoria’s tea, that she’ll make a lovely wife some day. Victoria replies that she’s already Andy’s wife. Later, Victoria returns from school and Katie isn’t there to let her in because she’s talking to Matthew King about a job. Victoria heads off to see Andy. He has a go at Katie for being irresponsible when she comes to pick Victoria up. Cain and Debbie return while Kate is there. When she’s gone Debbie wants to know what she was doing there. Andy is amused by Debbie’s jealousy.
Donna continues to help Marlon with the kids. The eldest boy Luke jokes that they should call Donna Marlon’s girlfriend. Marlon and Donna go for a drink that evening. Tom and Charity are also in the Woolpack. Charity is forced to tell Marlon that he won’t be able to do the catering for the wedding because Sadie’s been sticking her nose in again.
