Review :-

Marlon gets an unexpected near kiss at the village bonfire night.

Debbie tracks down Katie and issues her a threat.

Scott attempts to keep things sweet with Dawn.



Marlon and Donna share a charged moment

Marlon (Mark Charnock) invites Donna (Verity Rushworth) to go to the village bonfire with him and the kids that evening but is disappointed once again when she tells him she has already arranged to go with Danny (Cleveland Campbell).

The kids spend the day misbehaving and Marlon punishes them by saying they cannot go and see the fireworks. The docile Dingle eventually has a change of heart and when he turns up that evening he struggles to hide his delight when Donna tells him Danny couldn’t make it.

Later that night, Marlon thanks Donna for all her help and tells her that she has made the two weeks from hell bearable. In a charged moment they lean in for a kiss but are interrupted by one of the kids. Could romance be on the horizon?

Over at Connellton View, Dawn (Julia Mallam) comes downstairs to see Scott (Ben Freeman) playing with TJ (Connor Lee) and is clearly impressed at seeing his softer side. However, she later has a change of heart when she hears the disrespectful way that Scott speaks to Syd (Nathan Gladwell).

Meanwhile, Katie (Sammy Winward) tells Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) that she is concerned for him and warns him that Debbie (Charley Webb) and Cain (Jeff Hordley) are trouble. Andy furiously tells her she has no right to give her opinion, but when Debbie sees them talking she gets the wrong idea and warns Katie to stay away from Andy.

Based On The ITV.COM Updates

Marlon invites Donna to come to the fireworks with him. He is disappointed when she says that she’ll be there with Danny. At work Bob mentions the money that Luke borrowed from him. Marlon is not pleased that Luke has taken money from Bob and when he finds the boys running about in the street he tells them there’ll be no fireworks. The boys look miserable as the fireworks begin and Marlon relents. He is delighted to find Donna there without Danny.
Marlon is at his wits end when Mark goes missing. He is not happy when Luke comes up to him and tells him that he has some really bad news. Luke laughs as he tells Marlon the bad new is that he’s found Mark. Marlon is furious and takes the boys home. Donna comes with him and once the boys have gone up to bed Marlon tells Donna how much her help has meant to him. Donna says that she’s been happy to help and has been happy to be with him. They are about to kiss when Luke call out for Marlon.
Emily lets herself into the B&B magazines for Alan. Steph intercepts her and tells her that she won’t be able to see him. The phone rings and Emily takes the opportunity to go up to Alan’s room. Emily is shocked by Alan’s dishevelled appearance. Steph reappears and marches Emily out telling her that Alan isn’t up to visitors. Later, Alan asks who came to see him and Steph tells him that that he must have been dreaming. That evening at the bonfire Emily tells Ashley she is concerned that Steph isn’t coping very well with Alan.
Cain apologises to Andy for being so hard on Debbie. Andy tells Cain that it’s Debbie he should be apologising to. At the bonfire that night Katie warns Andy to stay away from Debbie because she’s trouble. Andy tells her she should move on and stop thinking about him. Later Debbie comes up to Katie and demands to know what the hell she’s doing. Katie says that Andy is her husband and she can speak to him whenever she likes. Debbie threatens Katie, warning her to keep away from Andy.
Sadie continues to try and organise Charity’s wedding for her. Mid slanging match the phone rings and Charity takes a message for Sadie from Zoe. She takes great delight in telling her rival that Zoe will be home soon and her days of playing lady muck will soon be over. Later in the Woolpack Sadie tells Jimmy that although Zoe will be back soon it doesn’t necessarily mean that they will have to book the removal van just yet.
