Cain (Jeff Hordley) suggests to Charity (Emma Atkins) that they use the money from Zoe (Leah Bracknell) to find somewhere to live in order to get Debbie (Charley Webb) back.

in their car and watch in horror. They plead with her to stop but Debbie is furious that £10,000 means more to Charity than her son.

As Debbie ignites the cash, Charity watches in disbelief as her only hope of a comfortable future goes up in smoke before her eyes. She scrambles around on the floor trying to salvage some of the notes, much to Debbie’s disgust.

Later, Charity reflects on the events of recent months and realises that her freedom has cost her a stake in the Tate fortune and both of her children. Heartbroken, she breaks down on Cain.

Elsewhere in the village, Zoe introduces baby Christopher Frank (Alfie Mortimer) to Joseph (Oliver Young), telling him he’s his new brother.

Meanwhile, when Siobhan (Abigail Fisher) confirms Victoria’s (Hannah Midgley) silence must be psychological, Katie (Sammy Winward) and Robert (Karl Davies) worry their affair will soon be exposed when Jack (Clive Hornby) takes Victoria to the doctors.

Sure enough, when Jack returns from the doctors he tells Robert that they think Victoria’s silence has been caused by a traumatic experience and that he has got to see a specialist. Robert is beside himself as Jack states that he will kill anyone who has hurt his daughter.
