Review :-
A desperate Robert tries to convince Katie of his feelings, unaware he may be too late.
Zak finds himself forced to set Shadrach up... with a hot date.
Charity and Tom grow closer over work.


Infatuated Robert tries to win Katie back, but she tells him he missed his chance

After Jack’s (Clive Hornby) ultimatum, Robert (Karl Davies) was forced to choose his family over his lover Katie. But as the dust settles, his infatuation outweighs the loyalty he feels towards Jack (Clive Hornby) and Andy (Kelvin Fletcher), and he is desperate to tell Katie (Sammy Winward) he has made a huge mistake.

He tracks her down but Katie is not in a forgiving mood and, with her marriage in tatters, she angrily tells him he had his chance and he blew it.

Meanwhile things are pretty crowded at the Dingles’. Lisa (Jane Cox) is fed up with sleeping on the couch, whilst Shadrach (Andy Devine) sleeps in her bed. Zak (Steve Halliwell) reassures her that Shadrach could be locked away in two days time when he goes to court over the whisky theft.

Later Shadrach reminds them he is taking the rap for Zak and Sam (James Hooton) and makes a few demands in return. He insists that they get him a date for his last night of freedom.

When Steph (Lorraine Chase) later asks Zak if she can store some dodgy stock at the Dingles’, he sees an opportunity and agrees to accept the stock on the understanding that she meets him the following night in the pub to discuss returning the favour. How will Steph react when Zak sends Shadrach along in his place?

Despite one of the Dingle dogs devouring an important work file, Charity (Emma Atkins) continues to prove her worth to Tom King (Ken Farrington). Her hard graft pays off when he agrees to give her a permanent position working for the family business.

ITV.COM What Have I Done? Sunday 25.04.04
After failing to stand up to Jack and admit he loves Katie Robert regrets making a huge mistake. He goes to see Katie in the pub but Diane asks him to leave. Robert hangs around the pub and Katie later agrees to speak with him. She tells Robert that he only really thinks of himself and she’s decided to get on with her life and it is definitely over between them. Andy is increasingly unhappy as Katie refuses any kind of intimacy with him. Jack worries that he will work out what’s been going on between Katie and his brother.
In return for taking the rap over the stolen whisky Shadrach insists that his every whim is granted during his remaining days of freedom. Not content with taking over Zak and Lisa’s conjugal bed while they sleep on the sofa Shadrach has a final demand. He demands that Zak finds him a hot date for his last night as a free man. Zak attempts to persuade Shelly into an act of kindness for an old man who is down on his luck, but she runs from The Woolpack in horror when she learns that Shadrach is the old man in question.
When Eric surprises Steph by turning up at the factory, after returning early from Japan, she decides she has to get rid of the hot mobiles quickly. She turns to Zak for help and asks whether she can store some boxes in his barn. Seeing a golden opportunity Zak says that one favour deserves another and arranges to meet her to discuss what sort of favour she'll have to do in return. Also, at the Dingles, Charity is delighted that Tom King has given her a permanent job. Debbie is not impressed and still refuses to have anything to do with her.
