Rodney and Danny have a fight over Val

Val (Charlie Hardwick) fails in her attempts to end her fling with Danny (Cleveland Campbell) and the pair end up in a passionate embrace in the antiques barn. The rendezvous is caught on CCTV without their knowledge, and when some antiques are stolen later that day, Rodney (Patrick Mower) plays back the tape only to witness Val and Danny’s clinch.

Fistsl fly between Rodney and Danny

Furious that Val has been two-timing him, Rodney pins Danny up against a wall but Danny is equally shocked to discover Val’s betrayal. The pair decide to confront her together, but when Rodney makes a sarcastic comment to Danny the punches begin to fly.

It’s not long before the pair are rolling around on the village green with a captive audience. Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) is furious when she learns the reason for the fight and screams at her sister to go inside.

Meanwhile, Marlon (Mark Charnock) shows Turner (Richard Thorp) a thank you letter he has received from the family of Carrie (Laura Crossley), the girl who received Tricia’s donated heart. Turner realises that this is the same girl that he read about in a local newspaper. He shows the article to Marlon who becomes curious to learn more about Carrie.

Having sought legal advice, Dawn (Julia Mallam) is annoyed to learn that the only way she’ll be able to take TJ abroad is to get permission from Terry (Billy Hartman). Bob (Tony Audenshaw) suggests she go alone and leave TJ with him, but Dawn is adamant that she can’t leave her baby behind.

ITV.COM Caught In The Act Sunday 04.04.04
When Siobhan urges Val to act on her decision to finish with Danny things don’t go to plan. When Val visits Danny at work he has only one thing on his mind. The amorous pair enjoy a passionate kiss and arrange to meet up later. Unfortunately for Danny he has forgotten that his CCTV equipment is recording everything. Later, when two light-fingered pensioners take advantage of Danny’s absence and walk away with some antiques figurines, Danny has a lot of explaining to do when he returns to work to find Rodney looking at the CCTV footage.
Rodney grabs Danny by the throat and pins him up against the wall. Danny is at a loss to understand Rodney’s violent reaction to what he’s seen, but eventually the pair realise that Val has been two-timing them and set off to have a word with her. Once they catch up with her the two men end up turning on each other and Rodney punches Danny to the ground. As most of the village looks on Danny gives Rodney a taste of his own medicine. When Diane arrives, with Jack who stops the fight, she is horrified to learn that Rodney’s been sleeping with Val. She orders Val inside and gives Rodney a severe tongue lashing.
Marlon shows Alan a thank you letter he has received from the family of Carrie, the girl who received Tricia’s donated heart. Alan realises that this is the same girl that he read about in a local newspaper - she is a swimmer and has started to train again following her transplant op. He shows the article to Marlon who becomes curious to learn more about Carrie. However when Emily finds Marlon reading Alan’s newspaper article Marlon pretends he’s reading the football results.
