ITV1 Network Wednesday 8 December 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Review :-

Cain pumps Sadie for cash to deal with his problems at home.
Simon and Nicola become torn between Rodney and Lesley.
A suspicious Tom dispatches of Dean.


Knowing he urgently needs to come up with some cash, Cain (Jeff Hordley) heads to the garage and slams Robert (Karl Davies) against a car, threatening to talk to Jimmy (Nick Miles) if he doesn’t give him some money. Terrified Robert relents and unlocks the petty cash tin and Cain goes on his way.

Cain later confronts Sadie (Patsy Kensit) but when he asks for more money she laughs in his face, pointing out that he has no evidence.

Desperate to raise the money Cain asks Debbie (Charley Webb) for her mobile phone. Realising that her dad is in hot water she reluctantly hands it over. A little later Parker (Conor Ryan) and Fewson (Anthony Bessick) turn up and are furious that Cain hasn’t raised enough cash. They insist they will be back, threatening Debbie on their way out.

Elsewhere, as Charity (Emma Atkins) prepares for her meeting she wonders where Dean (Marc Bolton) is, but Tom (Ken Farrington) insists he will be taking her. Later that day, Tom and Charity go for a drink at the Woolpack and Tom admits that he was impressed with her. Charity is delighted and the couple look forward to their impending wedding.

Meanwhile, Simon (Dale Meeks) excitedly tells Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) that they have been invited to spend Christmas in Scarborough with his mother. Nicola doesn’t want to cause an argument but says she has already promised Rodney (Patrick Mower) that they will be with him and Paul (Mathew Bose).

ITV Update

Sadie calls his bluff, reminding him that when he had the watch he had compelling evidence, now he has nothing. That night Cain receives a visit from the heavies. They warn him they’ll be back for the rest of the money.
Sadie apologises to Tom for interfering in his relationship with Charity. Tom accepts the apology but tells her that the last thing they need is her stirring. Charity comes in in a panic because Dean is late to take her to the meeting. Tom tells Charity that Dean has work to do and he will be taking her. After the meeting they head for the Woolpack. Tom is impressed with Charity’s efforts in the meeting and she tells him that she wants him to think about what she can do for the company on a permanent basis.

Marlon tells Donna that she’s beginning to sound like her mother and if she’s not careful she’ll be wearing four-inch stilettos by the end of the week. Donna is horrified.
