Andy ends his relationship with Debbie
Charity (Emma Atkins) gets a fright when Cain (Jeff Hordley) approaches her as she is leaving the house and unexpectedly presses her against the car to kiss her.

Unknown to Charity, the private investigator photographs their exchange and while Cain feels smug that he has finally trapped her, Charity is left bewildered and furious at his indecent behaviour.

Later that day, a post-hunt party gets underway at Home Farm and Sadie (Patsy Kensit) is full of glee having been shown the photographs of Charity and Cain. Sadie takes delight in making a seemingly heartfelt speech wishing Tom (Ken Farrington) and Charity a happy future together, but they are blissfully unaware of the chaos that she is about to cause.

Elsewhere, Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) ends his relationship with Debbie (Charley Webb) telling her that it’s not just him he has to worry about, he’s got Daz (Luke Tittensor) to think of as well. Debbie is left distraught as Andy walks away, riddled with guilt.
