Airing on ITV1

Laurel is disappointed when Nicola changes the roster meaning that she won’t be cleaning the vicarage. Longing to see Ashley, she is more than happy to babysit Gabby when the vicar asks for some help.

From YTV EMMERDALE Wednesday 11 February 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Laurel spends some quality time with Ashley who is unaware of her true feelings. Pictured: (L-R) Laura (CHARLOTTE BELLAMY), Gabby (ANNELISE MANOJLOVIC) and Ashley (JOHN MIDDLEDTON).

As Laurel plays with Gabby, Ashley is pleased as he likes having her around and asks if she has any other work commitments for that day. Laurel tells a white lie and secretly rings Nicola claiming she is unwell and cannot work for the rest of the day. They later enjoy a meal together and Ashley is so impressed with Laurel that he suggests she would be good at au pair work. Laurel is disheartened by his words, realising he can’t care that much for her if he is suggesting she go and work in another country. To make matters worse, Nicola later catches Laurel out and tells her off.

Having walked in on her father and best friend kissing the day before, Steph has taken the blossoming relationship badly and is behaving more childishly than ever. She later comes home to the B&B and tells Turner she is moving out, she would rather be dead than live under the same roof as them. Shelly offers to leave but Turner won’t hear of it.

Having heard that Pollard has gone into partnership with Steph, Rodney offers Pollard a quiet word of warning. But Pollard has already got more than he bargained for when Steph turns up on his doorstep with packed suitcases pleading homelessness.

ITV.COM Poison and Courage Wednesday 11.02.04
Eric has put new minority business partner Steph up for the night, but once the deal is official he finds her ordering him around and a turf war over desks breaks out. Shelly isn't sure she's worth Alan having another rift with his daughter, and is dreading work with Steph as her boss. Her fears are justified when Steph cruelly bullies her - the tub of lard who was dropped by all her friends. Steph later catches Shelly telling Alan of her day, accusing her of telling tales. She'd rather be dead than stay with the two of them, and tells Shelly she'll soon be completely alone as Alan's 'not got long'. Lisa and Rodney both warn Eric he may have picked the wrong business partner, and he's looking rattled to find even more of Steph's stuff in his house.
Katie's finally taking an interest in organising her wedding again, to the relief of Donna, even though the costs terrify her. Robert brings her a really expensive necklace he's bought as a token of remembering the time they had. She reluctantly accepts it.

Chas spends time chatting to skateboarding son Aaron before his dad picks him up. Their talk about family brings them a little closer.
Nicola decides to suddenly change the rota so Laurel isn't looking after Ashley any more, but he blindly asks her to babysit instead of clean. Laurel persuades Pearl to cover for her, and has to lie when he asks her to stay late. He suggests she take up au pair work because she's so good at cleaning and with kids, which wasn't what she wanted to hear. When Diane publicly buys Laurel a drink for supporting Ashley, Nicola is furious to have lost money. Emily suggests Laurel tells Ashley outright, which Nicola thinks is madness, but Laurel decides she will find out once and for all.
