Their clash of personalities comes to a head and Louise has no qualms in telling Chas’s estranged husband Gordon (Gerard Fletcher) that Chas recently lost her temper and slapped her son Aaron’s (Daniel Webb) face.

Furious, Gordon confronts Chas telling her she is no longer fit to be a mother and that she has blown her chance of regular access to their son.

All guns blazing, Chas can’t help showing her fiery side once more. Feeling betrayed, she squares up to Louise, giving her a swift crack across the jaw which results in her getting the sack.

Meanwhile, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) tries to keep her dignity as she cleans the vicarage for the last time before she emigrates to Finland for her new job. Having been initially rejected by Ashley (John Middleton), the heartbroken cleaner is determined to keep her distance from him and politely turns down his offer of lunch.

Despite her sadness, Laurel remains professional and efficiently goes about her job, unaware that Ashley is becoming confused by his growing feelings for her.

Elsewhere in the village, Dawn (Julia Mallam) is feeling down as she struggles to look after two dependants. Having finally settled her crying baby down for the night, she looks forward to spending some quality time with Terry (Billy Hartman). But her plans to seduce him are thwarted when she finds that he has fallen asleep as well.

Full of remorse after belting her son Aaron, Chas decides to take an impromptu day-off from The Woolpack. When she bumps into Louise in the street, the landlady is less than impressed. Bob is the first to feel Louise’s wrath as she forces him to work Chas’s shift. Still fuming when Aaron’s dad arrives at the pub looking for Chas, Louise wastes not time in telling Gordon that Chas and Aaron have fallen out. After Gordon confronts Chas in the pub and tells her she’s unfit to be a mother Chas is fuming and floors Louise with a right-hook after she discovers Louise told Gordon about her hitting Aaron.
