Andy gets a new farmhand but he’s not the best of workers.


Edna suffers a nasty fall at home after refusing to use a commode

Still determined not to use the commode, Edna (Shirley Stelfox) decides to take Tootsie for a walk so that she can use public amenities. But her humiliation deepens when she doesn’t make it in time and ends up having an accident.

Edna holds Tootsie close to her

After being reassured by a surprisingly sympathetic Viv (Deena Payne), Edna is at the end of her tether and shouts at Sam (James Hooton) that he has ruined her life and taken away her independence.

Later she attempts to climb the stairs to her bathroom but loses her footing and falls. Jarvis (Richard Moore) hears the crash and runs into the house to find Edna lying at the bottom of the stairs. Will Edna survive another set back?

Tom asks Charity to move in

Meanwhile, Charity (Emma Atkins) resolves to ignore her doubts about the adoption. She convinces Tom (Ken Farrington) that she does not want the baby back and Tom tries to cheer her up by asking her to move in with him.

After Zoe (Leah Bracknell) refuses to let her see the baby, Charity confides in Chas (Lucy Pargeter) that she is feeling unsure but simply can’t risk ruining things with Tom by keeping the child.

Edna continues to refuse help from her neighbours and refusing to use the commode sets of for Café Hope to use the toilet. When she has an accident Viv offers her sympathy. She offers her a cup of tea and tells her that her mother had to give in and use a commode in the end. Edna angrily returns home to find that Sam has built her a ramp. She tells him to go and take his ramp with him. She then attempts to climb the stairs and falls. Jarvis comes to her rescue. Again wetting herself she tells him she has lost her independence and doesn’t want to live anymore.
Tom has good news for Charity, telling her she can move in with him and Carl can have the house he bought for her. Charity is preoccupied with the adoption and tells Tom that she keeps thinking about how she missed out on the first 14 years of Debbie’s life. She tells him that she doesn’t want her son back. Later she sees who refuses to let her see Christopher. Charity complains to Chas that Zoe wouldn’t let her hold the baby and Chas tells her she sounds as if she wants the baby back. Charity is adamant that she doesn’t want any such thing.
Marlon asks Paddy if he will help convince the police that Andy’s cow was found dead and disposed off correctly. Paddy agrees to put his career on the line to help Sam out. Cain wants to know why Lisa has inflicted Shadrach on him at Andy’s. Lisa tells him it is to help Sam out. Cain gets the hump and wonders why no one bothered to raise money for a lawyer for him when he went to jail for helping Charity out. Lisa tells Cain he can move back in if he apologises to Sam.
Len is not happy with the idea that whether or not he goes on holiday depends on whether it’s okay with Frank Barnard. When Pearl arrives on the bus he is pleased to learn that they are going away after all but reminds her that Frank Barnard is a grown man and it is time he stood on his own two feet.
