Review :-
After Paul’s funeral Matthew lands himself a property deal with the grieving widow.

As Steph’s gossip spreads, Shelly is certain people are talking about her.

Charity struggles to find her maternal instinct.


Carl struggles as the villagers attend Paul’s funeral

Carl struggles to face Siobhan on the day of Paul's funeral

It’s the day of Paul’s funeral, and Carl (Tom Lister) struggles to contain his guilt as Matthew (Matt Healy) reveals that he plans to attend. Noting his son’s behaviour, Tom (Ken Farrington) grows suspicious that something is going on.

The locals later gather in the pub after the service, and grieving Siobhan (Abigail Fisher) tells Matthew that she needs to move on and that the house is his if he still wants it. He agrees to make an offer.

Carl walks in and, verging on tears, he tells Siobhan how sorry he is. Seeing the state he’s in, Matthew panics that he’s about to say too much and drags him out. Tom later overhears the brothers arguing. How long will it be before he discovers their dark secret?

Elsewhere in the village, Ashley (John Middleton) tries to console forlorn Zoe (Leah Bracknell), whilst Charity (Emma Atkins) realises that she has her work cut out as she struggles to calm down a wailing Noah (Alfie Mortimer) – much to Sadie’s (Patsy Kensit’s) delight.

Donna (Verity Rushworth) is still fuming over Katie (Sammy Winward) moving in with Danny, and warns her to stay away from her boyfriend. Katie does her best to make amends, but Donna is not interested.

Robert (Karl Davies) later worries when Katie declines his offer of an evening out in favour of a night alone, but she assures him she just wants to take things slowly.

Val and Viv have a field day with their favourite piece of gossip when Alan orders champagne in the Woolpack to celebrate Shelly giving up work.
