Sam leaves Edna for dead

Sam leaves Edna for dead

Sam (James Hooton) is upset when his chicken Belinda is diagnosed with Mycoplasma. He is further distraught when he returns home and discovers that the rest of his chickens also have the infection.

Paddy (Dominic Brunt) tells Sam to bring the chickens to him on a job in Robblesfield. In desperation, Sam piles all the chickens into Cain’s (Jeff Hordley) BMW and tears through the village. One of the birds leaps out of its box, causing Sam to swerve and lose control of the car.

Meanwhile, Edna (Shirley Stelfox) is walking Tootsie in the village

Meanwhile, Edna (Shirley Stelfox) is walking Tootsie in the village and sees the car hurtling towards her. Leaping to protect her dog, Edna is caught in the direct path of the car and is thrown into a ditch by the impact.

Horrified, Sam leaps out to find Edna unconscious.

Horrified, Sam leaps out to find Edna unconscious. He gives her a shake to try and bring her round but there is no response. Panicking, he gets back in the car and quickly goes home. Has Sam left Edna for dead?


Has Sam left Edna for dead?

Having put their troubles aside, Steph moves back in with Eric....

Elsewhere, having put their troubles aside, Steph (Lorraine Chase) moves back in with Pollard (Chris Chittell). Turner (Richard Thorp) invites them to dinner with him and Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) that evening, but Pollard has a prior engagement and Steph can’t face playing gooseberry so declines his offer.

Elsewhere, Ethan (Liam O’Brien) tells Debbie (Charley Webb) that there is a place spare on a Church trip to the Dordogne. Her ears prick up when Ethan explains the trip is free and she accepts the place with excitement. He goes on to explain that he won’t be going and Debbie’s face quickly drops.

ITV.COM Bird Brain Friday 18.06.04
Sam is in a flap when his hen Belinda comes down with a mystery ailment. Paddy says the infection is not serious but Sam is alarmed when more Dingle hens fall sick. Helpful as ever, Cain makes matters worse by telling Sam that his birds have caught Asian Bird Flu and will be dead in a matter of hours. When Sam phones Paddy the vet is out on a job but tells Sam to bring the hens to him. In a panic Sam piles his chickens into Cain’s BMW and tears through the village.
When one of the hens escapes from it’s cage and flaps about in the car Sam is unable to see where he is going and does not see Edna who has run out into the road after Tootsie. Hitting Edna Sam stops the car and goes to see what has happened, finding Edna unconscious in a ditch. Overwhelmed by what he’s done Sam drives away home and when Cain returns he tells his brother that he’s been at home all day. He tells Lisa the Sam thing later.
While Debbie hangs around outside the church waiting for Ethan and applying her make-up Daz joins her and tells her she looks better without make-up. It seems that while Debbie has a crush on the curate young Daz has a crush on her. When Debbie catches up with Ethan he offers her a place on a church trip to France. Although dubious about hanging out with a group of young Christians Debbie says she’d like to go on the trip, believing that Ethan will be going. She is soon disappointed when the curate reveals that he is not going on the trip.
Having spent the night with Zoe Scott is on cloud nine and refuses to let his mother put a dampener on things. Scott stops Viv in her tracks, just as she’s about to launch into a long spiel about how Zoe is using him, by inviting her round to Home Farm for tea. Treating the invitation as if it was an invite to tea at Buckingham Palace Viv is delighted with the thought that she will now be hobnobbing with the great and the good of Emmerdale. Later Scott is left feeling hurt as Zoe confesses that she’s still not comfortable sleeping with him.
