Review :-

With Katie gone, Andy and Robert face up to the error of their way but can they forgive and forget?
Puzzled by Simon’s behaviour, Nicola makes a dangerous assumption.
Laurel confronts Ashley with her fears but will he take the bull by the horns?


Ashley mistakenly thinks that Laurel wants to marry him

vicar Ashley Thomas gets the fright of his life.

Victoria (Hannah Midgley) is clearly missing Andy (Kelvin Fletcher), and appears to be suffering from the family break-up. Worried about his little sister, Robert (Karl Davies) later finds Andy and attempts to mend their broken relationship.

Robert asks Andy to come into the house, telling him he will talk to Jack (Clive Hornby) in a bid to smooth things over. Having nearly killed Jack, Andy can’t see the point, certain it is beyond repair. Is there really no hope of a reconciliation?

Meanwhile, Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) notices there is something fishy about Simon’s (Dale Meeks) behaviour and it isn’t just his deliveries.

She notices a ring box in his van, but when she questions her boyfriend, he insists it contains a pair of cufflinks he borrowed from Paddy (Dominic Brunt). Jumping to conclusions, Nicola tells Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) that she is convinced Simon is planning to propose. Is she in for a disappointment?

Laurel gets caught in a cheeky position

Pleased with her own love life, Nicola offers advice to an excitable Laurel. Nicola suggests that Laurel tries to seduce Ashley (John Middleton) with a saucy bra, but when she later whips up her top to reveal her new purchase Paddy gets a shock as he accidentally cops an eyeful.

Paddy gets an eyefull

Later, Ashley comes across Nicola in the café, poring over wedding magazines. With Laurel’s new underwear in mind, Nicola can’t resist telling Ashley she hopes their evening goes well and tells him to say yes to Laurel.

Ashley mistakenly panics that Laurel wants to get hitched, and later takes her aside explaining that he isn’t ready for marriage.

ITV.COM An Imminent Proposal? Friday 04.06.04
Although Simon has been avoiding her Nicola is convinced that he’s about to propose. When she spots a ring box in his van Simon tells her it’s cufflinks he’s borrowed from Paddy. When Simon goes round to see Nicola to speak have it out with her he realises that she’s expecting him to propose so he makes his excuses and leaves. Later he tells a sceptical Paddy that he’s doesn’t want to confront Nicola for fear of losing her but he’s still prepared to ask her to marry him despite her taking Syd to the school reunion and lying about it.
Lisa Dingle tries to convince Andy that it is pointless to harbour a grudge and he should make the first move in patching things up with Jack. When he goes round to Jack’s Victoria is playing outside and is delighted to see him until Jack comes out and orders her to come in immediately. Victoria refuses to go in but Andy decides to leave. Robert goes after Andy with a beer and tries to patch things up with Andy who is still very bitter. Robert asks Andy to come back to Jack’s with him but he refuses.
Paddy gets more than he bargained for when Laurel shows off her new balconette bra to Nicola. Convinced that her new underwear will have the desired effect on the hesitant vicar she tells Nicola that tonight will be the night. When Nicola runs into Ashley in the café and talks about wedding arrangements and mentions Laurel Ashley is thrown into a panic believing that Laurel has been thinking about getting hitched. Fortunately Laurel laughs at Ashley concerns about the ‘m-word’ and despite the now customary interruption from Ethan the couple end up in bed together.
