Simon and Nicola have a brief engagement

Simon and Nicola have a brief engagement

Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) is so confident that Simon (Dale Meeks) is about to pop the question that she begins announcing their engagement before he’s even proposed. Her premature news quickly backfires, however, when Chloe (Amy Nuttall) spills the beans to Rodney (Patrick Mower) who cracks open the champagne.

Although smug Nicola admits she’s jumped the gun a little, she insists she’ll have a rock on her finger before the week is out. She is blissfully unaware that Simon has been agonising over what to do, since he caught her red-handed with Syd (Nathan Gladwell).

Luckily for the feisty blonde he decides to take a gamble and asks for her hand in marriage.

Nicola instantly accepts, but in all the excitement, she lets it slip that she knew he was going to ask, leaving Simon suspicious at what else she is hiding.

Things quickly turn sour when Simon finally asks Nicola why she lied to him about the reunion. Shocked that he knows, Nicola struggles to explain and only adds fuel to the fire. As she flounders Simon loses all faith in their relationship and calls off the shortest engagement in history.

Meanwhile, Nicola is also in the doghouse with Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) after spreading rumours about the cleaner’s sex life and causing embarrassment for her and the vicar, Ashley (John Middleton).

Eric is relieved to finally see the back of Steph

Elsewhere in the village, Pollard (Chris Chittell) is fed up with Steph’s (Lorraine Chase) clutter and decides she’s outstayed her welcome. When she returns home from work she is shocked to find out she’s homeless, as Pollard tells her to sling her hook.

When Simon reminds her he’s taking his mum Nicola says she thought he was joking. Simon brings up Nicola taking Syd to her school reunion and wants to know why if he’s not good enough for that do how can she assume that he must take her to his do? Simon tells Nicola that he can’t marry someone who’s ashamed him.

Within seconds of promising not to tell anyone Nicola tells Val who is desperate to pass on the latest bit of village gossip. With everyone else behind the bar too busy to stop and listen Val makes the mistake of telling Edna. Edna confronts Ashley in the street and threatens to write to the bishop if she hears anymore about his fornication.
