Determined to get her man at any cost, Val (Charlie Hardwick) turns up to see Danny (Cleveland Campbell) and begins to flirt outrageously. Before Danny knows what’s hit him, Val is unbuttoning his shirt. Despite the initial shock Danny can’t help but feel flattered.

When Rodney (Patrick Mower) interrupts the moment, Val makes her excuses and disappears, leaving Rodney to assume that it is him she is after.

Elsewhere in the village, Marlon (Mark Charnock) is still refusing to come out of the attic, and Viv gives Chas (Lucy Pargeter) the sack after an argument at work.
