Will Emily be able to persuade Marlon to leave the attic before the Kings resort to strong arm tactics?
Debbie struggles to cope when Charity tells her some devastating news.
Val continues to play with fire by seeing both Rodney and Danny.

Debbie (Charley Webb) can’t bear the thought of losing her baby brother, and desperately tries to persuade Charity (Emma Atkins) to keep Noah.

Tom makes Zoe and offer on Holdgate Farm

Millionaire Tom King (Ken Farrington) is keen to take a look at Holdgate Farm with a view to buying the property from Zoe (Leah Bracknell). He arranges to have a look around the house.

Upstairs, Marlon (Mark Charnock) is making adjustments to Tricia’s shrine when he hears footsteps in the house below. He accidentally knocks something over, and as it crashes to the floor he realises he has been heard.

Tom is quick to go looking for the source of the noise and Marlon is terrified as he tries to get into the loft. When Emily (Kate McGregor) explains Marlon’s situation, Tom is unsympathetic and gives him a day to get out.

Later Zoe and Tom negotiate a price for the land, and Tom agrees to get his solicitor on the case as soon as possible.

Elsewhere in the village, Debbie (Charley Webb) can’t bear the thought of losing her baby brother, and desperately tries to persuade Charity (Emma Atkins) to keep Noah.

Charity looks at her helpless baby.

Aware that she will soon be back in prison full-time, Charity sees no option but to give the baby up for adoption. But with Debbie adamant that Cain is the father, will Charity change her mind?

ITV.COM The Mad Dingle In The Attic Friday 19.03.04
Tom agrees to give Emily twenty four hours to get Marlon out of the attic.
When Tom King goes to give Holdgate Farm the once over before agreeing to buy the place from Zoe he hears Marlon moving about up in the attic and goes to investigate. Tom’s son Jimmy is all for breaking the door down and evicting Marlon on the spot but fortunately Emily arrives and explains Marlon’s situation to Tom, who agrees to give her twenty four hours to get Marlon out of there. Unfortunately for Emily, Marlon says the attic is his and is showing no signs of wanting to budge.
Val and Siobhan
Val enjoys a night of passion with Danny and their secret is nearly out when Laurel brings Val a morning cuppa. Danny dives under the bed just in time to ensure things remain secret for the time being at least. At lunchtime Rodney has a little surprise for Val, who later shows Siobhan some very expensive looking jewellery. Elsewhere in the village Simon has bought Nicola a ring and it looks as if he may be proposing to her without actually coming out and saying it…
At the hospital Debbie is upset to learn from Charity that if baby Noah’s health improves she will have to go back to prison sooner rather than later. Debbie is adamant that Charity must keep Noah and not give her new brother up for adoption. Zak meanwhile waits on the paternity test results and remains convinced that the baby is his grandson.
