Review :-

Terry is gutted when Dawn uses the court to take revenge on him.

Donna chases her man with gusto - but he's more alarmed than charmed.

Nicola's vanity gets the better of her when an invitation arrives.


Nicola receives an invitation to a school reunion

Terry (Billy Hartman) takes Louise (Emily Symons) aside and apologises again for the previous night. He explains that with the court hearing only hours away, the last thing he needs is to lose her support. They agree to put it behind them and remain friends.


Meanwhile, Bob (Tony Audenshaw) is troubled by what he saw the night before and tells Dawn (Julia Mallam) about the kiss he witnessed between Louise and Terry. Dawn reacts with fury, convinced they have been having an affair behind her back.

Determined to get revenge, Dawn tells the courts that Terry is unfit to be a father. He is devastated that his encounter with Louise has ruined his chances of gaining access to his son.


Meanwhile, Donna (Verity Rushwoth) gets dressed up to the nines and spends the afternoon trying to impress Marlon (Mark Charnock). Her affection for the chef doesn’t go unnoticed and Val (Charlie Hardwick) tells Marlon that she suspects Donna has developed a crush. He is left feeling apprehensive as she waves enthusiastically at him from across the bar.

Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) receives an invite to a school reunion and sees it as a great opportunity to prove herself to those who bullied her there. She needs a drop dead gorgeous hunk on her arm, but Simon (Dale Meeks) doesn’t quite fit the bill. Nicola decides to keep the reunion quiet from her boyfriend and find a man that will make them all green with envy.
