Review :-

Andy is a nervous wreck as Jack shows signs of recovery and demands some answers.

Donna gets the wrong idea when Marlon tries to let her down gently.

Victoria, Diane, Jack Andy and Robert.

Jack finally regains consciousness and Andy fears he will tell the police the truth about the shooting.


Diane (Liz Estensen) keeps vigil at unconscious Jack’s (Clive Hornby) bedside,

Jack opens his eyes

telling him upbeat stories about her travels. She becomes emotional when she realises they never got round to planning their wedding as he lies motionless beside her.


But her tears turn to hope as a doctor suddenly ushers her out of the room telling her Jack has begun to stir. Meanwhile the police hover in the corridor waiting to pounce on Jack to grill him about the suspicious circumstances surrounding the shooting.

Jack with his two boys

Still groggy and weak, Jack slowly opens his eyes to see Diane who is overcome with joy as he gradually comes round. Meanwhile, Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) and Robert (Karl Davies) wait patiently in the wings not knowing how Jack will react when the reality of the situation hits home.

Jack finally asks to see Andy and asks everybody to leave the room. Andy is apprehensive as Jack tells him he knows he didn’t pull the trigger by accident and demands to know what happened.

Donna takes a shine to Marlon

Meanwhile, Luckless Donna (Verity Rushworth) has taken a shine to Marlon (Mark Charnock) and hatches a plan to bag her man. However Marlon doesn’t feel the same way and it appears she has got the wrong end of the stick again. But how will the troubled chef shake off his new admirer.

Terry and TJ

Having agreed to take TJ for the day, Terry (Billy Hartman) quickly becomes frustrated when the baby won’t stop crying – so much for quality time with his son. Exhausted, Terry feels deflated as he gives his son back after a stressful day.

Sydl and Nicola
