Robert tells Andy he and Katie are in love.

Katie (Sammy Winward) finally finds the courage to walk out on her husband and leaves her wedding ring with a letter to Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) before being picked up by Chas (Lucy Pargeter). Halfway to the railway station she decides that she owes it to Andy to tell him face-to-face and insists that they turn back.

Meanwhile Andy arrives home and sees the letter from Katie. As he sits and reads it in silence, tears of disbelief fall down his face. He immediately phones his Dad, but when Robert (Karl Davies) hears him leaving a message he answers the phone and races to his distraught brother’s side.


As they talk, Katie appears and tells Andy she couldn’t leave without saying goodbye. Robert can bear it no longer and takes Katie’s hand, insisting they tell Andy the truth. Robert turns to his brother and confesses that he and Katie are in love. How will Andy react to this shattering betrayal?

Zoe (Leah Bracknell) tells Scott (Ben Freeman) that she and Jean (Meg Johnson) are going away to Brussels. She insists the trip is not because of him, and they part on good terms, but Scott is sad to watch her go. Will the break give Zoe the chance to contemplate a relationship with Scott?

Elsewhere in the village, Ethan (Liam O’Brien) discovers the missing communion wine and confronts Shadrach (Andy Devine) about the theft. Ethan agrees to give him a second chance if Shadrach will attend bible studies. Ethan later craftily refills the communion wine bottle with vinegar, and Shadrach gets an unpleasant surprise when he goes for a sneaky drink.

The truth is out - Robert, Andy and Katie
Katie finally finds the courage to walk out on Andy and leaves behind a letter. On her way to the station she decides she must say goodbye to Andy face to face. By the time she returns Andy has read the letter and Robert is by his side, after picking up his brother’s distraught phone message for Jack. When Katie insists on speaking to Andy alone Robert refuses to go and tells Katie that they must finally tell Andy the truth. Andy is stunned as Robert tells him that he and Katie are in love.
Shadrach and Ethan
When Ashley and Ethan discover Shadrach weaving erratically about the churchyard in charge of a lawnmower it doesn’t take Ethan long to realise that Shadrach has been helping himself to the communion wine. When Ethan threatens to tell Shadrach’s probation officer what he’s been up to Shadrach reluctantly agrees to endure some bible study. When Shadrach goes for another crafty swig of communion wine, he finds that the Lord does indeed move in mysterious ways as Ethan has replaced the wine with vinegar.
Scott sees Zoe off on her travels
Zoe tells Scott that she and Jean are going away to Brussels to visit an old flame off hers. She insists the trip has nothing to do with getting away from him following their kiss and they part on good terms, but Scott is sad to watch her go and tells her that she must let him know that they’ve arrived safely. Later, in the Woolpack Scott tells Syd that he is missing Zoe. Syd tells Scott he should get used to her not being around because there’s no future in getting involved with Zoe.
