Review :-

Charity's charms begin to work on Tom forcing Jimmy and Matthew to take drastic action.

Andy turns his back on the Sugden's in favour of his real family.

In the pub, tensions between Chas and Louise reach a head.

Landlady Louise (Emily Symons) comes back from her holiday to find Chas has been reinstated at the pub

Charity (Emma Atkins) is fed up with her living arrangements after being forced to sleep on the sofa for the night while Chas (Lucy Pargeter) and Carl (Tom Lister) occupy the bed!

Despite her annoyance, Charity heads to work and Holdgate Farm is a hive of activity as Tom (Ken Farrington) and Matthew (Matt Healy) add the finishing touches to the birthday bash. Knuckling down, Charity is delighted when it appears her hard work is finally paying off when Tom asks her out for dinner.

Meanwhile, Jimmy (Nick Miles) receives a call from his wife Sadie (Patsy Kensit) who confirms she’s flying home the following day. Jimmy is delighted that she will be back in time for the party, convinced that she will put Charity in her place.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and Donna (Verity Rushworth) is still trying to come to terms with Robert (Karl Davies) and Katie’s (Sammy Winward) betrayal. Donna vents her anger on every unsuspecting male who crosses her path and Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) gets the brunt of her rage when she throws a pint over him in the pub.

Landlady Louise (Emily Symons) comes back from her holiday to find Chas has been reinstated at the pub in her absence. Angry that the fiery Dingle has wormed her way back behind the bar, Louise quickly asserts her authority by firing Chas for the second time before hiring Terry (Billy Hartman) and Val (Charlie Hardwick).

ITV.COM The Kings And I Sunday 09.05.04
The effort that Charity has put into organising Tom King’s party has not gone unnoticed. First Tom invites her out to lunch and then Matthew surprises her with a thank you present. With Tom firmly in her sights Charity turns Matthew’s offer of drink down. Later Matthew has a heart to heart with his Dad and Tom reveals that he does indeed have feelings for Charity. Charity is delighted that two of the Kings are interested in her, but she tells Chas that Tom is the man for her. Jimmy King hears from his wife Sadie that she will be home in time for his dad’s party.
After being mistreated by both Andy and Robert in the past twenty-four hours Donna is convinced that all men are pigs. Terry is the first in the firing line as Donna takes out her anger on the customers at the café. Later in the Woolpack Donna is upset to find Andy, Robert and Katie in the pub. When Andy attempts to apologise to her for his drunken pass she pours a pint over his head and storms out. Andy goes after her and apologies and the two of them are friends again.
Louise returns and quickly reverses Diana’s decision to rehire Chas by firing her again. Finding herself desperately short-staffed Louise hires Val and Terry, both of whom Diane has decided not to employ in the past. When Chas returns to the pub with Carl King in tow Louise is not impressed. Sharing a keen interest in local events Louise and Val soon hit it off.
