Terry and Dawn toast new beginnings.


Rodney throws Val out of his house and she decides to leave the village

Rodney has spent the night drowning his sorrows

Rodney (Patrick Mower) is in a terrible state after Val’s (Charlie Hardwick) shock revelation the previous day.

When Danny arrives to open up the Antiques Barn he finds Rodney has spent the night there drowning his sorrows. Danny tells him it’s time to forget about Diane and move on.

When Val turns up desperate to patch things with Rodney she is met with a stony silence. Paul later visits Rodney and tells him that if he doesn’t love her he must put her out of her misery once and for all or she will spend the rest of her life thinking that they are meant to be together. As Paul leaves Rodney looks on admiringly at the son he’s never known.



Val apologises profusely, but her pleas fall on deaf ears as furious Rodney refuses to listen.

Later on, Paul (Mathew Bose) approaches Rodney and tells him that he is returning to Sorrento tomorrow and doesn’t want to leave his mum in limbo. He asks his father to be honest with Val about his feelings towards her.

Rodney takes his son’s words on board and goes to see Val. He tells Val that he doesn’t love her and asks her to move out.

They admit that they have both made a real mess of things.

Val tells Rodney that now he knows about Paul, their son can be a bond between them. This infuriates Rodney who tells Val that she has robbed him of Paul’s childhood.

Rodney tells Val that she has until the morning to get out of Mill Cottage for good.


When he finds Val sitting alone in the cricket pavilion with nowhere else to go, Paul finds himself sympathising with his mothe.

Paul invites her to go back to Sorrento with him and she gratefully agrees. Paul tells her that she can come and work at his bar in Sorrento while she gets herself together.

Over at the B & B, Turner (Richard Thorp) feels like a new man after a visit from Marlon (Mark Charnock) and tells his daughter that he intends to get out and about more.


Alan’s spirits are lifted by another visit from Marlon, who tells him the incredible story of Diane and Jack’s wedding day.


Fearing she may be losing her control, Steph (Lorraine Chase) is livid and politely insists to Marlon that her father needs his rest.

When Steph returns Alan tells her that he has decided to take Marlon’s advice and cut down on his medication and get out and about. Steph reminds Alan that Marlon is a chef not a doctor.

Steph heads off to the Woolpack and tells Marlon that his visits have worn her father out. Steph’s tactics seem to have worked as Marlon is left feeling responsible for the deterioration in Alan’s condition.

Meanwhile, Terry (Billy Hartman) is thrilled when Dawn (Julia Mallam) announces that she will not be moving to Spain. He agrees that she can buy into their house to give her some security and they toast to a new start.

Terry is thrilled when Dawn announces that she will not be moving to Spain.

Terry agrees to let Dawn buy a share of the house.

As they toast their success in the Woolpack Louise looks on and is upset to see Terry getting on so well with his soon to be ex-wife.
