Chloe at her interview with Jimmy, Tom and Matthew

Pearl begins to prepare her neighbours for Frank’s arrival when she tells Dawn that her son is thinking of coming to live with her.

Pearl (Meg Johnson) begins to prepare her neighbours for Frank’s arrival when she tells Dawn that her son is thinking of coming to live with her. She avoids mentioning that he’s been in prison.

Pearl is horrified and it is a nasty shock when she returns home to find a reporter and photographer on her doorstep.

Pearl reluctantly lets them in and the reporter grills her about Frank’s past and asks her whether she’s told her neighbours about her son’s crimes.

Len (Peter Martin) is furious when he arrives to find the journalist probing an uncomfortable Pearl and throws him out. They leave threatening to run the story.

Viv (Deena Payne) soon hears about the reporter’s visit and the nosy neighbour heads round to Jacob’s Fold offering gifts. It’s not long before she starts asking questions and when Pearl realises the true reason for her visit she angrily demands that Viv leaves.

Fearing she will be driven from the village Pearl is devastated and clings to her hope that she can keep Frank’s past a secret. Len insists things may be easier if people know the truth and suggests Ashley may be able to help convince people that Frank deserves a second chance.

Unfortunately Terry (Billy Hartman) saw Len throw the reporters out and mentions this to Viv who decides to head to Jacob’s Fold under the pretext of giving Pearl some plums. Viv (Deena Payne) barges her way in and finds Ashley with Len and Pearl.

It’s not long before she starts asking questions and when she mentions the reporters Pearl realises the true reason for her visit and angrily demands that Viv leaves.

Chloe is at her interview with the Kings
Meanwhile Rodney (Patrick Mower) becomes irate as Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) tries to persuade him to allow Paul (Mathew Bose) to live with them. He eventually has a change of heart and asks his estranged son to stay.
Chloe is delighted to have got the job with Kings and Sons.

Elsewhere, Chloe (Amy Nuttall) dresses to kill and heads off to her interview at King & Sons.

As she waits outside after the interview Tom, Matthew and Jimmy deliberate over whether to give her the job.

Jimmy points out that the fact that Chloe didn’t own up to the incident with Jean suggests she can’t be trusted.

Matthew says that Chloe’s legs count in her favour.

Tom decides that Chloe can have the job because it will make the company look good if they are seen to be offering new jobs in the village. Chloe is thrilled when she is offered the job as PA at King and Son’s.

On her way out Chloe takes great delight in telling (Sammy Winward), who is late for her interview, that the job has gone.

Then Chloe relishes handing in her notice to Rodney.
