Sadie isn’t pleased when Jimmy gets good news from his doctor.

Alan enjoys the Dingles company, much to Steph’s annoyance.

Siobhan gets twitchy as Matthew moves in.


Siobhan tells Chloe that she suspects she might be pregnant

Jimmy (Nick Miles) collects his fertility test results and is thrilled to discover that there is nothing to stop him from fathering a child. Despite his joy he can’t help but worry that maybe his wife is the one with the problem.

Sadie (Patsy Kensit) is furious when she finds out that Jimmy has gone to the doctors and is irate when her husband insists she should also pay their GP a visit. She eventually books an appointment, but is clearly put out when Jimmy is adamant that he goes with her.

Over at the Woolpack, Zak (Steve Halliwell) worries when a depressed Turner (Richard Thorp) confesses to him that he is still missing Shelly (Carolyn Pickles). Steph (Lorraine Chase) tries her hardest to get close to her father, but he is clearly disinterested, leaving Steph feeling worthless.

Meanwhile, an emotional Siobhan (Abigail Fisher) confides to Chloe (Amy Nuttall) that she suspects that she might be pregnant. Chloe feels for her friend realising that the baby will never know it’s father and recognising the bitter irony given Paul’s desperation to become a father.

ITV.COM Staying Put Sunday 05.09.04
Siobhan confides in Chloe that she is reluctant to move and tells her the reason why: she is expecting Paul’s baby and would like his child to grow up in the village. Siobhan breaks down as she tells Chloe how happy Paul would have been at the news she was expecting. Siobhan’s mood brightens when she remembers how sympathetic Matthew King has been and calls him to ask whether he would let her rent the house. Matthew is less than sympathetic and tells Siobhan that the best he can do is arrange for a removal firm to help her move.
Broody Jimmy dotes on baby Noah before going to pick up his fertility test results. He is relieved to learn that there is no problem with his sperm count. He asks the doctor whether the contraceptive injections that Sadie used to take could cause problems with her fertility. The doctor looks distinctly uncomfortable as he says that the best thing would be for Sadie to come in and see him.
When Jimmy tells Sadie about his test results she reacts angrily and accuses him of trying to suggest that she has a fertility problem. She reluctantly agrees that she will go and see the doctor but is not keen on Jimmy’s suggestion that they go together to see him. As soon as Jimmy’s back is turned Sadie angrily phones the surgery and demands to speak to her GP. When she’s told that he’s not there she makes an appointment for first thing in the morning. She gets a start when Jimmy walks up behind her and is curious about what's she's up to.
Alan continues to spend his days drinking in the Woolpack with Zak. Steph tells him that his plan of closing the B & B for a while is a bad idea. She refuses to listen to Alan’s protests that he wants to take a holiday and insists that she will help him keep the business going.
