Matthew turns up the charm offensive

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM



Matthew (Matt Healy) displays his culinary skills to Terry (Billy Hartman) and Louise (Emily Symons) by cooking them Sunday lunch. He also invites his friend Sian (Maeve Larkin) and attempts to make Louise jealous by being openly flirtatious. However, when Sian realises what his motives are, she is unimpressed and refuses to play second fiddle to Louise.

Meanwhile, Zak (Steve Halliwell) gets a shock when he discovers Hamish the pony has gone missing and is surprised when Belle (Emily Mather) reveals that she exchanged the pony for Victoria’s (Hannah Midgley) doll. How will Jack (Clive Hornby) respond when he hears about his daughter’s impressive trade?

Elsewhere in the Woolpack, Emily (Kate McGregor) is oblivious to the air of embarrassment between Paddy (Dominic Brunt) and Viv (Deena Payne) and invites a drunken Viv to join them. Will she regret it when a chance encounter in the corridor leaves both Viv and Paddy red-faced?

After Victoria swapped her doll for Hamish the pony everyone at the Dingles has been blissfully unaware of Hamish’s disappearance. That is until Zak spots the stable door open and immediately hunts down Shadrach who Zak thinks is to blame. He’s just about to punch the old fella when Belle tells them about the swap.

Victoria left the pony tied up by the village hall and after walking him that morning she returns there to tie him up again. But the knot is not strong enough and Hamish wonders off. Meanwhile, Zak has told Jack what has happened. They go and ask Victoria but she’s given them the silent treatment.

Elsewhere and Matthew invites Louise and Terry to Sunday lunch. When they arrive Louise is somewhat surprised to find that Matthew has invited Sian along. But the businessman couldn’t give two hoots about the brunette as his eyes are set firmly on Louise.

The barmaid is impressed with his cooking and tells him that his reputation of being a cool customer couldn’t be further from the truth. ‘In my line of work you need to come across tough. But underneath I’m just a big softy,’ Matthew tells them, but he looks directly at Louise as he talks.

Sian has clearly picked up that his attention is most definitely focused on the buxom blond and can’t help but try and belittle her when she starts talking about her job as an air stewardess. She admits that she was once married to a pilot and Matthew asks what happened. ‘It turns out he loved himself more than me,’ she tells him. ‘Don’t they all,’ Sian pipes up, looking at Matthew.

After dinner Sian is keen to divert Matthew’s attention from Louise by asking the couple how they got together. She tells Terry that it must be hard going out with a barmaid with all those men leaning over the bar. But Louise says she doesn’t take any notice of them, ‘It takes a special kind of guy to get my attention now,’ she announces as she looks adoringly at Terry.

As Terry and Louise leave, Matthew can’t help but give her a long lingering kiss near the mouth, which she picks up on of course. Returning to Sian he gives her attention for the first time and asks her if she would like to go upstairs. ‘After today’s little performance the only thing you can do for me is call me a taxi,’ the sharp-tongued saleswoman tells him.

Terry and Louise are walking to the pub as Sian and Matthew emerge from the house. She’s clearly not happy, much to Louise's surprise, but Terry points out that Sian should be angry as Matthew spent most of the time looking at her. Louise denies it, but it doesn’t matter for Terry doesn’t seem too bothered that another man was looking at his woman. Stupid fool!

Meanwhile, during Sunday service, Laurel announces to the parishioners that there will be a baking competition at Friday’s Spring fete. It’s not long before the imminent contest brings out the competitiveness among two ladies of the congregation, namely Edna and Pearl!

While in the pub Paddy and Viv steal a moment outside the toilets where they both tell each other that their kiss the other night should not happen again. They both go all awkward on each other before going their respective ways. But how will they be able to keep their hands off each other?
