Paddy and Viv’s passion reaches a climax
7:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Paddy (Dominic Brunt) is unable to distract himself from his feelings
for Viv (Deena Payne) and resolves to visit her at the shop, where
his request for mint balls sends Viv into overdrive. Unable to control
themselves any longer, Viv kicks Shadrach (Andy Devine) out of the
shop and locks all the doors before the pair finally give into their
passion. With Donna (Verity Rushworth) on her way home early, will
she discover the steamy affair?
Elsewhere, Matthew (Matt Healy) comes to Louise’s rescue when
her taxi doesn’t turn up and he offers her a ride, which she
readily accepts. Louise (Emily Symons) is a little too happy to hear
that Matthew and Siân (Maeve Larkin) are just good friends. Can
she resist temptation?
Later, a homeless Cain (Jeff Hordley) gets some unexpected affection
from his old friend, Hamish, but despite returning the pony to the
Dingles, he receives a frosty reception.

| Paddy is restless as he tries to get his head round past events
with Viv. Libby senses his unease and tells him, ‘I know
what you need, something sweet and sticky from Viv.’ The
vet is horrified that his secretary knows his secret, until she
tells him that she was actually meaning a lisce of cake from the
Later that day Viv goes to see Paddy, claiming she wants some advice for Buffy
the rabbit. Libby tells her that Paddy is on his break but informs her that he
was planning to go over there later to buy some mints. She chirps up and heads
back to the café to prepare for the big event.
Meanwhile, Cain gets woken up by a big wet nose - Hamish! He returns the pony
to Zak but neither he nor Cain can forget the events of the previous week and
the two go their separate ways.
Katie has decided to go for the job at the Kings after all and takes her application
over. Matthew and Tamsin both delight themselves by telling her that the closing
date has past, but Tom is keen to see her and tells her she can join Dawn and
Donna later that afternoon for an interview.
Put out, Matthew goes over to the pub and when he discovers that Louise needs
a lift to Hotten he is only too glad to offer her a lift claiming that he needs
to go there for business. In the car Louise asks him about Sian and is visibly
pleased when he tells her that they’re just friends, ‘A bit like
you and me,’ he tells her, with a wink in his eye. What a rascal!
Elsewhere and Paul has taken Emily shopping for some new clothes and is now
intent on giving the drab girl a makeover. ‘I’ll find the inner
you and bring it out.’ He tells her when she complains that makeovers
are ‘just not me’. Let’s hope he doesn’t make her look
like a transvestite the way Nicola did when she tried to glam Emily up!
Back at the café and Viv is disgusted when Shadrach drops by to drool
over her. Just to get him out she tells him she’s closing up, just as
Paddy walks into the shop. As has become usual, Paddy asks for a bag of mint
balls and can’t help looking at Viv’s legs again when she stands
on the step ladder. Viv confronts him about it and asks, ‘Did you like
what you saw?’ Paddy replies, ‘Yes, very much, and that’s
At that Viv rushes into the café (taking short steps in her heels as
her mini skirt won’t allow her to take any mort than a few inches at
a time) to chuck Shadrach out and lock up the doors. She then rushes back round
to the shop and locks those doors too and puts the ‘Closed’ sign
up. She then lunges at Paddy and the two knock all the goods off the shelves
as they snog before Viv chucks Paddy to the floor and finally give in to their
Thankfully they’ve finished as Donna returns, but they still have to
make up some ludicrous story to explain the mess and the fact that all the
doors were locked. Paddy tells her the rabbit got loose and went mad in the
shop. Donna says, ‘It needs a mate. How would you feel if you were locked
up in a cage with no-one to talk too.’ Likening the image to his and
Viv’s own situation, Paddy replies, ‘Desperate.’
Meanwhile, Paul has finished with Emily and the shop assistant looks a million
dollars. But the effort is lost on Paddy for the vet is still in shock about
what he’s just done. Emily catches up with him and waits for him to say
how nice she looks. But, unsurprisingly, he simply tells her that 'it’s
not really you'. Emily is furious and marches off, which finally gets Paddy’s
attention and he shouts at her, ‘You look different, fantastic and I’m
a very lucky man.’ But have you thrown it all away now, Paddy?
