Episode: 4,015 - Monday 4th April 2005
Paddy and Viv’s passion reaches a climax

ITV1 Network 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 café!

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 the problem.’

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 sexual urges.

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?
