Episode: 4,017 - Wednesday 6th April 2005
Marlon’s stunned to discover Paddy and Viv in a clinch

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM


Donna’s (Verity Rushworth) carelessness with Buffy the rabbit gives a rampant Viv (Deena Payne) the opportunity to visit Paddy (Dominic Brunt) at the vets, where an innocent thank-you kiss soon turns to a passionate clinch. The temperature plummets when an astonished Marlon (Mark Charnock) catches them together but will this be enough to put an end to their dangerous liaison?

Meanwhile Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) rebuffs Ashley’s (John Middleton) invitation to be the judge of the baking competition, suggesting the Bishop takes her place seeing as he seems to be doing most of the judging in Emmerdale.

Elsewhere, Jimmy’s (Nick Miles) constant taunting drives Matthew (Matt Healy) to extreme measures to get close to Louise (Emily Symons). Will the landlady succumb to his charms?

Overwhelmed with guilt, Paddy tells Emily that he will cook a meal for her, Marlon and Donna that evening. ‘You can put your feet up and relax for once,’ he tells her, finally becoming the doting husband. Emily is shocked at his behaviour, ‘What have I done to deserve this?’ she asks him, and Paddy simply replies, ‘Everything.’ Yep, the guy’s feeling guilty.

Meanwhile, Sadie suffers the ignominy of having her card rejected in the shop, much to Viv’s pleasure. Fuming she confronts Jimmy to ask him why he hasn’t paid her credit card bill. He points out that they are no longer together and it’s her responsibility now. To make matters worse her car won’t start! Cue Robert by any chance?

Sadie and Jimmy aren’t the only ones having words. The baking competition is getting serious and when Diane tells Edna and Pearl that Marlon is entering the ladies are furious and march over to Ashley’s to demand he pull out. If he doesn’t, they will make all the entrants boycott the event!

Having found no-one willing to judge the contest, Ethan asks Laurel if she will do it. But Laurel has an even better idea and suggests that he ask the Bishop for he seems to be judging everything and everyone in the village at the moment anyway! Nice work, Laurel!

Over in the pub and Jimmy is still convinced he will win the £1000 bet he has with Matthew, he tells his brother, ‘I still think you’ve got a better chance with Paul than with Louise.’ He asks him to pay up now to save the embarrassment, but Matthew tells him he’s not going to listen to his thoughts on women when he can’t even hold his own marriage together. Ouch!

In his bid to spend some time with Louise, Matthew drops his pint glass on the floor. It shatters and as he bends down to pick it up he grabs a bit of glass and cuts himself. And sure enough, Louise takes him round the back to plaster it up. He’s a smoothy that one.

Tom on the other hand seems to be softening towards his eldest son and tells Carl to invite Jimmy to Sunday lunch and to pass on the name of a good divorce lawyer. Is the eldest son about to be welcomed back into the fold?

Elsewhere and Emily tells Paul that Paddy is going to cook her dinner, he seems a little impressed, but their conversation is stopped short when Donna screams out upstairs – she’s dropped the rabbit! Gives Viv the perfect opportunity to head to the vets…

Paddy looks pleased to see her and sends Libby on her lunch break. Turns out the rabbit’s ok (of course it is!), Viv kisses him on the cheek, but Paddy steps back and tells her again that they’ve got to restrain themselves. She agrees, but seconds later they’re in a clinch snogging away! Little do they know that Marlon has walked into the vets. He opens the door to see the two kissing, but only Paddy sees him and he immediately breaks it off with Viv.

Marlon catches up with his friend later at home and asks him what he was thinking, ‘I saw my best mate about to ruin his life, and Emily’s.’ Before he can answer Emily walks in and tells her husband how proud she is that he helped Viv with the rabbit. Paddy is keen to get Marlon out and tells Emily that he’s no longer coming to dinner. She doesn’t mind though and tells her husband, ‘It’ll be nice though, just the two of us,’ as she hugs him while Paddy knocks back a stiff drink!
