Episode: 4,019 - Friday 8th April 2005
Louise is unnerved to hear Matthew confess his feelings

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Matthew (Matt Healy) makes Terry (Billy Hartman) pay for Louise’s (Emily Symons) rejection when he refuses to see him about B&B business without an appointment. An angry Louise heads over to the office to clear the air, but she gets more than she’s bargained for when Matthew makes it clear that this is a more than a crush. Will Louise remain loyal to Terry?

Elsewhere, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) heeds Nicola’s (Nicola Wheeler) advice and invites the bishop to Sunday lunch with her and Ashley (John Middleton) to make amends. Can she convince him she’s a suitable vicar’s wife?

Meanwhile, Jimmy (Nick Miles) has a breakthrough with Tom (Ken Farrington) when he gets an invite to join the family for dinner, but will his stubborn streak prevent him from taking up the offer?

It’s the spring Church fete in Emmerdale and the baking competition certainly springs a surprise.

Pearl (MEG JOHNSON) and Edna (SHIRLEY STELFOX) have been battling it out for the top honours all week and even fell out over a packet of raisins!

But neither guessed that Bob Hope (TONY AUDENSHAW) would be the one to satiate the Bishop’s taste buds!

Laying down the rules Fri, 7.00pm, 8th Apr

Louise looks out the window to see Matthew walking to the post office and she’s reminded of the kiss he gave her the previous night. While there Matthew bumps into Jimmy and asks him if he’s signed his severance deal yet. Jimmy says the package is still not good enough and questions him about the company restructure.

Remembering that he has a wife, Paddy tells Marlon that he wants to take Emily to the cinema that evening to watch Brief Encounter as it’s her favourite film. But in order to do that he needs to go to the shop to speak to her about it and he doesn’t want to because Viv’s there! Marlon tells him not to be so daft and to just get on with it…

…but Paul beats him to it and invites Emily around for dinner that night. Paddy turns up minutes later rushing in and talking so quickly so that Viv doesn’t seem him that Emily can’t understand what he’s saying. She tells him that she’s busy though and doesn’t want to change her plans.

Back to the pub and Louise is in a foul mood so Diane takes her out the back to find out what’s wrong. She tells her boss all about the previous evening with Matthew, but says she stopped the kiss straight away. Diane tells her to be careful, but Louise insists that she’s kicked him into touch and doesn’t expect any more bother from him.

Her day gets worse though when Terry tells her that the survey has revealed some dry rot on the roof of the B&B. He goes to see Matthew who tells him that the mortgage offer will fall through unless it’s fixed first. Could it be an omen on the couple's relationship?

Jimmy is shocked when Carl tells him that Tom has invited him to Sunday lunch. But then the ungrateful sod says, 'He could have asked me himself.' You should think yourself lucky that you even got an invite, mister!

Elsewhere and it’s the Spring fete and the biggest event of the day, the Baking Competition, is in full flow as the Bishop samples all the entrants. Pearl and Edna are still convinced that the winner will be one of them, but then the Bishop reveals that he liked the fruit cake the best, which belongs to none other than... Bob!

It seems Louise’s conscience is bothering her and she goes to see Matthew to clear the air. She apologises if she gave out the wrong signals, but Matthew admits that she wasn’t. She tells him that she’s flattered that he fancies her, but before she can go on he stops her and tells her that what he feels for her is much more than just a crush. ‘I’ve been feeling stuff for you that I haven’t felt about anybody for years.’

‘You can’t tell me things like that,’ she tells him, ‘I’m with Terry.’ Matthew tells her that he’s angry with himself as he promised never to get involved with someone who was attached gain. He admits that he fell in love with a married woman but that she rejected him. He tells her he was messed up emotionally and vowed never to put himself through it all again.

He tells her that he will keep away from her as she picks up her coat to leave. Back at the pub and she tells Diane that she went to see him to lay down the rules. She tells the landlady that it went ok, but when she's alone it seems Matthew’s little speech has got to her…
