remain loyal to Terry?

a suitable vicar’s wife?

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

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.
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
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
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…
