Jimmy discover that he has been set up

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM


Charity (Emma Atkins) gives Jimmy (Nick Miles) a Valentine’s Day to remember when she presents him with an unexpected and particularly costly present.

Jimmy unwraps the videotape and looks on in horror as he watches it. Jimmy is furious to discover that he has been set up and is beside himself when Charity demands that he pay her £150,000 to destroy the tape. How will the incensed King respond to being blackmailed by a Dingle?

Over at the vicarage, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) and Ashley (John Middleton) enjoy a cosy Valentine’s Day supper. They excitedly discuss wedding plans and are both thrilled as they agree on a date for the big day.

Elsewhere, Debbie (Charley Webb) spends time with Noah (Sam Duffy)) and starts to panic at the thought of having a baby of her own. Will this spur her to confess to her pregnancy?

It’s the big day and Charity is wrapping her present for Jimmy and signing his card. Something tells us that this isn’t any old Valentine’s Day present!
Meanwhile, blast-from-the-past Glynis gives Pollard a surprise call and asks him out to lunch. She tells him that given the verdict of the court case that she will tear up the petition that tried to force him out of the council and welcomes him back on board.
Charity drops Noah off at Lisa’s for the evening, where she bumps into Debbie, who’s off from school as she’s not feeling well (morning sickness by any chance, Debs?) She takes Noah upstairs and it seems to dawn on her that she could have a kid of her own soon.
Dressed up to the nines, Charity heads to the Woolpack where Jimmy, Tom and Matthew are all enjoying a pint. She makes it loud and clear so that they can overhear that she has an important date that evening, to which Tom says, ’That didn’t take her long.’
In contrast, Ashley and Laurel are having a delightful meal with each other. Laurel is trying to sort out a date for the wedding and tells Ashley that she always wanted to get married before she was 30 – which is May 31st. Ashley says that’s a bit soon, but can’t resist given Laurel just what she wants and agrees on the 30th. Now they just need to ask the Bishop…
Meanwhile, at Home Farm, love of a different kind is emerging – one of money. Jimmy gives Charity a stunning diamond necklace and even tells her that he will leave Sadie for her, ‘You’ve come to mean so much to me already.’ He asks her if she wants to be with him...
… but she tells him that before she can give him an answer she wants to give him her present. It’s a tape, and, as he puts it in the player and asks what it is, she says: ‘It’s called blackmail, Jimmy.’ He gases at the television to see him and Charity in bed together!
‘You sly, manipulating bitch!’ He’s full of rage and starts to strangle her. She tells him that someone knows she’s there and that they will call the police if she’s not back soon. Common sense takes over and he lets her go.
She reminds him exactly what’s on the tape… his thoughts on Sadie, Tom, and even the death of Paul Marsden. Jimmy soon realises that she has too much on him and asks her how much she wants, just £150,000 Jimmy!
‘Everything everyone has ever said about you is right,’ he tells her. He goes on to say that he really cared about her and was prepared to leave Sadie and that she could have had all the money she wanted. ‘I wanted the money, but I didn’t want you, Jimmy,’ Charity replies. Ouch!
‘How do I know you’ll destroy the tape afterwards?’ he asks her. ‘You won’t, you’ll just have to trust me, all I want is the cash.’ Jimmy tells her he’d rather die than give her the money. She tells him he has until tomorrow to decide what he wants to do before she picks up the necklace, wishes him a happy Valentine’s day and waltzes out!
