Episode: 3985 - Friday 25th February 2005
Shelly makes it clear that she is not willing to forgive Steph

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM


Debbie (Charley Webb) is upset following the revelations the previous day and she listens attentively as Ethan (Liam O’Brien) tries to help her understand the reason behind her mother’s behaviour.

Later that day, Debbie receives an apology from Charity (Emma Atkins) and she begins to realise that maybe Cain (Jeff Hordley) has let her down. Charity is hopeful when Debbie hints that she would like a fresh start. But is Debbie ready to leave her life in the village behind?

Elsewhere, Jimmy (Nick Miles) is anxious to ensure that Sadie (Patsy Kensit) never sees the videotape and as Charity puts the pressure on him he resorts to stealing money from King & Son’s office.

Shelly & Steph

Meanwhile, Steph (Lorraine Chase) makes a conscious effort to build bridges with Turner (Richard Thorp) and Shelly (Carolyn Pickles). However, Shelly is not ready to forgive and forget and she slams to door in her rival’s face.

ITV Update

Come away with me Fri, 7.00pm, 25th Feb

PLEASE NOTE All Opinions expressed and any errors in this update are those of the ITV visual updater and not of this site's or necessarily ITV's or Emmerdale's.

Debbie is feeling her stomach as she reminds both herself and us that she’s actually pregnant, as if she needs her mum’s problems on top of her aswell! But clearly the tape has had some affect on her for she ignores Cain when she sees him at breakfast, which Chas observes.
But when Charity tells Chas that she showed the tape to Debbie, she now understands why Debbie was acting strange. Charity admits that it didn’t go to plan, though, and tells Chas: ‘I think I’ve blown it with her for good.’
Later in the street Charity catches up with Debbie and tells her once again that she needed to clear her name, but Debbie’s having none of it and instead shouts: ‘My mum’s a tart and she disgusts me.’ Nice!
Ethan spots the scene and chases after Debbie, who tells him all about the situation and asks the curate for some advice.

But it’s a little unexpected for Ethan says that what Charity did was awful, but if you think about what she’s been through the last few weeks then it was clear she was desperate, he tells her. ‘She’s not in the right, but she’s not quite the villain of the piece either.’
It seems to have worked for Debbie jumps to Charity’s defence when she sees Sadie laying into her mum. Charity tells Sadie that she will get her revenge before she walks off into the B&B, but Debbie can’t help but add: ‘I wouldn’t get too settled, Sadie, she means it, she could hurt you.’ Like mother, like daughter, hey?!
Later in the pub, Jimmy hands Charity some more cash, but it still isn’t enough. She tells him that if he doesn’t get her L25K by the next day, then Sadie will be watching the video. You’ve been warned, Jimmy.
Meanwhile, the village tea dance is in full flow, but when it’s time for the refreshments, everyone sits down for they fear Steph, who has prepared all the food, has poisoned it all! It’s only when Shadrach waltzes in and takes as much as he can that they all realise that the food must be fine and delve in!
At the dance, the Bishop asks Ashley how both he and Laurel are doing. He tells the vicar that he’s genuinely glad that he withdrew his resignation and tells him that his disapproval was not personal. Ashley accepts what the Bishop has to say, but it is clear that the vicar is finding is difficult to accept still.
Elsewhere, Matthew drops a corker by telling Jimmy and Sadie that Charity will be missed in the village, ‘she added a bit of spice to life and she’s been more than a match for any of us’. If looks could kill, Sadie would dispense of her brother-in-law in a matter of seconds!
Meanwhile, Charity and Debbie have a civilised talk for the first time in months as the teenager admits that Cain is always getting away with things and that the Dingles always stick up for him. Once again, Charity asks her to ‘come away with me’, and it seems that Debbie is seriously going to consider the offer.
