Episode: 3966 - Thursday 3rd February 2005
Charity turns on the charm for Jimmy

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM


Turner (Richard Thorp) is torn between feelings of relief and anger as he desperately tries to come to terms with what has happened.

After some initial reluctance he is adamant that the police must be informed.

Over in the Woolpack, Charity (Emma Atkins) flirtatiously sidles up to Jimmy (Nick Miles) and seductively tells him that he can do better than Sadie (Patsy Kensit) or Chloe (Amy Nuttall). Jimmy is clearly flattered but can he resist Charity’s womanly charm?

Elsewhere, the Dingles are less than impressed when they eventually discover that Chas’ new flame is a copper. However, Zak (Steve Halliwell) soon perks up when Chas suggests it could work to their advantage, hinting that Denzel (Danny Lawrence) might turn a blind eye to the Dingles’ scams.

Turner is still in shock after Shelly’s surprise appearance, but at first he’s just glad to see her. Shelly tells him she had to go him after seeing him on the television and seeing how much pain he was in.
But what was initially joy turns to anger on Turner’s part as he can’t understand why she didn’t come forward sooner. He tells her about his sleepless nights, wondering where she was…
Shelly insists she tried calling, but that she just couldn’t speak. But Turner is really angry now that she let him believe she was dead, ‘how could you torture me in such a way?’ he asks her. She tells him that she was frightened Steph would come after her.
Turner makes the point that Steph is actually innocent now, but Shelly is in disbelief that he could say that after what she did. She then recounts the night when she bundled her into a car and dumped her on the moors and told her to run and not stop because if she did, she would be there to finish her off. She then breaks down in tears.
Turner tells Shelly that he knows what it feels like because Steph was drugging him – but he reminds Shelly that Steph did spare them both and surely she should be forgiven. Shelly completely disagrees and tells Turner that she hopes ‘Steph rots in hell for what she’s done’.
Shelly tells Turner how frightened she is and that she only slept when she knew Steph was in prison and the thought of her being released feels her with dread. But Turner says they need to go to the police because she is innocent after all.
Meanwhile, away from the heavy stuff, the Dingles are waiting for Chas’s date, whom they believe is Rodney! But when the door knocks and Denzel’s standing there, the Dingles have a fit and keep him shut out until Chas explains herself!
How she does it, we don’t know, but Chas manages to convince Zak that it’s a good idea she’s seeing Denzel as it’d be good to have someone looking out for the Dingles’ interests from the inside! It works, Zak invites Denzel back in…
‘I’m a fair man and if you play right by me, I’ll play right by you,’ Zak tells a very cold and nervous Denzel! ‘But if you see me on the street you’re not to speak to me while I’m on duty, you understand?’ Denzel nods and they all sit down to dinner. But it’s hardly a match made in heaven now is it?!
Elsewhere, Charity cosies up to Jimmy in the pub where he admits that he once liked Chloe! But Charity tells him he can do better than Chloe and Sadie as she flaunts her seductive eyes and her flirtatious smile. It works! Seemingly under her spell he offers to buy her a drink!
But, back at Betty’s, Shelly still can’t understand how Turner could be thinking of letting Steph run free. Turner again argues that she shouldn’t be behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit. He says to her, ‘Isn’t there a part of you that wants to clear up this mess once and for all?’
He tells her he’s got to go to the police and he’ll do it with or without her. Shelly is reluctant but knows deep down that it is the only plausible way forward. She makes Alan promise to never leave her, which he does. Aww!
