Episode: 3949 - Friday 14th January 2005
Turner makes an appeal on This Morning

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Review :-

Turner makes an appearance on national television, hoping if Shelly’s out there that she’ll get in touch.

Chas’ surprised when hunky Denzel starts giving her the eye.

Viv guesses Bob’s having a mid-life crisis.


Turner (Richard Thorp) appears on This Morning and makes an emotional plea to Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) to get in touch if she is watching.

Back at the village, the B&B telephone doesn’t stop ringing with journalists wanting to speak to Turner. When he returns he insists he isn’t up to speaking to anyone and leaves Ethan (Liam O’Brien) to comment on his behalf.

Over in the Woolpack, Chas (Lucy Pargeter) is excited when the policeman from the previous day pays another visit. Now on first name terms, Chas and Denzel (Danny Lawrence) openly flirt with one another and, as he leaves, Chas happily smiles to herself. Could romance be on the cards?

Meanwhile, Alice (Ursula Holden Gill) and Sam (James Hooton) grow closer as they share intimate details about their lives. Sam confides in her about running Edna (Shirley Stelfox) over, but how will Alice react to discovering that he knocked down an elderly lady?

ITV Update

This Morning meets Emmerdale! Fri, 7.00pm, 14th Jan

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

Turner is having doubts about appearing on ‘This Morning’. Horrified Betty says, ‘You can’t pull out now, what’ll Phil and Fern say?’ You tell him Betty! He reluctantly gets into the taxi with Ethan as they head off to the studios.
It seems Pearl’s plan has paid off as Len receives a call from the estate agent telling him that yesterday’s couple didn’t like the house. Len blames it on the car parked in the drive to which Pearl enacts stage two of her plan by suggesting a solution… Len could help Jarvis fix the car, then it would be gone. Ooo, sly Pearl, very sly!
Meanwhile, Bob is preparing for his open mic night and is trying his jokes out on first Terry, then Paul. Unfortunately they aren’t rolling around the floor laughing (did we expect any different?) and instead we’ll have to cringe in our seats when it comes to the much-awaited evening.
Gossip queen Viv is trying to get the latest in the Turner-Steph-Shelly situation and asks Ashley for an update. He refuses, but then Betty walks into the shop and is about to divulge everything in true Betty style, until Ashley interrupts. Instead, she tells Viv to ‘make sure you’ve got access to a telly This Morning'. Very good Betty, after a bit of help with the riddle, Viv eventually understands.
Len finally gives in to the urge of fixing the car and asks Jarvis for a screwdriver. One little twist later and the engine is purring away – he’s so clever! But it hasn’t done enough to convince Len that he wants to go back to work and he asks Jarvis to move the car. Looks like Pearl's plan has failed.
At the Woolpack, Chas is fed up that she’ll be working all Friday afternoon and evening and complains to Paul about her lack of social life. Instead they watch Turner on ‘This Morning’, along with the rest of the village.
Phil and Fern are fab in their debut Emmerdale appearance as they quiz Turner about his situation. Turner talks about his feelings of emptiness and makes a plea at the end of the show: ‘Shelly, if you are out there, please contact me, I just can’t live without knowing… please, please!’ But is she watching…?
After a few days of being on a high, Bob’s world comes tumbling down again when Viv hands him a letter from her solicitor to start divorce proceedings. He’s not down for long though and to cheer himself up he buys a motorbike. Mid-life crisis perchance, Bob?
Turner returns after his television appearance and the interview requests are already pouring in. At first Turner can’t see the point, but Ethan offers to do them instead.
In the Woolpack, Alice and Sam freak Chas out by saying exactly the same thing as each other when they order a drink. Paul overhears and sees it as a match made in heaven. He adds that Viv and Bob are also meant to be together… do we detect a bit of match-making coming up?
It’s vomit time again as Chas and Denzel flirt in the pub – funnily enough, there isn’t any moaning from Chas about her lack of social life now… just get on with it you two!
We still don’t know if Shelly saw Turner on ‘This Morning’, but one person who did was the police detective… he looks a bit peeved to say the least, could Turner have jeopardised the case? What a cliffhanger!
