Episode: 3957 - Monday 24th January 2005
Ethan suggests that Shelly may be trying to get in touch with Turner

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Review :-

A crank caller raises Turner’s hopes – could Shelly still be alive?

Charity worries she’s missed her window to get in with Jimmy.

Chloe plays happy families to keep her man.


After a series of anonymous calls at the B&B, Ethan (Liam O’Brien) suggests to Turner (Richard Thorp) that Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) may be on the other end of the phone. When it rings again Turner listens carefully and thinks he can hear crying. He asks if it is Shelly but the call is cut off leaving Turner unsure what to believe.

Meanwhile, Steph (Lorraine Chase) lies on her bed deep in thought as she remembers the night that Shelly went missing. As her mind flashes back she opens her eyes in horror, but what are the memories that are troubling her?

Over at Dale View, Chloe (Amy Nuttall) continues to play happily families with Carl (Tom Lister) and she shocks him when she comes home with a pet dog. Carl is clearly not impressed but Chloe is unperturbed by his reaction.

Chas (Lucy Pargeter) warns Charity (Emma Atkins) that if she wants to continue to manipulate Jimmy (Nick Miles) she’ll have to be quick because he’s off to France with Sadie (Patsy Kensit). Will this spur Charity to step up her scheming?

‘Morning, Tiger,’ Charity says to Jimmy after their previous evening's 'snog'. ‘You know full well it wasn’t me…’ Jimmy tells her, but stops short because he realises that is just what Charity wanted him to say so he’d understand how easy it is to set someone, i.e. her, up.
Chloe continues to try and get Carl’s attention, but it’s a biker delivery girl that does that when she drops by with a parcel in her leathers! Sensing that she is losing her grip on her boyfriend, Chloe decides to take the afternoon off, she clearly has something up her sleeve…
Charity goes to see Debbie, but she refuses to make small talk with her and tells her to ‘push of’, how nice. Chas tells Charity that maybe if she focused on Debbie instead of getting back at Sadie then she might get her daughter back on side.
Meanwhile, Sadie is ordering two first class tickets to Nice. But Jimmy overhears and cuts off the call. He’s angry that she won’t listen to him, she suggests they make a holiday out of it, but he’s having none of it. Flaring at the nostrils, he walks off.
Later in the pub, Sadie tells Tom that she's tried to get Jimmy to go on holiday with her, Jimmy fails to defend himself and finally agrees to go. But what about Charity's plan? Fear not, Chas has the overheard the conversation and will surely tell her.
Meanwhile, Ethan visits a disturbed Steph in prison. She asks him if anything came of Turner’s television appearance, but Ethan says no. Steph admits that she thought Shelly would come forward, but she realises that if Shelly has died then her father will continue to believe that she was the killer.
In her bid to get more commitment from Carl, Chloe returns home from her shopping trip. She tells him she has a present for both of them. Expecting some slinky underwear, you can imagine Carl’s horror when Chloe produces Fenella – a dog!
After hearing Sadie and Jimmy’s plans for France, Chas tells Charity that if she wants to carry on manipulating Jimmy then she’d better get a move on. Charity sees it as a setback, but doesn’t believe it will interfere with her plans. Thank goodness for that!
After receiving a number of anonymous calls at the B&B, Ethan suggests that it could be Shelly. But Turner tells him not to be stupid and asks him to leave. Later, though, Turner answers the phone and hears crying, he asks if it’s Shelly, but the call is cut off leaving Turner unsure what to believe.
Back at the prison. Steph lies in bed and recalls the night that she dumped Shelly on the moors. She remembers pulling her out of the car and dragging her into the woods, but then she opens her eyes in horror – does Steph finally remember what she did to her?
Elsewhere, Terry agrees to enter the open-mic night and, believing a duo would be more successful, manages to convince Louise to join him! What is she thinking?
