Episode: 3961 - Friday 28th January 2005
Jimmy learns the truth about his wife

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Review :-

Turner starts to grieve for Shelly while Steph’s glad to have cleared her conscience.

Charity keeps Jimmy firmly on her side.

A surprise late entry wins the open mic night.


DI Keysell (John Bramwell) interviews Steph (Lorraine Chase) about Shelly’s (Carolyn Pickles) death but becomes frustrated when she insists that she can’t remember exactly how she killed her.

Later that day, Steph calls her father to apologise for the hurt that she has caused. Turner (Richard Thorp) hangs up in fury before breaking down in tears as the magnitude of the situation finally hits home.

Jimmy (Nick Miles) meets the private investigator and is shocked to learn that Sadie (Patsy Kensit) held back pictures of Charity (Emma Atkins) fighting Cain (Jeff Hordley) off after the kiss. Jimmy can’t believe his wife’s behaviour and after seeing his anguish, Charity (Emma Atkins) seductively assures him that Sadie will get her comeuppance. What does Charity have up her sleeve?

Over at the Woolpack the open mic competition gets underway and Viv (Deena Payne) can’t resist mocking every joke that Bob (Tony Audenshaw) makes. Viv’s comments only add to the comedy value and the pair are voted joint winners, much to Viv’s horror!

ITV Update

Let her downfall begin Fri, 7.00pm, 28th Jan

After changing her plea, Steph’s solicitor arrives to question her again. She’s hazy with the details, as usual, but tells him that she knows she killed Shelly even if she can’t remember the exact circumstances. She asks to speak to the police.
Turner is finding it difficult to believe that Steph has killed Shelly and wonders who made the calls. Betty tells him there are sick-minded people out there who could have done it. Turner tells her that if he had his way, ‘Steph would hang for this’.
Sadie’s private detective, Colin Matthews, turns up at Home Farm half an hour early while Sadie’s still there! It’s a close call, but Jimmy manages to hide him while he packs Sadie off to the airport.
Jimmy questions Mr Matthews about his job for Sadie. At first he spins some bull about confidentiality before Jimmy wades some cash in front him. He tells Jimmy that he took the photos of Charity and Cain kissing, and also some of Charity fighting Cain off. Will Jimmy finally believe Charity now?
DI Keysell arrives at the prison and questions Steph. He asks her again where the body is, but she can’t tell him. He then asks her how she killed Shelly, and yep, you guessed it, she doesn’t know. He leaves, still none the wiser, to conduct a search of the area again.
Jimmy finds Charity at the pub and tells her she was right, much to her delight. He tells her that Sadie has lied to him, to Tom and has played them all for fools. Charity tells him that they can now get her back. ‘Too right,’ he replies, before marching off to go and tell his dad…
…But Charity runs after him and tells him not to tell Tom, not yet anyway, as they haven’t got the photos to prove it. She says it would be best if they wait until Sadie is back from France and hit her with it when she returns.'Her time is coming, trust me,' Charity tells him. Ooh, this is getting exciting now!
Edna sends her petition off to the council using registered delivery. Val attempts to pinch the envelope from the post office counter by distracting Emily but gets caught in the act. Eric is touched when Val tells him about it. Paul continues to be appalled by his mother’s interest in Emmerdale’s dodgiest bachelor.
Meanwhile, at the Woolpack, the open-mic comedy night has kicked off with Paddy doing the intros. He's actually quite funny, shame he didn't enter!
Bob's up, but it isn’t long before Viv is giving her two pennies’ worth and the two end up having a slanging match. The audience think it’s part of a double-act and love it! Bob is distraught when he wins, ‘If I can’t raise a laugh on my own what is the point of my very existence?’ Oh dear…
Back with Turner and he jumps from his seat when the phone rings thinking it could be Shelly. But it’s daughter Steph instead. She tells him she wants to explain to him that she never meant to kill Shelly. Turner tells him to leave her alone before slamming the phone down and bursting into tears. He cuts a lonely figure, the poor fella.
