Review :-

Sadie’s photo sting causes explosions between her and Jimmy.
There’s a new smooth operator in the village - Max King.
As Charity prepares for her big day, Sadie prepares to ruin her.


Max, the youngest of the King brothers, arrives in the village

Jimmy (Nick Miles) is alarmed when Sadie (Patsy Kensit) shows him the pictures of Charity (Emma Atkins) and Cain (Jeff Hordley) kissing and he insists that there must be an innocent explanation. Jimmy sets off to get the truth from Cain but when Zak (Steve Halliwell) tells him that he has gone away, Jimmy is left pleading with his wife not to spoil his father’s big day.

Sadie shows Jimmy the photos

Max King

Meanwhile, Tom (Ken Farrington) is thrilled when his youngest son Max (Charlie Kemp) arrives in the village. Despite having his girlfriend, Amy (Bethany Webb) on his arm, Max is clearly a free spirit and his cheeky smile is a sure sign that he will cause a stir amongst the local ladies.

Over at the B & B Carl (Tom Lister) introduces his Aunt Phyllis (Sheila Burrell) to Bob (Tony Audenshaw) and Terry (Billy Hartman) and they welcome her with open arms. However, before long she proves a nuisance as she complains about everything imaginable.


With the wedding preparations in place Charity looks forward to her impending nuptials, but with Sadie set to sabotage the biggest day of her life will the wedding day go without a hitch?


ITV Update

A right to know Mon, 7.00pm, 3rd Jan

Sadie shows Jimmy the photos of Cain kissing Charity. Jimmy is unimpressed. He tells his wife that when he sees his auntie Phyllis he will give her a kiss but that doesn’t mean they are having an affair. Sadie accuses Jimmy of dithering in a time of crisis so he tells her that he will go and speak to Cain and find out whether he’s having an affair with Charity. Sadie tells him not to go but he heads off to the Dingles and Zak tells him that Cain has gone away on business.
Sadie tells Jimmy he’s probably gone away because he can’t stand seeing the love of his life marrying another woman. Tom is delighted when his youngest son Max returns for the wedding from a round the world trip. Tom gathers his family around him and tells everyone how lucky he is. When they are alone together for the last time before the wedding Tom is touched when Charity tells him that she loves him. Jimmy tells Sadie that Tom and Charity are very much in love and he begs her not to show Tom the photos.
Tom and Charity see them arguing and want to know what they are hiding from them. Jimmy says that it’s a surprise and he doesn’t want to spoil it. Later, at Charity’s hen night, Sadie tells Charity she has something to show her. It looks as if Sadie is about to show Charity the photos on the eve of her wedding but instead she takes her out to the wedding pavilion. Charity is delighted with it and hugs Sadie. She tells Sadie how much she’s looking forward to the wedding. Sadie replies that she’s looking forward to it as well.
Carl is relieved to drop his aunt Phyllis of at the B&B. Bob and Terry soon find that she is extremely difficult to please and she sends back every cup of tea that Terry makes for her. Terry loses his temper with her, and with Bob who keeps reminding him that the customer is always right, when they make an exception and prepare her an evening meal and she complains that she doesn’t eat red meat. She calls Carl and he is forced to leave his dad’s stag do to bring her something to eat.
