Episode: 3963 - Monday 31st January 2005
Chloe proves that she will stop at nothing to hold on to her man

Review :-

After a fall in the office, Chloe is rushed to hospital – and questions her abortion plans.

Laurel revels in her perfect life back in the village.

Turner begins to blame himself for Shelly’s death.


Tom (Ken Farrington) and Carl (Tom Lister) rush to Chloe’s (Amy Nuttall) aid when she falls down the stairs. Tom is left stunned when she lets slip that she is pregnant.

Despite her protesting, Carl takes Chloe to the hospital but as she is about to have her scan she asks Carl to go and talk to Tom.

Left alone, the doctor tells Chloe that she was never pregnant. However, she later lies to Carl that the baby is fine and that she can’t go through with the abortion. How far will the manipulative minx go to hold on to her man?

Elsewhere, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) is delighted when Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) offers her a home at the Woolpack and is thrilled when Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) throws her a surprise welcome home party. Laurel’s day improves even further when Nicola offers her a job and she is left overwhelmed by her perfect life in the village.

Fallen lady? Mon, 7.00pm, 31st Jan

Laurel sets out for the day to look for a place to live until her and Ashley get married. But Ashley doesn’t let her leave until she’s had a big hug and a kiss from her fiancé! Aww!

Tom thanks Chloe for going to lunch the previous day and she suggests that they make it a regular thing. Much to her surprise, though, Tom warns her off Carl and tells her: ‘You’re not the first lass Carl has brought home and you won’t be the last, sorry love.’ Well that’s put a spanner in the works hasn’t it, Chloe?
Ethan goes in search of Turner and finds him chatting to Zak in the café. He hands Turner the letter but he’s not interested and continues to plan Shelly’s memorial service.
Laurel goes to Diane to see if she can stay there. The landlady agrees and tells her, ‘Ashley’s been like a kicked dog since you’ve been away.’ Laurel tells her that she’s here to stay now and just wants to get on with the rest of her life.
Having got somewhere to stay, Laurel goes in search of Nicola to ask her for her job back. She finds her in the café talking to Ashley, which surprises her somewhat as they never talk! Nicola tells her that the company got on fine without her and if she wants her job back she’ll have to go for an interview. What a cow!
After Tom’s comments earlier in the day, Chloe is distraught she’s not made more of an impact on him. When he calls her just a secretary and asks her to get some coffee, she puts Plan B into action and decides to fall down the stairs! She of course lets slip that she’s pregnant, much to the surprise of family-man Tom who demands she goes to hospital.
At the hospital Chloe asks Carl how they’re going to tell Tom about the abortion. She sends him out to talk to him, but only because she knows she’s having a scan and she’s worried what it’ll show, or, in her case, what it won’t show.
Tom is angry that the couple are planning an abortion and tells Carl that just because he wants a termination doesn’t mean Chloe does too. Meanwhile, Chloe is told by the doctor that she wasn’t pregnant and never has been!
Elsewhere, Laurel decides to go for her interview with Nicola, but instead gets a shock when she discovers that she and Ashley have organised a surprise party for her! And, not only does she get her job back, she gets promoted to second in command to Nicola, who has decided to expand her business. What a day for Laurel!
Meanwhile, back at the hospital, Carl tells Tom that his and Chloe’s decision to terminate the baby is for the best, particularly as he doesn’t even know how he feels about her. But then Chloe emerges in tears and, thinking the worst, Carl consoles her. She then tells him that the ‘baby’ is actually fine.
Back home, Chloe tells Carl that she doesn’t want to get rid of the baby. After seeing it on the scan she says she just can’t do it. But Carl is outraged that she has gone back on their decision. Trouble is, Chloe, you ain't pregnant!
