Review :-

Charity swears revenge as her dreams of wedded bliss collapse around her.
Sadie’s plan’s worked – she ‘s queen bee again loving it.
Tom holes himself up at home, determined not to show weakness.


Charity (Emma Atkins) racks her brains to work out where the incriminating photos came from and is hurt to think that Debbie (Charley Webb) may have been involved in the scam.

Debbie explains that Cain (Jeff Hordley) told her that he wanted to meet Charity to ask for some money, which causes Charity to question where he eventually got his funds from.

Aware that it would not be beyond Sadie (Patsy Kensit) to bribe Cain to set her up, Charity pays her a visit, warning her to watch her back as she will get her revenge. How far will Charity go to make Sadie pay for the humiliation that she has caused her?

Charity wanrs Sadie she's not finished yet.

Over at the B & B, Bob (Tony Audenshaw) struggles with his housekeeping duties and offers to pay Betty (Paula Tilbrook) to help him out. Betty is happy to oblige but expects a bonus if it is to remain a secret from Terry (Billy Hartman). Believing Bob to be solely responsible for the good work, Terry is impressed and offers him more control over the running of the B & B.

ITV Update

Morning has broken Weds, 7.00pm, 5th Jan

Still dressed in her wedding dress Charity wakes up on the Dingle sofa. Meanwhile, at Home Farm, Sadie celebrates her enemy’s downfall and tells Jimmy that she feels like a buck’s fizz. Jimmy is appalled and Sadie tells him that she’s celebrating because Charity has been stopped just as she was on the verge of taking over their family. Jimmy scornfully points out that Tom was marrying Charity because he loved her. Jimmy goes to see how Tom is doing but his father refuses to let him in.
Ashley arrives and demands that Tom lets him in. Ashley is furious and tells Tom that with his outburst in church he has made a mockery of a sacred sacrament. He points out to Tom that he has seen a photo of Cain kissing Charity and has no real evidence that they are having an affair. Tom wallows in self-pity and tells Ashley that he’s come to his senses and has finally realised that he’s been an old fool to get involved with a younger woman. Ashley advises Tom to talk to Charity and tells him that he’s convinced Charity is in love with him.
Zak is sceptical when Chas tells him Charity’s theory about being set up. He reminds her that they all know that Charity and Cain can’t keep their hands off each other. Later, Charity accuses Debbie of unwittingly helping Cain and Sadie set her up because she wants her parents to get back together. Debbie replies that she helped Cain set-up the meeting with her at the hotel because he desperately needed money. Charity suddenly realises that Cain changed his mind about asking her for money because Sadie was paying him.
Still in her wedding dress Charity turns up on the doorstep at Holdgate Farm as snow falls outside. Tom answers the door and Charity tells him she’s only come to collect her things. When Charity returns with her bags packed Tom asks to talk to her. Charity replies that she’s ready to talk as soon as he’s apologised for the foul way he behaved yesterday. Charity hands over her keys and Tom tells her to keep the car and sell it on. As she drives through the village Charity spots Sadie and pulls up and warns her that one day soon she’s going to bring her down.
Terry and Bob continue to bicker over the running of the B&B. After going over the top in his efforts to please the guests Bob is exhausted and offers Betty a sizeable bonus to help him clean the house. Betty discovers that guest from hell Auntie Phyllis left has left some scathing comments in the guest book. Bob removes the offending page from the book and is later forced to keep Betty supplied with complementary sherry so that Terry remains none the wiser and is impressed with Bob’s efforts at the B&B.
