Episode: 3998 - Tuesday 15th March 2005
Libby feels rejected by Andy

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM


Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) faces her demons as she cleans the B&B, but revisiting the cellar brings back dark memories of the suffering that Steph (Lorraine Chase) previously forced her to endure.

Shelly is later horrified when she returns home to find that Turner (Richard Thorp) has invited Steph round for dinner and during the meal she cracks, forcing Turner to choose between them. When he hesitates, Shelly declares that she is leaving the village the following morning, but will Turner go with her?

Elsewhere, Libby (Ty Glaser) is amused when she walks in on an embarrassed Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) ironing in just a towel. She later asks him to join her for a drink, but when Andy explains he has got to get home, Libby assumes that he isn’t interested.

After being told he has to give the money for the paintings to charity, Pollard is in a foul mood and tells Nicola that he doesn’t need her help to clear up the place or do any more work for him. Nicola reminds him that she has a long-term contract with him, but he reminds her that he never signed the contract. Think you’ve been had there Nicola.

With no other work to do, Nicola tells Lisa and Shelly to go and clean the B&B. Shelly is nervous for she hasn’t set foot in the place since Steph dragged her into the cellar all those months ago. Lisa tells her she should confront her fears, though, and help her to clean the place. Shelly agrees.

All is fine until Shelly is hovering away and Bob touches her shoulder to grab her attention. Shelly jumps up in shock, which sets off a panic attack as she remembers what Steph put her through down in the cellar (she opens the door and they all have a look down - dramatic stuff!). Lisa suggests she have a ‘stiff drink’ in the pub, the remedy for everything it seems.

Turner, meanwhile, has gone to find Steph to tell her that he was hasty and that he doesn’t want her to leave. He tells her that he will speak to Shelly and try and win her round. Good luck there Alan!

He tells Shelly that the situation is tearing him apart and he explains that after Tricia’s death and the fact that his son doesn’t contact him anymore, he only has Steph left. He asks Shelly if she can ‘give it a go’ with Steph. He tells her he’s invited her round for dinner that evening and if, after that, she feels like she can’t handle Steph in her life, he'll deal with it.

So, Steph arrives and everything and everybody is completely false. Shelly puts the roast chicken she’s cooked on the table and Steph jokes: ‘I suppose it’s a mistake to offer to carve!’ It didn’t go down too well with Shelly though, who is a bundle of nerves.

Turner tries to start conversation by reminding the pair how long they have been friends. Steph talks for England on that one, but Shelly is having none of it and while being polite at first she’s unable to take any more and walks off into the kitchen.

Turner follows her and she tells him that she ‘won’t sit and make polite conversation with someone who tried to kill me’. She then gives him an ultimatum: ‘Make a choice – her or me.’

They return to the sitting room where Steph has been talking to herself and Shelly declares that she’ll be leaving the village the following day. She can’t help but tell Steph that she’s ‘a twisted, psychopathic bitch who should never have been let out of jail’. Turner is horrified and Steph rushes out.

‘There really was no need for that,’ he tells her. But it’s clear Shelly’s had enough and she tells Turner: ‘It’s up to you whether you come with me or not tomorrow, either way, it’s the end of the line.’
