Matthew plays it cool with Louise
7:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Louise (Emily Symons) and Terry (Billy Hartman) decide to go through
with the mortgage on the B&B but Louise is surprised when Matthew
(Matt Healy) sends Carl (Tom Lister) in his place with the documentation.
Later that day Louise goes to visit Matthew and hands over the signed
forms. She apologises for the previous day but Matthew insists that
she got the wrong idea, not him. She offers to buy him a drink, but
Matthew refuses and shuts the door on a disappointed Louise.
Meanwhile, Colleen (Melanie Ash) joins Chloe (Amy Nuttall) and Carl
for dinner and Chloe lays on the charm offensive. The subject of the
poison pen letters comes up and Chloe insists that she never believed
that Colleen sent them. Carl is left thoughtful, hoping to get to the
bottom of the letters.
Elsewhere, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) admits to Ashley (John Middleton)
that she’s finding the distance between them difficult and he
confesses that he is finding it equally as hard.

| Diane and Jack are getting ready to go to the hospital for her
chemo appointment. But Andy is struggling at the farm and Diane
tells Jack to stay and orders Bob to take her instead. Was that
a wise decision Diane?
Meanwhile, Terry and Louise tell Matthew that they’re going to go ahead
with the mortgage. From the easy-going chap in past discussions, Matthew has
now turned very professional after his ‘misunderstanding’ with Louise
in the pub the previous day. He even gives Carl the papers later that day to
give to the couple rather than deliver them himself.
While Terry seems to be loaded with money, Dawn is struggling. But she’s
delighted to hear that she’s got a job at the estate agents.
Diane and Bob arrive at the hospital and the patient is a bag of nerves. But
it’s actually Bob that looks the worse of the two as he recalls to Diane
his memories of his father, who died from cancer when he was a young boy. His
story reduces Diane to tears, but he encourages her by telling her that she’s
still alive and has a wonderful family in which to enjoy life.
Laurel is also close to tears as she tells Nicola about how hard she’s
finding it not being able to sleep with Ashley. Never one to hold back, Nicola
tells her she should just get on and do it as no-one is going to see the pair
at it! Good point.
Later that day Laurel is cleaning in the church as Ashley walks in. She tells
him how difficult she’s finding their distance and somehows believes that
Ashley’s job is keeping him fulfilled enough. But oh contraire, Ashley
admits he too is finding it difficult to keep his hands off Laurel, the saucy
Colleen has arrived for dinner and Chloe is annoyingly sycophantic towards her
boyfriend’s ex-wife, we didn’t realise she could be so nice! The
two talk about Carl and the ‘baby’ and Colleen tells them she’s
not surprised that Chloe’s pregnant, ‘he only had to look at me and
I got pregnant’! Obviously that same look hasn’t worked for Chloe!
It’s only a matter of time before Colleen brings up the subject of the
poison pen letters that Chas and Chloe accused her of writing. But Chloe is all
sweetness and tells her she never believed Colleen was the one to write them
and even apologies for her behaviour, much to Carl’s astonishment!
Having signed the mortgage papers, Louise delivers them to Matthew at work. She
apologises again for their misunderstanding. He still insists that she got it
wrong, but she tells him that she’s a woman and she ‘knows when someone’s
coming on to me’. She reminds him again that she’s with Terry but
hopes that they can continue their business relationship.
Elsewhere and Chas has done exactly what she said she would – got herself
an interview with the army! Denzel’s face is a classic!
