over the washing up!
Meanwhile, the Kings try to help Carl (Tom Lister) come to terms with
Chloe’s (Amy Nuttall) treachery but his mind is clearly elsewhere.
Later, in the Woolpack, Carl tells Denzel not to mess it up with Chas

The dreaded Sunday lunch at the
Kirks has arrived. Viv tries to get out of it but Emily will
hear nothing of it. She joins Marlon, Donna and Paul, who have
also been invited. But Viv's attention is immediately on Paddy,
who's wearing his new glasses (did he put them on especially
for her we wonder?) Alone in the kitchen she tells Paddy she
feels awkward being there, but he insists she stay and they give
each other a smile.
But Sunday lunch is not quite so merry for the King bachelors, who are getting
used to life with no women now that Chloe has gone. Carl is clearly gutted about
the whole thing and can’t believe how gullible he was. But he admits that
he feels sorry for Chas, ‘Chloe made out she was her best friend while
stabbing her in the back.’ The poor chap is unable to finish his meal and
heads to the Woolpack for a drink instead.
Jimmy’s already there having not been invited to the King lunch. Sadie
is there too and informs him that she’s making a list of the things she
wants for their divorce settlement. ‘Well the move should be easy, somewhere
near the gutter no doubt.’ Hmm, no chance of a reconciliation there then!
While most people are eating lunch the Dingles are only at breakfast, but it
seems Cain has nicked all the contents of the farm fridge to eat for himself.
Shortly after and Pollard arrives to ask for the £300 they owe him for
Shadrach breaking his mirror off. They scrape together a few pounds between them
until Debbie comes to the rescue with money that Charity gave her before she
Meanwhile, Denzel heads to the Woolpack to tell Diane that Chas won’t be
working for the rest of the week. He tells her she’s under house arrest
at his place while she cools down. He informs Diane that he didn’t arrest
her the previous day but rather drove her round to calm her: ‘I thought
I’d heard all the swear words going – but I think she’s invented
a few new ones!’
As he leaves, Carl walks in and asks after Chas as he wanted to thank her. ‘It’s
me you should be thanking,’ the copper tells him, ‘I could have
had you all arrested.’ Carl tells him that Chas is ‘a good lass
and deserves a decent man who’ll look after her’. Denzel replies, ‘Yeah
and not some loser who gets his head turned at the first slapper who throws
herself at him.’ Harsh but fair, and Carl agrees with him. Clearly no
love lost between the two of them!
Back at the Kirks and after a bit of footsy under the table Paddy and Viv wash
up. ‘You are a naughty boy, Paddy Kirk,’ she tells him. ‘You
have been looking at my cleavage all afternoon. Not that I mind,’ she adds.
Paddy tells her that their flirting has got to stop and before long the pair
get into a argument throwing insults back and forth at each other. Viv promptly
leaves, which isn’t that quick given the mini skirt she’s wearing!
Terry spots her in the street looking upset and chases after her for a chat.
On the sofa with a drink she shares with him how lonely she is feeling and even
shows him the Lonely Hearts ad she has written. She tells him that she couldn’t
go through with placing it and: ‘I’m sad, I’m desperate, but
most of all I’m lonely.’ She asks him if he still finds her attractive,
and he of course agrees (but she is crying her eyes out, who would dare to disagree?!)
Then she admits to Terry that there is someone she likes, ‘a customer’ (we
see what you did there, Viv). ‘He’s married,’ she goes on, ‘But
I’ve come to like him a lot. He makes me feel attractive, but I can’t
stop thinking of his wife. There’s this chemistry and I know he’s
fighting it too. I don’t know what to do Terry.’
He of course is supremely sensible and advises against any action, but she tells
him: ‘I know if I don’t stay strong I’m going to ruin a perfectly
nice couple’s marriage. The things is, I’m not sure if there’s
anything I can do about it.’ Surely it's just a matter of time before the
two give in to their urges?
