Episode: 4,008 - Easter Sunday 27th March 2005
Tempers flare as Paddy and Viv recognise their desire

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM


Sparks fly between Viv (Deena Payne) and Paddy (Dominic Brunt) during Sunday lunch laid on by Emily (Kate McGregor). However, after some tantalising games of footsie under the table, desire turns to anger as both Viv and Paddy try to deny their true feelings and end up arguing 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 (Lucy Pargeter), but is he secretly hoping that he and Chas will get back together?

Elsewhere, Debbie (Charley Webb) uses the money that Charity (Emma Atkins) gave her to bail out the Dingles. After paying Pollard (Chris Chittell) for the damage to his car, a grateful Lisa (Jane Cox) offers to take Debbie shopping.

ITV Update

Just a matter of time Sunday 27th Mar

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 left.

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?
