Review :-

Sadie refuses to give in without a fight and tries to win Tom’s favour.

Steph struggles to make headway with Shelly and Turner.

Paddy realises that he’s lucky to have Emily.


Sadie (Patsy Kensit) spends her day desperately trying to make amends with the King Family. She points out to Jimmy (Nick Miles) what he is giving up but Jimmy is clearly not interested. She gets nowhere with Tom (Ken Farrington) either so seeks sympathy from Zoe (Leah Bracknell) who tells her the photos were a low trick, but understands as she was once in a similar position.

Turner begins to soften towards Steph

Elsewhere, Steph (Lorraine Chase) tries her best to speak to her dad and Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) but to no avail. Turner (Richard Thorp) admits to Shelly that he is starting to feel sorry for Steph but Shelly is determined to keep Steph out of their lives.

Meanwhile, Paddy (Dominic Brunt) realises that after experiencing recent relationship problems with Emily (Kate McGregor), he needs to accept what they have together and make the most of it.

Life goes on Wednesday 3rd Mar

Despite his heartache, Tom is carrying on his life as normal and heads into work, much to the amazement of son Max who, he’d agree himself, would surely take several weeks off after what Tom’s been through. But as his father tells him, ‘life goes on, son’.
He certainly still has his head screwed on for when Sadie goes to see him at work he has already packed up her things, much to her amazement. ‘You made your bed,’ he tells her, ‘now go and lie in it with whoever’s prepared to share it with you.’ That told her.
Steph is trying her hardest to get an audience with Turner and Shelly and calls up Betty’s on a regular basis. The poor lady is forced to lie on every occasion, until Shelly is so annoyed she grabs the phone and tells Steph where to go. But if anything, Turner is beginning to soften towards his daughter’s plight.
Later she decides to go there in person to see if she can get a response. Unsurprisingly they don’t answer the door so she decides to sit on a bench outside Betty’s house and wait. Much to the annoyance of Shelly, Turner says, ‘I can’t help but feel sorry for her.’
Things aren’t exactly a bed of roses for Paddy and Emily either as the vet becomes increasingly frustrated with the lack of time the couple are spending alone. For once in her life Emily takes it out on someone else, Viv in particular, who’s feeling sorry for herself yet again: ‘You’d rather have sympathy over insight so I suggest you get a dog because it won’t tell you anything you don’t want to hear.’ You tell her, Emily!
But later she makes an effort and tells Paddy that she’s booked a table for them in a restaurant. Paddy is happy that his wife is paying him some attention, but tells her he’d rather spend some time with her alone at home... we bet you would, Pads!
Meanwhile, Pollard gets a visit from Glynis, who tells him that he should take a post on the Arts and Leisure Committee and head the closure of the library. Eric is not amused, for such a role is likely to make him hugely unpopular, well, more so than he is.
Knowing that she’s not got her job anymore, Sadie goes to see Jimmy at Carl’s. She asks him to sit down so they can sort it out, but he can see right through her and knows that she’s not interested in him but rather the King fortune and tells her to leave. An assertive Jimmy, for once! Hurrah!
Chloe for one though is unhappy that Jimmy is still staying at her and Carl’s and, typically, tells him so. Carl’s doesn’t seem that overjoyed either. Poor Jimbo!
Now extremely desperate, Sadie approaches Matthew in the pub and seductively tells him that they have more in common than they think, ‘we both like to be on the winning side’. She tells him she’s not going to give up anything without a fight and is pleased when Matthew seems to be taking her side. But then she’s brought down to earth with a thump when he casually tells her: ‘On yer bike love, I don’t want to know.’
