Having won the holiday of a lifetime and the opportunity to become the new face of Shift Bleach, Viv is over the moon. Nothing can persuade her to her part with the prize - not even the fact that they rightfully belong to Laurel.
Just as she thinks she has got away with the deception, a furious Laurel storms into the shop and demands to know what is going on. But red-faced Viv refuses to budge and tells helpless Laurel to get stuffed! Ashamed of his wife’s callous behaviour, Bob is incensed to discover Viv’s double deception. He finds her lost eternity ring and realises the one on her finger is a cheap replacement.
Having found out that Marlon and Tricia are set to inherit Turner’s wealth in her place, Steph reluctantly sets off with Shelly for her first day working at Pollard's factory. But her lack of enthusiasm is clear, as she struggles to find common ground with the rest of the workers. Meanwhile, Shelly is clearly having a whale of a time leaving Steph deflated and jealous.
Having heard rumours about the potential historical value of Rodney’s land, Pollard has been secretly sniffing around with a metal detector. He is convinced he’s struck gold, when he finds some ancient coins and is overjoyed when he determines their value. Positive Rodney will be clueless to their worth, he sets about trying to persuade his pal to part with the plot of land. Little does he know, Rodney has a trick up his sleeve and is not as stupid as he looks…
Elsewhere in the village, Scott tells a fearful Zoe, that he is going
to fight for custody of baby Jean.

The feud over the competition prize recipient finally reaches a resolve after Bob refuses to join Viv on the cruise unless she first makes things right with the winning slogan writer, Laurel. A showdown commences when Betty and Nicola persuade Laurel to stand up to Viv with a compromise being reached – Viv gets the cruise and a beaming Laurel prepares to be the new face of Shift toilet-cleaner.
As Scott embarks on his date with Yolanda, he is keen to show her off and insists they drink in the Woolpack. His actions have the desired effect as Chloe and Syd watch on in astonishment. After several drinks Yolanda makes her intentions clear and tells Scott to take her to bed.
At home, Scott is overwhelmed by her forward approach and can’t believe his luck when she rips her shirt open and engages him in a passionate embrace. Shortly afterwards, Scott is left confused by Yolanda’s sense of urgency to leave. She picks up her torn shirt and heads straight for the door.
During the early hours, the police banging at the door wake a dazed and groggy Scott. He can’t believe his ears when he is told he is being arrested for rape. Once again he finds himself pleading innocence, insisting he didn’t rape Zoe Tate. He is dumbfounded when the officers tell him they are arresting him for allegedly raping Yolanda.
Meanwhile, Syd worries that Chloe may still have feelings for Scott, when he witnesses her jealousy at seeing Scott with Yolanda. But deceitful Chloe insists she is over her old flame, claiming she’ll never forgive him for sleeping with Zoe. But when Chloe tells Syd she is considering moving abroad, it is clear she has no intentions of including him in her future. He is left saddened that his love is not reciprocated.

Yolanda leaves Scott bemused by rushing off after the liaison, but
all becomes clear when he’s later woken by the police who arrest
him on suspicion of rape – allegations made by Yolanda not Zoe.
Meanwhile Chloe tries her best to enjoy the night with Syd, but both
the incident at the Woolpack and a job offer from her mum to be a nanny
in Paris are playing
on her mind.
Laurel is on cloud nine after her photo shoot for Shift despite the fact they think she’s Viv Hope. Laurel sends a copy of the newspaper article to her parents, keen to get some recognition from her non-supportive family.
Pearl's still pursuing Len’s affections, despite the
fact he’s been
avoiding her like the plague ever since the infamous kiss. Sure that he is
just playing hard to get, Pearl finally catches up with him in the
Woolpack – only
to witness his disappearing act once again.
Date: Thursday 14 August Time: 7:00pm to 7:30pm
Tired and dishevelled, Scott paces around his cell determined to find an explanation for the evening’s events. But his pleas fall on deaf ears, as the police can’t seem to shed any light on the matter telling him they are waiting for medical evidence. Having been originally accused of raping Zoe, the officers are taking the allegation very seriously and Scott fears for his freedom when he is told it is likely he will be charged now there is a second victim.
As word spreads round the village and eyewitnesses are asked to come forward, Scott is put under an increasing amount of pressure to confess to something he hasn’t done. When he sees Yolanda escorted from the station with a fresh black eye and torn clothes, it is all too much for Scott. He goes ballistic, but his angry cries that he has been set up by Chris Tate are ignored.
Meanwhile, Chris is clearly concerned by a letter confirming his appointment for a scan. Although he is in a severe amount of discomfort, he manages to hide his painkillers from Charity. To make matters worse, relations between them are at rock bottom. Chris’s suspicions that she is having an affair with Cain are driving a huge wedge between them and they are hardly talking.
Meanwhile, Debbie’s head is still spinning with the anticipation that her mother and father will reunite, having seen them kiss some days before. Although sworn to secrecy she can’t help but tell Lisa, who is disbelieving at first then becomes suspicious.
Chris lies to Charity about his scan telling her he has some business in Leeds to attend to. He asks Terry to accompany him, to which Terry agrees hoping it will be a good opportunity to ask for a pay rise.
Robert sails through his exams, much to Jack’s delight. But
knowing that his father is intent on seeing him graduate from university,
Robert worries about unveiling his new car venture and admitting he
plans to leave school.
After the midnight arrest innocent Scott remains locked up while the police try to piece together the events of the night and unearth any supporting evidence for Yolanda’s rape allegations against Scott.
Chris still hasn’t told Terry or Charity about the scan in the morning as he and his right hand man set off for Leeds. Convinced they’re away for business, Terry notices Chris is acting out of sorts and questions his well being. Sure that his depression is due to the situation at home, Terry is shocked when after several drinks in the hotel, Chris reveals he may be seriously ill.
Sensing Chris’s fear, Terry insists on accompanying his boss to the hospital in the morning. Having burned many bridges, Chris feels relieved when Terry turns down money for his time and begins to think he has a friendship after all.
Lisa is keen to observe Charity and Cain together to see if there
is any truth in Debbie’s revelation that they kissed. Having
invited Charity around, her fears are confirmed when she detects the
tension between them.
Meanwhile, Charity is fighting her feelings for Cain and, determined not to give herself away, she tries to avoid him. But Cain can read her like a book and is sure that she wants him. Is it only a matter of time before they give into their lust for one another?
Word spreads to Home Farm and Zoe wonders whether she should go to the police to ask them to re-open her case against Scott. Ashley tries to dissuade her, relaying the implications it may have on her health. Will Zoe jeopardise falling seriously ill again, or keep quite in the hope that the truth will prevail?
