Unbeknown to Jack, Diane has been busy preparing a surprise medieval party for his birthday. As the locals gather in the Woolpack, Diane struggles to explain why she has given him a pair of tights for his birthday.

After much persuasion, Jack finally agrees to put on a Henry VIII costume,

under the impression that he is going to be helping out with a promotion at the pub. He feels like a prize fool until he walks into the pub to find a medieval banquet in full swing in his honour.

As the party gets underway, Katie and Robert flirt with each other and the chemistry between them intensifies.

From YTV EMMERDALE Tuesday 25 November 2003 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Kate (SAMMY WINWARD) and Robert (KARL DAVIES) share a kiss as they light the candles for Jack's birthday cake.

When Diane sends them to the backroom to light the candles on the birthday cake, sparks fly as their hands meet and they share an intimate kiss.

Having walked in on his scheming brother attempting to rob him blind, Bob gives Eddie the cold shoulder. Will depressed Eddie be forced to leave the village for good?

Bob and Viv visit Terry in hospital to show him the birthday celebrations on their camcorder. Recovering Terry is delighted to see familiar faces and is deeply touched by their gesture.

Elsewhere in the village, Rodney gives glum Nicola a credit card, claiming it is a perk of having an obscenely rich father. But feeling bored and miserable, it doesn’t do much to improve Nicola’s mood. Later she bumps into Simon again at the pub and apologises for her rude behaviour. As they have a game of darts, Emily and Paddy are amused that after the initial friction they seem to be getting on like a house on fire.

ITV.COM Birthday Kisses Tuesday 25.11.03
Diane gives Jack tights for his birthday
Jack Sugden starts his 56th birthday with champagne and a shock – he’s going to have to dress up as Henry VIII! Cunning Diane pretends it’s for a promotional photo for the Woolpack.

Andy, Katie and Daz drop in for presents. Daz has been infuriating, a welcome distraction for Katie, who’s preoccupied with thoughts about Robert. Jack’s new hat goes down well, but they are outshone by cocky Robert who rustles up a new mobile. “It’s called style” he tells Andy slyly.
Nicola
Bob is still seething from Eddie’s betrayal. Emily, trying to be sympathetic, finds herself on the wrong end of Viv’s temper, and is fired. Only to be unfired a minute later once customers come into the café.

Nicola’s listless, and even a shopping trip – aided by Rodney’s gift of a credit card with a £5K limit - can’t lift her spirits. She returns home with nothing more than a pair of boots.
Jack is overjoyed when surprised by his whole family in costume, and can’t believe it when he finds out the pub has been decked out in his honour.
Robert & Katie kiss
Eddie is drowning his sorrows in the pub, and trying to be alone. But after much persuasion from Emily, Eddie confronts Bob. He’s sorry that things turned out the way that they did, and that he’ll pay everything back, but he hopes his brother won’t turn away from him. But when he offers his hand, Bob – remembering how much of a disappointment his perfect brother really is – ignores him and tells Viv it’s time to go.

Meanwhile Nicola meets Simon in the other bar, and despite playing darts truly appallingly, starts to really enjoy herself.

Robert keeps a close eye on Katie all night, even following her outside when she needs some air, but she manages to keep control and ducks back inside as Robert makes his move. Robert is sulking, rebuffed, but realises he has a second chance when Diane asks them to light Jack’s candles together. Alone together, and with a few drinks inside them, the two yield to their passions and kiss.
