Review
And you thought Ashley was such a dreary cleric. He's turning out to be a bit of a party boy who's hugely attractive to women (well, Louise, the boyfriend killer, and dim Laurel).

He's getting such a reputation that his bishop hears about it and sends an emissary - Ethan the curate - to spy on Ashley in his own vicarage.

Tonight, in a particularly mortifying moment, Ashley gets caught out during a tequila-drinking contest at the Woolpack.

Elsewhere, Frances leaves Emmerdale to go back to Ronnie, but will Ali and Elaine be going with her? And with his future hanging in the balance Daz does all that he can to impress Andy.
