Synopsis

Airing on ITV1

Ashley wakes up with a horrendous hangover after downing tequila in the pub with Laurel. To make matters worse, he remembers how he was caught in the act by the bishop and curate.

The Vicar flounders as he tries to convince them he doesn’t have a drink problem, but it is clear the Bishop is far from impressed. He informs Ashley that Ethan, the curate, will be staying with him for a while, leaving Chas unexpectedly out on the street.

As Ethan settles into his new bedroom at the vicarage, he is bemused to find Chas’s red lacy bra tucked away and looks to Ashley for an explanation!

From YTV EMMERDALE Thursday 18 December 2003 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Laurel is close to tears when Ashley barely acknowledges the hard work she has done of the nativity scene. Pictured: (L-R) Ethan ( LIAM O'BRIEN), Ashley (JOHN MIDDLETON) and Laurel (CHARLOTTE BELLAMY).

Unlucky in love, Laurel resigns herself to a life of singledom as she comes to terms with her feelings for Ashley. Betty does her best to distract her friend but to no avail.

Meanwhile, stressed Tricia hits the bottle at work. Diane dismays as she asks Marlon to take the tipsy barmaid home. Drunk and emotional, Tricia bursts into tears, asking Marlon what she’s done wrong. Marlon is dumbfounded as he later admits to Paddy that he is going to have to come clean to his wife.

Elsewhere in the village Scott makes himself very unpopular with the Dingles when he refuses to give Sam a Christmas bonus. To worsen the blow, Scott makes a derogatory comment about Charity and finds himself pinned up against a wall by his throat as Cain demands an apology!
