Tricia wakes in the Woolpack and, with a sickening blow, remembers Marlon’s revelation that her beloved husband has been unfaithful to her.

Despite his desperate pleas, she is adamant that their marriage cannot survive his infidelity. Heartbroken, Tricia insists it is over.

Meanwhile gossip is spreading like wildfire, as the villagers speculate whether Marlon could be the father of Charity’s baby. Cain does not take the news lying down and Zak is forced to drag him off the already bedraggled Marlon.

Amazed that Marlon has come clean, Charity is faced with the repercussions, as Cain is furious that she has played him for a fool once again. Keen to keep him on side, Charity is quick to insist the baby is his, knowing full well that it is impossible to tell until she has a DNA test.

Needing all the allies she can get, cunning Charity decides not to take the test until the baby is born, hoping to also string Zoe along by claiming that the baby is a Tate.

Elsewhere in the village, Laurel desperately tries to keep herself occupied, but she can’t get Ashley out of her head. Saddened that he doesn’t even seem to acknowledge her presence, Laurel decides to try her luck elsewhere.

The Dingles are busy putting the finishing touches to their plan to steal money from the safe at Home Farm. Will their otherwise bleak Christmas be fruitful after all?
