Synopsis

The Dingles arrive home with more than they bargained for when their plot to rob the Tate’s goes horribly wrong.

A desperate Marlon brings some festive fun into Tricia’s life in the hope of winning her back.

Len’s plans for a romantic Christmas break with Pearl are foiled.

Airing on ITV1

Lost souls Marlon and Tricia are inconsolable as they spend time apart. Desperate to see his wife and talk her round, Marlon goes to the Woolpack. But Diane sends him away insisting that Tricia doesn’t want to know.

Refusing to give up the fight and with Christmas rapidly approaching, Marlon vows to win back Tricia by creating a festive experience she will never forget.

Despite his efforts to make things perfect, crushed Tricia tells him that she doesn’t think she can spend Christmas day with him under the circumstances.

Meanwhile, pre-robbery nerves reach fever pitch at the Dingles, as they prepare to steal money from the Tate’s. Mucking in, Chas is strategically placed as a decoy - scantily clad in just underwear and a fur coat.
