Craig, meanwhile, continues to manipulate Samson as a way of increasing the friction in the Dingles’ household. At the Woolie, he attempts to extract information from Samson about Lydia’s relationship with Sam. But when Lydia herself arrives on the scene, she furiously tells Samson to go home, which leaves Craig feeling uneasy.
Samson is left under orders to stay away from Craig, while Mandy’s concerns grow that there’s something very wrong with Lydia. Later, while cleaning at the office, Lydia is put on edge when Craig turns up. And when he voices his insistence that he’s done nothing wrong, a pent-up Lydia finds she can hold her anger back no longer and calls him a rapist. But what reaction will she receive from the man who attacked her?
Jacob’s allergic reaction
During a tasting event, Victoria erroneously informs Jacob that a dish is nut-free – a mistake that results in him having an allergic reaction.
With panic ensuing, those in the vicinity start to search frantically for an auto adrenaline injector, with a struggling Jacob managing to indicate that there’s one in the car. As Jacob weakens, Leyla struggles to keep her composure, but when Victoria rushes to retrieve the pen, she fails to find it in the vehicle.
Victoria gets fired
As Jacob is then hurried to hospital following his allergic reaction, David rushes to be by his side. Leyla, meanwhile, is angered at Victoria’s mistake and is soon going all out for revenge.
Later, a shame-faced Victoria admits her mistake to Gabby, who ends up losing potential buyers for HOP. And when Leyla threatens to ruin the business because Victoria is still in post, Gabby is left with no option but to fire her – a move that leaves Victoria devastated.
Unsettling news for Gail
Following a romantic meal in the company of Ryan, Gail will be seen heading off on her own so she can follow up on a mysterious phone call.
She subsequently meets up at the allotment with a woman by the name of Sophie, who leaves Gail shaken when she reveals bad news about somebody called Oscar. But who is Oscar and what is their connection to Gail?
Cathy dates Samson
There’s also drama with Cathy, who ends up stunning Amelia when she reveals a new plan to cure her PMDD symptoms.
Later, Cathy gets a boost to her confidence levels when Samson reciprocates her flirty banter. And this flirting soon leads to Samson and Cathy arranging to go on a date that evening.
