Dan is flabbergasted to see a “To Let” sign outside his house, but when he confronts Kim, she has to mask the fact that she’s unaware of what’s going on. Later on, Kim vents her anger on Gabby for not keeping her in the loop and insists that Dan and Amelia need two months’ notice.

Events then take a further turn when Amelia is caught by Kim attempting to steal Gabby’s latest prison visiting order. And, soon enough, word also reaches Dan’s ears that Amelia has been impersonating Gabby in order to see Noah. But there’s at least relief for Dan on the housing front when Harriet invites him and Amelia to live at Woodbine.
Meanwhile, Charity receives word that Noah will be released from prison in just a few days’ time. But when her son gets home, his first move is to shun his mother…
Lydia’s wedding planner stress
Kim has always been a believer in Lydia, though she might be expecting slightly too much when she unveils her as her new wedding planner.
As we all know, Kim isn’t exactly the lowest maintenance resident of the village, so fans can expect Lydia to be left super stressed when she’s left to organise what she hopes will be the wedding of the century.
Cheating Al is confronted by Kerry
Chas is buoyed up when she discovers that Al is back, but their initial meet-up is almost scuppered by Kerry, who wants to spend some time with him. But Al still manages to organise a secret meet-up with Chas for later on.
What he doesn’t realise, though, is that Chloe has overheard Al’s appointment plans and she ends up telling Kerry where her fella will be later that day. Hence Kerry getting glammed up and positioning herself in the hotel reception, unaware of the fact that Chas and Al are currently post-coital in an upstairs bedroom.
When the cheating lovers then try to exit, Al clocks Kerry and ushers Chas away from the scene But Kerry is getting more suspicious by the second, especially when the receptionist informs her that no Al Chapman currently has a booking. The stage is therefore set for a showdown back in the village when an angry Kerry confronts Al about his recent whereabouts.
Sandra seduces Rishi
Mandy knows that money is missing from the tip jar and has a prime suspect in her sights: Sandra. But Liv’s light-fingered mum is aware of Mandy’s theories and makes a big show of putting customer Rishi’s tip in the pot.
Aware that she now needs to find a new source of income, Sandra’s ears then prick up when she hears that Rishi has had an unexpected windfall. And before long, Rishi has received a response on his dating profile from a very interested woman, unaware of course that it’s Sandra manipulating events from behind the scenes.
When the lady from his dating app later fails to show for their meet-up, Sandra swoops in, having set Rishi up nicely. The morning after night before then finds Rishi worried how the situation looks, and Sandra can’t help but play on his insecurity. Hence Rishi handing over an envelope of cash to make up for his behaviour…
