As Christmas week gets underway there are plenty of surprises in store for the villagers. Nicola is delighted when she receives a beautiful necklace but who’s it from? It’s certainly not from her hubby Jimmy!
Meanwhile Belle’s gift from Zak and Lisa has major repercussions when the Dingles get much more than they bargained for.

Nicola receives a beautiful vintage necklace as a Christmas gift and thinks it’s from Jimmy but it most definitely isn’t.

Dan denies any knowledge of the necklace leaving Jimmy to ponder…who on earth is it from?
The Dingles gather to celebrate Belle’s Christmas Day birthday.
Belle’s delighted to see her mum and dad getting on so well together and even more chuffed when she gets her pressie…
It’s a new laptop but it already has a recording on it. As the family and Zak’s wife Joanie cluster round to have a listen they’re all shell-shocked to hear a taped conversation of Zak telling Lisa he doesn’t want to move to Leeds with Joanie. Uh oh. Awkward! How is Zak going to get out of this one? And could this be the end of his short marriage to Joanie?

Emma’s simmering when Leyla makes a joke about her to Kasim. Is the unhinged nurse about to blow?
