Paddy Kirk wants to make things better with Chas Dingle and has decided, after seeking advice from best friend Marlon, that a romantic meal is just the thing. But nothing is really the “right thing” for Chas (Lucy Pargeter) right now as she’s a mum grieving the death of her newborn. Of course Paddy (Dominic Brunt) is grieving just as much but their heartache is driving them apart.
When Chas returns home and finds the romantic spread waiting for her, she flips out. An argument whips up and spills out of the back room into the bar! As the locals slip out to leave the couple to it, the row reaches the point of no return as Chas orders Paddy to leave.
Rhona Goskirk and Pete Barton plan some time alone. But they’re dogged by interruptions first from Paddy and then Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick). Finally, at Dale View, the couple are alone. But as Rhona (Zoe Henry) and Pete (Anthony Quinlan) get lost in a kiss on the sofa, they fail to notice they’re being spied on by an intruder! Who’s lurking?
First episode of Emmerdale this evening.
