Kim Tate is raging right now. Moira Dingle has dared to reject her offer of cash for Butlers and she’s going to hit the farmer where it hurts. And what better way to do that than to make a move on Moira’s (Natalie J Robb) beloved husband Cain?
But these days Cain’s (Jeff Hordley) a happily married man and he’s not for turning, especially with Kim Tate who’s threatened to get him sent down for Joe Tate’s murder!
Cain’s rejection only serves to put him at the very tippety top of Kim’s hit list.
Happier times elsewhere for Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) and Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) who share their pregnancy news with their loved ones. Charity and co are absolutely delighted for the couple whose daughter Gracie died last October just hours after she was born.
Their news is in stark contrast to Charity’s. Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick) pales when Charity finally owns up about her recent tragic trip to Scotland where she was summoned by Lisa Dingle who tearfully told her she has a terminal heart condition. Vanessa is now in the know but the rest of the Dingles – and Lisa’s daughter Belle in particular – are still comfortably in the dark.
Across the village, Rhona Kirk’s struggling too. Following her hysterectomy she’s coping with the sudden onslaught of the menopause and is suffering sweats, moods, the lot.
Worried about how this will affect her relationship with younger man Pete Barton (Anthony Quinlan), Rhona (Zoe Henry) refuses to share what she’s going through and pushes him away.
