Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) has reluctantly agreed to attend a wrestling convention with his partner Chas (Lucy Pargeter) and best friend Marlon (Mark Charnock). There, they hope to find out if Paddy’s biological dad is actually a wrestler called Bear Wolf (Joshua Richards) who’s alleged to have had an affair with the vet’s mum.
The trio are disappointed to find the convention is being held in a dingy working men’s club – it’s far from the ritzy event they’d imagined. Overcome by nerves, Paddy goes outside to catch a breath and then runs straight into Bear! Will he find the words and the courage to talk to the wrestler?
At Butler’s, Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) is in a dark place following his shake down with the police – and with Graham Foster. Turning to Moira (Natalie J Robb), he tells his wife she’s the only person he trusts.
Meanwhile, Faith is making efforts to repair the rift in her family but is getting Debbie back on talking terms with Cain too much to ask?
Elsewhere, Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy) has money worries and is given food for thought when one of her friends suggests she rent out a spare room at Mulberry. Which local, who’s about to be evicted, makes the suggestion?
