As a fire ignites outside the pub, will anyone find injured Vanessa before it’s too late?

Meanwhile, with the police now looking into the disappearance of Debbie Dingle’s former fiance Joe Tate, his trusted associate Graham Foster fears it is only a matter of time before the police discover Graham’s involvement in Joe’s disappearance last year.

Graham has left Cain Dingle believing he killed Joe after a scuffle outside Home Farm caused Joe to fall and hit his head. But when Graham drove off with Joe’s body in the boot of his car, he was still alive!

Graham has been hitting the booze to drown his sorrows over what happened to the man he came to think of as a son. But fearing he is spiralling out of control, Graham turns to now sober alcoholic Laurel Thomas for some guidance.
