James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) who has recently grown closer to ruthless club boss Liam, is a little taken aback to see him kitted out in his frightening garb, however the pair of them are soon locked in conversation and realise they have a lot more in common than they ever knew. Could this be a new pairing in the village?

Meanwhile Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher) is still feeling the heat. In yesterday’s episode she was seen looking incredibly jittery when mention was made of traces of blood found on the night of Mercedes shooting.
