Review by:

We’ve been waiting for weeks to see the secret about Adam’s paternity come spilling out and now the night finally arrives. The bombshell comes thanks to that trusted soap standby: the revelatory videotape that characters end up watching in shocked silence.

We’ve seen such moments on EastEnders (the Christmas reveal of Max and Stacey’s affair) and Corrie (Gail learning that Lewis had done a runner with her cash), so prepare for reactions along the same lines as an old VHS featuring James and his ex-wife Emma causes an almighty row. Moira’s world collapses and James gets a punch…

About this programme

Finn and Victoria discover some old home movies in James's clear-out boxes and enjoy watching footage of the young Barton boys on Diane's old VHS player. The pair decide to bring the tapes to Finn's party later that day - little realising there's some rather less innocent material on one of them. Ross puts his heart on the line with Donna, Sean struggles without Belle, and Bernice considers Botox after overhearing Adam talking to Andy about her age.
