Oh, Matt – if only he could see how that offhand attitude was sending Lilian in the direction of Paul Morgan. Next week, old Tiger takes that blasé demeanour too far by ducking out of Peggy’s birthday lunch at the last minute. Any more of that and surely Pusscat will be straying with someone more sympathetic.
Rhys is also in an underappreciated state of mind, as a loved up Kenton and Jolene leave him feeling surplus to requirements at the Bull. Could it be that he’s also missing Fallon’s presence? At least Tom is giving Brenda his undivided attention as he bids to cheer her up following a frantic couple of weeks. Pity though that he ends up picking the wrong time and place to express his affection.
Daniel is in a celebratory mood as he hits 18. After being treated to his first pint in the Bull, he has a huge party. But for Shula it’s more of a poignant event as she reflects on how quickly her boy has grown up. Meanwhile, over at Rickyard Cottage, Emma hits rock bottom when she discovers that the joint bank account is completely empty. Faced with the prospect of feeding the family, she resorts to radical measures. But for how long will she be able to keep her guilty secret?
