Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) is set to further her money-making scheme next week when she gets involved with dodgy business contact Pete (Thomas Aldersley), who wants her to get involved in courier work involving drugs.
Despite Charity’s (Emma Atkins) warnings to steer clear, Debbie is determined to get rich quick by any means necessary and sees Pete as a way of making a lot of cash.
“It’s all about making a better life for her kids,” says actress Charley Webb. “But she doesn’t know what she’s doing. She’s gone a bit AWOL.”
Back at the garage, Dom (Wil Johnson) and Charity try to make Cain (Jeff Hordley) see the trouble that Debbie has got herself into. But will Cain’s subsequent warning that Pete should not go near Debbie do the trick?
Not if Friday’s actions are anything to go by, as it’s here that Debbie meets Pete on a secluded country road and attempts to sort things out for herself. So why is Debbie being so headstrong?
“She had an awful 2012,” Webb explains, “and she’s still heartbroken. Her child nearly died. Her best friend and the love of her life have shafted her. I think she wants another focus, but deep down it’s all about the heartbreak.”
