Wherever David Wicks goes, trouble inevitably follows. And sure enough, viewers will tonight see him dicing with danger after it’s revealed that he’s taken a case full of cash from his business partner.
But not content with making off with the man’s money, David’s only gone and taken the guy’s missus as well. Hence the appearance of Lisa Maxwell as Naomi, a woman who quickly becomes disillusioned with life with David and puts in a call to husband Don.
And that’s when the trouble really kicks off. Don turns up with two heavies to reclaim his funds - and despite David’s protestations that £20,000 of the stash is rightfully his, the men take the money and David’s car and give him an absolute pasting in the process.
As the gang speed away into the night, a penniless David lies in a crumpled heap in Carol’s arms. Will his former love come to his aid? And what will Carol’s current partner Masood have to say about the situation? Find out when the episode airs this evening at 8pm on BBC1.
