Ding! Ding! It’s round two for Gail and Eileen as they come to blows over Michael Rodwell in the coming weeks.
Gail and Eileen famously came to blows over a decade ago and have been at loggerheads pretty much ever since. But there will be proper fisticuffs once again in scenes to be shown on Monday 29 June after news of Michael’s recent dalliance with Eileen reaches Gail’s ears.
In a spirit of honesty, Michael and Gail will be seen agreeing that there should be no more secrets between them, only for him to admit that his recent heart problems were brought on by a moment of intimacy with Eileen.
Cue a showdown at the salon (and out on the street) that sees Eileen insist that she and Michael only shared a kiss and that he really isn’t her type. But such talk only fuels Gail’s anger and pretty soon the two women are once again slugging it out as the Platts watch on in horror.
In her rage Gail makes some disparaging remarks about Michael, but her anger quickly turns to regret as she spots her husband, who’s heard every word. Can he forgive Gail’s behaviour or are the couple back to square one?
