Just when it looked as though Rachel (Gemma Oaten) and Sam (James Hooton) had missed their chance to get together, Cupid’s bow eventually finds its target.
In the coming weeks, viewers will see the pair share a kiss after Sam admits that he wishes that it was he rather than Samson who’d sent Rachel a Valentine’s card. Sam will make the confession on a visit to Rachel’s, where initial awkwardness soon gives way to passion as the two villagers smooch. Rachel is thrilled by the development, but Lisa (Jane Cox) can’t help but wonder whether baby Archie’s father will feel the same way…
Rachel and Sam’s kiss will be broadcast on Wednesday 27 February at 7pm on ITV.
