Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) may have been Ross Barton’s (Michael Parr) unlikely saviour in the wake of Donna’s death, but events look set to take a passionate turn in an upcoming episode.
Ross’s fiery temperament has been to the fore ever since his girlfriend Donna took a fatal plunge from a rooftop in last week’s episodes. But Debbie – who was of course rebuffed by Ross a few months ago – has ended up providing a shoulder for him to cry on.
Now, in scenes to be shown on Friday 29 August, Debbie will find a tearful Ross packing his things and planning to move away. She tells him that his grief will just follow him wherever he goes, but he breaks down, angry that Donna didn’t tell him that she had cancer.
Caught up in the moment, Ross kisses Debbie before asking her to say that she loves him. But will Debbie give him what he wants? And where does this leave her relationship with Ross’s brother Pete (Anthony Quinlan)?
