Having joined Stuart for a drinking session at the pub, Hayley is soon being convinced to get into Mick’s bed, just to get him into trouble with Linda.
And this ploy will certainly have the desired effect: when Linda gets back, she immediately turfs Hayley of the Vic and warns her never to come back.
With Mick insisting that nothing happened, Linda ends up blaming Stuart’s influence and insists he goes too. Mick then tries to talk to Stuart, but soon puts two and two together and realises he’s been set up. Will he be able to forgive his friend?
