It's David's birthday, but all eyes are actually on Jacob and who his mysterious girlfriend is. Though Gabby is the prime suspect, David wonders if Jacob's trying to keep it secret for fear of bringing up feelings for Leanna.

Even though gossip is rife, Jacob and Victoria decide to throw caution to the wind and use the empty house for a tryst. But when David pops home unexpectedly, the pair scramble.

David seems determined to confront Jacob's secret head on, but before he can get the shock of the life, Jacob interjects and confirms it's Gabby.

David heads out and finds Gabby in the Woolpack - and can't help but tease her on her new flame. But Gabby's, of course, left bewildered...

Meanwhile, Victoria panics when she realises she's lost a bracelet David gave her. After hurriedly looking around for the missing jewellery, she finds it, and heads for a celebratory kiss with Jacob. But what the pair don't realise is that David's outside the window, watching...
