Back to Darren, who is mid-awkward conversation with estranged wife Mandy Richardson (Sarah Jayne Dunn) about whether he wants to be with her or Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox) when he's struck on the head by the falling sign. As he languishes in a coma both women wonder which of them he truly loves.

While Mandy learns Darren and Nancy were getting closer just before the accident she makes a shocking decision which spurs her love rival into action, just as the patient starts to rapidly deteriorate. Will Darren die before declaring who his heart belongs to?

Donna-Marie returns

Who's excited to see Donna-Marie again, ghastly mother of Juliet and Romeo Nightingale (Owen Warner)? Only the viewers, it seems, and certainly not her own kids who are far from impressed at her sudden reappearance in the village.

Jules has been avoiding her calls for weeks, but now mummy dearest is back and insisting she's cleaned up her act and kicked the drugs. Romeo immediately declares he wants nothing to do with her, leaving Juliet facing a dilemma as to whether to allow her peripatetic parent back in her life. Either way, dastardly Donna-Marie says she's sticking around for the foreseeable future…

Brody is happily planning his wedding to fiancee Summer, oblivious to the fact she's going to make their big day a nightmare as revenge for his part in killing her father. Oh, and don't forget she's in a secret toxic fling with his ex-fiancée, Sienna Blake (Anna Passey).

As their nuptials draw closer, Brody thinks he's making a sweet gesture by asking his best mate Damon to walk his bride down the aisle, in the absence of her dad, which just makes Summer's blood closer to the boil. Arranging a prison visit to Buster Smith, what exactly does Ms Ranger want with her boyfriend's childhood abuser?
