Over at Maria’s flat, Caz makes herself cosy. So cosy in fact, that she ends up kissing Maria. It’s not what Maria expected or wanted and she’s embarrassed and backs off. She tells Audrey and Sophie in the salon. “Is it summat you give off?” Audrey asks Maria. “Well, you always seem to attract the gays!”
Craig visits his dad Darryl in jail. He looks like Craig, he’s built like Craig, but when he asks Craig to smuggle in drugs for him, you know that Craig doesn’t take after his dad. Darryl drops a bombshell when he tells Craig that he’s still married to Beth. This explodes back on the Street. Kirk walks out in tears and moves in with Maria. Craig won’t have anything to do with his mum. Beth gets arrested for bigamy and fans up and down the country were left sitting on their sofa going ‘What the… ?”
Over at the Bistro, Andy heads off to a zombie-fest, leaving Steph to cope on her own. She’s doing brilliantly, is Steph, left to cope and handle miserable Robert too. Robert has no idea what a little gem he’s got working for him.
At Roy’s Rolls Anna sticks her nose into Roy and Cathy’s business and wonders why they’re not sharing a bed. In fact, she does more than wonder, she comes right out and asks Roy about it. It’s not of your business, Anna, wind your neck in! But Cathy had confided to Anna that she wanted to share a bed with Roy. She’s still sleeping in the spare room. And when it’s mentioned to Roy, he thinks on. He knows he’s not ready yet for anyone to share the bed he shared with Hayley. And so when he says that yes, he’ll share a bed with Cathy, he orders a new mattress. He also tells her that he’ll move into her room rather than her moving into his. It’s a move of sorts, I suppose but I can’t for the life of me wonder why they haven’t all moved to Cathy’s huge house that she’s left behind and hasn’t sold.
And finally this week Freddie and Audrey share a lovely dinner in the Bistro and he kisses her hand. Then he spots a woman at the bar giving him a dirty look. It’s an old friend, Angelica, who tells him he should be ashamed of himself for playing around with another woman so soon after his wife’s death.
And that’s just about that for this week.
