This week in Shieldinch…Eileen and Lenny’s vendetta gathers pace with Brian caught in the crossfire; Angus is taken aback by an unexpected proposal from Angel’s friend, Cassie; and Molly rumbles the truth about Alasdair’s living arrangements.

Eileen’s enraged when the Tall Ship is unexpectedly shut down by the police after anonymous complaints. As far as Eileen’s concerned there’s only one person to blame – Lenny.

This week in Shieldinch … passions explode as Annie and Alex succumb to temptation; Lenny embarks on a charm offensive with the community, much to Eileen’s disgust; and Angus and Bob are left holding the baby when Stella calls on their help.

Desperate to fight her growing attraction to him, Annie does everything in her power to steer clear of Alex but he seems to be everywhere she turns.

In an attempt to put Alex out of her head, Annie suggests to AJ they go on a mini break. However, realising why AJ wants time off, Alex turns down AJ’s holiday request.

Furious, Annie confronts Alex and is taken aback when he admits he scuppered their plans out of jealousy - he can’t bear the thought of Annie with anyone but him. As Annie tries to walk away, passion takes hold of her.


Lenny manages to get Amber out of jail but revenge is a dish best served cold as he plots against Eileen.

Eileen decides to get the community behind her fight against the Murdochs and their unfair eviction of the McLean family. However, Lenny decides to play Eileen at her own game and spots an opportunity to win the hearts of the locals and get one over on Eileen in the process.

Elsewhere, Angus has new business ventures in mind but ends up holding the baby with Bob when Stella needs help with Hope.

Annie is played by Dawn Steele, Alex by Jordan Young, Lenny by Frank Gallagher, Eileen by Deirdre Davis, Angus by Scott Fletcher, Bob by Stephen Purdon, Stella by Kiera Lucchesi, AJ by Sanjeev Kohli and Amber by Jenny Hulse.
