Tuesday 2nd February

This week in Shieldinch…Caitlin’s quest to get a job backfires plunging her deeper into financial trouble; Alex’s alibi shocks the family as his wife’s life hangs in the balance; and Robbie is forced to reconsider his future following the salon fire.

Caitlin confides in Ellie about her financial woes and is encouraged to turn her life around and get a job. However, her positivity proves short-lived when the interview doesn’t go well. Worse still, the interview makes Caitlin late for a dole appointment and she has her benefits sanctioned.

With no payments for four weeks, Caitlin blames Ellie for making her go for the job in the first place.

Feeling downbeat, Caitlin tries to return interview clothes she bought from the charity shop that morning but is given short shrift by an unimpressed Molly. The altercation proves to be a catalyst for change for Caitlin.


Elsewhere, Alex, the police’s prime suspect at the station, is forced to confess his alibi – he was with Angel.

Finally free from the police, Alex rushes to be at Kelly-Marie and his unborn baby’s side. However, Scarlett’s relief at seeing Alex quickly disappears when Robbie reveals Alex slept with Angel not only on the day of Kelly-Marie’s accident, but the night before the wedding.

Robbie assesses the burnt out remains of his salon and is forced to rethink his future while Molly faces her own mortality.

The mood darkens further when Kelly-Marie is rushed into surgery for an emergency caesarean with the fate of her unborn baby hanging in the balance.

Caitlin is played by Gayle Telfer-Stevens, Alex by Jordan Young, Robbie by Gary Lamont, Ellie by Leah MacRae, Molly by Una McLean, Angel by Hanna Stanbridge and Kelly-Marie by Carmen Pieraccini.
