Gabby Thomas [ROSIE BENTHAM], Kim Tate [CLAIRE KING] (ITV)

Kim can be so contradictory: on the one hand, she’s desperate to future-proof the family dynasty, but on the other, she seems intent on playing her supposed nearest and dearest off against each other. Yet her grasp on power is currently slipping and, with her mind in an increasingly confused state, she’s set to leave a garbled voicemail for Andrea while looking after little Millie before then losing consciousness.

When Kim comes to, she finds Millie in the throes of an allergic reaction. Luckily, Jamie saves the day, but when Andrea finds out about what’s happened, she forbids Kim from ever seeing her granddaughter again.

However, there are other Tate heirs on the horizon and when pregnant Gabby starts showing off her scan photo, Kim rather disturbingly starts referring to the image as “my baby”. Something tells me Gabby may regret allowing her to get so close. If Kim lives to see the birth, that is.

Dawn and Jamie’s secret romance

A bottle of tequila proves to be the catalyst for Jamie and Dawn deciding to give their relationship another go. But there are no prizes for guessing who’s contemptuous about the fact that they’re now a couple again. Yes, it’s conniving Kim, who immediately tries to get her son to break things off with Dawn.

Jamie Tate [ALEXANDER LINCOLN] (ITV)

Not that Jamie’s paying any attention to his mum’s meddling. Quite the opposite, as he’s managing to convince Dawn that they should see each other in secret. And with Noah currently acting as his eyes and ears at Home Farm, he continues to have a spy in the camp there, too.

Faith arouses suspicion

There’s more dodgy behaviour from feckless Faith, who comes up with a plan as regards her hearse and is then spied by Pollard pinching bedding and a mattress.

Their behaviour is then witnessed by Brenda, who starts to wonder whether something shifty is going on between her fella and Faith. But just what is Faith up to? And might her actions have something to do with Nate, who feels that he can no longer do anything right at home?

Jimmy sees red following Nicola’s betrayal

You know the rain cloud that’s been hanging over the head of Jimmy King? Well, it shows no sign of shifting just yet. In fact, he’s about to face three big new dents to his already bruised ego.

Nicola King [NICOLA WHEELER], Jimmy King [NICK MILES] (ITV)

First, Jimmy’s invited to the police station for questioning and learns that he’s being charged with death by dangerous driving. Then, there’s the devious Nicola trying to hoodwink him into signing over half of the business over to Charity, who’s soon making it clear that she’s now in charge at the scrapyard. And finally, there’s the continued presence of Juliette, with whom Jimmy ends up arguing in the street. The trouble is that the ill feeling is now starting to affect young Carl, who’s clearly suffering with all the upset.

Making a plea for unity, Nicola tries to get Jimmy to pull the family together. But fans should expect Nico to be left floored when her husband makes a shock declaration about the future.
