Charity Dingle [EMMA ATKINS] (ITV)

In the run-up to the assault, what we’ll see is the electrics at the Woolpack cutting out and Chas and Marlon shutting up for the day, unaware that someone has deliberately severed the external mains cable. A hooded figure then breaks in, crowbars open the till and pockets the cash, only to be caught in the act by Charity.

As a result of the confrontation, Charity is left unconscious in a pool of blood and is later rushed to hospital in the back of an ambulance. In the aftermath, Chas breaks down when she learns that Charity has a bleed on the brain, while suspicions start forming in PC Swirling’s mind as he starts to investigate the pub robbery.

Paddy sells his soul

Paddy Kirk [DOMINIC BRUNT], Kim Tate [CLAIRE KING] (ITV)

The catalyst for this unlikely partnership is Al, who is about to buy Marlon’s entire stake in the Woolpack. Not wanting the flash businessman to be involved in the running of the pub, Paddy ends up asking for Kim’s help in getting rid of him. But she has a Faustian pact in mind and sets her terms: Paddy must dope Kim’s racehorse for the money to keep Al out of the pub.

After agreeing, a wretched Paddy will then be seen in a layby by the racecourse with Kim, who tells him that his problems could worsen if her doped horse doesn’t win. Hence Paddy listening nervously to the race itself and praying for the result to go Kim’s way.

Eventually, the horse is victorious and Kim ends up handing Paddy an envelope of cash. But will Paddy be able to resist Kim’s offer of making this a regular assignment?

Will Gabby elope with Jamie?

Gabby is set to present Jamie with a now-or-never ultimatum: that they run off together and get married. But he isn’t taken with the plan and instead makes a final play for an incredulous Dawn, telling her that she should follow her heart so they can be together.

Diane Sugden [ELIZABETH ESTENSEN], Gabby Thomas [ROSIE BENTHAM] (ITV)

But Gabby might not have much of a chance to put her plan into action anyway, what with Diane finding out what she’s intending to do. And yet despite Diane pleading with her to reconsider, Gabby is set to pack her bags and head off, leaving a message for Jamie that he should meet her on a country lane, so they can elope.

What Gabby isn’t expecting, though, is for Kim and Diane to then screech into view in a car and tell her that she oughtn’t to be marrying a man who doesn’t love her. But will Gabby see sense? And will Jamie even bother to show up?
