A noise emanating from the cellar makes Kim suspicious as to what’s going on down there. But instead of blaming the sounds on, say, a scurrying rodent or groaning pipework, Will does the soapiest thing imaginable and distracts Kim by taking her to bed!

Kim Tate [CLAIRE KING] (ITV)

As deflection tactics go, it’s quite extreme, especially seeing as Harriet is just yards away in her subterranean bunker. And how is Will going to react when a satisfied Kim suggests that they meet again for a repeat performance? Maybe Harriet is destined to spend her entire period of repentance listening to Will and Kim bonking in the bedroom?

Paul leaves Vinny panicked

Vinny Dingle [BRADLEY JOHNSON], Paul Ashdale [REECE DINSDALE] and Liv Flaherty [ISOBEL STEELE] (ITV)

It’s another frustrating week for those wanting to see putrid Paul get his comeuppance. After enduring his worst battering yet, Vinny is now in hospital and is about to confess all to the police when his despicable dad shows up. As Vinny clams up in fright, Paul criticises Liv for having contacted the authorities. But she’s insistent that something needs to be done about this senseless attack.

Sensing that Paul’s anger is rising, Vinny tries to protect Liv by telling her to drop it. But knowing how tenacious she can be, Paul will be seen ordering his son in private to get Liv off their backs or else.

In the end, a fearful Vinny breaks up with Liv in order to keep her safe, but despite her shock and heartbreak, she’s determined to track down the thuggish Connor, who she believes is responsible for the assault. I wonder how long it’ll be before the mask slips and Paul flips out in Liv’s presence…

Mack’s help comes at a price

You know the old saying about a person being so crooked they’d steal anything that wasn’t nailed down? Well, I get the impression that light-fingered Mack would use a hammer claw to thieve the nailed-down stuff, too. Why anyone trusts him is a mystery. And Aaron, himself no stranger to subterfuge, really ought to know better.

The upcoming drama sees Aaron reluctantly accept Mack’s offer of help in the search for Connor. But it soon becomes clear that Mack has actually dragged Aaron into another of his dodgy deals after he convinces him that they should “borrow” one of Jimmy’s vans and meet a contact in a lay-by.

Aaron Dingle [DANNY MILLER] (ITV)

But as some less-than-legit TVs are being loaded into the vehicle, the police show up, Mack has it away on his toes and leaves Aaron to take the rap. What a snake!

Jimmy gets a bad press

As it turns out, though, Jimmy having his van used in a dodgy deal is the least of his problems. He’s also tearing out what hair he has left about the damaging anonymous reviews the haulage company is receiving online.
