00:03 01 May 2004
Torn Todd's confusion and heartache continued throughout the week as he hopped from one lover to another whilst wrestling with his conscience - should he stick with safe, steady Sarah and their forthcoming baby or should he cop off with the randy naughty nurse Karl? Decisions, decisions. After leaping in and out of Karl's closet he finally resolves to start a relationship with his secret gay lover. But will Karl be prepared to share his man?
Elsewhere, Fred struggled to contain his anger and hurt having discovered Mike and Penny's betrayal. He busies himself with his work, but he was evidently distraught. The steak baps obviously failed to woo the lady. Another seduction technique is needed methinks.
The unbearable, screeching Sally's obsessive behaviour went beserk this week as her control over daughter "Rawzie's" future became downright weird. Our Kev was not amused, as ever, and the dreary couple came to blows. Our "Rawzie's" audition went disastrously wrong and mum Sal slapped the little tyke around the face. To rub salt into the wound, the poor teen was dumped boyfriend Craig. Oh, the angst. EastEnders
It has been a dramatic week for poor, moaning, lolling Laura as Walford resident bitch Janine reported her to the authorities for fraud. In truly brilliant scenes Janine continued to spit venom at the troubled single mum by scuppering her chances of a job at the Mini Mart. Foolishly, a desperate Lozza attempted revenge on the ex-prostitute/murderess/gold-digger resulting in a almighty face-off. Let's just say Pat is in for a shock. I did say foolish.
Meanwhile Ash returned to his gambling ways in an effort to resolve the Ferreira's financial predicament. Just evict the lot of them.
The opening of the club hit trouble after burst water pipe threatened to ruin the big night but the occasion passed without incident for the newly reunited faaamily Watts until the arrival of a surprise guestDen's wife. It's dangerous to allow another woman into the family fold, wouldn't you say? Emmerdale
Charity continued to impress old crooner and Mike Baldwin lookalike Tom King and was rewarded with the offer of a permanent position in the family business.
Sparks flew between her cousin/boyfriend Cain as the ex-prostitute, jailbird and errant mother vowed to work her way back to her former glory as lady of the manor, whilst her loser lover was left angry and hurt. Too many emotions in one day for that one. Will she climb that ladder to her boss's bedroom? Probably.
Meanwhile Zoe was forced to acknowledge her loneliness as she taunted her nemesis Charity on the street. Dejected, she shared an intimate moment with village lothario Scott, as she wallowed in self-pity over a glass of whisky. Will the village lesbian fall for the charms of her daughter's father once more? Will they share another romantic moment in the back of Land Rover? An unlikely couple. Hollyoaks
Izzy struggled to deal with he sadness and decided to reveal that her depression had been caused by her inability to have children. Things just never seem to be looking up for that one.
Elsewhere, Debbie seemed to be enjoying the attention she received from Darren, though she's not too fussy, as her boyfriend is currently serving life for murder. The girl needs a break.
