So, farewell, then, Peter. His last minute attempt to win Simon over with a burger failed. Carla explained to Leanne that children can’t always have what they want, citing Simon’s carnivorism: ‘’E also wants burgers every night for ’is tea’ – implying that he can’t. Er, but before he lived with Leanne, that’s all the poor kid was ever offered. He was a one man walking McDonald’s.
Leanne can put it behind her on Monday, when Stella insists she and Eva join her for a girls’ night out, in the hope that they can bury the hatchet over Nick ( bury it in his back, if Eva has her way). Meanwhile, back at the pub, Sunita tries to seduce Karl (right) and, being Karl, he succumbs. Alas, the girls arrive back early, just in time to find the adulterous pair, and Stella demands to know what’s going on. Well, they aren’t changing the optics, love.
Stella’s response is to throw Karl out, Dev’s is to beg Sunita to give their love another go (or maybe he’s just trying to lure her back so that Aadi can use her skull for his golf practice). With nowhere to stay, Karl heads for Sunita’s, and on Thursday, when Dev finds them together at the Bistro, he goes ballistic. Now what, pray, are Karl and Sunita doing there, rubbing everyone’s noses in their adultery? Still, it’s enough to push Dev over the edge, although not, alas, over Beachy Head, which is where, if there were any justice in the world, he would be.
Mary is busy getting her claws stuck into Roy on Monday and invites him to a classical concert. ‘Sir Edward Elgar has touched parts of me no other man could reach,’ she explained this week, as they shared their love of the cello concerto. Alas, for her, Roy suggests that Hayley join them. Oh, dear. You don’t get Elgar without there being strings
