The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

A burned piece of toast in the caff or a spilled drink at The Queen Vic are nor­mally good- enough rea­sons for a punch-up in Al­bert Square, so with one res­i­dent banged up for murder and his ac­com­plice still at large, ev­ery­one’s re­ally spoil­ing for a fight.

This week Shirley is de­mand­ing money from Phil, Tanya and Sharon are com­ing to blows on a play­date and The Vic is be­ing re­duced to a pile of rub­ble on Fri­day when ten­sions spill over fol­low­ing the football match.

On Mon­day, see­ing that Shirley is strug­gling, Al­fie does what he al­ways does for any­one in trou­ble: of­fers them a job. It’s only a week since he took on Fats, mak­ing the Queen Vic the most over­staffed pub in the whole of Bri­tain.

By Tues­day Sharon – lips a- quiv­er­ing, eyes arolling – is telling any­one who’ll lis­ten that she plans to leave Wal­ford as it holds too many bad mem­o­ries. So stop com­ing back!

But for some in­ex­pli­ca­ble rea­son, her son is des­per­ate to stay and Sharon even­tu­ally re­lents. Lit­tle Den­nis is one of the most adorable kids to live on Al­bert Square, but he’d bet­ter start drop­ping his Ts and aitches pronto if he wants to fit in. The lad sounds more like one of the Fa­mous Five than the son of a bar­maid and a cock­ney gang­ster.

Holed up at Patrick’s, Jay’s black mood is lifted when he hears that Abi has re­turned home – but any hopes he has of a happy re­union are quickly shat­tered when she dis­cov­ers what he has done.

Mean­while, tea- cosy still firmly glued to his head, Ian is des­per­ate to re­build a re­la­tion­ship with Bobby and Lucy. He has a break­through af­ter spend­ing the day with Bobby, but this only serves to push Lucy fur­ther away.

And on Fri­day the iden­tity of Kat’s mys­tery lover is fi­nally re­vealed… but just how long will it be be­fore Al­fie finds out?
