SUSPICIOUS PAUL FINALLY SEES THE LIGHT
Paul grows more suspicious of Niamh when he finds a receipt in her coat pocket for champagne in the Ballintine. Meanwhile, he tries to show Niamh he has changed by turning down extra work to be with his family.
When Carol is put on the spot about Niamh and Marcus, Robbie (pictured, centre, with Paul and Carol) reveals to Paul that they were sleeping together. He also tells Paul that Niamh knew about Hayley all along. Furious about what Robbie told him, Paul searches Niamh’s room for evidence of her affair – and gets more than he bargained for when he finds information about apartments for sale in Barcelona. The situation comes to a dramatic climax in a special episode on Wednesday when Niamh stands her ground and admits to Paul that after all his months of playing away, she plans to start a new life without him. As she prepares to leave, Paul warns her if she walks out the front door she can never come back, before there’s a final, dramatic showdown between the couple.
