Fa­ther crime

TV Times - - Soaps -

here’s very lit­tle in the way of sis­terly love be­tween Vanessa and Tracy as they war over the af­fec­tions of their fa­ther, Frank, who’s all set to move into the vil­lage fol­low­ing his early re­lease from prison. How­ever, it looks as if he may have a re­turn ticket when Tracy gets him ar­rested.

Vanessa plans for her dad to move into her place, only she hasn’t told Tracy and asks Carly to keep her out of the way. Vanessa takes her old man to the pub, not re­al­is­ing that Tracy is on her way there, too. When Tracy spies the

Tpair to­gether, she flips and Frank pre­tends to faint. When Frank tells Vanessa she’s all he cares about, Tracy lis­tens in and sees red. She comes up with a plan to get back at him – she steals cash from Pol­lard and plants it on her dad. It works, and Vanessa is fu­ri­ous. Tracy ad­mits to fi­ancé David that she set her dad up, but what will he make of her ac­tions?

‘Frank doesn’t blame Tracy,’ says Michael Praed, who plays him. ‘It’s bad news for him, be­cause as an ex-of­fender he could go straight back to jail, but he re­ally does love both his daugh­ters and wants to build bridges with Tracy, so he doesn’t shout, scream or land her in trou­ble with Pol­lard or the po­lice.’

Af­ter a row with David, Tracy de­clares that the wed­ding is off. Tear­fully, she ad­mits to Pol­lard that she framed her dad. Pol­lard calls the po­lice, but will he rat on Tracy?

Frank is duly re­leased and tries to make it up with his daugh­ter, who doesn’t want to know. Will she ever let her dad into her life?
