New­comer Ber­nadette is hid­ing some­thing…

TV Times - - News -

Karen Tay­lor hasn’t ex­actly had a quiet time of it since she pitched up in Wal­ford with her mot­ley crew. First, Kee­gan gave her a mon­u­men­tal-sized headache, af­ter ly­ing that he’d slept with Louise, and now Ber­nadette’s act­ing a bit shifty..

The week starts off with Karen on a mis­sion to get a job. She be­gins her search at The Minute Mart, be­fore mov­ing on to The Vic. She’d be lucky. Would Fi Brown­ing hire some­one who smokes like a chim­ney and wears jog­gers? There’s more chance of Dot hang glid­ing.

‘Peo­ple might think Karen is lazy and doesn’t do any­thing, but when you dig deep, she’s re­ally look­ing af­ter her kids,’ says Lor­raine Stan­ley, who plays the sin­gle mum. ‘The Tay­lors are tri­ers, and want to do bet­ter for them­selves.’

Karen then tries her luck at Beales restau­rant. De­flated af­ter Ian says ‘no’, she gives Jane a hand in the Square – and sees Ber­nadette re­turn­ing from school early. The teen claims she’s poorly, but Karen doesn’t be­lieve her.

The sus­pi­cious mum’s luck changes when she talks Ian into giv­ing her a job as a cleaner. Her first day at work doesn’t get off to a great start, though, when she gets de­fen­sive as Ian tries to show her the ropes. But Karen’s got more on her mind than try­ing to please Squeale. As she mulls over Ber­nadette’s sit­u­a­tion, she sud­denly comes to a wor­ry­ing re­al­i­sa­tion. Just what has the young­ster done?

On the de­fen­sive: Karen loses it with Ian
