Caught in the act?
Pete get close, unaware that Sarah is nearby…
With just a week to go until Pete’s nuptials to Leyla, the last thing the groom needs is to be caught in a compromising position with the maid of honour. But it looks like that might just happen when Priya makes a move on her now ex-lover, not realising that young Sarah Dingle is in the vicinity.
Princess Priya’s in a bad way as the clock ticks down to Leyla’s big day. While the future Mr and Mrs Barton check out their wedding venue, she’s wallowing in self-pity, and downs booze at the Zombie Run at Home Farm.
‘Priya wants the husband and the family unit,’ says Fiona Wade, who plays her. ‘When she first started her affair with Pete, she wasn’t thinking about him in that way at all, but now that she’s slept with him a few times, she has fallen for him a little bit.’
Seeing Priya half-cut, Nell – who knows about the affair – fears her boyfriend’s sister will get looselipped while under the influence, and calls up Pete to intervene. He feeds Leyla a line about Moira needing his help and dashes over to the zombie fest. Pulling Priya to one side, he reassures her that she’s a beautiful woman and won’t be on her own for long.
‘As he does, they have a moment where there’s a little spark between them,’ adds Anthony Quinlan, who plays the cheating farmer. ‘They don’t actually kiss, but they do get quite intimate.’
But Sarah is ominously close by. Will she spot the near kiss?
And, if she does, will the canny schoolgirl use this golden opportunity to make a quick buck?
