DEATH IN THE FAM­ILY!

CHRIST­MAS AND NEW YEAR ARE FAR FROM FES­TIVE FOR THE BE­LEA­GUERED Platts!

Soap World - - PRIMETIME UK - SW

One of the Street’s long­est-serv­ing fam­i­lies, the Platt clan, is a hot­bed of emo­tional up­heaval – and 2018 is prov­ing to be one of their most chal­leng­ing years! Al­ready, they’ve dealt with the aw­ful fall­out from Bethany’s sex­ual groom­ing, then David’s hor­ren­dous rape and more re­cently, the dark se­crets Nick’s brought home from Not­ting­ham with him. As the year draws to a close their mis­ery only wors­ens as Au­drey’s lover Lewis fi­nally shows his true colours.

Ear­lier this year, Lewis (Nigel Havers) resur­faced on the cob­bles to fur­ther ma­nip­u­late two of his for­mer fraud vic­tims, Au­drey (Sue Ni­cholls) and her daugh­ter Gail (He­len Worth), with a new scam to fleece them of their life sav­ings. Hav­ing been cheated of over £40,000 be­fore, Gail didn’t trust Lewis – how­ever, her mother re­mained smit­ten with the man she once loved! Swarthy Lewis wasted lit­tle time re­gain­ing Au­drey’s trust and se­duc­ing the sep­tu­a­ge­nar­ian back into his bed. And al­though Gail and her chil­dren loudly protested the re­vived ro­mance, Au­drey ig­nored their con­cerns, adamant that Lewis was a changed man.

Months later, Au­drey’s still hap­pily in love with Lewis, who’s bid­ing his time as her live-in boyfriend, and painstak­ingly in­gra­ti­at­ing him­self with her fam­ily and friends, even join­ing them for a fam­ily din­ner at the Bistro to wel­come Nick home. Around the ta­ble he eas­ily chat­ted with Au­drey’s grand­son while es­tab­lish­ing him­self as a lov­ing pa­tri­ar­chal fig­ure for the group.

Leop­ards rarely change their spots, though, and the com­ing weeks are likely to re­veal the true ex­tent of Lewis’s sin­is­ter in­ten­tions. His eyes are firmly on Au­drey’s very healthy bank balance – but a wily Gail’s sus­pi­cions of him are bound to go into overdrive when she learns what’s up, lead­ing to heated clashes among the Platts... It all looks set to re­sult in a hor­ri­fy­ing, in­tense, macabre blood­bath that will leave one of them, per­haps even Lewis, dead!

It’s an awkie mo-mo as Leyla con­fesses her jit­ters to Priya!
