Bring back Bill!
Strangely enough, “turning the other cheek” and becoming a better man is starting to appeal to Bill more with each passing minute – but despite his resolve there are still detractors who don’t believe he’s sincere. Brooke, the object of his obsession, may be rmly in his corner following their tête-a-tête over his decision not to have Ridge jailed for bribing the judge in Will’s custody case, but her husband isn’t of the same mind.

The rejection isn’t lost on Justin, who’s nally had enough. Changing your entire personality is just a crock that’s never going to work – or last – Justin declares, trying to persuade the man to put his
