DESPERATE FOR A CONFESSION
inally, we know why Linda has F turned her back on Mick and – fair play to her – she is heading WAY out of her comfort zone to force a confession out of slimy Stuart. This week, prepare to shout at the telly quite a lot as Linda begins her plan (following a slight rant from Shirley, who reveals that Mick is refusing to see her and if Linda doesn’t put things right, then she will). On Monday, Linda KISSES Stuart – but then flees the room, disgusted with herself. If gets worse when Stuart (lording it up in Mick’s Santa costume) suggests maybe Linda should find a new Father Christmas, as he has “too much respect” for Mick for anything to happen between them – yeah, right. Worried that her plan may fall apart, Linda pleads with Stuart to carry on helping out – and suggests they have a “nightcap” (noooo!). Away from this horror, there’s lots of screen time for Kat and Alfie, who are feeling amorous again and share a little kiss. Alfie is still being very hands-on with Hayley’s baby, especially when she gives the tot a special name, but Hayley is worried about their secret being exposed, so once again resorts to desperate measures in a bid to put things right. There’s also some stuff with unlikely drugs mule Tiffany – who gets into a pickle, and confides in Bernadette when Lily finds her stash of illegal substances…
Don’t do it, Linda!
