Debbie re­ceives a text from Joe


Inside Soap - - WELCOME! - Kate White

There’s more mis­ery for Debbie this week, as her fi­nan­cial and le­gal trou­bles mount – and she fi­nally re­ceives word from run­away groom Joe.

Debbie has been liv­ing a night­mare since her hus­bandto-be failed to show up to their hospi­tal nup­tials, and the po­lice ar­rested her for or­der­ing Ross’ acid at­tack. Worse still, she’s had to watch from afar as her ill daugh­ter Sarah recovers from a heart trans­plant. So, al­though Debbie is out on bail and try­ing to re­build her life, she’s in tur­moil. Then she gets a text from Joe that sim­ply says, ‘I’m sorry’.

“This is go­ing to come as a sur­prise to view­ers since it looked as though Joe was six feet un­der,” muses our Dales in­sider. “The last we saw, his life­less body was in Gra­ham’s boot, and the next thing we knew, Joe’s for­mer right-hand man was cry­ing buck­ets af­ter seem­ingly killing him. Debbie doesn’t know any of this – she just thinks Joe aban­doned her and the kids. So to re­ceive such a pa­thetic apol­ogy doesn’t go down at all well.”

See­ing Debbie’s mis­ery is hell on earth for her dad Cain, es­pe­cially as he be­lieves he is re­spon­si­ble for Joe’s death. And it’s not just Debbie’s heart­break that’s a con­cern – her bills are mount­ing, and she has no way to pay them. Cain and Moira try to step in, of­fer­ing her work at the garage, but they’re in bits when she tear­fully asks them if they will take in Sarah and Jack if the worst hap­pens and she’s sent to prison.

“Debbie trusts no one more than her dad, which makes Cain’s se­cret even harder to bear,” says our spy. “She had a life full of hap­pi­ness ahead of her with Joe, de­spite his de­cep­tion over the true owner of Home

Farm, and Cain feels as if he took it all away.

Joe’s pa­thetic apol­ogy doesn’t go down at all well with Debbie…”

If she finds out what he did, their re­la­tion­ship will be com­pletely de­stroyed.”

There’s one ray of hope for Debbie, though, when doc­tors tell her that Sarah’s new heart is re­spond­ing well. Debbie’s elated, but she’s later forced to tell Sarah that she could be fac­ing years in­side. Char­ity tries to re­as­sure her, yet Debbie feels hope­less. Then she gets the mes­sage from

Joe. Did he write the text, or is some­body else be­hind it?
