Elsewhere, David bumps into Gaz, a man buying breath spray in the shop; the latter boasts he’s on his way to meet a loose woman for a date, and David is gobsmacked when he realises it’s Leyla. Later, Leyla overhears a noise in the Take A Vow office, and lashes out when a dark-clad figure jumps out at her. Once Emmerdale PD are called, the penny finally drops for Leyla regarding the identity of her tormentor.

Meanwhile, Jamie confesses to a stunned Belle that he was behind Moira’s hit and run. She threatens to go to the police and is amazed when he seems almost relieved.

Toyah meets with Karen the social worker, who promises she will put the fostering wheels in motion once she’s received the reference from Leanne.

Alya tells a stunned Imran that she’s decided to sell her share of Speed Daal in order to distance herself from Geoff. However, Sally suggests Alya should buy the psycho out and offers her the wedding money, pointing out that it was rightfully Yasmeen’s cash anyway.

Meanwhile, Adam suspects that Sarah still has feelings for Gary, even though he becomes convinced the ex-soldier killed Rick. And in one of the most surreal Weatherfield moments of the year, Mary calls in the factory and shows Sean the fleecy blanket she ordered online, covered in images of Ben Shephard.

Neighbours (Channel 5)

For those of us of a certain age, the return of ‘Plain Jane Superbrain’ has been a glorious trip down memory lane.

Meanwhile, David has agreed to Aaron’s idea of having Brent stay with them and is pleasantly surprised when the first visit seems to be going well, until an unsupervised moment leads to a sickening fall. The next thing you know, Emmett is in hospital with a possible spinal injury. Ouch indeed.
