The trouble is, the CCTV has a back-up circuit and isn’t affected by the power cut. So the footage soon reveals that the guilty party is Ryan, who is then arrested on suspicion of theft.
Ronnie will then privately accuse Debbie of orchestrating an insurance scam, while Ryan calls Debbie from the police station and threatens to drop her in it. So will Debbie come clean or is Ryan destined to lose everything?
George’s sister Glenda arrives
It’s a busy week for George, who is seen slugging it out with a rival undertaker before being offered £400,000 to sell the business.
Then, after injuring his tooth, George ends up high as a kite on strong painkillers and passing out in the back of a funeral car just before a service is about to start. And it’s at this moment that George’s sister Glenda (played by singing star Jodie Prenger) arrives on the scene out of the blue and takes charge of proceedings.
Thankfully, the funeral unfolds according to plan, while George is ecstatic to see his sibling and introduces Glenda to Eileen.
Yasmeen discovers Stu’s terrible secret
Suki from the Gazette interviews Yasmeen, Stu, Dev and Alya about their food-waste initiative. But it’s the story of Yasmeen offering Stu a lifeline when he was homeless that ends up being front and centre of the newspaper article.
In the wake of the publicity, Stu is left horrified when his ex-wife Lucy shows up at Speed Daal and orders him to stay away from their daughter Bridget before dropping a huge bombshell. How will Yasmeen react when she discovers the secret that Stu has been trying to hide?
Tim and Sally’s big bust-up
When Sally discovers that Tim has been browsing explicit websites, she orders him to go to the Casino Night on his own. And when Tim later returns home, he finds a note from Sal telling him that she’s made up the spare bed for him.
The next day, Tim’s attempts to make peace fall flat, with Sally suggesting they spend some time apart. To give his wife space, Tim heads to Victoria Garden, where he unburdens himself to Aggie, who urges him to share his worries with Sally.
Hence Tim heading home to reveal all to Sal about his fear of dying – but without confessing that his admission has come thanks to some prompting from Aggie.
Ken gives Wendy a second chance
Despite Ken having seemingly said goodbye to Wendy the other week, he’ll be seen next inviting her for a coffee.
But a drink then turns into the offer of a meal and, pretty soon, Wendy is sharing Ken’s lasagne as he confides that he knows what it’s like to feel lonely as he still misses Deirdre.
