On Thursday, Nathan’s angered to hear that Katie and Lee are going on a date. Purposefully trying to make Lee late, Nathan tells him he’s heard poachers are on the grounds so Lee takes Sam along to investigate and they split up to cover the area more quickly.

Hearing that her family have been blackmailing Andy, Maisie warns them if they continue to hassle them, she’ll move in with him.
Meanwhile, Leyla’s grateful to receive a loan from David to help with her mum’s nursing home costs but Val witnesses the exchange and marches straight to Pollard to inform him of his son’s ‘frivolity’.
