Well, it’s been a very long time coming, but finally, Charity Sharma (Emma Atkins) is set to find out that her husband Jai (Chris Bisson) is the father of Rachel Breckle’s baby, Archie…

The drama begins after Megan Macey (Gaynor Faye) tells Rachel’s sister Ali (Kelli Hollis) that she has to get rid of the stray dog that her son Sean took in, pointing out that it’s in her lease – Ali of course rents the house from Home Farm Estates – that tenants cannot keep pets.

However, when Ruby (Alicya Eyo) points out to Ali that having responsibility for the dog is good for Sean, they come up with a plan; namely to tell Megan that the dog’s gone – and therefore get it out of the house during Megan’s inspection visit – but to secretly keep him…

But things go very wrong when, while Megan’s inspecting the cottage, she spots the pooch and immediately issues Ali with an eviction notice. What Ali doesn’t realise is that Megan actually wants the cottage for herself and Robbie…

However, by the time we see the episode that airs on Thursday 25th, after Declan (Jason Merrells) has refused to intervene, it looks like Ali, Ruby and the kids are going to be homeless, so Rachel (Gemma Oaten) tells them they can come and stay with her.

But that plan doesn’t go down well with Jai who points out to Rachel that having her sister and her family in the house limits his access to Archie. However, when Megan then begins gloating, Rachel’s pushed over the edge and she thumps Megan in the face!

Megan is of course furious and wants to call the police, but later, when Charity hears Jai defending Rachel’s actions, she wonders just exactly what it is about their family’s cleaner that makes him so quick to leap onto her side…

So when she later spots Jai going into Rachel’s, she follows him and watches – and listens – as a frantic Jai quizzes Rachel about what’ll happen to Archie if she goes to prison for assaulting Megan.

On Friday, Charity feigns illness and so, with Jai at work, she begins looking through his laptop, seeking answers…

Meanwhile, at the factory, Jai once again corners Rachel about her actions, and in a temper, she retorts that if he’s so perfect, he should take care of Archie for a while, just to see how he copes.

With that, she storms off leaving Jai frantic about what to do as he’s literally left holding the baby.

However, he’s completely defenseless when Charity then storms in, demanding to know why he’s got Rachel’s baby. And as Jai flounders, she laughs, realising her fear was justified; he is Archie’s father.

Find out what she’ll do with the news next week, but for now, here’s a look at this week’s episodes…
