So for that reason, Brenda has ended her romance with Bob, leaving the single-dad confused and hurt over the sudden rejection. And what’s worse is that poor old Bob thinks his mate Dan Spencer (Liam Fox) is now dating Brenda, when in fact, he’s only looking out for her as he knows how ill she is.

When Val Pollard (Charlie Hardwick) upped and left her husband Eric and took off to Portugal for months, the hard-nosed Geordie expected to simply waltz back into the village and take up where she left off…
But of course, while she was away – having also cleared out Eric’s bank account – Eric began a relationship with Brenda Walker (Lesley Dunlop), who, though arguably not as exciting as Val, was a calm and steadying influence in the Pollard household.
