Jimmy’s 40th birthday party becomes an unforgettable evening when Charity bursts in and blurts out that she and the birthday boy have been having an affair. When the Kings refuse to believe her allegations, she whips out the evidence and plays the incriminating videotape. Tom is stunned as the tape confirms that Sadie set Charity up to stop the wedding and a distraught Sadie launches herself at Charity. The Dingle retaliates by flooring her arch rival before heading for the door. Tom is shocked by the revelation and he realises that his mistrust of Charity was due to his own insecurity because of the age difference. He is also aware that he has lost Charity when she is unable to return to him at his his very emotional behest. It becomes abundantly clear to Tom that Charity truly loves him and Sadie played on his own weakness and gullibility. Charity leaves the King's with herself respect and dignity intact as she tells Tom she needs her freedom because for the first time she is not accountable to anyone. Charity goes to collect Debbie but as Cain tells his daughter that he can’t bear the thought of losing her, Debbie turns to Charity and announces that she is staying with her father. With Noah beside her, an emotional Charity drives off into the night. Back at Holdgate Farm, Chloe continues to watch the tape and is shocked to hear the truth about Paul Marsden’s death. Matthew threatens her to forget what she has seen, but will she remain tight lipped?
