Jai makes plans for Nikhil to take over the business if he goes to prison. Soon afterwards, the police arrive to speak to Charity, having received information that she lied in her statement. Jai is in disbelief when Charity says that she suspects Nikhil has dropped her in it. When DI Fletcher arrives to speak to Cain about the fresh allegations against Charity, Cain backs Charity up - not wanting to make things worse for Sarah and Debbie. At the same time, Jai is furious when Nikhil admits that he did ring the police to report Charity. Jai feels totally betrayed and signs the factory over to Charity instead, should he go to prison. Meanwhile, Ashley is struggling to cope with the gossip in the village and there is an awkward atmosphere when Paddy and Rhona walk into The Woolpack. Laurel's heart sinks to realise that they both know about Marlon. It's too much for Ashley when he overhears Rhona talking to Laurel and he leaves hastily. Later, Ashley seeks advice from Jude, explaining that he needs a change and is looking for a new parish. Elsewhere, Nicola sweet-talks Jimmy into getting Rodney a job as a driver for the haulage firm, but Carl is aghast at the idea and refuses.
