Ashley is awkward as Brenda asks if he will be staying the night at the B&B. He admits that he hasn't been paid yet so isn't sure. Later, Ashley has a meeting at the job centre, where the advisor asks about his previous job. Ashley explains that he resigned from his parish, but the advisor states that the computer says something different. Ashley can't believe his short time at the burger bar counts as his last job, but the adviser demands to know why he was sacked. The adviser then tells Ashley that he is entitled to claim benefits, but the circumstances around his sacking will be investigated. Ashley hears that he will receive his money in the next 14 days, but he is desperate - needing cash immediately as he has nothing. Back in the village, Ashley plays down his money troubles to Laurel, telling her that he has job interviews lined up. Towards the end of the day, Ashley slips into the church unnoticed, homeless and broke. Meanwhile, Robbie arrives at Home Farm and Declan encourages Megan to take him out. Megan is troubled, but reluctantly agrees before heading out to a meeting. Robbie then tells Declan that he will only be staying for a few days, but Declan encourages Robbie to stay longer and really get to know Megan. Megan listens to their conversation out of sight, troubled by what she has heard. When Megan finally makes a show of returning home, Declan is irritated that she wasn't back sooner. Declan heads out while Megan asks Robbie to stay and talk. Megan starts by asking about Robbie's family life, before making him aware that she would like to make up for everything she missed out on when he was growing up. Elsewhere, Gennie tells Chas that she hasn't yet informed Nikhil she is pregnant, while Chas is sickened watching Debbie and Cameron say their goodbyes.
