Having been hit by a car, Moira Dingle is unconscious in hospital where estranged husband Cain keeps vigil
When Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) heard word that Moira (Natalie J Robb) had been mown down in a hit and run he was up at the hospital in a flash. And he won't be moving away from his estranged wife's side any time soon.
As Moira's son Matty (Ash Palmisciano) heads back to Butler's to get freshened up, Cain pretends he's going to head home too only to sneak back to Moira's bedside.
Meanwhile, Jamie, who was driving the car which hit the farmer, pales when he learns he didn't hit an animal - he hit Moira. Though his wife Andrea (Anna Nightingale) begs him to stay calm and stay home, Jamie heads over to the hospital. There, he runs into his lover Belle (Eden Taylor Draper) who can't help but notice he's acting strangely.
Knowing Jamie is desperate to come clean, Andrea follows in hot pursuit and finds her husband about to blab. Intercepting, she ushers Jamie home, and has harsh words for Belle when she turns up wanting to talk to him.
Though Belle barges inside, she soon leaves in tears when Andrea insists Jamie has made his decision and is sticking with their marriage.
At the church, Malone (Mark Womack) visits his secret lover, vicar Harriet (Katherine Dow Blyton) and insists he wasn't behind the hit and run. Playing mind games with engaged Harriet, Malone agrees to break off their affair. But what's stopping Harriet from wedding planning with eager beaver fiance Will (Dean Andrews). Has she got cold tootsies because of dark and dangerous DI Malone?
Elsewhere, Dan (Liam Fox) returns home and tries to pretend he's OK with everything while Amelia fumes to spot that Brenda (Lesley Dunlop), who she blames for his accident, has sent him a get well soon card.
