Kim Tate is impressed by Gabby Thomas when she frames Dawn to get her away from Jamie
So Jamie Tate fancies Dawn Taylor who's not in the right place for a relationship but someone else is, and that's Gabby Thomas. She's besotted with the Tate and she wants 'rival' Dawn out of the way!
The perfect opportunity to mess with Dawn crops up when Bear (Joshua Richards) drops his wallet at the HOP. When Bear arrives to collect it and Jai goes to fetch it from his desk, it's gone.
Dawn's (Olivia Bromley) unimpressed when Jai (Chris Bisson) assumes she took it but as she empties out her bag to prove her innocence, out tumbles the wallet! Dawn gets sacked on the spot, much to Gabby's (Rosie Bentham) amusement.
As Kim (Claire King) takes in the scene, she clocks Gabby's expression and, no stranger to scheming, she knows instantly Gabby was behind the drama.
Impressed with her cunning, Kim covers her back by deleting the CCTV.
Later, at Home Farm, Kim informs Gabby she knows she framed Dawn. The Tate matriarch tells Gabby she's shown potential - but has a lot to learn. And with that, a partnership is formed…
Elsewhere, Charity (Emma Atkins) attempts to get back on side with her son Noah who's hellbent on getting in shape so he can join the Army. The pair bond as they head out for a run.
But it's 20 steps back for Charity when she involves Meena (Paige Sandhu), who's a nurse, when Noah is struck with pain. His mum mentioning his medical condition gets Noah seriously riled.
In the cafe, Brenda's (Lesley Dunlop) happy when Pollard (Chris Chittell) tells her he's in love with her.
