Noel can’t help noticing tea lady Honey has taken a shine to him. This week he tells her he’s uncomfortable with the attention as he’s much too old for her – which is when Honey reveals she’s actually his daughter from a one-night stand!


At first Noel thinks Honey is joking. Then he’s so stunned he walks away without a backwards glance, leaving the ED barista heartbroken…

Emmerdale’s Adele Silva guest stars as church cleaning lady Holly, who manages to test the faith of her local priest Father Vincent Jackson. He’s secretly in love with Holly, but she seems oblivious to his torment! Later, however, Father Jackson realises he’s devoted to his priesthood calling.

Also this week, Cal and Tess treat a man dressed as Santa Claus, and who has a bizarre complaint... He’s got a bell glued to his hand! Then, on closer inspection, they realise the bell isn’t glued, he’s actually just gripping it very tightly!


Later Big Mac and Noel call security on the man (played by former Heartbeat star William Simons) when they spot him clutching a stolen purse. Honey, however, persuades them to let him go in the spirit of Christmas.

Elsewhere, Zoe catches Max spying on her and Dylan at the houseboat and is forced to confront him about their relationship. Grace is waiting in the hospital all day and ends up clashing with Connie, leaving Zoe with a difficult decision to make. And Ash finally comes to terms with his feelings, with a little help from Rita.
