But the tangled web of lies continues because Will was also working for Malone after being blackmailed... something that Harriet was oblivious to until recently.

When Harriet can't bring herself to lie to Moira, she confesses all about the affair.

But with Moira having her own shady fling with Nate Robinson, she's hardly one to judge.

But one thing that Moira is stunned about is Harriet's confession Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) has also been involved in Malone's corrupt dealings at the garage.

Later, Cain sees Malone hanging around the village once again and decides to warn him off.

But when Malone tells him he's got a new interest in the village, Cain jumps to the wrong conclusion and thinks Malone is sleeping with Moira.

Malone's up to his old tricks

Later things turn sinister when Malone breaks in and threatens Moira to keep his affair with Harriet a secret.
