Rita persuades Audrey Roberts to put their quarrel to bed by giving her a hairdo. Audrey’s relieved when Rita clocks her bottles of wine but merely asks for a glass.
Finding Audrey and a freshly-coiffed Rita getting on famously, Shona smugly takes the credit for getting these two back on track. But when Audrey bridles at being set up, Rita’s patience snaps and, with a parting shot about her daytime drinking, she flounces out.
Is this the end of their friendship for good?

Meanwhile, will the guilt get too much for Daniel, forcing him to confess to someone close to him?

I've always had a passion for TV and movies, and got my dream job as TV Times Listings Editor over a decade ago. previously I was interviewing celebrities on a freelance basis for What's On TV, TV Easy and TV & Satellite Week magazines. There's nothing better than going behind-the-scenes of TV shows to bring our readers on set secrets and gossip!
