Al Chapman is back from Dubai and all he can think about is Chas Dingle.
As his girlfriend Kerry tries to get some alone time with her man, Al gives her the swerve so he can be with his married lover Chas!
In the pub, the cheating pair sneakily organise a hotel date in plain sight of Chas' husband Paddy.
Though poor Paddy is none the wiser, Chloe over hears Al talking about a 'hotel appointment' and innocently tells Kerry who then plans to surprise her businessman boyfriend by turning up to seduce him!
Glammed up and posing as Al's PA, Kerry arrives at the hotel and sits in the lobby waiting for him.
When the lovers make to leave the hotel after a steamy session, shocked Al spots oblivious Kerry and manages to sneak out with Chas.
Meanwhile, fed up with waiting, Kerry makes enquiries and is told there's no booking under the name Al Chapman.
Later, back in the village, Kerry confronts Al about the hotel... How will he get out of this one?
