Newcomer Eric, who is the long-lost brother of Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) and Verity Hutchinson (Eva O’Hara), has been desperate to fit into the village ever since he arrived out of the blue.

Eric has got his hopes up that Cleo McQueen (Nadine Mulkerrin) could be a potential girlfriend for him after the two of them recently grew close.
However, tonight, and with the partying still underway, Eric’s hopes are shattered when he sees a very spicy text from priest Joel Dexter (Rory Douglas Speed), Cleo’s ex.
Former lovers, Cleo and Joel have recently grown close again.
