The Weekly Recap
Who’s the Daddy? James it seems
James curiosity about whether Adam is his kid turns to action this week when he finds the stolen £10,000 in Moira’s cupboard and realises that she has set him up. He decides to steal something himself: Adam’s sock. He sends it off for a DNA test and when he finds out he is the daddy he decides to share the news with Moira, on her wedding day! Moira begs him not to ruin her special day and James leaves telling her that she needs to come clean to all involved. But so far she’s avoided it and made up a lie about the police finding the money. How long will James let her get away with it?
Chas discovers Charity is planning to have an abortion just days after her wedding to Declan and can tell that she’s making a big mistake marrying him. She tries to persuade her not to go through with it and also enlists Cain to see if he can make her see sense. The pair have had quite the history and it seems that underneath it all he still cares for her enough to bluff her into thinking that he’ll call off his wedding to Moira. Charity is fished in completely and admits that she doesn’t want to marry Declan and would happily run away with Cain if he asked but when the penny drops she makes out she was bluffing herself. The two weddings both go ahead….eventually.
After James delivers the blow to Moira that he is Adam’s father, she keeps the guests waiting by getting locked in her bedroom when the door wedges shut. It’s left to hubby to be, Cain, to gallantly break down the door and make sure that she marries him. The day is a big success although James worries Moira all day by getting extremely drunk and threatening to blab.
Charity is having a very small intimate wedding with just Declan, Megan, Robbie and Noah but if Cain and Chas attempting to make her call it off wasn’t bad enough, an asbestos problem means a last minute change of venue, the registrar almost doesn’t make it and Megan tries to scupper things too. First she seizes the opportunity to steal the rings and then she sets the fire alarm off during the ceremony, but Charity soldiers on and becomes Mrs Macey.
Declan surprises her with a month long honeymoon in the tropical sunshine but is unaware that she is planning an abortion. Will she manage to get rid of the baby and pass it off as a miscarriage?
…and a birth

Unfortunately Leyla borrowed it earlier that day and filled it up with petrol as promised only problem being it’s a diesel car. It breaks down leaving Alicia to deliver the baby in the backseat.
