This week, focus has been on the Dingle family, who are currently in the Woolpack after Lydia (Karen Blick) summoned them. Just as the meeting kicked off, Lydia revealed that rapist Craig (Ben Addis) has been killed and believes she’s looking at the person responsible.
So far, flashbacks have confirmed Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper) was attacked by boyfriend Tom (James Chase), Caleb and Tracy (William Ash and Amy Walsh) have started an affair, and Aaron (Danny Miller) unleashed his violent rage on Vinny (Bradley Johnson) after discovering his so-called betrayal.
Tonight, attention turned to Mandy (Lisa Riley) and Marlon (Mark Charnock).
In the flashbacks, while Mandy supported an unwell Eric (Chris Chittell), who had just revealed his Parkinson’s diagnosis, Marlon was at the hospital.
After being given the wonderful news he had been discharged from the stroke clinic, Marlon bumped into Rhona’s ex Gus and his wife Lucy – who is pregnant.

Marlon discovered that Gus had stolen Rhona’s passport to fake her identity, allowing him access to her frozen embryos, which explains how Lucy got pregnant.
Marlon was disgusted at Gus and called him a thief. Lucy, who is in on the plan, then told Marlon for everybody’s sake, it’s better if the secret is kept hidden.
Told to forget he saw the couple, Marlon then headed home.

Struggling to process the news, Marlon was distracted when an emotional Rhona arrived.
She explained that she had been at a call-out with an injured dog, who had been hit by a trailer and couldn’t be saved.
It was clearly the wrong time to tell Rhona about Gus and Lucy, but how long will Marlon keep their secret for?
She was overwhelmed with emotion.
