The Archers

Monday, 7 February

Tom has a dilemma. Natasha’s excited to tell people their baby news, and so is he, but it’s the fifth anniversary of when he and Kirsty’s lost their baby this week. Understanding Natasha says she’s happy to wait another couple of weeks before going totally public, but Tom doesn’t want Kirsty finding out from another source in the meantime. After all, Hazel knows about the pregnancy and is a loose cannon. He arranges to meet Kirsty, who pre-empts him by guessing Natasha’s pregnant. She assures Tom she’s fine with it, and congratulates him. But when she finds out it’s twins, it becomes clear the news is hard for her to take. Tom reports to Natasha that he’s messed it up, and that Kirsty’s upset. When Natasha probes the history a little she wonders why Tom hasn’t told her before. He admits he finds the loss of Wren, their son, too much to talk about. Natasha suggests he visits the Remembrance Garden where Wren’s ashes are scattered. Jake’s staying with Mia at Grange Farm. She suspects he’s seeing someone, which he hotly denies. She won’t let it go, and is appalled when she discovers the mystery girl is her nemesis, Chelsea Horrobin. She warns Jake Chelsea will break his heart – because Chelsea doesn’t have one, which Jake is about to find out.
