The Archers

Tuesday, 8 February

Phoebe arrives at The Lodge to give Peggy the news about her new job. Kate assures her it will be okay, but Phoebe’s doubtful. But Peggy thinks it’s wonderful news. Phoebe was always going to outgrow Ambridge and the rewilding project; she’s worked hard and Peggy’s proud of her. Phoebe insists she’ll remain hands-on remotely, but Peggy counsels against this. It might be difficult, and Phoebe shouldn’t make promises to Rex just because she feels guilty. Peggy’s sure they’ll find someone to replace her. Phoebe reports back to her mum that they need to consider a suitable candidate to take over. Kate agrees it should be someone passionate, who gets on with Rex. As Jake prepares to go with Chelsea to a film, Mia continues to warn him off. Chelsea’s disappointed to discover Jake doesn’t have a car, and that Will’s going to take them home from the cinema. Jake tries to engage Chelsea in chat about driving, but her friend Tara calls and her attention’s diverted. When Chelsea arranges to meet up with Tara after the film, Jake’s disappointed. He’d thought it would be just the two of them on a date. Chelsea disabuses him of this. There’s no chemistry, and he’s not old enough. Mia has her ‘told you so’ moment, but it’s clear Jake still likes Chelsea. Mia’s sorry – she won’t mention it again. Sad Jake thanks her.
