The Archers

Sunday, 27 February

Roy and Tracy discuss where Rex’s housewarming party might be – the only clue is to wear sensible shoes. When Roy says he’s not free to come to the cricket meeting on Wednesday, Tracy admits she’s getting a bit desperate - no-one has agreed to come yet. Phoebe tells Roy that although she’ll miss Ambridge, she’ll be doing her dream job in Scotland. They muse over why Kirsty chose Bulgaria when Phoebe thinks the rewilding job would’ve been a perfect fit. Roy agrees but says Kirsty has too many bad memories here and Lexi can be very persuasive! Rex invites Amy to his party. Although initially awkward after their ‘date’ Rex breaks the ice saying they can still be friends even if they don’t fancy each other. When Rex asks if Amy had someone else, Amy says there was, but not anymore; it’s complicated. Rex admits to knowing all about complicated – he wasted years being in love with someone who didn’t want to know. But he won’t be drawn when Amy asks if it was someone in Ambridge. Later, as everyone gathers together to walk to Rex’s new abode, there’s much speculation about where it is – Kate’s yurts? The cricket pavilion? When they arrive at the river they discover it’s a narrowboat called ‘Serendipity’, covered in fairy lights and moored by the country park. Rex explains that it’s much cheaper than buying a house. In lieu of champagne, everyone cheers when Jazzer smashes a bottle on the boat and makes a speech.
