Beth bumps into Lily in a Felpersham chocolate shop and they get chatting about siblings. Later over cocktails Lily recounts cuddling the Easter Bunny who she thought was Russ. When Beth teases Lily about her and Russ’ relationship, Lily reveals she slept with a colleague a few months ago. Beth is shocked at the admission and gets cross. Lily asks her not to tell anyone else. Lily explains her infidelity has helped her see that she does love Russ and that she needed to connect with him properly. Things between them are better now. Ian pops over to Ambridge View to share some gossip about the Gleeson twins being champion ballroom dancers in their youth. The chat cheers Ian who is feeling down about Grey Gables having so few customers since lockdown. Talk turns to comfort food and Susan’s surprised to hear Ian’s choice would be tomato soup with cheese and bread followed by a particular instant dessert. Ian’s over the moon when Susan pulls a packet of that very dessert from the cupboard. After languishing in her room for days, Amy tells Usha and Alan about sleeping with Chris. They are both understanding and remind Amy that Chris also has responsibility for what happened. Amy shares with them how she poured vodka away for Alice and worries that her and Chris’ liaison might push Alice back to drinking. Alan says that alcoholism is a complex illness and she can’t take responsibility for the decisions Alice makes. He comforts sobbing Amy as she apologises for making a mess of everything.
