The Archers

Wednesday, 18 May

Mia’s horrified to be served by Chelsea when she goes for her afternoon tea treat with Will at The Orangery. They snipe at each other undetected by Will, but as it escalates, Freddie steps in and tells Chelsea he’ll take over. Later Freddie asserts firmly to Chelsea that he won’t tolerate such behaviour and that she needs to rise above it, even if Mia was winding her up. Chelsea says she understands. Adil tells Roy he’s negotiated a long-term bed and breakfast stay at Ambridge Hall, because of the building work at Grey Gables. When Roy asks if Adil’s given any more thought to offering Roy the job that Kathy turned down, Adil says he emailed an offer first thing – the job’s Roy’s if he wants it. Roy is less than ecstatic when he notices he'll be on less money than he was before, especially when he’d heard from Kathy there’d be a substantial increase and a car. Adil explains it’s for a different position and the salary reflects that. Deflated Roy accepts the job. Adil immediately whisks him off to be photographed for the website as ‘the reassuring face of Grey Gables’. When Adil says the holding website will go live today, nervous Roy says he’s not sure he wants his face out there – people may feel betrayed if he makes a big show of coming back to work there. But Adil’s having none of it – he needs staff who are proud to work there. Roy’s the best man for the job and Adil advises him not to blow it for himself.
