Thursday, 26 May

Jazzer’s delighted the Dower House has agreed to have a kitchen fitted. When Lily says Jazzer’s earned his bonus, Jazzer admits it will be spent before he gets it as Tracy needs a new car. She’s too independent to accept any money, so he’s going to ask for his name on the insurance as an excuse to contribute. His bubble’s burst when angry Fern says she’s on to Jazzer – she knows he’s been buying drinks for people in exchange for booking kitchen sales visits. She assumes Lily’s in on it too, but Jazzer says it’s all down to him. Afterwards he tells Lily he only did it because he and Tracy are so strapped for cash. Neil bumps into Alice. She explains that she only mentioned Brian’s financial input to Chris’s business because he was being so cruel to Brian. But Neil says it was vicious; Chris now wonders if he deserves to have a business and how many other lies Alice has told. When Alice says she’s sick of being to blame for everything, and that Neil used to stick up for her, Neil cuts her short. He’s not defending her anymore. Martha and Chris are his only concerns now. Later Chris tells Neil he’s been chewing it over and it’s all got too much. He’s going to tell the forensic accountant to accept whatever the Aldridges offer. He’s also thinking of agreeing to any conditions the Aldridges want for Martha. But Neil counsels leaving the accountant to finish his report – and that Martha belongs right there with Chris.
