The Archers

Friday, 8 July

Alistair and Denise are tired after their night out at the awards. Alistair thinks it’s a scandal that Denise didn’t win. Chelsea gives them both some advice on updating their wardrobes; you can’t put a price on feeling good. Denise gives her some chocolates as a thank you, and Chelsea says she can keep the dress she lent her. When Denise insists on paying for it, chancer Chelsea suggests an outrageous price. Alistair knocks her down to twenty pounds and pays for it himself. Denise is embarrassed but Alistair declares it an award from him and Jakob – she’s the only winner in their eyes. As they pack up for the day, Alistair wishes her a good weekend. At the chicken factory Tracy’s puzzled by Gemma’s attitude, and asks if she’s done something wrong. Gemma lightens up and sympathises with Tracy’s tiredness. Later Susan notes Tracy’s already got her eye on promotion – Jazzer’s proud of her and so is she. All Tracy wants to do this weekend, apart from an afternoon cleaning shift, is sleep. However, Gemma calls and wants her in tomorrow. Conflicted Tracy accepts the extra shift rather than risk losing others. She feels she hasn’t the energy to go out tonight with Jazzer. Chelsea offers to help so that she can go; her mum works hard for them all and Chelsea thinks she’s great. Tracy’s touched. Later she asks Susan about Gemma. Susan remembers her from Emma’s days at the factory as being nice, and an ally for Emma. She asks Tracy to give Gemma her love.
