Please note these spoilers are for the week commencing Monday 6th December
When Ethan informs her that Meena urged him not to contact his mum, Manpreet is thrown to think that Meena is playing games with his happiness.
When she questions her on it, Meena says she put Ethan off meeting his mum to protect Manpreet over the fictitious texts they sent him.
After Manpreet says they can’t deny Ethan a relationship with his mother, Meena ends the conversation and a hacked off Manpreet persuades Ethan to try again with Esme despite her own misgivings.
Manpreet is then riddled with guilt after Charles expresses his gratitude for her help and as they reminisce on happier times, she leans in for a kiss and he pulls away! Telling her that now isn't the right time for them. And she knows he's right.
Apologetic, she makes to head off before Charles calls her back and admits he’s never stopped loving her. He gets Manpreet to agree to no more secrets if they get together in the future. Will Manpreet feel the need to tell the truth to the man she loves?
Meanwhile, Rishi tells Manpreet he’ll be claiming spousal maintenance on her GPs salary to recover the money he previously lent her.
