Were Kerry's suspicions correct?
Warning Belle against Al, Chas is worried that he's got ulterior motives, but when she relays her doubts to Kerry, she starts to wonder if there is something going on between the pair.
The next day, Al notices that Priya is upset as he and Belle enthusiastically regale their business plans. When he questions her, Priya opens up about her body confidence issues, leading to a charged moment where they lean in for a kiss.
With Al constantly checking his phone, Kerry notices, and her suspicions pique. Meanwhile, Al and Priya agree their encounter shouldn’t have happened and decide to keep it between themselves. However, Cain has overheard and has other ideas.
Digging for dirt on Al and Belle, Kerry heads to confront the wrong pair as they conduct a meeting with a wellness influencer.
Later, in the Woolpack, Cain is nursing a pint and deliberately lets slip about Al and Priya’s rekindled spark when Kerry arrives and she throws a pint over Al during his resurrected business meeting. As the client, Carrie, backs out of the business deal, Belle is left devastated.
When he spots a smug Cain watching the spectacle from the bar, Al realises who leaked his secret and later on Main Street, the men draw battle lines and Kerry demands Al collects his stuff and leaves.
