But when Nish offers Suki more responsibility, has her plan backfired?
After Suki persuades Nish to spend more time at their business in Leeds, Ash lets him know that she’s been re-offered a job in Canada and Nish enlists Suki to dissuade their daughter from accepting.
However, wanting her daughter to spread her wings, Suki manipulates Ash into accepting the job by suggesting that she isn’t capable, knowing her daughter will accept to spite her.
Suki tells Nish there was nothing she could do and the pair head to The Vic to reluctantly celebrate Ash leaving. But Nish soon becomes enraged when he realises his wife’s deceit and threatens her back at No.41.
During a heart-to-heart with Ash, Eve convinces her to have an honest conversation with Suki.
Later, speaking to Nish, Ash convinces him to give Suki more responsibility with the family businesses.
The next day, when he doesn't hear from Suki, Nish is rattled and starts to think the worst.
