Kim Tate [CLAIRE KING] (ITV)

To achieve this, Kim has blatantly taken inspiration from Succession, so get ready for her to announce with a dramatic flourish that she’s stepping back from the business. What she hopes, of course, is that the sniping and bickering which ensues will result in the guilty party confessing to having laced her brandy decanter with drugs.

The smart money has to be on either Will (seen recently loitering by the booze trolley) or Dawn (who, lest we forget, once had her own drink spiked by Kim).

Liam Cavanagh [JONNY McPHERSON], Bernice Blackstock [SAMANTHA GILES] (ITV)

With everyone’s emotions getting a tad overwrought, Bernice ends up convinced that there’s still hope for her and Liam getting back together. Before she gets carried away with herself, Nicola tries to offer up the reminder that it was actually Gabby who Bernice returned for. Yet it looks as though it’ll take more than a few wise words to put the returnee off her plan to win back the local GP.
