As the hens and stags get ready for the evening ahead, Daniel’s intrigued to see the Rovers’ CCTV is hooked up to Peter’s laptop and shows a bird’s eye view of the ginnel. Beth’s produced a DVD of clips of Sinead’s childhood but when Robert hands it to Daniel to play out at the bistro Daniel forms a plan.
With the stag do under way, Daniel corners Chesney in the Rovers’ back yard and leads him to believe he’s swapped Beth’s DVD for the CCTV footage of their altercation. Chesney’s horrified and as the hens gather in the bistro to watch the DVD, Chesney bursts in and knocks Beth to the ground in a desperate bid to stop the video. As Beth writhes in agony, Sinead’s appalled, while an intrigued Tracy presses play. Is Chesney about to be exposed?
