In the upcoming instalment of the long-running ITV soap, Debbie (played by Charley Webb) plans for her and Tom (Ned Porteous) to go to the Christmas lights switch-on.
However, when he fails to turn up to the village event, her mother Charity (Emma Atkins) becomes increasingly suspicious.
Debbie has become concerned about Tom's behaviour over recent weeks as he has consistently failed to commit to her.
He has also dodged meeting Charity but his agreement to attend the lights switch-on left Debbie finally feeling hopeful.Related articles
