Episode Summary

EDIT
Jenny's Story
AIRED:
Jenny (Sophie Okonedo) has a pretty good life. She drives a forklift at Mackintosh alongside her best mate, Suzie (Nicola Stephenson), so work is a real laugh. Their eight-year-old sons, Tom and Ryan, go to school together. And best of all, Jenny is marrying Suzie's brother Sam (Nicholas Sidi), who she loves big time. Perfect. Except Jenny has created this life, like a house of cards. It is a fiction, based on lies, and all it needs is for one card to get knocked out of place, and the whole thing falls... It's the day after Jenny's hen night. Nursing a whopping hangover, she's not feeling much like fork lifting, but she's still happy as anything. Until she glances at one of the heating contractors (Sean Gallagher), working on Mackintosh's cooling system. There's a jolt of recognition and her face contorts. Whoever he is, this man has put the fear of god into her. Nauseous, she runs to the toilets, but not before he has clocked her too. Jenny tries to carry on as normal, avoiding him. But one day he corners her. She tries to walk off but he stops her. The weirdest thing is that he calls her Carol. She says he has the wrong person and pulls away. Other workers are watching, so he lets her go. Jenny's life is now a continuous effort to escape him but she can't run forever. Ultimately, the cards begin to fall; as Jenny's beautiful new world unravels. Because she is not Jenny - she is, was, Carol, wife to someone called Phil, driven to run by the tragic death of her baby. The man, Neil, is not some dangerous lunatic but her ex-brother in law. And there are still more lies to be uncovered. Eventually, Suzie learns everything about her 'best friend' and holds Jenny's future in her hands. She could say nothing, let the wedding to Sam go ahead, but are some secrets too awful to keep?moreless
