Episode Summary

EDIT
Yvonne's Story
AIRED:
Exactly what is a woman supposed to do when the man she sleeps with kicks her out of their home, leaving her and her children with no where to go? This is the question facing Yvonne, a machinist at the factory. The one thing she does know, is that she will not take it lying down. Burning down her house to claim the contents insurance seems like a good idea - that's the kind of woman she is. Yvonne is no victim. A sexy, funny and attractive woman, she has a history of relationships with aggressive, sometimes violent men, but she is a survivor who gives as good as she gets. Her absolute priorities are her three children, coupled with her determination to be independent and in control of her life. But her plan almost ends in tragedy when a misunderstanding means that Yvonne's children are asleep in the house when she sets fire to it. What has she done? Fortunately for her, her next door neighbour, Jim Calvert, comes to the rescue, risking his life to save Yvonne's family. Jim is a happy bachelor with a string of women on the go, but after the fire he feels complelled to offer Yvonne and her children a place to stay. At first Yvonne is reluctant to accept - years of being messed around have made her wary. For the time being, however, she does not have much choice and before long they have made themselves at home in Jim's house. It is a drastic upheaval for Jim, but - despite having to sleep on an air bed and put up with the constant mayhem - he starts to enjoy having them around, particularly Yvonne. And so the inevitable happens, after a night of wine and take-aways, Jim and Yvonne find themselves in bed together. Two people couldn't be more different, or lead more different lives, and now there is an added complication. But for Jim, this is more than just another one night stand - falling in love is a whole new experience. He has never met a woman like Yvonne before.moreless
