He took her by the throat but the pair were interrupted by Dave who threw Mike out. When Dave threatened to call the police Eileen was forced to confess - she'd killed Roy.moreless

    Eileen and Sadie couldn't agree how to run the pub. Eileen wondered if Pete's name was allowed to be above the door if he was in prison. Sadie argued that it wasn't a great showing of support if she took Pete's name down. Lucy suggested that they should have a new years raffle; Sadie said that she didn't have time to arrange such a thing so Eileen said that she'd arrange the party. Sadie was mortified!
