Jamie is back with estranged wife Andrea after the Christmas bombshell that Andrea slept with Graham Foster. But their reunion hasn’t done much to stop Jamie’s feelings for Belle.

With Jamie and Belle both working at the vets, you would be hard pushed to miss the sexual tension between the pair.

But instead of going home and coming clean to his wife, Jamie found Andrea waiting for him in her lingerie. He struggled to turn her down when she brought on the charm.

Jamie has a guilty conscience by next week and finds a way to avoid spending so much time with Belle – by sacking her from the vets.
