The Donovan family have finally seen Darcy Wilde’s true colours after it was revealed that Toby is Glenn’s son – not Adam’s.
But Darcy’s sticking around in the village for a while yet and she’s got her eye on a new victim – Tom Cunningham.

Tom has a miserable birthday, and the news of his inheritance cheers him up – after he first thinks he’s got £1000.
“It’s not that he’s ungrateful but he did think he’d have more than that,” Ellis explained.
“He re-reads the inheritance letter and learns that the thousand pounds was just last month’s interest on the total sum – which is over a million quid!”
