David and Adam are overseeing the calves at the milk-bar when Lynda pops round to enquire about an oak tree. She has heard that the Wards want a crown reduction, but has a feeling there is a tree preservation order on it. Having no luck with David and Adam, Lynda goes to Mike. She also offers a supportive word and suggests that Vicky will be an excellent mother. Later that evening, Mike confronts his wife. He is upset that Vicky has told people outside their immediate family about the Down’s syndrome diagnosis. Vicky thinks Mike is being unreasonable.
A bored Pawel is disappointed that Adam is not at Honeysuckle Cottage. Ian invites him to stay for dinner and offers him a glass of wine while he waits. Once Ian has prepared the meal, he joins Pawel. They chat about the phone calls Ian has been getting from Ambridge residents asking for bread-making tips. Suddenly, Pawel tells Ian that he’s attractive and swoops in for a kiss. Ian firmly tells Pawel he is out of line and, when Pawel doesn’t get the message, he is asked to leave.
Later on, Adam is shocked to hear the news. Ian reassures his husband that he wasn’t tempted by Pawel’s advances.
