You're never too far from a bit of drama in Pontyberry, but, this week, it's brimming with the stuff. Things begin nicely enough, with Stella and Michael enjoying a family outing with the kids, not to mention some dirty talk (she loves it when the lawyer talks 'valleys').

Events take a darker turn, however, after Katie - who has been acting out for a while - ends up in A&E, a wake-up call that raises question marks about Stella and Michael's future together.

Aunty Brenda can always be counted on to lighten the mood, though, and, boyo, is she on fine form, giving Dai the whatshername by staging a strike following a double booking on the buses.

Plus, proud parents Luke and Zoe get the ball rolling on their wedding plans, and the Morris household might have to make room for yet another guest when Collette finally rumbles her husband's affair with Emma.
