Daily Mail Weekend Magazine Archers Update April 8-13
An old face - and new pigs - are heading to Ambridge this week. If only we could head them off at the border with warnings of how ghastly the place has become. Will is a broken man, Ellis the drug dealer gets nasty, Olwen is ill, and Brian carries on lying through his teeth, stirring up more trouble for the despised Aldridge clan.
The Grundys, weighed down by sorrow, start turning on each other, and Adam is too overwhelmed to take much notice of the possible approach of fatherhood.
Harrison’s attempt to improve a bad day goes awry. Alistair fails to see the bright side of being shot of Shula, and yet another shock is scheduled to arrive by the end of the week.

With Will still insisting on taking the children on regular visits to Nic’s burial site, it’s left to Clarrie to suggest an alternative - only for things to go wrong when another Ambridge resident inadvertently puts their foot in it. Later in the week, Eddie has a controversial suggestion that could put even more strain on the family - but will Clarrie agree?
Helen is fretting that her chances of winning at the Food and Farming Awards will be reduced should judge Sheila Dillon encounter Olwen.
Jazzer causes amusement at his interview at Berrow Farm, when he appears not to be taking things seriously.
And one individual is left questioning whether their life has been a lie after a secret is revealed.

In the cast are Dan, Andrew and Sheila Dillon the judge.
