Radio Times Ambridge Diary July 26-29
Roy has romance in mind when he meets online date Leyla, but obstacles in his path include Phoebe, Kate … and a long-horned cow. At Honeysuckle Cottage Ian’s suspicions reach fever pitch, and when he confronts the matter he lands himself and others in trouble.
Lynda is making it her mission to secure a celebrity to add sparkle to the fete and tasks Lilian with stalking her prey. If all goes wrong, perhaps they could ask Harry Redknapp? (He was surprisingly good when he cameoed recently on EastEnders.)
Finally, Helen urges caution, and when Adam opens his heart, one Ambridge resident makes a controversial suggestion.

Daily Mail Weekend Magazine Archers Update July 26-29
Deathwatch beetles tapped away at the ageing timber of Honeysuckle Cottage, and the gable end collapsed one dark night, causing Nelson Gabriel, all tucked up in his black silk sheets, to pass out cold. Siobhan Donovan fell in love with the cursed cottage, hoping to be build a happy home there - and look how that worked out for her! Now, more trouble brews under the picturesque thatch as Ian’s suspicions reach fever pitch.
Undaunted by this sad example of love gone sour, Roy spruces himself up and sets off to meet his on-line date, Leyla. Will it work out for him,or will his former squeeze, Kate, nip this romance in the bud?
