The family are left devastated by the loss of their beloved pet pooch, and tensions are high when Counsellor Morris turns up in the village
ZAK and Lisa Dingle are left devastated by the death of their beloved pet dog.
As the couple argue over the fact they're about to lose their home, Alfie collapses right in front of them.
They later learn that Alfie has cancer, and Zak makes the heartbreaking decision to have him put down.
The Dingles hold a funeral for Alfie, but things get heated when Morris from the council turns up and Lisa ends up punching him.
In a bid to get their home back, Zak and Lisa begin camping outside Wishing Well Cottage in protest over the development.
Meanwhile, Eric Pollard – who feels guilty for paying Morris £10,000 to save his home from developers – tries to take matters into his own hands and breaks into Morris' house with Faith.
The pair team up to try and retrieve a compromising email from Morris' computer, but they need to get the evidence before he arrives home.
Eric recently told Faith how he feels about her.
The pair had a heart to heart and Eric reflected on his heartbreak after losing wife Val.
He told her: "You are special. You bring colour back into my very existence."
His words brought tears to Faith's eyes and the pair went on to have sex on the sofa surrounded by tealights.
After they'd finished, loved-up Eric said: "You are spectacular."
Returning the compliment, Faith replied: "You are the most generous, gentle and passionate man."
But Eric became distracted, aware that Faith's family's farm is set to be demolished to make way for a new golf course after he paid a councillor a bribe to leave his house alone.
Keen to keep the truth hidden, he said: "I'd be very proud to be able to say we are an item."
The pair bumped into Zach and Lisa Dingle on the farm, where Eric lied about receiving a letter from the council.
While Lisa said that was good news, Zach declared the council were messing with the wrong people in the Dingles.
