This week in Shieldinch… Desperate to pay his debts, Dougie’s pursuit of money takes a sinister turn. Angus attempts to raise money for Isobel by planning a Eurovision party, and Lenny pits Amber and Lou against each other in order to wreak havoc on their relationship.

Joe piles on the pressure, telling Dougie his debt needs to be repaid by the end of the day. To make matters worse, Dougie’s shocked to discover that Scarlett has cleared their joint account to buy an expensive wedding dress.

An opportunistic Dougie pays a surprise visit to Isobel, hoping to take her out for a coffee and scam more money from her, but is intercepted by Kim.

Later, crossed wires result in Scarlett’s wedding plans going into overdrive, putting further financial strain on Dougie. With money worries spiralling out of control, Dougie makes a desperate decision to empty the shop till and fake his own mugging. While Sonny is shocked by his friend’s injuries, policeman Joe is dubious about the attack.

Elsewhere, Isobel is stressed when her music therapy classes are cancelled. Keen to do his bit to help, Angus decides to throw a Eurovision party to raise funds. Angus rallies the troops and the event is a huge success but, later, it’s marred when Angus is attacked and the charity money stolen.

Suspecting Amber is keen to build bridges with Lou, Lenny calls upon Stevie’s services to scupper their relationship once and for all. Stevie uses dirty tactics to drive a wedge through the couple, enlisting the innocent Charlotte.
