It appears that the torch Aaron is holding for Robert could well be extinguished next well when he arranges a date with a hunky new man.
Liv makes comments on Aaron spending so much time at the Hide but truth dawns on when she catches him staring at Ben.
Al introduces the pair to each other, where it becomes clear of chemistry. Even Chas is happy and persuades Aaron to go kayaking with Ben. But this is sadly where happiness is short-lived – for now. When Aaron turns up an incredulous Ben reminds him that he must have a short-term memory and quickly leaves.
When it later emerges that Aaron used to bully Ben at school for being gay he suddenly remembers. Aaron is completely ashamed of his past and tells all to Victoria.
Aaron is busy trying to make amends and apologises for the way he treated him.
Fixing a second date Aaron hopes this is the start of something special, is he right?
