One-hour episode

Victoria is miserable when Scarlett buys Daz a more extravagant gift than she has but Daz makes her feel better by telling her he loves the St. Christopher she bought him. Val catches Daz and Victoria kissing and Victoria is heartbroken when Daz betrays her by telling Val that it was her that came onto him and runs off.

Drinking with Jake, Daz, Scarlett and Aaron, Victoria slides onto the frozen lake in the grounds of Home Farm and falls through the ice and into the icy water. Victoria, in the murky water, has a moment of relief as she grabs onto a hand until she realises it's lifeless and her strength fails. Daz plunges into the gloom but can’t find Victoria.

Not wanting to give up on her, Daz makes one last attempt to save Victoria and finally finds a way out of the freezing tomb. They realise Victoria is unconscious and desperately try to revive her. Victoria finally takes a breath and Daz tries to warm her as she shakes at what she's just encountered. Who is the mysterious body in the lake?

Meanwhile, the villagers gather at the church for Ashley’s final service and everyone is confused by Nicola’s chipper mood. At the service Ashley delivers a moving final sermon leading Edna to berate the packed congregation for not doing more to save the church.

Nicola urges the congregation to bolt the doors and stage a sit in protest. She receives widespread support and soon everyone is bringing food and drink for a Christmas Day in church. Val sends Pollard and David to a fake meeting with the Bishop to get them out of the way.

On a side road outside the village the pair notice vehicles, local press and camera crews heading to the village and Pollard realises they’ve been stitched up. With the local news painting him as scrooge Pollard withdraws his offer for the church to the delight of everyone. Will Laurel and Ashley’s Merry Christmas translate into a happier New Year?

Elsewhere, Jasmine is furious to find out that Debbie and Eli have kept the money from Shane’s flat and demands they get rid of it. They head out into the woods and Jasmine makes them burn all of the money. Eli hopes it will keep her quiet but Debbie is quietly upset at seeing her future income go up in smoke.

Later, Laurel arrives to visit Jasmine and she shrugs off questions about Drake’s visit the other day. Debbie is pleased with how well Jasmine is coping. Can they keep up the pretence long enough to get away with murder? Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
