But desperation is never a good look in business and Justin has got a whiff of weakness from the perennially underprepared band of whingers (Rex excepted from the latter charge).
After whining on to Pip and Rex that they should take the almost certainly dodgy shared farming deal from BL without question, Phoebe is left conflicted when Brian tries to warn them off, telling them Justin’s only got himself in mind – but Phoebe refuses to listen and doesn’t tell Pip or Rex what Brian has said. Pip comes to the final meeting full of renewed enthusiasm to sign while Rex says it’s great to be in a team where they all trust each other…One for all and all for Justin?

Helen is gutted – she has her heart a set on a lifetime of awkward dates with a man who has all the charisma of a parsnip.
Kirsty should really tell her it’s no great loss – but she’s got enough on her plate with managing Christmas-loving Phillip, who’s rivalling they Grundy World of Christmas with his approach to Christmas. He’s now in the market for a giant snowman for the front garden.
Poor Helen – will she ever find a man and move on from Robert?Source: Read Full Article
