ACCUSED of murder, Stu Carpenter was thrown behind bars and shunned by everyone in the cobbles.
Contudo, Yasmeen Nazir comes to her senses next week in Rua da Coroação and makes an important decision.
Did the former homeless man portrayed by Bill Fellows really murder his former lover Charlie Walter?
ITV viewers were heart-broken and shocked when it was revealed he had confessed to the crime.
Mas na próxima semana, and as he has previously made clear, it becomes apparent Stu was actually tortured into giving a confession.
Could Yasmeen Nazir, jogado por Shelley King, change her mind about him as her grandchildren fight for the truth?
They stumble upon the former navy’s interview tapes, which prompts the solicitor (Sam Robertson) to point that Stu was questioned for over ten hours.
This turns out to be against the rules and, to top it all of, there’s a tape missing from the case files.
Alya then pays Stu a visit in prison but Yasmeen interrupts and it’s clear the restaurant owner is ready to hear him out after giving him the silent treatment.
Stu tells Yasmeen the whole story of his affair with Charlie and he requests that Zeedan and Alya speak to his own solicitor, Norman.
The latter confirms exactly what Stu has been saying – he was coerced into making a confession, deprived of food and thrown into desperation.
Feeling for Stu, Alya puts pressure on Yasmeen to allow him back at No.6 as she’s certain he’s actually innocent and has nowhere else to go.
After turning her back on him, believing him to be responsible for Charlie’s death, Yasmeen backtracks and is waiting to see him step out of the prison gates, much to his surprise.
In Victoria Garden, she tells Stu she believes he’s innocent and asserts that he must let Bridget know his intentions.
Stu reluctantly agrees but the pair then make their way to the cobbles.
