ILLICIT lovers Chas Dingle and Al Chapman are taking things to a new level next week.
Al (played by Michael Wildman) and Chas have since been sneaking around the eponymous village, unbeknownst to their respective partners, Kerry Wyatt and Paddy Dingle, and despite trying to stay away from one another.
Things are taken to the next level in upcoming scenes when Al proposes to Chas that they run away from the Dales together, in an attempt to prove his commitment to her.
The following day, Al gets his accounts in order as he prepares to buy a house for him and Chas and he’s delighted with the way his plans are going ahead.
Meanwhile, Kerry (Laura Norton) gets the wrong end of the stick when she sees him viewing houses online and assumes he’s looking for them.
Unable to contain her excitement, she tries to squeeze out information about the house he was viewing and Al is left feeling uncomfortable.
Kerry is all loved-up as she decides to plan a surprise of her own – blissfully unaware that Al is telling Chas he’s ready to end things with her.
Adamant on taking action, Al gets to the pub but is blindsided when Kerry proposes to him by doing a rap.
