After Chas'' arrival with Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) and Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) last night (Thursday, June 23) the pair shared a gentle kiss, despite Chas being married to him.
Chas recently has had trouble coping with the revelation that her mum, Faith (Sally Dexter) has terminal cancer.
Chas and Faith have an emotional heart-to-heart in the last nights episode, and Chas is slowly coming to the conclusion.
Despite her grief, she discovered a hospice brochure Paddy had hidden in his bag.
When Faith needs palliative care, Paddy reluctantly advised her that at some point she might need it.
Chas was furious with Paddy''s helpful words and was thrown out before he could say anything more.
Chas arrived at The Hide wanting to talk with Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) about the wellness retreat and discovered Al who offered to book her in at some point.
Before Chas could leave, Al stopped her and asked if she had taken his advice from earlier and talked to her mother openly about the diagnosis.
Chas'' frustration was quickly brought back to an end, and she gave her hand to Al, who told her that she had taken Paddy''s gesture the wrong way and that he had just wanted to help.
Al offered to be a friend, but she slowed down.
Chas was enthused to Al about Faith and how much she loved her, despite leaving her as a kid.
The couple remained close to grabbing a bottle of wine, but passion thwarted and they kissed.
On social media, fans slammed the pair''s behavior and slammed him. Paddy was sadly fine.
