Fair City's roving lothario Tommy Dillon is up to his old tricks.

Carrigstown was previously rocked by his steamy affair with Dermot Fahey's wife Jo.

Now Tommy, played by Geoff Minogue, is set to fall for another married woman, Debbie O'Brien.

It has been a tough time for Debbie, who is still grieving following the death of her son Michael and struggling with the blame she feels towards husband Eoghan, who was accidentally involved in Michael's death.

Debbie and Eoghan's marriage has suffered and Niamh Daly, who plays the heartbroken mum, said that her affair with Tommy will bring her a "surprising bit of joy".

"It awakens her to the possibilities that have been absent from her life for years," Niamh said.

"She becomes proactive for the first time in the pursuit of these good feelings that have been missing from her life for so long."

Sparks first fly when Tommy and Debbie decide to go for a drink together and end up staying for dinner.

The pair lock lips the next day and although they try to give each other space, they soon give in to their passion.

While Tommy is a free man, Debbie knows she is putting her marriage at risk.
