Shane just can't resist Heather's charms as love tryst heats up in Fair City
Fair City's latest love tryst storyline, which has gripped the soap's viewers, intensifies this evening as Shane tries to call things off with Heather - but she knows how to keep him coming back for more.
The dishy doctor called time on their affair on Sunday night, but tonight he tells even more lies to his girlfriend, Ama, in order to keep seeing Heather.
It seems he tried to do the right thing by ending it, but just can't resist her charms.
The conniving mum, played by Una Kavanagh, has been drugging her daughter in order to get his attention and, now she finally has it, she isn't going to give up on it easily.
However, now that Ellie is better, Heather's mum, Renee is becoming increasingly suspicious as to why Shane is calling over all the time.
Ama is also starting to suspect that something is up, as Shane starts lying to her in order to spend more time with Heather.
He tells Ama that he is spending the morning at home to go over the books - but really intends to call over to see Heather.
When Shane returns to work he is caught out when Ama tells him she called over and let herself in, but he wasn't there.
Shane lies again and says he never intended on doing the books, but wanted the time to himself.
Later Shane, played by Anthony Delaney, confides in Heather that he is worried what this affair is turning him into, and she is annoyed when she suggests they hold off for a bit.
However, later on in McCoy's, he can't keep away and follows Heather upstairs where they kiss.
Shane vows to tell Ama tomorrow.
Next week, the net is set to close in even further around the pair as both Bob and Renee find out about their tawdry affair.
Bob appeals to Shane on a number of occasions to call it quits, but he ignores his advice.
Heather is desperate to cling onto him and things spin out of control when Ellie ends up in hospital again - thanks to her mum.
Anthony said his character is "intoxicated" by Heather and can't see what a negative influence she's having on his life.
"It's proving very difficult for him to resist her," he said. "It's clear that she is playing Shane to her own advantage, but he can't see it. He wants to be around Heather, he's intoxicated by her - if she calls he comes running," he added.
Una said her character Heather is mentally unwell and just likes the attention she gets from Shane.
"He's a doctor - she likes the care and attention Ellie gets from him," she said.
Fair City airs tonight on RTE One at 8pm.
