George spread gossip about Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox) around the village in order to ruin the bond between she and John Paul.
After plying John Paul with copious amounts of alcohol, the policeman came clean about what he’d done, leaving his beau in tears.
George then withdrew his phone from his pocket, and recorded John Paul, who became incredibly distressed and upset, as he demanded answers.
Upon realising that he was being recorded, John Paul begged his boyfriend to put the phone away, but it was clear that George was enjoying making his lover uncomfortable.
Tonight’s edition of the Channel 4 soap dealt with the aftermath of this, as John Paul woke with blood droplets on his chest and aching ribs too, but he was unable to remember what transpired on the previous night.
George, feigning upset, refused to speak to him, but later claimed that John Paul had assaulted him on the night in question, and he was merely trying to defend himself.
The manipulative policeman then showed John Paul the video footage from the night before, and given that he had no memory or context of such a thing, he believed George’s version of events.
The teacher apologised profusely, but George once again enjoyed seeing his beau suffer and squirm.
He refused to go to bed with his partner, claiming that he needs time to get his head around what happened, leaving John Paul completely and utterly heartbroken.
Sadistic George, meanwhile, headed off with a smile on his face, having evidently accomplished what he’d set out to do.
