Emmerdale's Bernice Blackstock (played by Samantha Giles) was left beaming from ear to ear when she gazumped Nicola King's (Nicola Wheeler) offer to secure ownership of The Grange. The former hairdresser will be running the B&B with business partner Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) but fans are sensing a romantic spark between the pair.
The Grange had been owned by Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) for years and Bernice faced fierce competition against Nicola and Jimmy King (Nick Miles).
A war was waged between Bernice and Nicola, with the latter believing the business was hers after offering Eric the asking price.
Nicola called Bernice "snide" for stealing the B&B away from her before their row turned messy.
"Oh dear, not so smug now the show is on the other foot, are you?" Bernice added.

"This was my dream, remember, until you gobbled it up like the corporate greedy architect of misery that you are."
Nicola replied: "You have never taken responsibility for your actions, it always has to be my fault."
When Bernice suggested Nicola had always been jealous of her, she fumed and the women soon started smearing rotten food down each other's faces.
"It's rancid, you absolute cow," Bernice fumed at her relative after being covered in out-of-date food.The men watched on in horror at the women fought (Image: ITV) Bernice was covered in rotting food on Emmerdale (Image: ITV)
However, Bernice had the last laugh by the end of the instalment when she and Bob secured ownership of The Grange.
Eric decided to give the opportunity to Bernice and Bob as it was her "dream".
He offered them an extra day to raise the funds to match her sister's offer.
"We've beaten Nicola's offer enough to buy this champagne, and Viv, I think she would have approved," Bob told Bernice.
