It’s a bad day for Molly (Vicky Binns) and Tyrone (Alan Halsall). Aunty Pam (Kate Antony) is still in hospital following the explosion but it is Tyrone who gets it in the neck from Molly who is convinced he must have known about the bio oil scam all along. By the end of the day it looks like he might finally have convinced Molly he had nothing to do with it and he is about to pop the question when a very unwelcome face from the past turns up.

Liz (Beverly Callard) and Lloyd (Craig Charles) are already fed up with having to meet in secret but neither of them want to break the news of their relationship to Steve (Simon Gregson) so they agree to wait for the right moment to come along – whenever that may be.

Peter (Chris Gascoyne) has overslept after downing half a bottle of whisky last night and Ken’s waiting to take Simon (Alexander Bain) out. Ken (William Roache) and Deirdre (Anne Kirkbride) are suspicious of his reasons for being late but Ken is determined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Michelle (Kym Marsh) is planning a trip to Ireland for her and Steve but he’s not too keen. Becky’s (Katherine Kelly) not too taken with the idea either but has to put a brave face on it when Michelle tells her all about it.

Things have gone well between Tara (Ayesha Dharker)and Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) so Amber (Nikki Patel) is disappointed when Tara reveals she is going to Scotland. When Tara’s heating breaks down Amber hatches a plan to try and get her to stay but it backfires spectacularly.

This episode is written by Peter Whalley, produced by Kim Crowther and directed by Kay Patrick.
