Roy (David Nielson) is not amused when he finds Becky (Katherine Kelly) serving Jason (Ryan Thomas) outside the cafe – despite him being barred. He can’t understand Becky’s behaviour after the way Jason treated her but Becky is so thrilled that Jason is showing an interest that she ignores Roy’s fatherly concerns and sees it as interfering.
Audrey (Sue Nicholls) is nervous at the thought of meeting Ted (Michael Byrne) but the years soon melt away and they are chatting like the old days. But Audrey knows she has to tell Ted the truth about Gail (Helen Worth). How will he react when he discovers he has a 50-year-old daughter?
Janice (Vicky Entwistle) is increasingly worried about the mess that Leanne (Jane Danson) has got herself into this time. She knows she must have had something to do with the fire and Leanne has no choice but to confess to her stepmum. But Leanne seems more concerned with the fact that she won’t now get the insurance pay out than the more serious consequences of her actions.
