  • TV Times synopsis: Vera tries to play peacemaker between Andrea and Terry, but she doesn't bargain for Connie Clayton's reaction.
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 14,250,000 viewers (5th place). This was the first week in which both episodes of Coronation Street gained lower ratings than an episode of EastEnders although the BARB figures for the latter programme combined the audiences of both the mid-week and Sunday omnibus of the episodes to produce one figure. In addition, this episode of Coronation Street was shown on a Bank Holiday Monday which traditionally led to the programme gaining a lower viewing figure than normal.
