Derek is disappointed in Mavis for losing control. Des doesn't know what to make of her allegation. Tracy lets the twins transmit from Ken's flat and in return they let her do some announcing. Des tries to please Steph. She forces herself to be nice to him. Andy finds a report that Ken has done on him and is annoyed at its reference to his stupid sense of humour. Tracy tells them off for snooping around. The Gilroys and Vicky return from Torquay. Bet worries that Vicky is bottling her emotions as she was all smiles on holiday. Andy writes an adventure series for 'Just Can't Wait' Radio. Alec manages to break Vicky down by telling her that he's cried for Sandra. They share their memories of her. Steph arranges to meet Simon for lunch but has to stand him up when Des turns up at the store to take her out. Emily feels weak for taking Percy back. Jim winds Mavis up when she complains to him about the radio show, pretending he's going to beat sense into the twins. Steve and Andy start their new show: "Captain Kenny the Android Warrior of Weatherfield with his Mechanical Sheep, Baaa-low". Tracy is annoyed at first but joins in when the twins win her over. Simon tells Steph that he's being sent to Swansea for a week. Liz and Jim hear the twins' broadcast. Jim thinks it's hysterical but Liz is furious. Vicky tells the Gilroys it's time for her to go home.
