- The Granada Plus repeat of this episode on 22nd July 2004 was edited for timing reasons, with the following cuts made to Part Two: an entire scene of 1'03" in 13 Coronation Street where Sally Webster gives Kevin a massage but feels uncomfortable as he sings Joe Broughton's praises; the following scene of 39" where Audrey Roberts arrives home to find a note from Alf saying he has gone to the pub; and the first 1'05" of the following scene in the Rovers, where Alf gloats to Betty Turpin about Audrey returning to an empty house, and a miserable Angie Freeman is rude to Raquel Wolstenhulme and Curly Watts. The ITV3 repeat on 26th September 2019 contained the same edits.
