Liz doesn't think that Vicky and Steve will be happy together but Jim is impressed by his catch. Fiona tries to convince herself there's no point in being upset over Steve and Vicky as she did not want him. She feels that Vicky doesn't know what she's letting herself in for. Bet is full of reasons why Vicky should not marry Steve and summons Alec from Southampton. Vicky is upset by her lack of support and considers moving out of the Rovers. Steve suggests that instead of running away they could get married quickly. She wants a white wedding in church but sees the sense on a quick one. Audrey is delighted when Brian Bowes meets her and takes her out for lunch. He tells her that he knows Harry Potts and his girlfriend Connie Holroyd are responsible for the missing mayoral fund. Alec arrives at the Rovers to sort Vicky out. He is uneasy being back and Bet is equally uneasy having him back. He blames Bet for not alerting him to what was going on sooner. Bet tells him that she is certain Steve is after Vicky's money. Vicky and Steve arrange to get married in a couple of days. Andy agrees to be their best man. Rather than face Alec they book into a hotel until they're married. Mike delights in telling Ken that he's talked to Deirdre and that if he's still interested in No.1 he can have it. Ken is surprised. Alec and Bet are shocked when Jim and Liz tell them the wedding is in a couple of days.
