Raquel and Bet are thrilled for Betty when she breaks the news of her engagement. Bet cracks open the champagne. Stella Rigby alerts Bet to the news in the Gazette that the brewery are selling six pubs, including theirs. Vera tries to act cultured when Gary and Judy Mallett view No.9. Bet is furious that the brewery haven't contacted her and thinks they've done a deal behind her back. The Malletts are very interested in No.9 and Vera feels they're certain to buy it. Steph is annoyed when Chris Fox tracks her down and tells her that he's got a new job in Germany and he wants her to start again with him. He offers her support for their child but she tells him that their relationship will never work. Steve and Vicky return from honeymoon and Bet is put out when they book into a hotel rather than stay at the Rovers.
