Steve and Andy are furious that Jim didn't have the guts to tell Liz about him and Fiona and that she had to hear it from Alan. Andy tells Jim that he disgusts him for kicking Liz when she's down. Liz calls Fiona a slut for leading on both Jim and Steve. When the estate agent sends a buyer, Mr Stowe, round to view the corner shop, Fred introduces himself as the owner's husband and shows him around in Maud's absence, pointing out all its shortcomings and scaring the buyer off. Steve tells Jim that he is going to dissolve the partnership as he doesn't want to work with him any more. Liz breaks down in the Rovers and tells everyone that Jim slept with Fiona and then used her. She tells Jim that she hopes he rots in hell. Andy tells Fiona he's ashamed of his family and apologises to her for them. He tells her that she's a great girl and deserves some happiness. Leanne and Nick discover Fred has forgotten to lock the door at No.4. They go in and realise they could use the empty house as a love nest. Andy packs his bags and leaves the Street and Weatherfield, determined to forget all about his family and make a new life in Barcelona. Jon is surprised when Deirdre asks him to marry her.
