Zoe hates the Malletts for being a happy couple. She becomes hysterical when Ashley tries to get her to see a doctor. The barmaids tell Vera they object to being mauled by "Lusty Jack". Vera tries to explain that Jack isn't responsible for his actions but they don't care. Steve gets upset when Fiona suggests he's hiding something about Jim's accident. Vera struggles to cope when "Lusty Jack" thinks his horses have been stolen from the stables at the back of the Rovers. Jack enjoys himself groping the staff and spending the afternoon at the bookies. Natalie accuses Des of using her to make Samantha jealous but he assures her that he's only with her because he likes her. When Zoe cuts her hair off, Ashley calls in a doctor who sections her and takes her to hospital. Zoe tells Ashley that she never wants to see him again. Ashley feels he's let her down. Leanne is appalled when Nick asks her to send Darren a photo of herself to lead him on. Steve tells Fiona he had a fight with Jim and pushed him off the scaffolding. He breaks down in tears.
