Fred tells Rita and Norris that Lillian Spencer has left and that the drinks are on him. Doreen is driving Ashley mad as she criticises his diet and the state of the garden. Richard hands Rita some investment leaflets to look through. Norris tries to warn her away from Richard but Rita refuses to listen. Archie calls round at No.1 to get his dance records back from Blanche. He sees her lifeless body through the letterbox and shoulder-charges the front door down. Norris calls an ambulance. She's still alive but barely conscious. Peter goes with Blanche in the ambulance. Eileen drags Sally to the Rovers for a belated birthday drink. Karen forces Steve to look round some trendy furniture shops in town. She is particularly taken with a really expensive shop called Elevation. Sally gets home to find that Kevin and the girls have planned a surprise birthday tea for her. She is very touched. Blanche is in hospital as she's got a nasty graze on her head and a sprained ankle. Kevin suggests to Sally that they should get back together. Sally is furious thinking that the cake and balloons were just an excuse to wheedle his way back in. Fred gives Shelley the job of temporary manageress while he goes away on holiday - Geena is furious.
