Bev again tries to persuade Shelley that she's telling the truth about Charlie but to no avail. Shelley tells her she wants her out by the end of the day. Vera thinks Jack should take more exercise. Maria tells Nick that he must stay away from Leanne. Nick assures her that he will. Shelley apologises to Charlie for ever doubting him and explains that she's throwing Bev out. Charlie's relieved although quietly guilty. Norris is totally convinced that the ghost of Vera Lomax is lurking in the stockroom of The Kabin when a box falls on his head and the kettle fuses. He tells Rita that they need to call in an exorcist. Bev pleads with Charlie to tell Shelley the truth but he refuses. She slaps him, telling him that Shelley will one day see him for what he really is. Scheming Leanne apologises to Nick for her behaviour in the Rovers, saying she'd like them to be friends. Nick agrees. Sunita's shocked and hurt when Shelley tells her how Bev slept with Ciaran whilst they were engaged. Sunita tells Bev that she's twisted and malicious. Deirdre sees Bev in tears. Ciaran tries to apologise to Sunita for sleeping with Bev but she gives him short shrift. Upset Bev confides in Deirdre explaining how she's ruined everything with Shelley but Charlie is lying to her daughter. Jack's unimpressed when Vera buys him a second-hand exercise bike from Fred and sets him a goal of cycling 200 miles on it. Deirdre assures Bev that you can never break the mother-daughter bond. Dev gets the results of his medical which give him a clean bill of health and he tells Maya they can now set a wedding date. Tearful Bev gets her cases and leaves in a taxi for Bradford as Shelley and Charlie watch her go. Bev promises to come back when Charlie hurts her. Shelley's upset whilst Charlie's smug.
