Karen's furious as Steve fusses over Amy. She threatens to phone social services but Steve stops her pointing out that they wouldn't be interested as Amy's with her father. Shelley's put-out when Fred introduces Violet Wilson, a new barmaid to the Rovers. Les is still in the doghouse with Cilla. He buys her a fake gold necklace to try and appease her but it gives her a rash. When Tracy refuses to collect Amy saying that she's going into town, Karen throws Amy's dirty nappy after her. Charlie's annoyed that Shelley wouldn't take him back and tells Jason he may pack up the business and leave. Jason's worried about his job. Karen's pleased despite herself, when Sarah compliments her on how good with Amy she is. Steve tries to return Amy to Tracy but Tracy wriggles out of it and Steve's left with Amy for another night. He lies to Karen saying that he couldn't find Tracy. Jason and Violet spot each other in the Rovers and are immediately attracted. Despondent Ciaran tells Tracy that he's sold the lease to the restaurant for £60,000. Charlie continues to blame Shelley's mistrust for the failure of their relationship. Shelley crumbles and agrees they should give it another go.
