Fred gives Ashley and Claire tickets to Paris as an engagement present. Fiz sets Maria and Tyrone up on a blind date to try to get them back together. Roy's worried when Charlie tells him that the café needs rewiring. As excitable Tracy prepares for their holiday, she tells Ciaran that they'll need a bigger place when she and Amy move in. Ciaran's flattered by her commitment and thinks that she really must love him. Sunita asks Frankie to tell Maya to stay away from them but she refuses. When Claire finally tells her mum that she and Ashley are engaged, Yvonne leaves accusing Claire of throwing her life away. Claire's very upset, saying that if she's forced to choose she'll choose Ashley and not her mum. Tyrone and Maria meet for lunch and have a lovely time. Later they stand on the balcony of the builder's yard and pretend they're back up Blackpool Tower. Penny apologises to Ciaran for being angry with him and hugs him saying that she knows he did his best. Ciaran's guilt-ridden and suddenly blurts out the truth. He explains how he got £60,000 for McCarthy's and not £30,000. Furious Penny takes the money and leaves. Tracy tells Ken, Deirdre and Blanche what she thinks of them and explains that she's moving in with Ciaran. He tells Tracy that he came clean with Penny and has returned all her money but he's glad that they've still got each other. He's shocked to the core when Tracy tells him that without the money he's nothing and she's never loved him. Ciaran's gutted.
