Norris and Helen chat over a coffee. They discuss Rita's lack of skill when it comes to interior design. Rita seethes in anger in the cupboard as she overhears. Sally tells Kevin he can do the cooking since he's invited Craig for tea. The police call at the Platts' house. Gail's relieved they're taking her seriously and they take the card away for tests. Gail suggests Phil is behind the whole thing. Kelly's upset with Lloyd for thinking she was the thief but starts to thaw towards him. Helen suggests to Norris they could go on a theatre weekend trip to London together but Norris suddenly gets cold feet and suggests she leaves. As he ushers her out the hall cupboard door swings open and they're horrified to see Rita standing there. Craig arrives at the Websters' house armed with flowers and a bottle of wine. Sally can't help feeling touched. Rita apologises to Norris for spying on him. Norris admits that dating isn't for him as he's not after a physical relationship and really he just misses Emily. Jason changes the locks at the Platts' and Gail buy them all a fish and chip supper. Bev and Fred agree to set a wedding date. Claire and Ashley plan to turn Fred's bedroom into a nursery for the new baby. David complains he's got salt into the paper cut on his finger.
