Joanne comes down the stairs sheepishly at the Barlows' house after spending the night with Adam. She is confronted with Ken, Deirdre and Blanche at the breakfast table and she makes a sharp exit. Bev goes to the Café to invite Steve, Roy and Hayley to Shelley's leaving party. Adam gets an earful from the Barlows about Joanne's clothes being all over the house. Tracy goes to tell Charlie that they are both going to Shelley's party. It's Danny and Frankie's twentieth wedding anniversary and they have a drink together. Liz has her first night as manageress at the Rovers. Fred goes to tell everyone in the pub that Claire is in labour however it is just a false alarm. Frankie tells Deirdre that Danny will drop Leanne for her and that all she has to do is ask. Bev confronts Shelley about sleeping with Charlie.
