It's the morning after the cellar prank and Steve is checking on Dan at the top of the cellar stairs. There is no reply and the light is off. Michelle comes in and demands to know what he is doing. Steve fobs her off with a rat story to stop her from going down the cellar, so she sets off to buy some rat poison. Ryan catches Steve shouting down the cellar to a very quiet Dan. Steve sets off down the cellar but finds Dan crumpled on the floor clearly not well. An ambulance is called and he is rushed to hospital. He has an emergency operation for a haemorrhaged spleen. Once Dan wakes up he tells Leanne and Harry that Steve knew he was injured. Steve is later arrested on suspicion of assault and unlawful imprisonment. Jason is still avoiding Becky. When Becky asks what Jason is up to tonight, he makes up excuses saying he is going to Gail's house to visit David and then to spend time with his mum. Becky jokingly says he can't escape him. Later on Jason rejects Becky's calls, unaware that she has cooked a nice meal for them both. Out on the Street she speaks to David, who reveals that Jason has not even been round. When she eventually sees Jason he tells her David seemed okay, Becky is clearly hurt. Jerry returns home from hospital to a full house including Teresa to his surprise. Mel is clearly not happy with her presence and constantly drops hints about her leaving. Teresa manages to persuade Jerry to let her stop on the sofa, much to Mel's dismay. Vernon knows something is not right with Liz with her over-enthusiastic behaviour. Gail and Audrey are still arguing over David's job and Tina lands herself a job at the kebab shop.
