It’s the day of reckoning for Steve and Becky. JD takes Michelle for lunch and she is surprised when he moves in for a kiss. Shocked, she pushes him away and JD explains how Steve had told him that their relationship was over and actively encouraged him to make a move on her.

A furious Michelle heads back to the pub and demands some answers from Steve, who finally tells her that he doesn’t love her anymore – omitting to tell her that he has fallen in love with Becky.

But later, during a heated row with Steve over Liz, Lloyd gets sick of Steve’s double standards and blurts out the whole sordid story to Michelle.

Molly and Tyrone are on cloud nine as they unwrap their wedding presents but are concerned when they can’t find the tickets for the honeymoon from Kevin and Sally. It doesn’t take long for Tyrone to work out that his low-life mother Jackie has stolen them and has done a runner.

Tina is devastated when she discovers that her dad has been living in his lock up – she demands to know the truth about his financial situation.

Becky is stunned to discover that not only has Steve dumped Michelle, but Jason has started divorce proceedings from Sarah. From being everyone’s second choice, she finally seems to have jumped up the charts to number one.
