Maria's furious when Chris fails to pick Liam up from nursery as they'd agreed. Chris apologises saying that he's no memory of the arrangement. Chris is secretly worried. Becky enjoys ruining Steve's evening by announcing to Beth that she is Steve's wife. A row breaks out and Nick asks Steve to leave. Nick gives Becky a formal warning. Realising their date was a mistake, Steve and Beth agree to go their separate ways. David boasts to Becky that Social Services have agreed to Max's first access visit and that soon he'll be living with them. Becky's gutted. Amber's surprised when Tyrone enters the Corner Shop. She asks him if he's recovered from his hospital emergency. Realising that Tommy's told more lies, Tyrone tries to cover for his mate but Amber sees straight through him. Audrey tells David that she's having Mondays off in future and leaving him in charge of the salon. David's thrilled, whilst Gail thinks that she's mad. Tommy flirts with Tina and thanks her for such a great meal. However the mood is shattered when Amber storms into No.9 and explains how Tommy's been two-timing them and told them both a pack of lies. Tina dumps the unwashed dishes on the floor and tells Tommy he can clear up. At the end of their evening shift, Nick tells Becky that although it was fun he's calling an end to their relationship as it's obvious that she's still in love with Steve. Becky admits he's right and tells him it's best if she gives up her job at the bistro too.
