Sunita reassures Karl that together they can make it work. Karl's not convinced. Michelle kicks hung-over Ryan off the sofa and reminds him that he's due at work. Fiz, Katy, Gary and Izzy decide to organise a party for Chesney's 18th birthday. Sunita enters The Kabin to be met by hostile Leanne. Sunita defiantly tells her that Karl has moved in and they're in love. Leanne's scathing. When Leanne delivers the news, Stella puts on a brave face and insists that she's fine. Eva's concerned for her. Rob makes the factory girls stay behind to do a bit of overtime. Gary's not happy. Eileen finds Ryan asleep on the switch. She's astounded when Steve covers up for him in front of Michelle. At Maria's suggestion, Marcus arranges a date with Aiden. They meet in the Rovers before heading into town. Sean witnesses their meeting and is clearly upset. Gary corners Rob in the gents toilets at the Rovers and tells him not to overwork Izzy as she's pregnant. Upon leaving the pub, Dev spies Karl, Sunita and the twins arriving back at No.7 looking cosy. He enters the house and going berserk, he launches himself at Karl, punching him in the jaw. After failing to reach Dev on his mobile, Lloyd discovers him in the corner shop - drinking whisky, surrounded by painkillers and crying to himself. Dev tells Lloyd that he's got nothing to live for.
