Plot

Despondent Tyrone leaves a message for Kirsty begging her to return home. His misery is compounded when a cot is delivered for the new baby. Katy suggests to Chesney that they should throw a modest christening for Joseph. Ryan needs more money for drugs. He asks Steve for an advance on his wages so that he can buy a new amplifier. Steve promises to see what he can do. Hayley and Norris are invited to replace an indisposed couple in a dance contest tomorrow night, clashing with the Elgar concert in Malvern. Tyrone tells Rob that Kirsty's taking it easy at home and won't be at work for a while. Emily lends Norris a pair of Ernest's dancing shoes for the contest. Tracy's still unwell but is grateful when Emily finds her paid work arranging flowers at her church. Chesney's van is playing up so he drops it in at the garage. Kevin's irked when Tyrone goes AWOL. Emily's angry to find Tracy asleep at home when she should have been at the church. Her fury increases upon discovering that Tracy has sabotaged Ernest's shoes, thinking they were Norris's. Emily accuses Tracy of being lazy and feckless and orders her to move out of No.3. Tracy kicks herself. Ken's smug to see Emily throwing Tracy out. He offers to take Amy in but Tracy refuses. Beth invites Tracy and Amy to move into the flat with her and Craig. Underwhelmed, Tracy has no choice but to accept. Roy's willing to cancel his trip to Malvern to support Hayley in the contest but she insists he must go without her. Mary's thrilled that she'll have Roy to herself. Chesney demands to know why his van hasn't been looked at. Tense Tyrone flies at him and has to be hauled off by Kevin and Tommy. Tina steps in and follows him home. Ryan's thwarted when Steve gives him his old amplifier instead of money. Tyrone admits to Tina that Kirsty's left him. She's sympathetic but thinks it might be for the best. Tyrone angrily tells her to get out before kicking the new cot to pieces and dissolving into tears.

Notable dialogue

Emily Bishop (to Tracy McDonald): "It's not about the shoes, it's about you thinking that the world owes you a living... that you can do anything you like, regardless of the consequences for anyone else. You are a lazy, feckless, self-centred, spiteful, spoilt little brat!"
Norris Cole: "I second that."
Tracy McDonald: "Oh, butt out, twinkle toes!"
