Audrey offers to buy a turkey for Christmas dinner at No.8. Gail doesn't want to cook Christmas dinner as no one will help. With Max wanting David to come to his nativity, Kylie threatens not to go. Carla is surprised Peter hasn't told Tracy about Rob and Tina's kiss. Roy is anxious about his driving test and Mary's stories about her disastrous attempts don't help. Audrey fears neither David nor Kylie will go to the nativity and Max will be upset. Carla gets out of going by collecting Deirdre from the airport as she returns from Canada. Kylie gets drunk in the Rovers. Tina throws her out. At Bessie Street School, Nick refuses to speak to David. Taking Carla's place, Tina arrives and warns David that Kylie is in a bad state. Dennis and the band arrive at the bistro to set up. Dennis is confident the show will be a success. Roy takes his driving test. Peter asks Tina what's going on between her and Rob. She says it's nothing to do with him. Kylie staggers in late and talks throughout the performance. David is embarrassed, while Gail urges him to get rid of her. Pat Phelan calls Owen and invites him and Gary for drinks to discuss business. Rita keeps a close eye on Dennis and Gloria as they seem to be hitting it off. A teacher tells Kylie to leave. She staggers up to the stage and tells Max that he's going with her.
