Nick is out obsessively jogging again. David stops him and asks him about his appointment. He realises that he still hasn't told Carla and threatens to do so himself. As Michelle busies herself planning Carla’s wedding, Aidan tells her that Steve has been complaining that they’ve spent little time together since his return. He suggests that she cut him some slack but she rejects his advice. Even though it's a bank holiday, Jason wants to work. Eileen and Phelan try to persuade him to take things easier. Carla has got on Gail's good side by telling her they're setting up a special room for her in Devon for when she comes to stay. She tells Nick that nothing is going to stop their wedding. Todd makes it clear to Phelan that he still doesn't trust him. Sally objects when the Nazirs wants to use their new lawnmower as she had planned some quiet time in the garden. Yasmeen winds her up by planning an impromptu barbecue. The Platts take the children to a petting zoo. Gail asks Carla to call round for a present she has for her. Nick attends his appointment with the consultant and admits he’s scared he might lash out at someone again. The consultant recommends an MRI scan and makes an appointment for one or two days’ time. He points out that given his brain injury, it’s impossible to give an exact diagnosis. Phelan persuades Jason to accompany him to the County match. Sophie feels at a loose end. Yasmeen enjoys inviting Cathy, Kevin and Sophie to the barbecue in front of Sally. Gail presents Carla with a photo album to welcome her to the family. Carla is touched. As Sophie heads out of the café, she bumps into Kate and Caz coming in. Caz yelps, making out Sophie caught her injured ankle. Sophie’s incensed and tells Kevin she never touched it and she reckons she’s playing on her injury in an attempt to hang on to Kate. Carla tells Nick she’s never been happier and he forces himself to hide his anxiety, though he lets slip that David might have talked to her about something. Liz confronts Michelle and demands to know if the reason she’s avoiding Steve is because of Will.
