Eileen tells Phelan that she loves him and still wants to marry him. He asks her to bring Andy and Steph over to see him to allow him to thank them for saving his life. Bethany isn't bothered about going to the Christmas market with Sarah, Gary and Izzy so stays in with Gail instead. Mary tells Jude that he's her son. He's stunned by the news and informs his twin, causing Mary to realise her mistake. Gail holds back the tears as she looks over the haul of presents she bought for Michael. Bethany hugs her.

The police question Kevin again in light of Phelan's statement causing Anna to stick up for him. Chesney, Sinead, Todd, Billy and David spend the evening a busy club.

After Shona leaves to meet her friend, David realises his wallet is gone. Sarah books tickets to a gig in Leeds for her, Bethany, Gary and Faye. Bethany is thrilled.
