Phelan taunts Gary by asking if there's any news of Anna. Adam suggests to Daniel that Tracy is encouraging Chesney. Robert is told that his removed testicle was cancerous and that it hasn't spread. He shows little relief at the news. Toyah is expecting her B&B guest to arrive. Eva has put her flat on the market. Leanne's online dating isn't going well and Toyah offers to set her up with Zack, a friend of hers. Still holed up in Roy's flat, Anna hears from Gary that Faye knows the full truth about her past with Phelan. She needs to find some proof that he was elsewhere when Seb had his accident and that his evidence was false. Ruby has claimed she is ill to be off with Hope. Tyrone and Fiz make up after their row. Anna is upset that Faye knows what Phelan did to her. The young girl promises her mum her full support. Daniel confronts Tracy but she guesses that he's recording her on his phone and humiliates him by laughing at him. While Anna hides in the yard, Gary gets Phelan out of the way by spinning him a yarn that Nicola's been rushed into some unknown hospital. Once they're gone, Anna uses a bolt-cutter on the chain to secure her escape and then enters the office. Adam tells Daniel to be bolder than Chesney. Michelle is concerned when Robert returns to work. Leanne agrees to go out with Zack. Anna searches desperately through the office paperwork and finds an appointment diary for the day in question with a phone number. Fiz gets a message to say that Cilla's had a bad fall and she needs to stay with her over Christmas. She asks Chesney to help Tyrone with the girls. After finding no one at Weatherfield General, Phelan guesses that he's on a wild goose chase. Anna rings the customer who confirms the date that Phelan was with her. Eileen notices the open yard gate and enters. Anna hears her and hits her on the head with the bolt-cutter as she enters the office. Daniel calls at No.5 and apologises to Chesney, lying in front of Sinead that he's getting professional help for his temper. Anna returns to the flat and tells Faye they have to flee.
