A row breaks out in the bistro as Beth demands an apology from Ken. He accuses her of reporting him for reward and Sinead gets upset as the families can’t get on. Faye swots up for her exams, not wanting to end up being a cleaner like her mum. Abi is given food for thought by her attitude. An uneasy peace descends on the party as the families stand apart, but with daggers drawn. As the cake is wheeled out, Tracy anticipates a food fight between Beth and Claudia. Kirk has an idea how to improve the mood when he spots a guitar lying in one of the booths. David refuses to intercede with Sarah on Gary’s behalf, saying she’s well rid of him. The spelling on the cake is incorrect. Tracy winds things up to start the food fight, winning a bet with Steve that Claudia will throw the first piece. Kirk suddenly appears with the guitar dressed as a rock star. Needing a tool of Phelan’s, Seb finds out that Gary is without a home or a job. He sympathises with him. Kirk surprises everyone with his guitar skills as he sings Your soul, my soul, our soles. Brian tells Alex that the loan repayment is sorted. Chesney finds a very subdued Gemma in the cafe, wanting to be alone. Seb has to persuade Jan not to step in and take the salon job off him. Eileen is outraged to discover that Jason’s tools have been stolen on Gary’s watch. Rita is horrified when she hears Rick Neelan’s name and that he’s the one who lent Alex money. After a plea from Faye, Brian agrees to tutor Abi. He sets her to work immediately. Kirk’s awful lyrics about Freshco provoke amusement but he gets a genuine round of applause. Seb fixes the washing machine and tries to chat up Alina inviting the reluctant girl to the Rovers. He inadvertently leaves his wallet behind. Rita tells David the link between Rick and Joe McIntyre’s death. Gemma tells Rita about the text and her doubts about staying with Chesney. Gary finds himself locked out of the yard. He has to borrow money off Brian. Sinead and Daniel think the party has been a disaster. Beth is grateful when Ken sticks up for Kirk as Steve and Tracy mock him and the two make up with a hug. Eileen admits she’s thrown Gary out of the yard and Jason has put it up for sale as Gary’s ruined the business. He realises he’s now lost everything.
