Ashley leaves Ken's house by the back door the morning after
Kelly invites him around there (when Ken is away on his training
course). They're both hoping that no one will see him leave and
find out they spent the night together, but Ashley runs straight
into Emily in the back lane! Ashley returns to see Kelly the following
night and after a quick shower to get rid of the butcher's shop
smell of tripe and liver, he makes himself comfortable in Ken's
dressing gown... and in walks Ken, home early from the course,
of course. Ken remains calm throughout but Kelly fears that he
will sack her. Instead, Ken tells Kelly to be discreet and not
to give the neighbours anything to gossip about (which they all
seem to be doing anyway).
Deirdre tells Gail that she is going to visit Tracy who is now
living in London, and goes to see Alec Gilroy at his travel agency
to book her coach travel. While she's there, Alec mentions that
he's looking for someone to work full time in the agency and Deirdre
jumps at the chance of working there for him. "I'm supposed
to ask whether you can use a VDU" he tells her "but
I'd much rather ask if you can tap dance".
The owners of Betty's Hotshot are in for a disappointment when
the trainer gets on the phone to Jack to tell them that the horse
has taken poorly and needs a vet's visit and an injection. Things
go from bad to worse when they find out the horse has colic. Jack
wants to put a collection box on the Rovers bar to help pay the
vets fees. Maud and Maureen put some money into the box when they
think it's for an animal welfare charity but soon ask for their
money back when they find out it's for the horse's vets fees.
Steve McDonald calls into the salon to see Fiona. He tells her
he wants a hair cut but soon starts harking back to the "golden
days" when they both shared the flat above Jim's cafe, telling
Fiona they were the happiest days of his life. He wants Fiona
to go upstairs to her new flat with him "just for a chat,
Fi" but she throws him out (good for her!).
Des has had enough of the McDonald clan and when he comes home
to find Andy and Anne along with Steve in his living room he tells
them he's sick of the lot of them and tells Andy he wants him
to move out. "What do you call a McDonald in a suit?"
Des asks them.... "the accused". Andy moves back in
Steve and Vicky are in court with Uncle Nick defending Vicky who
pleads guilty to all charges. And as you might expect, in an effort
to help himself and no one else, Steve pleads innocent. When they
leave the court room, Vicky tells Steve that she hates him and
wishes she had never met him. Steve also moves back in with Liz,
even though she distrusts him and knows he's telling lies about
Vicky to save his own skin.
Bill Webster and Kevin have plans to go to a football match on
Bank Holiday Monday. As Bill is leaving his flat, he bumps into
Jamie who is doing nothing in particular and asks if he can come
along to the match. Bill isn't keen but ends up taking him along
anyway. Jamie is disappointed when he finds out it's not a proper
match they are going to see but a local team and only says thanks
to Bill when prompted by Tricia back at the flat when Bill drops
Derek has a problem with his car, and when he asks Kevin if he
can fit him in that day Kevin says it's unlikely as he has all
of Don's friends' taxi-cabs to service. When Don finds out, he
over-rides Kevin's decision and tells Derek his car can be done
immediately. Don does a little bit of work at the garage but Kevin
and Don just aren't seeing eye to eye and have an argument. Kevin
walks out on Don, accusing him of watching over Kevin like a hawk.
Don tells Kevin he isn't spying, he just wants to learn the trade
properly and Kevin comes back in to the garage to work. Kevin
isn't a happy chap though, and tells Gail, who tells Sally, who
tells Kevin off for bad mouthing Don in public.
