PlotEdit

Sheila Crossley writes to the Bishops to say that she's coming to stay with them as Neil and Danny have gone off together on a father-son fishing trip. Giving them little notice, she drives up from Sheffield that day. Ernie isn't happy about the set-up as he barely knows her. Granny wants the shop to be called "M and I Hopkins" and asks Ray to repaint the sign over the premises but Vera wants "V and M Hopkins". Rita doesn't tell Len that she's finished with Jimmy Graham. Ray starts picking on Deirdre again when Billy goes touring car auctions. The Ogdens return by train and sneak into No.13 through the back, making sure that nobody sees them. Jerry is shocked to hear that Sheila is on her way up. The Ogdens come into the Rovers in their cycling gear, not knowing that all the regulars have heard from Ray that they didn't go on their bike. No one lets on. Sheila arrives, planning to stay for a week. Idris backs Vera over the shop sign. Mavis starts to feel uncomfortable about Shelia's presence in the area when she hears of hers and Jerry's past from Hilda. Jerry is wary of Sheila when she comes into the Rovers to catch up with everyone. Stan hears from Syd Greaves that the tandem was delivered back to the Street and left with someone but he doesn't know who. Ray has kept the tandem at the Builder's Yard and sprays the black paint white in an effort to set the Ogdens up.
