Ena confronts Annie in the Rovers over the accusations laid at Betty's door. She tells Annie that there are rumours going round Weatherfield that Annie sacked Betty for dipping into the till. Annie demands to know who is the source of the rumours, and Ena informs her that the gossip is emanating from Nellie Harvey's lair, the Laughing Donkey. Annie is annoyed to realise that her own idle gossip with Nellie has been made public. Annie apologises to Betty but Betty isn't satisfied. Ethel Platt warns Auntie Edie that Mavis may marry Derek. Edie assures her she'll put a stop to it. Hilda holds a séance with Bet, Elsie, Gail and Suzie. Hilda goes into a trance and the table collapses. Bet tells Betty that Nellie has been talking about her honesty. Mavis tells Edie she wants to live her own life and she may have to go into a home. Betty confronts Annie and tells her that she's going to sue her for defamation of character.
