The refurbishments at the Rovers Return Inn are finished . Bet thinks it's fantastic. Gail wants to talk to Brian to discuss the future but as far as he's concerned she's gone too far. Audrey tells Brian that he's a hypocrite as he's been unfaithful. The brewery asks Bet to get a celebrity to open the new pub. Mavis is pleased when Derek calls on her. When Jack crawls to Bet, she gives him his job back. Gail swears to Brian she didn't plan to be unfaithful, she only wanted some excitement. He is disgusted to find she slept with Ian Latimer in their bed whilst Nicky was in the house. Ivy calls on the Tilsleys to celebrate but finds Brian leaving with his bags. Bet asks Hilda to perform the opening ceremony at the Rovers as she's worked there for twenty-two years, the longest of anyone.
