PlotEdit

Derek goes to Bedford; his first night apart from Mavis since they got married. Alf declares war on Patel when customers ask about the new shop. Eddie fears Marie Lancaster will try to snatch Jamie. Audrey learns from Maurice Jones that he has not sold the shop to anyone and he was pushing Alf to buy it. Derek tries to contact Mavis or Victor by phone and when he fails he decides to return to Weatherfield. Audrey tries to put Alf straight about the shop but he has convinced himself the rumours are true. She discovers Jack was lying and makes him apologise to Alf by threatening to tell people the beer at the Rovers is watered down. Alf is relieved and tells Audrey they can go ahead and buy 5 Grasmere Drive. Tina hides Jamie at the Rovers, much to Alec's horror. Victor calls on Mavis and plays on her sympathy to get her to invite him up to the flat. There, he tries to cure her headache by using reflexology. Derek walks in on Victor massaging Mavis's foot.
