Steph demands Jenny tell Mark the truth her about Robert Weston before he tells Des. Curly is distraught at the thought of Kimberley transferring to another Bettabuy branch. He asks Reg to lose her transfer request in internal post. Reg refuses. Mark tells Des that Steph has a fella. Des thinks he's lying and goes for him in the Rovers. Mavis believes that Angela wants Derek back but Emily makes her see that Derek wouldn't betray her. Des confronts Steph at the perfume counter, where Steph makes Jenny tell him that Robert was with her, not Steph. Des tells Jenny to put everyone straight, starting with Mark, as he doesn't want people thinking that Steph is being unfaithful. Mavis decides to try and accept Derek working with Angela but changes her mind when she finds out he's with Angela on a late lunch. Jenny tells Angie that Robert is married. Des realises that Jenny isn't going to tell Mark and asks Kevin to do so. Kevin works for himself at the garage again. Des lets Mark know that Kevin has something to say to him. Reg lets slip to Mark about Kevin repairing his car as a foreigner. Derek tells Mavis he was only with Angela for half an hour and was late back to the office as he was in his car going through the accounts. He's annoyed that Mavis doesn't trust him. Mark catches Kevin locking up the garage. Kevin admits he's been doing foreigners. When Mark rows with Kevin, Kevin tells him that he should be keeping an eye on Jenny.
