Vicky wants to stay in Handforth but Bet takes her back to the Rovers to talk to the Ardens' executor, Nicholas Wilding. The Tilsleys join the Barnes' on the canal. Steve enjoys being a DJ on 'Just Can't Wait' Radio. Ken returns a day early and hears 'The Adventures of Capt Kenny Baaa-low' on the taxi radio. He is amused. Steph refuses to help with the boat. Ken interrupts the broadcast and throws the twins out of his flat. Vicky's uncle Nick tells the Gilroys that Vicky has been well provided for in the wills. The money is to be kept in trust until she is eighteen so she can stay on at boarding school. Alec decides to apply to be Vicky's legal guardian but Vicky isn't sure if that's what she wants. Ken is annoyed with Tracy for using his flat. Tracy is relieved when Ken doesn't tell Deirdre about the radio. Sarah Louise doesn't like the boat. Steph rows with Des, accusing him of being selfish and obsessed with the boat. Tracy goes to France. Gail and Martin feel in the way with the Barnes' and don't enjoy the day. Steph admits to Des that she's having an affair but asks him not to make a fuss in front of the Tilsleys. As they row, Gail gathers the children and gets Martin to get them a taxi. Vicky tells Alec that she's going to live with her friend Belinda Johnson and her family. She wants to live with people she knows. Steph leaves with the Tilsleys.
