Curly asks Angie to design the Bettabuy float for the Weatherfield Carnival. Phyllis is upset to hear that Des has left Steph. Steph tells Simon Beatty that Des knows about them. She is thrilled when he tells her to move into his flat but feels that she can't leave without seeing Des. The Johnsons tell Alec that they haven't thought about having Vicky living with them. They tell Alec they're willing to help but aren't keen to take her on. Des contacts Steph and asks her to meet him. Vicky discovers that the Johnsons have visited in her absence and is furious. She tells them that she doesn't want them or the Rovers. Steph finds Des drunk with the boat. When she tells him that they are definitely finished, he sets light to the boat as a symbolic gesture.
