Jim shows contempt for Audrey. Mavis is hysterical that she's going to be arrested as one of Steve's accomplices for buying a stolen radio from him. Steve refuses to tell the police where he got the radios. Mike is delighted to hear that Alma and Ken's Christmas plans have fallen through. Vicky is upset that she didn't get to go on holiday. Reg tells Curly to monitor Percy. Andy hates to see Liz crying and gives her the names of Steve's crooked mates - Carl Redfern, Stuart Cunliffe, Scott Mason, Micky Robinson and Craig Wilson. Tracy helps Deirdre at the shop for something to do. Mike learns from them that Ken is spending Christmas at No.1 leaving Alma on her own. Liz gives the names to the police. Steve is horrified and tells his parents that the lads are sure to get him. Santa Percy upsets the children when he reacts to a boy producing a long Christmas list by admonishing his mother for spending too much on her son. Audrey tells Mavis that she probably has nothing to worry about as she bought the radio in good faith. The "probably" only upsets Mavis more. Carl Redfern threatens to kill Steve when they pass each other at the station. DC Chapman thinks Steve must have known the radios were stolen as they were so cheap. He refuses to name the lad he got them from. Ivy invites the Platts to No.5 for Christmas dinner. Curly doesn't report Percy's behaviour to Reg but Reg already knows. Steve is charged with handling stolen goods.
