Steve promises Vicky that he'll stay on the straight and narrow. Ken finds the police looking for Tricia. They explain that, in her absence from court, she's been sent to prison for a week by the magistrates and, if she isn't found, it could be longer. Ken fetches her from the Rovers. When she sees the police, Tricia tells Ken that he's a scumbag of a snitch. She is taken to prison for non-payment of her TV licence fine and for not attending court. Jamie is taken into care. Brian tells Denise that he loves her and can't bear the thought of her marrying Ken. He asks her to come away with him and live with him. Ken walks in on Brian telling Denise that he and Alison are finished. Ken asks Brian to stop upsetting Denise and to keep her out of his marriage problems. Denise is stunned when Brian explains that he can't as she is his lover. Ken hits Brian and throws him out. Denise swears the affair is over but Ken throws her out, telling her if she doesn't go he'll kill her. He refuses to let her take Daniel.
