PlotEdit

Mike looks up some of his old machinists to see if they want to work for him again. Jack is alarmed when Tricia asks him if she can be the Rovers cleaner. To get rid of her, Jack tells her that he'll ask Vera but doesn't as he fears husband Carl will be around. Vera interviews Joyce for the cleaning job. Joyce promises to be confidential and a good cleaner and is taken on, to Jack's relief. Don tells Jack that the exorcism was fake. Jack doesn't mind as it's bringing trade in. Tricia is furious to discover that Jack never told Vera that she wanted the job and that it's now gone. She tells him that she's going to tell Carl he's been pestering her. Jack has T-shirts made saying "Come & try our Spirits". He gets the staff to wear them. Alma considers telling Mike all about her feelings for Stephen but Gail advises her not to. Jack is alarmed when Josie puts Vera straight about the fake exorcism. She accuses Jack of exploiting Ivy to bring in the customers and throws a pint at him. Anne refuses to spend the night with Andy after an evening with his parents. She tells him that she will one day, when she's ready.
