Steve tries to cover up but Maxine insists that Fiona is told the truth. Fiona throws Maxine out and then tells Steve they're finished; she's had enough of his lies and explanations. Rita arranges for a builder to sort out the door. When the police search for Curly, Emily Spider and Alma cover for him. Liz and Jim are amazed that Steve has blown his chances with Fiona by sleeping with Maxine. Jim warns him that he'll soon feel disgusted with himself. Rita is annoyed when the neighbours gossip about her and Alec. Alec hopes Audrey will sort things out at the Council so he can get a late opening licence but she tells him that she's not mixing business with pleasure. Fiona refuses to listen to Steve. He clears his stuff out of the flat. Sally tells Kevin she's missing the girls and begs him to let her see them. She is stunned when he tells her that he doesn't want her anywhere near them. Alma breaks down under police questioning and admits that Curly has run away. Jim agrees to let Steve stay at No.11. He packs his things and leaves the flat.
