Realising there isn't a window cleaner in the area, Gary decides to start up a round. Judy isn't keen on the idea as she doesn't want to give up her freedom at the Rovers and someone needs to look after the twins. Les is furious when he discovers that Janice borrowed money from the Tilsleys. Miranda Peters tells Nick that she had an abortion and has never regretted it. She advises him to talk Leanne round and afterwards tell people she miscarried. Deirdre is embarrassed when the factory girls find out about Ken and her. She is stung when Mike finds the news amusing. Roy and Hayley are thrilled when Jessica Lundy agrees to marry them. Curly has Tyrone thrown out of Freshco's when he turns up. Tyrone says he's starving and is desperate but Curly refuses to believe him. Nick asks Martin how to get an abortion. Martin is sad that he's even thinking of it. Nick tells him how frightened parenthood makes him feel and how he doesn't want his life to be ruined. Tyrone sleeps rough near the bins at Freshco's. Judy warms to the idea of Gary cleaning windows when he suggests he only works when she isn't at the Rovers. She likes the idea as it means she doesn't have to give up her job. Nick is relieved when Leanne tells him that she will have an abortion. He promises her that she won't regret the decision.
