Roy wants Gail as his best man but Hayley insists that he chooses a man for the job as per tradition so he asks Martin. Alison is furious when she discovers Kevin has been back all weekend but hasn't called her. Martin guesses that Leanne has had an abortion and tells Nick it's nothing to be ashamed of. Kevin discovers someone has been sleeping in the garage. Mike panics when Alma suggests she accompanies him on his "business trip" to London. He puts her off by saying he'll be travelling around. Natalie rows with Kevin for disappearing and letting the business down. Leanne is touched when Les gives her flowers and is upset over the baby. She is amazed when Nick tells her that she shouldn't dwell on the baby and must start thinking about emigrating. Curly tells Kevin he can stay at No.7. They lay in wait at the garage and find Tyrone breaking in to sleep there. Leanne can't cope with Gail's sympathy and annoys Nick by telling her that she had an abortion. Gail is shocked when Leanne yells at her that her "sensitive" son was so keen for her to abort he paid for her to go private.
