Sharon demands to know what happened to the £20 that Ken paid his paper bill with. Jack refuses to stop work just because the doctor has told him to stop lifting. When Sharon accuses Leanne of pocketing the £20 she walks out and, discovering Natalie is looking for bar staff, starts at the Rovers. Julia tracks Mike down and offers to tell him who's behind the blackmail for £2,000. Rita is annoyed to discover Leanne has left because Sharon accused her of theft. Sharon feels awful when Rita finds the £20 in the paper book. When he has another twinge, Jack realises he's sicker than he thought. Rita assures Leanne that she's never doubted her honesty but Leanne refuses to return to The Kabin, saying she's more suited to the Rovers. Mike is stunned when Julia tells him that Greg used her to get at him. She gives Greg's address to Mike but when he tries to force her to take him to Greg she runs away from him.
