Vera summons Terry to visit Jack in hospital. Blanche continues to get at Deirdre for being unemployed whilst Ken slums it. Emily is stunned when she accuses her of stealing Deirdre's job and calls her hard-faced. Toyah tells Leanne that she's slept with Spider and loves him. Leanne accuses Spider of taking advantage of her. He swears he'll never hurt her. Tom is puzzled when Maxine asks him to be Ashley's best man. Betty accompanies Maud to Sidney Templeton's funeral on the day she should have married him. Jack is horrified to receive a visit from Terry and accuses him of coming round in the hope he'd die. Vera is upset when he refuses to see him. Blanche urges Ken to propose to Deirdre. Jack's operation is a success. Terry assures Vera he's a changed man but won't stick around where he's not wanted. Ashley refuses to have Tom as his best man as he hardly knows him. Maxine is angry that he won't let her have her way.

Blanche Hunt (to Ken Barlow about Deirdre): "D'ya know, I think it's that name of hers that doesn't help. That 'Rachid'... I think it makes her imagine she's riding across the desert on a camel instead of leading a normal life. You change her back to 'Barlow' - it's the only way you'll get her behaving herself again!"
