Fred uses the reindeer meat to make stew for everyone. Leanne tells Jez she won't let him rob the Rovers and threatens him with the police but he tells her if she pulls out he'll scar Toyah for life. To please him she agrees to have sex with him but afterwards is horrified when he tells her it makes no difference; the robbery is still on. Martin rushes to be with Rebecca, worried that Jerry has been violent towards her. He is torn as he wants to be with her but can't stay. Linda, Janice, Hayley and Deirdre perform an Abba song on stage. Maxine leads the residents in attacking Fred over the reindeer meat and tells Audrey that it was he who reported Sergei Kasparov to Immigration. They put him in the stocks and throw wet sponges at him. Kevin begs Alison to return home with him, telling her she deserves more and he loves her. Mike tells Linda he knows he's a selfish person but she still refuses to return to him. Rita entertains the residents singing On the Street Where You Live. Mark returns from visiting Maggie and feels sorry for Mike over his split with Linda. Mike admits that she got under his skin. Kevin asks Alison to marry him. She refuses but says she'll come back with him. Roy pretends to have lost the keys to the stocks so Les has to remain locked in them for hours. Mark tells Linda she's broken Mike. She tells him to grow up and is startled when he makes a pass at her. She responds and drags him down to the factory floor. Toyah makes Tyrone's year by snogging him. Mark and Linda barely have time to dress before Mike interrupts them and asks her to marry him and Mark to be his business partner. Steve tries to swindle Emily over the proceeds of his tombolla but she sees through him and demands receipts for his "overheads". Kevin and Alison return to Weatherfield. Leanne locks up the pub but is too late as two thugs have hidden in the toilets. When they come out she tries to stop the robbery but they grab her. She fights them and makes a row, alerting Natalie who is also grabbed. Vinny appears but by the time he arrives Leanne has been knocked unconscious and is cradled by distraught Natalie. A visitor turns up on the Street and knocks on Curly's back door - it is Raquel.
