Edna feels bad when she hears that Deirdre has lost her job over the Weatherfield Gazette article. Rita refuses to have anything to do with Anthony, seeing him as a womaniser. Natalie gives evidence and is made to look foolish as Ms Deakin of the defence make her admit she has no evidence against Jez. Ken talks to Toyah's boss, Paul Beck, and gets her job back for her. She is pleased that he enjoyed her interview. Natalie is upset when the court hears that the bat that killed Tony was found in Jez's flat. Jez swears on oath he didn't kill Tony.
