Adam complains that he doesn't like his school. Mike decides to do something about it and makes arrangements for him to attend Oakhill School which is a local private school. Mike is put out when Adam shows little enthusiasm as he was hoping to be sent back to the private school he went to in Glasgow but as a boarder. The cleaner at the Medical Centre doesn't show up for work. Matt has to do the cleaning himself as Molly refuses. They offer the cleaning job to Edna. Dev tells Deirdre that he will be late home as there is a crisis at the Swinton shop. David helps Sam clean his car ready for its MOT. Duggie tells Fred and Mike that he's serious about getting out of the pub. He says he wants to sell his share of the business. Blanche tries to persuade Deirdre to come home to Ken. She refuses. Tom Bowden, the social worker, calls to see Ken. The Interim Order regarding Adam was only temporary and Tom has to file a report about Adam's long-term arrangements. Ken can hardly be bothered to talk to Tom as he's hit rock bottom having lost his daughter, grandson and now Deirdre. Alma calls round and insists on taking Ken out. They talk for hours and Ken feels a little better. Deirdre has a meal ready for Dev when he gets home. They spend the evening chatting and drinking. Deirdre leans forward and tries to kiss Dev. Dev is horrified. Deirdre feels terribly humiliated.
