Maxine tells Ashley that they have to buy a car as she is sick of travelling in his meat van, especially when she sits on a pork pie on the front seat. Toyah phones her college and arranges to take a year out as she doesn't feel ready to take her exams. Janice blames Phil Simmonds and the rape for setting Toyah back. Audrey takes Alma for her first lot of radiotherapy. Alma feels sick afterwards. Duggie hires Shelley Unwin, a barmaid he knows from the rugby club as a temporary replacement for Toyah. Peter fancies her. Curly and Emily start canvassing but it proves much harder work than expected. Toyah starts her job back at Roy's Rolls. Curly books the Rovers for a send-off party for Alma on Friday. He doesn't know that she's ill and won't be moving to Ludlow.
