Vik and Bobbi are getting on really well having now slept together. Ashley is still refusing to provide a sperm sample until Matt has a chat with him and tells him that he's being stupid. Ashley tells Maxine he will go ahead with it. Curly and Emily are preparing for a Council Election Public Debate which will take place in the evening. Alma says she will be there too to support Audrey. Geena is feeling very down about Dev. Dev tries to talk to her but she cuts him dead. Shelley manages to persuade Les to put his name down for the drag night as it's in aid of charity: the Women's Centre which Toyah is attending after her ordeal. Janice bets Karen £10 she can't get Steve to take her to dinner that night. Peter tells Ken he's thinking of leaving Weatherfield. Ken is worried. When Karen successfully wins her bet with Janice they decide to double or quits if Karen can persuade Steve to take her on holiday. At the election debate Audrey feels the strain when she is asked how she would tackle the smear test blunder if she remained on the Council. At the end of the evening she tells Curly that her heart isn't in it and she is standing down and withdrawing from the Campaign.
