Everyone is preparing for the Rovers drag night which has a Pop Stars theme. It is Toyah's birthday and she gets a watch from Les and Janice. Kevin, Sam, Tyrone and Dennis are all practising the routine for the drag night - they're doing Leader of the Pack. Martin collects David and takes him off on holiday for a week. Dev and Geena decide to try and sort things out but to no avail. The Rovers' Drag Night goes ahead and is a roaring success. Duggie is Dolly Parton, Vik and Steve are Agnetha and Frida from ABBA, and Norris wins as Eartha Kitt. Steve shocks Karen by showing her the marriage licence which he's bought and tells her that he's booked their wedding for next Wednesday at 12.00 noon. Curly is coming to terms with the fact that he is now a Councillor. He decides his first job is to make sure there is a full public enquiry into the smear test blunder. He does a radio interview with Penny Bowes. Janice and Bobbi can't believe that Karen is getting married just for a bet.
