Ashley goes into hospital for his operation which is a complete success. He and Maxine are delighted. Sally calls into the hospital to see Martin and they snog in his office while he's on duty. Peter is desperately trying to work out ways of raising the money to buy the Betting Shop. Sam is so attentive that he's making Toyah feel suffocated. Sally and Gail agree that their friendship is too important and that they mustn't fall out. Duggie leaves Shelley in charge of the pub while he attends a Rugby Club Dinner. Maxine who is in a celebratory mood, Janice, Edna and Sunita all get drunk in the Rovers. Shelley leaves them to it asking Edna to lock up when they've finished. Edna isn't feeling very well. David is feeling vulnerable and can't sleep. He tells Gail he loves her. Maxine goes home and meets Matt who is also drunk. She invites him in and they end up having sex and he stays the night. Karen has another slanging match with Rita. Rita tells Steve she's going to phone Alec Gilroy and get the pair of them slung out of the flat.
