Gail is cold towards Richard as he tries to make it up to her. Sunita has a go at Dev over the way he treats women. He thanks her for the advice. Norris reads the stars and notes that it is a day for romance for both him and Tyrone. Things are awkward between Sunita and Deirdre. They later talk and clear the air. Norris is transfixed when Diana Black enters The Kabin to pay off her mother's magazines. Rita watches amused as he flaunts himself before Diana. At work Geena is concerned about the gossips. Shelley tries to reassure her. Charlotte Morris turns up at No.8. She apologises, then leaves for Australia. Gail finds Maria at the Rovers and confronts her about leaving Nick without telling him. Audrey is also shocked and refuses to give Maria her job back. Diana comes back and asks Norris to find a home for her mother's dog - Mr Woo. Rita tells Norris that she wants him.

Meanwhile, Ken tells Kevin that he is delighted with the progress Ade has made at the garage. Tyrone approaches Maria but she walks away telling him that she did not come back for him.
