Toyah tells Fiz that she's got a new boyfriend, someone she's known for a while from college. Curly is preparing the curry for Sunday dinner, things are going wrong and Sunita comes to the rescue. Mick asks Janice to come with him for lunch at Curly and Emma's house. Janice accepts. Rita tells Sally how pleased she is for her that she's marrying Kevin again and how much better the girls seem as a result. A young lad assaults Blanche in the Street and steals her handbag. Tommy rushes over and helps her up. The police ask Tommy for a description of the thief but he says he can't help. Rita and Norris are suspicious of Tommy as they know he must have seen the lad. Les is horrified when he finds out that Janice is out with another man. He is even more upset when he finds out that Mick is a policeman. Angela and Katy spot the police car and are immediately worried that they will have to move again. Tommy calms them down. Sally is shocked when there's a knock on the door and it's Alex. Alex tells her that he's split up from his fiancée Gaynor as he realises that it's Sally that he wants. He tells Sally that she's only got a few hours until the wedding and that she must decide who she wants, Kevin, whom she isn't in love with, or him, whom she does love.
