Fred and Ashley have a heart-to-heart. Fred explains how he was disappointed to learn that Joshua isn't a blood relation but he also knows that he can still love Joshua. Ashley forgives him and they make up. Richard is delighted to find that he's sold another flat at the full asking price. He tells Gail that he wishes the bail hostel had been scrapped weeks ago but doesn't explain why. Tracy and Lucy are chatting in the florist's shop. Peter comes in and Tracy introduces him to Lucy not realising that they already know each other! Tracy assumes he's come to buy flowers for Shelley. Audrey tries to tell Gail about the Diazepam found in Ade's bloodstream proving that he's innocent of Maxine's murder and Emily's attempted murder. Gail refuses to believe it. Ashley tells Fred that he's going to move back into No.4 with Joshua. Fred asks if he can move in with them and help. Ashley agrees. Richard and Gail celebrate in the Rovers the fact that they're moving to a new house. Gail overhears Steve telling Karen that the bracelet Gail is wearing was found on The Ridings building site. Gail starts to question Richard's innocence herself. Gail leaves the party and goes home where she looks through the medicine cupboard for the Diazepam tablets. Richard walks in on her. She asks Richard outright if he murdered Maxine and he confesses that he did.
