Ashley goes back to work and Fred looks after Joshua. Shelley's sister Sharon has taken a turn for the worse. Peter persuades Shelley to go and visit her saying that he will look after the Rovers. Jack and Vera report their lost investments to the police. They explain that Richard insisted that they had to write the cheque out to "Richard Hillman" rather than a company. They realise how naive they've been. Gail receives a letter from the bank telling her that her accounts and all her assets have been frozen.

Peter tells Lucy that Shelley has gone away for the night so he can stay the night with her. Vera bangs on the Hillmans' door and accuses Gail of stealing their money.
