Vera gets a phone call to say she's won a dream house - she's ecstatic. Norris goes to the bank and gets all the mortgage forms to buy Emily's house. Emily is seriously worried, especially when Norris tells her of the alterations he's going to make. Audrey admits to Gail that she's had second thoughts about her and the kids moving in but that instead she will pay off Gail's debts for her so they don't have to move. Kevin makes up with Rosie. He tells her that she can have her mates round so they can practise their singing and dancing. Jason arrives home worn out after his first day at the new job in Warrington. Jason moans to Tony Stewart about the fact that Eileen has bought Todd a laptop and Todd is her favourite. Fred takes Petula Peach out on a date. Petula mistakes Ashley and Curly for a gay couple. Audrey is panicking. She confides in Archie that she's checked her investments to find that they've plummeted and she's not sure that she can afford to bail Gail out as promised. Vera is showing off to everyone in the Rovers that she's moving to a dream house when to her horror she goes outside to see a greenhouse being delivered to No.9. She misheard the man on the phone.
