Rosie is excited. She's got an audition for the school production of My Fair Lady. Archie still doesn't look well. Audrey arranges to go round and cook him a meal. Sunita feels a bit guilty about stringing both Dev and Ciaran along while she decides who she wants but Bev tells her she's doing the right thing. Steve tracks Karen down to her Aunty Eva's house. It's obvious that Karen hasn't told Eva the whole truth. Rosie arrives home very upset. She failed to get any part in the production other than one backstage! Sally is cross with the school and promises to sort it out. Bev tells Tracy that she believes her about Shelley's drink being spiked even if no one else does. Maria chats up Candice's boyfriend Liam Strong. Candice is furious. Steve tells Karen that he still loves her and wants her back but she becomes hysterical and tells him to leave. Peter visits Lucy again. She tells him that she never wants to see him again and that the baby is hers and not theirs. Peter tries to talk her round and lies, saying that he left Shelley months ago but Lucy doesn't want to know. Peter is devastated.
