Bev is curious as Shelley nervously surveys the wad of cash from the bookies. Tracy receives news that her divorce is final. Ken worries that it will affect her more than she's willing to admit. Craig and his friend Bradley Diggins annoy Norris and Rita by kicking a ball against their door. Norris eventually keeps the ball, and Bradley declares war. Roy and Hayley deliver an ultimatum to Tracy to tell Ken and Deirdre about the baby that afternoon, or she'll be sorry. Lucy persuades Shelley that they've done the right thing in keeping the money, and they make plans to go shopping to spend it. Brenda Fearns asks to take Bethany out. Sarah agrees, but insists on accompanying them. Bev suspects Ciaran knows something about Peter's plans. Fiz and Maria unsuccessfully probe Candice about her date that evening. Fiz is convinced she's meeting Kirk. She and Maria storm the flat to find a very obviously ruffled Candice with Nick. Ken and Bev console each other over the pain their children bring to them. A spruced-up Dev visits the solicitors and is frustrated when Maya refuses to deal with him and refers his tenancy query to a colleague, Dean Pomfrey. Roy and Hayley take matters into their own hands and go to see Ken and Deirdre. A very uncomfortable silence ensues until Tracy comes home, and Roy tells them that "'Tracy is expecting a baby and that I'm the father".
