Shelley is quietly convinced that Terri Metcalfe's tarot reading may be true. Ashley is dismissive of Maxine's "message" and tells Fred not to mention it again. Fiz plans to move into Les's house in an attempt to drive out Cilla but Les chooses Cilla over Fiz. Lucy allows Peter to look after Simon for a few hours. He bumps into Shelley on the way to the park with Simon. He tells Shelley that he still loves her, but after all his lies, she wants to take things slowly. Lucy watches from her car. She's livid with Peter, but hides her feelings later. Peter reiterates his warning that he'll tell Steve about the baby if Tracy doesn't. Steve is annoyed at how much the wedding will cost him and informs Karen that they can't have a big wedding. They row. Steve calls the wedding off entirely. Fiz accuses Cilla of trying to fleece Les. He is left bereft when Cilla walks out. Tracy saw Steve's argument with Karen, and presumes that Peter has told Steve about the baby. She goes to see Steve to apologise but it's obvious he doesn't know anything. Instead, he gives her the good news that she's passed her knowledge test. Lucy is determined that she's going to get Peter back herself.
