Angela finds out from Craig that Tommy has lost his job. She isn't surprised. Sarah finds a doll which doesn't belong to Bethany. She thinks Bethany has taken it from nursery and returns it to the teacher, Glenys Phelps. Tommy is now drinking round the clock and in a terrible state. Craig is worried about him. Jason realises that Mike only offered him a job to make Charlie's life difficult. Brenda turns up at nursery. She keeps giving Bethany presents and saying that they're from her daddy. She talks to her about when she will join her daddy in heaven and leave the house of sin in which she lives. Les arrives home with all sorts of loud tacky Christmas decorations for the house including a huge Santa for the roof. He gets Kirk to put it up. Todd and Sarah discover Bethany has brought another toy back home. Again they think she's "stolen" it, unaware that Brenda gave it to her. Norris and Emily watch in horror as Kirk erects a huge Santa on Les's roof. Music blares out from speakers. Cilla and Les watch with excitement as Chesney switches on the lights, then the whole Street is plunged into darkness. Charlie is secretly planning some illicit building work. Angela is shocked when Craig gets his things and says he's leaving home.
