The girls turn up the radio, effectively drowning out Janice's cries for help. Janice tries to reach an open window by climbing up a shelving unit. The unit tips from the wall and crashes down on top of her, leaving her unconscious. Roy overhears Steve telling Tracy that he wants nothing to do with the baby. Nick returns to the factory as the fire alarm goes off. He retrieves the petty cash, computer disks and ledgers as Hayley dials 999. A headcount reveals that Janice is missing and Karen remembers where she went. Nick rushes into the factory to get her out. Gail and Maria wait anxiously outside the factory for Nick, when he appears carrying an unconscious Janice in his arms. Nick immediately collapses. Les worriedly calls out for Janice, automatically calling her his wife. Hayley gives Janice mouth-to-mouth, whilst Harry applies pressure to her chest. Janice starts to breathe and she and Nick are taken away in an ambulance. Audrey tries to calm Maria as she's frantic with worry over Nick. Janice has a broken ankle, but was lucky to survive. If she hadn't have been knocked unconscious the smoke inhalation would have killed her. Nick has a burned shoulder and has to stay in overnight for observation. At the hospital, Karl reassures Todd that Nick is okay, aware of Todd's past feelings for Nick. Mike is horrified to see the ruins of his factory. The Fire Station Officer tells him that there'll be in an enquiry into the cause of the fire. Karen and Fiz tell Janice that her rescuer was Nick. Maria sees Nick alone. She tells him that she loves him and they are reconciled. Mike is troubled and tells Rita that maybe it's a sign for him to give up the business.
