Les brings Schmeichel the dog round to cheer Chesney up. Les explains to Chesney that Cilla's gone now and he's living with Janice instead. Chesney's disappointed. Karen's still furious with Steve and to get her own back goes on a shopping spree. She accuses Liz of purposely scuppering her birthday plans for Steve but Liz denies it. Kirk talks to Chesney, explaining that he's better off with Les, who cares about him, than with his mum who's unreliable. Cilla reports Janice and Leanne for shoplifting. After a tussle with security and the police they are found innocent and allowed to go. Audrey's upset to learn that Emily, Rita and Blanche are campaigning against Alf Roberts' memorial fountain. Deirdre's worried when Emily asks her to be their inside mole on the Council. Cilla muscles her way into No.5 on the pretext of wanting to see Chesney.
