Fred urges Ashley to tell Joshua all about Maxine but Ashley refuses. Harry calls on Eileen to see if she will be joining him on his trip. Harry is upset when Eileen declines his invitation. As Les has given up his job, he tells Cilla to do the same. Cilla refuses, knowing full well that she doesn't have the money that she claims she has. Claire accepts that it's difficult for Ashley to tell Joshua about Maxine but talks to Ashley again. Ashley asks Claire to marry him. Sunita's exhausted after running the Corner Shop while Dev's been away on holiday but is really excited at the thought of seeing him again. Les tells Kirk to get Jamie to take all of his old furniture to the tip as he's going to replace it all now that Cilla's come into money. Harry hands his notice in at the Rovers telling Fred that he's off to see the world. Dev and Maya arrive back at the Corner Shop. Sunita is thrilled to see Dev again. Claire tells Maria that Ashley has asked her to marry him. Maria says she should. Cilla is horrified that Les has cleared the house and tells him there's no money as her "aunt" had decided to leave all her money to her cats. Les is very upset. Eileen tells Harry there's a leaving "do" for him in the Rovers, but he doesn't want to go in and quietly slips away. Ashley again asks Claire to marry him. Again she declines thinking he is asking her for all the wrong reasons.
