Loved-up Charlie and Shelley discuss how he's going to manage without her while she attends a hen night in Bradford. Liz is annoyed when Shelley tells Charlie that he's in charge while she's away. When Shelley leaves, Charlie tells Liz that she's in charge as far as he's concerned. Sally's disappointed to find that Rosie's new friend Pippa from Oakhill School isn't at all posh. Martin's annoyed when he discovers the squirrels originally came from Fred's house. He makes Fred stump up the £165 it cost to get rid of them. Jason and Warren pull Shania and Helen, a couple of girls in the Weatherfield Arms. Tyrone takes Maria for a drink to cheer her up. Maria admits that Tyrone will always be a special friend. Kevin admits he enjoyed their anniversary dinner with the kids. Sally's concerned that Rosie will become more like Pippa and start seeing her family as an embarrassment.
