Deirdre pleads with Mike to get Penny to drop the charges for the sake of the love they once felt for each other. Mike softens and agrees to talk to her. Sean overhears and is amazed to learn that they were once an item. Fred gives Ciaran his job in the Rovers back just to annoy Mike and Penny. Jayesh turns down the offer of being Dev's best man, so Dev asks Mike instead. Shelley finds out that Charlie was only in the Weatherfield Arms briefly and wonders where he was the rest of the night. When Charlie says he's off out with a mate, Shelley becomes even more suspicious. Ashley breaks the news to Doreen that he's marrying Claire. Doreen's upset saying that it's too soon to replace Maxine. Mike persuades Penny to drop the charges against Tracy. Penny decides to drop all the charges.
