Frankie cooks for Jack and Vera. Jack thinks Frankie's posh but Frankie explains that she's no posher than they are and was brought up on a council estate in North London. Sunita and Mena continue to mend bridges and Dev and Suresh are delighted to see them so happy. They vow to have more evenings like this. Frankie pretends to come on to Jack who thinks that she's serious and Frankie enjoys winding him up. Sean takes Kelly back to No.11 for a nightcap. Kelly really fancies him and proceeds to tell him all about her childhood, the foster parents and her absent mum. Frankie's appalled to arrive home after a day slogging in the café and looking after Vera to find the house a tip. She demands that Danny takes her out. Liz and Deirdre invite Eileen to join them for a pizza. Frankie, fed up at being in the Rovers again, invites herself along and abandons Danny. Jamie and Leanne head into town for a night out. Dev leaves the dinner party to sort out the alarm at his Eccles shop which is going off. Kelly leans in and tries to kiss Sean. He pushes her away but she's persistent.
