As Katy's about to launch into a full confession, Angela grabs her and takes over the speech herself, saying how much they all loved Tommy. Ken dislikes himself for being so jealous of Ray, a dying man. He and Deirdre arrange to have a day out together on Sunday. Tommy's burial takes place. Craig's grief-stricken but Katy's just numb. Ray persuades Deirdre to take him to Southport on Sunday. Deirdre invites Emily and Tracy too so as to appease Ken. Sally tells Ian their affair is over as Rosie's found out. Sally wants a guarantee that her job will be safe but Ian's non-committal. Katy worries that she won't be able to live a lie for the rest of her life. Ken's put out when Deirdre cancels their Sunday trip out as she's promised to take Ray to Southport. Roy and Chesney attend their first self-defence ju-jitsu class. Ray's in considerable pain. Tracy's genuinely distressed. Sally convinces Rosie she's finished the affair with Ian. Roy realises ju-jitsu isn't his forte but Chesney proves to be excellent and lays out the instructor flat on the floor. The police call round to the Harrises and tell worried Angela that they've ruled out the Sheffield mob and are looking for other leads.
