Sally's depressed as she keeps getting job rejections. She suspects that Ian's been blackening her name with all the local garages. Fred, Betty and Ciaran become increasingly suspicious about Shelley's chickenpox. Bob's stayed the night with Liz. They bump into Steve who's disapproving. Diggory chats up Sunita and offers her a job just to wind Dev up. Shelley panics when Fred tries to get into her room and Jason's fixing the guttering outside her window. Charlie sends Fred away with a flea in his ear. Deirdre's worried about Shelley and decides to tell Bev what's going on. Sally asks Diggory for a job but changes her mind when he suggests she'd be expected to work late - it reminds her of Ian. Liz is delighted to receive a bouquet of flowers from Bob. Kevin tells Sally that the factory are looking for machinists. Sally's upset pointing out that she used to be Supervisor at Underworld. A delighted Sunita tells Dev that she's pregnant. Dev's overcome with emotion. Bev storms into the Rovers, slaps Charlie and forces her way into Shelley's bedroom where she sees her black eye.


Regular castEdit

Guest castEdit



  • First appearance of Bev Unwin since 27th December 2004.
  • This was the second of three consecutive weeks in which the usual broadcast pattern was amended to transmit two episodes of Coronation Street back-to back, though not as one continuous hour-long instalment. This was to lead the two episodes into ITV1's Celebrity Love Island and boost its ratings. This first episode of the evening was transmitted, as usual, without cast or production credits but with a caption which read Coronation Street continues in five minutes. Transmission of this first episode of the evening took place at 8.30pm.
  • TV Times synopsis: Shelley's absence causes concern, bringing a familiar face back to the Rovers; Liz wonders if she's ready for a relationship; and Sally takes a job at the bakery. (The magazine published one synopsis to cover the two episodes.)
  • Viewing Figures: 10,300,000 viewers (2nd place).
