Emily and Rita are seriously worried when they read in Norris's novel that "Naurice" proposes to "Emilia" or "Riba" and that if they reject him he plans to kill himself. Jamie's staying with Leanne in Janice's flat. Janice moans that the flat's too crowded. Ashley fixes up a practise boxing match for Fred with Diggory. Norris tells Rita he can hide his feelings no longer and proposes to her. Rita declines. Disappointed, Norris asks Emily instead. Emily accepts, concerned he might otherwise try and kill himself. Norris looks horrified. Sean and Fiz take Schmeichel to see Tim White the vet. Sean becomes completely tongue-tied and fails to find out whether Tim is gay or straight. Rita and Emily continue to read Norris's novel on the sly only to find he's tricked them and it was a wind-up on his behalf. Jessie and Joanne have fallen out but refuse to discuss it. Fred and Diggory's boxing match takes place. Diggory knocks Fred out in round one. Danny apologises to Jamie and asks him to move back home. Jamie's unimpressed. Jamie suggests that he and Leanne should get a place together. Fred tells Ashley he's pulled out of the boxing match with Eddie Maddocks and instead arranged for Ashley to fight Eddie's son, Marvin instead. Ashley's horrified, pointing out Marvin is the East Lancs featherweight amateur boxing champion.
