Gail's upset when she overhears Norris, Eileen and Blanche gossiping about her and Phil. Sean's delighted when Chris texts him suggesting another night out. Deirdre takes Mike out for the day to give Leanne a break. Leanne's grateful. Steve suspects Charlie tried it on with Ronnie and threatens him in the Street. Charlie denies it, saying Ronnie tried it on with him. Tracy's furious with Charlie. Deirdre takes Mike to Roy's Rolls. While her back's turned he disappears. Mike turns up at No.5 thinking he still lives there with Bet Lynch. With barely concealed delight Eileen quizzes Sarah about Gail and Phil's split. But when Sarah explains how Phil was violent towards David and how upset her mum is, Eileen feels guilty. Danny, Deirdre, Jamie and Les rush to No.5 worried about Mike. They find him playing drafts with Chesney while Schmeichel watches. Realising Steve's not going to let it drop, Ronnie admits that she flirted with Charlie and led him on just to teach both Charlie and Tracy a lesson. Jamie, Frankie and Deirdre think Mike would be better off on Coronation Street rather than his flat. Danny's torn.
