It's Christmas Eve and also Rosie's birthday. She's delighted when Bill gives her an MP3 player. Les and Yana sit in a bath full of mushy peas outside the Medical Centre to raise money for Cilla's dolphin fund. It's freezing and Cilla enjoys watching them suffer. Rosie tells David that Sophie hasn't got a sixth sense at all but has been reading Ivy Brennan's diary. David points out that Ivy is his step-gran and by rights the diary should be his. Steve apologises to Michelle for letting her down and asks her out on New Year's Eve instead. He's gutted when she says she's already got a date. Sophie hands Ivy's diary over to David who proceeds to read it. Maria joins him in the car and they giggle over some of the diary entries. Sonny Dhillon calls in the Rovers and confirms that he's the one with the New Year's Eve date with Michelle. David reads a diary entry which says how Gail wanted to have an abortion but Martin persuaded her not to. David realises that he was the baby in question. Liz invites the Barlows for Christmas dinner. Les and Yana finally climb out of the bath to find that Cilla's locked them out. David wraps the diary in Christmas paper as a present for Gail.
