Kirk is hailed as a hero for rescuing Claire from the fire. Fiz hugs him saying how proud she is. Michelle and Steve spend the afternoon in the cab office together as it's the only way they can get some time alone. Derek arrives in the Rovers with a bunch of flowers for Liz. He pretends he found them outside so the regulars won't be suspicious. The police inform Ashley and Claire the fire was started deliberately. They're also told that a baby has been found dumped in a park but he's alive. Claire and Ashley cry tears of relief when they see that the baby is Freddie. Fiz meets up with John in Roy's Rolls. He tells her he can't stop thinking about her. Fiz tells him she's finished with Kirk as she realises now it's John that she loves. Ashley and Claire are shocked that someone set fire to their house, stole Freddie and dumped him in a park.


Regular castEdit

Guest castEdit



  • Originally the storyline involving Freddie Peacock going missing was intended to last over a period of several months, with Casey Carswell being revealed to have abducted him before starting the fire. However two weeks prior to the transmission of this episode, three-year-old Madeleine McCann was abducted while on holiday in Portugal (to date, she has yet to be found). In order to avoid causing upset, the storyline was cut short which led to Freddie being found in this episode.
  • TV Times synopsis: Fiz drops a bombshell on John, telling him she left Kirk because her feelings for him weren't as strong as those for him all those years ago; and Michelle decides to grab some time with Steve by visiting him at work with a bottle of wine.  
  • Viewing Figures: UK broadcast - 11,210,000 viewers (1st place).
