Peter thinks he's won his bet with Blanche and asks her to pay him £20 for staying off the booze. Blanche points out that the Christmas period isn't over yet. Emily and Norris search in vain for Jed. However, they find Jed's cat Sunny Jim and bring him home in a basket. Molly relents and tells Tyrone that he can move back into their bed. Tyrone's delighted until Molly produces a bolster to put down the middle of the bed. Peter takes Leanne for lunch in the Rovers. He orders an orange juice and Leanne's impressed that he seems to have turned over a new leaf. Lloyd meets Danielle from the Brazilian Crunch class for a drink. Poppy and Liz are quietly jealous but it's soon apparent that Danielle is boring the pants off Lloyd and he makes excuses to get rid of her. Janice is working in the hospital café. Emily's concerned at the way she treats the customers. Janice nips out for a fag and meets a patient called Mike. There's an instant spark between them. Pam cuts a deal with Darryl. She tells him how she's making bio-diesel in the privy at No.9. Darryl agrees to supply the chip oil in return for 50% of the profits. Lloyd DJ's at the Brazilian Crunch party. Lloyd and Liz can't take their eyes off each other and end up kissing passionately.
