To Ken, Deirdre and Leanne's horror, Peter gets horribly drunk and makes a fool of himself in front of everyone including the local press. Joe tells Tina about his debts but insists he's going to sort out his own mess. Joe packs his rucksack for the trip to the Lakes. He tells Gail that he's managed to bring the trip forward and insists she books the time off work. Liz and Betty are relieved to hear that Enid is blaming her food poisoning on the amount she drank and not the hotpot. Peter drunkenly sets off in search of more alcohol. Leanne's upset and tells Ken that her new bar is now officially closed before it ever actually opened. George and Eve are shocked at Peter's behaviour and offer to look after Simon for the night. Leanne's grateful. Hayley arrives back in a state of excitement having enjoyed her salsa class. Becky tells Roy and Hayley about her pregnancy and Steve tells Betty. Ciaran tries to reassure Leanne that Peter's been in worse scrapes and he'll be okay. Joe hugs Tina telling her that he loves her. Tina's slightly unsettled by his mood. Peter arrives home drunk. Leanne cries blaming herself for ever thinking the new bar was a good idea. Peter sits with his head in his hands hating himself for being so weak.
