Audrey tells Rita that she is not going to the Chamber of Commerce dance as Lewis isn't free. Guilty Rita is about to come clean but has second thoughts when Audrey patronisingly commends her for attending alone. Rosie bids in an online auction for a present for her footballer boyfriend. Claudia pays Audrey a visit and admits that she tried to book Lewis for the dance too. She persuades a reluctant Audrey that they should go together. Steve tries to raise Becky's spirits by suggesting that they have other parenting options, including adoption. Becky berates him for his lack of sensitivity. At the Town Hall, Rita soon relaxes in Lewis's company. Becky tells her troubles to Hayley, who makes her see that adoption might be a viable solution in the future. Becky's grateful for Hayley's advice. Claudia and Audrey bump into Lewis at the dance but Audrey fails to spot Rita. Rosie wins the auction but Kevin returns from the match and tells her that nobody's heard of her boyfriend. Rosie's unconcerned. As Lewis and Rita leave the dance, Audrey spots them together. Audrey's jealous, and she and Rita trade insults until Lewis steps in and they depart. Claudia reminds Audrey that Lewis is paid to say nice things to her and he doesn't mean them. Audrey shrugs it off but it's obvious she's falling for a gigolo.
