Becky returns to the Rovers and admits that she had a row with Tracy and their adoption chances are in jeopardy. Steve's annoyed that she couldn't control her temper just this once. David starts a petition for Gail's cause. Tracy phones Deirdre and tells her how Becky threatened to stop Amy's visits. She pretends to become distressed and Deirdre comforts her. Carla reveals that Underworld's current order has doubled but the deadline remains the same. She orders the girls to get working. Deirdre confronts Becky and Steve about Tracy's phone call. Steve's shocked when Deirdre reveals that Becky was thrown out of the visiting room for attacking Tracy. David and Graeme hang a "Free Gail McIntyre" banner outside No.8. Nick congratulates them and informs David that he's arranged for a Gazette reporter to cover the campaign. David's surprised but grateful. Roy prepares a special meal for Hayley. She attempts to persuade him to celebrate the longevity of their relationship with a wedding but Roy cannot overlook the expense and reluctantly withdraws his proposal. Hayley's gutted. David passes round his petition in the Rovers. Eileen, Liz and Julie sign it. Lloyd collects Cheryl from the club and observes as she gets ticked off by the manager for skiving. Lloyd offers to help if she's having trouble with her boss but Cheryl assumes he's just chatting her up. Lloyd curses his stupidity. Nick tells Carla he's approached an old contact with a view to securing another order. Becky rows with Steve for not supporting her in front of Deirdre.
