Steve's put-out when Stella moves into the Rovers and brings her partner Karl Munro with her. Stella explains they come as a package. When Izzy and Will decide to head into town and meet their Freshco mates, Gary announces that he's going with them. Izzy has no choice but to agree. Back from their holiday, Roy and Hayley call in the Rovers looking for Becky. Steve tells them the whole sorry story about how she's left him. Sean panics about looking after Dylan long-term. Marcus assures him that between them they'll manage and suggests they get a place of their own. Karl tells Stella he's not impressed at her new choice of pub. Stella's daughter Eva arrives in the Rovers and announces she's ditched her fiancé and the wedding is off. Under pressure from Stella, Steve agrees to let her stay for a couple of nights. Roy and Hayley track Becky down and find her cavorting drunkenly with a bunch of wasters in the hotel bedroom. The hotel manager arrives on the scene and tells Becky to pack and get out. Ken and Deirdre call in the Rovers and Stella immediately hits it off with Deirdre. Stella is interested to hear about Peter and Leanne. Dev embarrasses Sunita when he gets down on one knee in the Rovers and proposes. To the aunties' delight, Sunita turns him down and he leaves feeling humiliated. Gary and Izzy leave the Freshco's night out early after Gary feigns a headache. He appeases Izzy by promising they'll go for an Indian instead. Sunita explains to Dev she still loves him but there's no need to get married again as she's happy the way things are. Dev and Sunita hug, much to the disappointment of Grishma and Upma. Roy and Hayley take Becky back to the café where she breaks down and cries over the mess she's made of everything.
