At No.5, Chesney and Katy gaze adoringly at baby Joseph. Amy receives a whip and top and a copy of Huckleberry Finn from Ken. She is not impressed. Steve tells Stella and Karl that he's putting the Rovers up for sale and offer them first refusal. Stella's keen but Karl reckons that they can't afford it. Eileen spends Christmas at home, alone with a frozen turkey. David's thrilled when the family buy him a new laptop for his 21st birthday. Carla's thrilled when she opens the necklace from Peter. Stella's perturbed when Leanne shows her the new mobile phone that Peter bought her. Kylie invites Becky to join them for lunch at No.8 but Becky feels out of place and making excuses she leaves. Rita, Dennis, Emily, Norris and Mary have lunch with Roy and Hayley at the café. Sylvia arrives back from her cruise and insists on showing them how she's learnt to play the uke-banjo. Stella voices her suspicions about the necklace to Karl but he reckons that Peter must have returned it to the shop and bought Leanne the mobile phone instead. Steve astounds Tracy by telling her that he's bought No.13 from Lloyd so they can live together as a family. Getting down on one knee, Steve proposes to Tracy. She accepts, absolutely thrilled. Becky's devastated. Peter sneaks off and has sex with Carla in the factory. Gary and Izzy finally get back together. Owen and Anna are pleased. Becky accidentally sets fire to her flat and falls asleep in a drunken stupor. Gail and Audrey are pleasantly surprised by Kylie's cooking efforts. Nick spots the fire in the flat above Street Cars. Hayley phones the fire brigade whilst Nick kicks the door down and rescues Becky. Eileen goes for a drink with Lesley and Paul. Lesley causes a stir in the Rovers but Eileen quickly defends her, explaining that she's suffering from dementia. Kylie visits Becky in hospital and promises her that they'll expose Tracy for the liar that she is.
