The police discover Tommy in the crashed van, conscious but in serious pain. Stella and Eva are woken up by someone banging on the Rovers' door. They're stunned to find that it's Gloria, Stella's mum. On hearing the news about Tommy, Tina rushes to the hospital. Gloria explains how Cliff's made a few enemies in Spain so she's lying low for a while and thought she'd pay them a visit. In the café, Lloyd delivers the news to Tyrone and Kirsty that Tommy's been involved in an accident. Kirsty's unmoved whilst Tyrone's deeply worried. Having prised the address out of Eva, Gloria calls at No.7 and demands that Karl tells her everything. Tina visits Tommy in hospital and tries to assure him everything will be okay. Karl tells Gloria the whole sorry story about how Sunita chased him relentlessly and how he'd give anything to be back with Stella. Gloria vows to sort it out. Tyrone's relieved to hear that Tommy's only suffered a broken ankle, cuts and bruises. Stella invites Leanne and Nick round to meet Gloria. She gushes over Leanne, thrilled to meet her granddaughter. Gloria engineers a meeting of Stella and Karl hoping they'll sort things out. However, Stella's furious at her mum's interfering and throws Karl out telling him that he's not welcome. As Tina prepares to leave the hospital, Tommy's boss Micky from the pizza shop calls in and tells Tommy not only is he fired for crashing the works van but he'll be receiving a bill for the damages. Tommy's gutted.
