He laments to Eileen how everywhere he looks he sees loved-up couples. Tina calls at No.9 with their loan payment. She apologises for the fact they're £20 short this week. Kirsty's unsympathetic telling her that it's not good enough. Beth lies to Fiz and Julie telling them what a gorgeous hunk her internet date turned out to be. Kirk, sporting a black eye, plays along with her story. Tina tells Owen, Gary and Izzy that their surrogacy plan is back on and Tommy won't stand in their way. Gary and Izzy are thrilled. Under pressure from Gloria, Stella finally agrees to take part in Lancashire Leisure's "Pub of the Year" competition. Gloria registers their entry purporting to be the landlady. Lloyd calls at Mandy's house again. A young girl answers the door and explains that she's Mandy's daughter, Jenna. Lloyd leaves perplexed. Tina and Tommy worry about how they're going to find the deposit for a new flat. Tina asks Owen for an advance on the surrogacy fee but he refuses. Fiz and Julie realise that Beth is telling porkies. Beth admits her date was a disaster, Kirk rescued her and really she fancies Kirk. Fiz and Sean are stunned. Anna suggests to Owen that he moves in with her and then Tina and Tommy can rent his flat over the yard. Owen thinks it's a great idea and Tina and Tommy are thrilled.
