David receives a DNA package containing swabs to test himself and Lily. Roy is confident about his driving theory test but worried about Hayley's support class. Eva starts at the factory. Kylie is sure something is up between David and Tina. Barry starts to outstay his welcome at Michelle's. He continues to lie that Helen is just away. At the support group, Roy and Hayley meet a couple, Jane and Jeff Rayner. Hayley is shocked when Jane makes jokes about her terminal illness. Eva sees Tina going into No.8 and tells Kylie. Kylie confronts them and accuses them of having an affair. David tells her she's bonkers. Stella and Steve finalise the terms of the Rovers sale. Roy is appalled by Jane's attitude but Hayley is inspired by her as she hasn't let her illness change her. The regulars wonder who the Rovers' mystery buyer is. Steve expects Michelle to love the surprise. Peter is impressed with Eva as PA but Carla prefers Michelle. Hayley decides to stay at home rather than go to a hospice but doesn't want to be a burden. David posts the letter containing the DNA samples.
