Michelle feels Steve is on a downward spiral. Liz suggests they take a holiday and Tony arranges it with a mate. Norris thinks his parcel has been delivered to No.8 by mistake but while he's arguing with Kylie about it, the postman calls at No.3 and puts a slip through the letterbox when he fails to get an answer. Kylie leaves Callum a message, asking to see him. Michael is dreading meeting Gavin. Michelle tells Steve she's booked a hotel in the Lakes for the weekend. He's unenthusiastic but agrees to go. Lloyd is amazed that Michelle is being so easy on him. Mary excitedly gears up for the party and pampers herself at the salon. Callum calls the salon to arrange to meet Kylie. She pretends to David that she has a nail appointment. Liz warns Steve that Michelle has nearly had enough. Kylie gets more speed from Callum but refuses payment as he's Max's dad. The Windasses move into the bookies flat, putting on a brave face. Norris arranges to collect his parcel from the depot. Mary hides away in her motor home after suffering an allergic reaction to her false eyelash glue. She drags Dev inside and tells him she can't go to the party. With Steve and Michelle due to leave for the Lakes, Steve is nowhere to be found. Gail and Michael introduce themselves to Gavin in the bistro. Michael finds Steve sitting in his new car in the Street and demands to know what's wrong. Dev complains Julie and Steph that he'll be the only person at the party without a date. Julie volunteers to accompany him. Steve can't explain his feelings to Michelle.
