Alya watches as Owen and Gary swap insults in the street, troubled by the rift she’s caused. The Nazirs move into No.6, welcomed by Gail and Michael. Yasmeen sees how upset Alya is by her situation. Gail tells Michael to invite Gavin for Christmas dinner and orders David to buy a nice tree that the Corner Shop has for sale. Owen overhears Gary inviting Alya to the flat when she rings to say that she needs to talk to him. He tells him he has no decency. David can't buy the tree as he forgets his wallet and Tyrone beats him to it. Tony’s ears prick up as Leanne gives Tracy a message from Peter - pay up the rent or the shop’s going up for sale at the end of the week. David demands Tyrone relinquish the tree when he sees him collecting it but he refuses and they tussle over it in the street, David losing both the fight and the tree. Erica flirts with Nick in the bistro, much to Gail's annoyance. Gary is devastated when Alya tells him she wants to finish with him. Gavin tells Michael he’s not been to see a doctor yet. Nick readily accepts Erica's invitation to join her at the Rovers later. Alya tells the family she's finished with Gary and that she hates herself for what she's done. Kylie hears about the tree tussle and wonders what's wrong with David. He tells her he just wants things to return to normal. Steph is puzzled when she invites Gavin for a drink in the bistro on New Year's Eve and he is evasive with his answer. He displays a similar attitude towards the invitation to spend Christmas at No.8 and rings the real Gavin in a panic. Tony offers to supply Tracy with his latest consignment of dodgy goods and offers to clear her rent arrears in exchange for 50% of her business. Nick and Erica cosy up in the back room of the Rovers and in no time at all they’re kissing passionately.
