Gail treats the news of David and Kylie's reconciliation with bemusement. Tracy returns from London and isn't happy to find out that Deirdre's party is in the Rovers. Family and friends look forward to Deirdre's return. Kylie tells Sarah that Callum was all over her yesterday. Sarah dismisses it but is secretly worried. Cathy apologises to Roy for the way she treated him and suggests they have another go at decluttering. Roy agrees. Bev Unwin arrives in the Street and is nervous as she knocks on the door to No.1. Ken wonders why Deirdre isn't with her. Bev announces to Ken, Tracy and Audrey that Deirdre died that afternoon. As the Barlows struggle to digest the news, Bev tells them that she found Deirdre sitting in a patio chair in the garden and couldn't wake her. Ken is comforted that she died peacefully, from a suspected aneurysm. Tracy can't believe it and breaks down. Ken struggles to hold back the tears when Bev hands him Deirdre's glasses. Eileen and Michael go for a friendly meal at the bistro, planning to go to Deirdre's party later. Liz finds out about Deirdre's death when she calls at No.1 for the cake. She hugs Ken supportively and offers to tell the party-goers at the Rovers. Tracy doesn't feel re-assured that Deirdre didn't suffer - she wants her back. Bev feels guilty that Deirdre spent her last months with her. Sarah confronts Callum about Kylie, but ends up begging for forgiveness when he dumps her for not trusting him. Liz announces Deirdre's death to a stunned crowd at the Rovers. Emily is hit hard and is taken home by Rita. Roy forms a plan of action at Cathy's - finding her somewhere to sit. Tracy is upset when Audrey calls her "Tracylove", as Deirdre did, and cries over the cake. Having kept his composure for his family's sake, Ken breaks down in the yard with Steve, wondering what he's going to do without Deirdre.
