CAN DEBBIE AND ABI MAKE AMENDS? Kevin sets off with Jack to an athletics event and suggests to Abi and Debbie they take the opportunity to get to know each other. Sally tells Debbie that Abi is a good person and loves Kevin, unaware that Abi is on the phone to Peter telling him all she can think about is getting a fix. Debbie apologises to Abi and suggests they start again.
IT’S A DAY OF MIXED EMOTIONS FOR STEVE AND LEANNE Steve and Leanne are pleased when the consultant reveals that a specialist from another hospital is coming over to assess Oliver and give a second opinion. Having done some research on the internet, Nick tells a thrilled Leanne about a hospital in Germany where they can treat people with Oliver’s condition. But their hope is short lived when the consultant breaks the news to Steve and Leanne that having obtained a second opinion, unfortunately it has only confirmed that Oliver will never be able to breathe unaided and the time has come to talk about switching off his life support.
PAUL AND BILLY GET VISIT FROM THE POLICE A police officer calls round and, having confirmed that the body was indeed that of Kel, asks Paul a series of questions. When Paul asserts that he’s not surprised Kel was murdered, the officer points out that he never said he was.
DAVID A downcast David tells Sally that after a visit from a structural engineer, it would seem that he’s responsible for the hole in the garden and it’ll cost at least £20k to fix. When Shona admits how much she enjoyed her night with David, Nina urges her to tell him. David realises he has no choice but to sell.
ELSEWHERE Undertaker George Shuttleworth calls at the Rovers and apologises to Mary for being short with her earlier. Mary remains frosty but Emma can tell she’s taken a shine to him.
