Michelle is getting tired of hearing about Steve's attempt to apologise to Harry over the Dan situation. Steve is convinced he has done the right thing though and it seems as though his perseverance has paid off when Harry tells him that Dan has finally agreed to go to the police and change his statement.

Steve has a nervous few hours until Dan finally arrives in the pub. Michelle suggests that Steve have a few days away after the stress of the past couple of weeks and he tells her that he has been thinking of going to see Andy - despite it being her suggestion, she finds it odd that he seems in a bit of a rush to go.

Ken has been invited to a university reunion. Deirdre thinks he should go but Ken is concerned that his life hasn't amounted to much and he doesn't think he can face his old friends.

The factory girls are pleased to have Liam back but Carla makes it very clear to him that she was serious about him selling his share of the business to Tony. Liam doesn’t want to sell, leaving Carla furious - she makes an appointment at the salon with Maria.

At the salon, Carla tells a bemused Maria that Liam has gone to the gym with Tony. Meanwhile, Liam has finally given in to Carla's demands and offers the factory to him at a knock-down price. He's surprised when Tony plays hard-to-get and tells him he'll think about it. When Tony tells Carla about the deal, she advises him to make Liam an offer.

Mel is convinced Teresa has had her hands in the till and confronts her. To her surprise, Teresa comes clean and confesses. But she lies and tells Mel that she needed the money to buy some presents for Finlay - showing the bag of games Lloyd had given her as proof!

Later, Mel is puzzled when Lloyd shows interest in whether Finlay liked his computer games. She is stunned when he confesses that he is Finlay's dad. Her reaction to the confession leaves him speechless. When she storms round to the house with Lloyd in tow, she demands he tell Jerry and Teresa what he has just told her.

Elsewhere, Becky is uneasy around Michelle but is not happy when Roy refuses to let her serve her and sends her out on an errand instead. Also, Liz is being surprisingly attentive and her behaviour is making Vernon slightly uneasy, but he is pleased when she tells him she will go with him to the recording studio. At the Platts, Tina finds a job in the paper for David but he is worried that his Gran won't give him a reference.
