He wants Rosie to do something positive with the money, but she leaves him under no illusions that it'll be spent the only way that Rosie knows how – holidays and handbags. When Rosie gets home, Sally is annoyed to see that there is nothing wrong with her and she's clearly been skiving.

Kevin lets Chesney wash a couple of cars to earn some extra money, and he opens up about the problems he's having with Fiz.

Later, in the toilet of the Rovers, Kevin corners Jason and accuses him of sleeping with Molly.

Gary approaches Ted to apologise for what happened. He explains that he intended to burgle the house, but he never meant for him to get hurt. Ted offers Gary his hand just as David arrives and demands that Gary leave Ted alone. Will this feud ever get sorted?
