Jenny arrives home - alone. Jenny is shocked when she returns alone from France to find out the news about Oliver.
Fiz, bizarrely, gives marriage guidance. Chesney reports to Fiz that Gemma complains they never talk to each other anymore. Fiz suggests they do the same as her and Tyrone tonight a romantic date night at home. Chesney persuades Paul to babysit the children so he can take Gemma out for tea.
Toyah sticks to her decision. Imran urges Toyah to gently test the water with Leanne before ditching their fostering plans. Toyah calls on Leanne and Oliver, but seeing her sister so utterly distraught, realises she couldn't possibly raise the subject of child fostering.
Meanwhile, Evelyn and Arthur meet up for a coffee and a cake in the cafe. To Evelyn's irritation, Roy and Arthur discover they have a shared love of steam locomotives. When Roy suggests they meet in The Rovers later to discuss the Carlisle to Settle line in more detail, Arthur is delighted whilst Evelyn forces a smile.
Elsewhere, Michael feels for Alina when the Telesales Agent confides in her colleague that she has ended her friendship with Sebastian as she can't afford to hurt Emma's feelings any longer.
