At Roy’s Rolls Milton eyes up Roy’s till rolls and suggests they go into partnership to open a string of railway-themed restaurants called Beef Encounter. But not even Milton’s fancy-pants computer presentation complete with steam train noises and the suggestion that staff could dress up as signalmen, can turn Roy’s head. He turns Milton’s offer down flat, much to Sylvia’s chagrin and he choo-choo-chooses to run Roy’s Rolls just as he’s always done.
Rosie’s heading for life as a reality TV star after her pics are spotted in the Weatherfield Gazette and she gets a call from her agent to say she’s wanted for a trial for Channel Totty-tv or something. This is after Rosie gets sacked from the Council as the face of the road safety campaign when she and Jason get frisky in his van and it hits another car on a road. Jason also gets sacked when Owen finds out he was out in the van when he shouldn’t have been and that he’s crashed it too.
Back at the flat, Carla’s now got hot and cold running man around the place when Carla and Peter, or as I like to call them by their celebrity name, CarPet, play house, leaving little Simon with Ken and Deirdre, or as I like to call them by their celebrity name, Ken and Deirdre. Making breakfast for Carla, there was a lovely line from Peter, a variation on the old “How do you like your eggs in the morning?” chat up line: “Don’t you keep your eggs in the fridge?” Oh yes, Carla’s eggs are very well chilled.
At No. 13 Steve comes up with a plan so that he and Tracy can live under the same roof while living apart. He gets Owen to build a wall to convert the house into two flats. It’s illegal of course but good fun to watch. Tracy’s living upstairs and Steve’s down. He’s very down when Tracy turns off the heating for the whole house but it’s only because Steve had unplugged the lecky to stop Tracy playing her tapes really loudly upstairs. Some habits die hard.
