Lewis, who would be surely twirling his villainous moustache - if he had one - clearly in reality still holds a torch for ex love Gail's mum Audrey as witnessed by his annoyance when she brought her short-lived rough-hewn new date - "a lower order primate," as Lewis sneered - into the Bistro.
Audrey won't be impressed when she finds out, as she is bound to eventually, that Lewis has seduced her daughter as part of his revenge plan for breaking him and Audrey up and not even for her money - Gail doesn't have any, surely. Good to see Nigel Havers in full evil Charmer mode, though.
Meanwhile Leanne assured Nick she still loved him not Peter and was rearranging the wedding and Kevin apologised to Jenna.
Tommy was let off with a police warning over the (now miraculously recovered from death's door and potential brain damage) Fizz's faulty boiler carbon monoxide poisoning business, even though her secret love Tyrone knew he was to blame really.
