MICHELLE’S BIRTHDAY TAKES AN UNEXPECTED TURN As Michelle opens her birthday cards, a bouquet arrives but they’re from Will, not Steve and Michelle is disappointed.

They’re interrupted by Liz whose disapproval is evident and Will heads off in haste. When Tim unwittingly reveals that he’s sent a driver to the airport to collect Steve, Michelle’s overjoyed to realise her husband is coming home for her birthday after all. When it emerges that Steve wasn’t on the flight, Michelle is upset and convinced Steve no longer cares about her. She heads to Will’s house. Kissing her on the cheek, Will shows her in.
PHELAN PLAYS POLITICS WITH SALLY Sally’s annoyed at Tim for failing to deliver the leaflets advertising the meeting about the proposed Freshco plans.

Will he get his way?
SOPHIE’S DISAPPOINTED AT CAZ’S RETURN Whilst Kate makes up a bed for Caz’s return, Johnny warns her not to get her hopes up as Caz has made her feelings perfectly clear.

ELSEWHERE Bethany admits to Luke she’s being bullied and Luke’s deeply concerned. As Lauren and her mates lay into Bethany at a bus stop, Luke swings by in a sports car and the pair roar off leaving the bullies open-mouthed. Bethany thanks Luke for coming to her rescue.

Will kisses her and she responds passionately. Steve arrives in the Rovers, tanned and relaxed and carrying a cane donkey. Liz demands to know where he’s been.

Yasmeen’s shocked to discover the wrecked centre but Phelan steps in and offers to sort out the mess at a knockdown price. Yasmeen’s grateful for his kindness. Sally moans to Tim and Todd how the Freshcos meeting is off as the community centre has been trashed, but what a saviour Phelan has been. Todd’s suspicious and confronts Phelan telling him he might have fooled everyone else but he knows he was behind the community centre vandalism. Phelan’s unfazed.
