sees it’s from Fred (Peter) and knowing how upset Toyah has been since
falling out with this Fred fella, she replies to tell him to come to the
flat. Peter tells Tim he’s on his way to see Wilma (Toyah) and when Tim
tells Leanne, it dawns on her what’s been happening in Bedrock right
under her nose. She walks in on Toyah and Peter snogging on her sofa and
there’s tear and anger and lots of crying and shouting, as you’d
expect. “He’s the scabbiest knight in shining armour that’s ever
saddled up,” Leanne says of Peter. There’s even more shocks for Leanne
when Eva tells her that she already knew about Toyah and Peter and even
Simon knew too. All of this rather puts the damper on Nick’s plan to
propose to Leanne as the poor woman doesn’t know where to put herself.
Jenny flashes her engagement ring, blinding the factory girls and giving Johnny’s bank balance a funny turn too. Kate’s not best pleased when Jenny reminds her that marrying her dad means she’ll become her step-mum. What Aidan thinks of it all isn’t recorded this week as he was mysteriously absent. Come to think of it, we haven’t seen Rita, Gail and Audrey for ages, nor Craig or Beth. Anyway, back to Jen-John. Johnny wants Jenny to sign a pre-nup as Kate warns her dad that Jenny’s a gold-digger. At first Jenny’s against it: “Who do you think you are, Kanye West?” she yells at Johnny.
Sally gets good news this week from her breast cancer check-up at the clinic who confirm she’s cancer free. She has a drink in the Rovers to celebrate and Jenny finds her there, thinking she’s skiving from work. Jenny’s contrite when she finds out where Sally’s been. Sally muses about mastectomy bras and this gives Jenny an idea – one she’s keen to start working on in the factory. She and Sally invite a group of women from the clinic to see the mastectomy bras that Jenny’s designed, and Alya’s not happy to have her nose pushed out of this new venture. So jealous is Anya that she lands Jenny right in it with Johnny, who also knows nothing about the new line of bras. Jonny arrives at the factory when Jenny’s in full flow with her sales pitch to the ladies from the clinic, and he’s got a new client with him he’s hoping to impress. The client is almost on the verge of walking out after seeing the gaggle of women chatting when they should have been working. But Jenny saves the day, gets the client to stay and impresses Johnny no end with her business nous and skill. The scene when Jenny closed the office door on Alya (Jenny inside the office with Johnny and the client, Alya on the factory floor) was wonderful.
Over at the Barlows, Tracy and Luke announce they’ve gone exclusive in the relationship department. Ken also has an announcement for them all, he’s put the ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ order in place in case he has another stroke and he’s also made his will. Adam is less than impressed to learn that, as one of Ken’s grandchildren and not Ken’s own child, he gets less from the will than Tracy, Peter and Daniel do when Ken pops off and dies. In fact, he gets much less. The paperweight that Ken bequeaths to Adam does little to steady his mood and he tells Todd later in the pub about Ken: “As far as I’m concerned, he can rot in hell.”
Over at the garage, Tyrone asks Phelan to put a quote in to fix the place up for Kev, who’s furious when he finds out. He tells Phelan he wants him nowhere near the garage and lashes out at Tyrone, giving him a split lip. Kev comes clean and admits the insurance isn’t going to pay out for the garage repairs as they reckon he torched the place himself. When Sally hears his plight she offers him seven thousand pounds, half of the cost of Sophie’s insurance bill from her accident in Miami. Kev comes up with a plan for Anna to sue David Platt for her injuries and at first Anna says she’ll do it but when she finds out that Kev’s ex-wife has given him the cash, she’s furious with Kev and rightly so.
Meanwhile in the Bistro, Kate works a trial shift behind the bar and decides to take a job there working with Robert and Nick. She hands in her notice at the factory and Johnny accepts it with good grace and lets his daughter go.
And finally this week, Chesney has his hair done in an effort to impress Sinead. “I want it all floppy on the top,” he tells David in the salon. David does wonders with Ches’ hair but alas, it’s not good enough to woo and win Sinead back. She has, after all, only eyes for Daniel now.
And that’s just about that for this week.
