Having spent the night apart, Steve and Ronnie fail to reconcile their differences when they once again clash. This latest spat ends with the warring couple deciding to call an end to their tempestuous relationship. Feeling they may have been too hasty, Steve repeatedly attempts in vain to contact Ronnie, who is ignoring his calls. The frustrated minicab boss seeks solace in the Rovers, where he bemoans his plight to a sympathetic Kelly. Finding comfort in each other’s current domestic doom, Kelly and Steve head back to his flat to continue pouring over the ruins of their relationships. The booze flows as the pair begin to flirt with one another. Are Steve and Kelly about to give in to temptation? Meanwhile, Eileen talks to Ronnie and persuades her to give Steve another chance. Later on, whilst driving her cab, Ronnie is distracted while using her mobile phone to leave Steve a message. Her attention is so focused on the phone call she fails to avoid an object in the road and a heavy collision follows. What has Ronnie run into and how will she react to the accident? Elsewhere, having still not been paid for his work to Keith’s roof, Charlie makes plans to talk to Keith’s landlord in order to settle the debt. The bully boy builder returns later and smugly informs girlfriend Tracy that his meeting went well and he has sealed a new business deal, but he is going to keep the exact details of the contract a secret. Tracy’s intrigued, just what has mischievous Charlie been up to this time? Meanwhile, Frankie and Danny’s divorce is finalised when they both receive their Decree Absolutes. Leanne is pleased that Danny is finally free from his now ex-wife, whilst Frankie is in a more reflective mood and decides to head to her villa in Spain alone, leaving Nathan behind.
