Having slept together the previous evening, Steve and Kelly guiltily regret their indiscretion and it’s with only a slightly bruised ego that Steve agrees with the flighty machinist that it was a mistake and they should keep their night of passion to themselves. The pair vow never to mention it again. Meanwhile, having left the scene of her accident last night, a worried Ronnie keeps the hit and run collision to herself and manages to put a brave face on the situation when she later patches up her differences with Steve. However, Ronnie is stunned when she sees a newspaper report asking for help in tracking down a hit and run driver who fled the scene of a fatal accident. Is Ronnie responsible for someone’s death and if so, how will she react? Meanwhile, Keith is still seething about his roof. He has nailed a tarpaulin down to keep the rain out but knows this is not a long term solution. However, his mood is lifted when he observes Charlie and Jason replacing the missing tiles. Feeling he has won, he heads off to the Rovers for a celebratory drink. His joviality is soon ended when Charlie enters the bar and makes a shock announcement that leaves Keith not only needing a new roof but also a whole new house to go with it. A thrilled Tracy suddenly realises the truth behind Charlie’s new business deal. Elsewhere, in the wake of his divorce, Danny throws himself into his work at Underworld and after not hearing from his father, Sean wonders if his dad will attend his Aunt Betty’s funeral.
