Finally it’s moving day for Keith and Craig. The removal men are loading up the van but Keith is worried as Craig is nowhere to be seen. Sally suggests to a shocked Keith that Craig could have gone to look for Rosie in France. The removal men’s protests fall on deaf ears as Keith starts dragging boxes out of the partially loaded van in a frantic attempt to find Craig’s passport. David comes up with the crafty idea of talking Gail into letting Craig crash on their sofa until Rosie returns. David is surprised to find his plans are met with some opposition and Craig ends up barricading himself inside number 6. Will Charlie and Keith be able to get him out? Shelley decides to have a talk with Bev about the match-making incident with Steve. Meanwhile, Liz is quizzing Steve about Shelley. The next time Steve comes into the Rovers for a drink, he and Shelley are so at ease with each other that Bev thinks her plan has worked. She sees with satisfaction that Charlie has clocked it too, and she can’t help rubbing it in. Despite still being barred, Tracy comes into the Rovers to find Charlie and she is caught by Shelley. She pretends she came in to apologise to Shelley but Charlie insinuates Shelley won’t let Tracy back in the pub because Shelley wants him all to herself. The instant this comment is made, Shelley un-bars Tracy and walks away, determined not to be drawn any further into Charlie’s mind-games.
