As Ashley and Claire arrive at court they’re told if there’s any chance of coming to an arrangement with Matt they should do it now. It’s the hardest thing Ashley’s ever had to do as he tells the judge Matt can see Joshua once a month for an hour. Initially Matt’s not happy with this but when Ashley tells him his final offer is two hours a month he accepts. An uneasy truce is brokered but how will Ashley tell Josh he’s got another daddy? Charlie tries to apologise properly to Shelley in a bid to stop her spilling the beans to Tracy, but Shelley wants to leave Weatherfield with a clear conscience and tells Tracy she should know the truth. How will Tracy react to the news of her boyfriend’s indiscretion? Fred and Bev realise they’re going to need another pair of hands at the pub with Shelley leaving and decided they could do a lot worse than Liz McDonald. Liz is thrilled thinking she’s being offered the job of manager, will Fred have the heart to put her right? Elsewhere Danny tells Janice she’s overstayed her welcome at the flat and Nathan worries that Frankie isn’t as pleased to see him as he is he.
