Annoyed that his plan backfired Charlie knows he’s going to have to work harder to get Maria’s attention. As he watches her go out, he makes his excuses to Tracy and heads over to the flat. Charlie’s calm and calculated as he stages a burglary; taking bank cards and jewellery, emptying drawers and smashing up electricals. As he leaves bags a bottle of wine and smiles at his work before using a crow bar to damage the locks. How will Maria react when confronted by the devastation? Away from the street, Fiz is full of the joys as she wakes up in the holiday cottage but her enthusiasm is dampened when the others veto her idea of a day trip in favour of a drinking session at the pub. Fiz is doubly annoyed when Kirk won’t back her up, but feeling sorry for Fiz, Molly decides to join her on her walk with Monica the dog. It’s a prickly atmosphere as the not so best of friends set out. At the Rovers, Michelle’s presence is continuing to ruffle feathers. Liz is intent on making life difficult for her as she observes her flirtatious ways. But Steve’s already under her spell and Liz’s boyfriend Vernon makes it clear he’d like a bit of extra curricular activity as he gives her hands on tips at pulling a pint. And Dev rushes off to Sunita’s in high spirits when he gets a call saying she wants to tell him something. Has Dev won his wife back?
