Following the previous days discussions an upbeat Adam heads over to Underworld. Once at the factory he meets up with Liam and Paul Connor and signs over his share of the factory to the two crafty brothers for the knockdown price of £80,000. With the deal done, the newly rich Adam heads to the Rovers for a celebratory drink where he informs the stunned locals that he has sold his birthright. How will Adam’s friends and family react to the news? Meanwhile, Frankie is amused by the deal and tells Liam that he has just gone into partnership with her ex- husband. Will Liam be able to mix business with pleasure? Elsewhere, a moody David continues to give mum Gail a hard time, the mother and son pair argue and David leaves the house in a huff. She confides in Audrey that David is suffering at the hands of the bullies again. Frustrated by the whole situation Gail is determined to get to the bottom of David’s moody behaviour and when he returns to the house she informs her petulant son that they are both going to visit the headmaster tomorrow and David must name his tormentors. Will the troubled teenager accept Gail’s solution? Meanwhile, Claire continues to behave erratically. She tells Ashley to have a rest from looking after baby Thomas and sends him to the pub to have a drink with pal Kevin. But with her husband out of the house, a clearly troubled Claire starts rifling through the drawers at home. The young mum finds a picture of her newborn son, she compares the picture to her baby and it’s clear she is troubled by what she sees. Also, Violet is concerned about how distracted Jamie seems to be at the moment and when an estate agent calls to see Fred at the Rovers, Liz is stunned to learn that the Rovers is going to be put up for sale.
