Fred is still in turmoil after Audrey’s confession and his mind is not on plans for the joint stag and hen do later tonight. Bev meanwhile can’t wait and has all the Rovers staff working their socks off getting the place ready. Gail is worried about Audrey’s behaviour but whilst Audrey confesses she has had a row with Fred she keeps the details to herself. Later, as the party is about to start, Fred almost confesses to Bev but they are interrupted and he has to unburden himself on a disbelieving Ashley. Sally is delighted that Rosie and Craig have decided to join them in Paris and Rita is actually quite relieved that she won’t be having a house guest. Meanwhile the youngsters continue to plan their great escape. Ashley is trying his hardest with Claire but the extra effort is making her tetchy. Fred advises Ashley to concentrate more on being a husband than a psychiatrist. His advice works wonders and Claire even decides she feels up to going to the party. Norris is driving Rita mad as he prepares for the trip to Budapest but his efforts to learn Hungarian are at least keeping everyone amused.
