In Underworld the day starts as normal, but it’s not long before Sally exclaims that she has lost her engagement ring. Danny doesn’t take the girls too seriously until Leanne realises her purse is missing too. It’s obvious that there is a thief at work, so Danny orders the girls to open their lockers. It comes to Kelly's turn and everyone is stunned to see all the loot sitting there. Kelly is utterly bewildered as Danny calls the police on her. Kelly is arrested and as she is frogmarched from the factory Lloyd catches sight of the commotion. She swears she is innocent but he is completely confused by his girlfriend’s arrest. Later that night he naively confides in Becky, who tries to kiss him. Will Lloyd reciprocate whilst Kelly is locked up in a cell for the night? Over in the Platts’, David comes home to find Sarah standing in the living room searching through the mail. There is a suspicious looking card addressed to Gail so Sarah opens it. The siblings share their shock as they read yet another card signed by ‘Richard’. Gail comes home after a drink in the pub with Sally, so Sarah tries to hide it from her mum as she doesn’t want her upsetting any more. But will poor Gail find it? And it’s delight all round as Roy’s Rolls gets the green light from the Health Inspector. Frankie and Roy are relieved but then realise that they will have to win back all the customers they have lost. Jack comes in to plead for Vera’s job back but will Roy relent? Also, Norris is out his wheelchair but he insists on going back to work even though Rita offers to give him time off until he recovers. Becky has been brought in for questioning and denies framing Kelly. As there is no other evidence to back up Kelly’s claims, the detective has no choice but to charge innocent Kelly with theft. Eventually she is released and Steve brings her back to Weatherfield where she wastes no time in confronting Becky. But Becky has the brass neck of denying everything, and even tells Kelly that she and Lloyd have been having an affair. Poor Kelly is at her wits end, but kind Joanne puts her up at her flat as Kelly feels she can’t go back to Lloyds. Later on Lloyd goes back to his flat to confront manipulative Becky over setting up Kelly. How will Becky react to Lloyd’s claims? Over in the salon, Sarah tells Grandmother Audrey about the latest card her mother has received. Sarah is really concerned about her mother, and is convinced she is just putting up a brave front for the family. Later that evening, Gail and David are relaxing at home when the phone rings; it’s Phil asking how she is. Although she is shocked to hear his voice, she tries to be polite. But David is furious that his mum is talking to the prime suspect, and pulls the phone cord out of the socket in disgust. And in Roy’s Rolls, Jack begs Roy to give Vera her job back although he will need to apologise to her first. Will Roy relent and give Vera another chance?
