The new week begins in Weatherfield with Peter explaining to Ken how desperate Toyah is for a baby and persuades him to lend him the money for a consultation at a private fertility clinic. When Peter announces he’s booked an appointment for this afternoon, Toyah’s thrilled. But when she witnesses Leanne forgiving Eva for her part in keeping Toyah and Peter’s relationship a secret, a jealous Toyah follows Leanne into the Victoria Court lift, where she rails at her for her jibe about her not being a mum. Suddenly the lift judders to a halt. Having discovered the alarm isn’t working and there’s no phone signal, the girls start to panic, especially when Leanne’s waters break!
Elsewhere After spending the night at Nathan’s, Bethany returns home and lies to Sarah and Gary, telling them that someone nicked her phone and she crashed on Mel’s sofa. But when Rana and Kate enquire after Bethany and reveal that they found her drunk in town before heading off with some bloke who she knew, Sarah’s fuming.
In the second visit to the cobbles tonight we find Nathan is luring Bethany deeper into his world. Sarah confronts her daughter about her goings on, who under pressure admits she stayed at Nathan’s flat, he’s her boyfriend and he rescued her when she collapsed.
