Having telephoned her Mum, Maria tells Audrey that neither she nor Kirk had measles vaccinations when they were children. Audrey reveals that baby Bertie has been in hospital with measles and that she must have caught it from him. Maria is shocked to hear that Daniel failed to have Bertie vaccinated, whilst Gary is livid. A furious Gary rails at Daniel, blaming him for the fact Maria has lost the baby.
Sally get's a big surprise. Returning from Gina’s, Sally makes it clear to Tim that he’s still in the dog house. Tim assures her his divorce is all in hand and he’ll soon be shut of Charlie. But when Charlie summons Tim to The Rovers and admits she hasn’t signed the divorce papers as she reckons they should make a go of their marriage, Sally is horrified to realise everyone knows Tim is a bigamist.
Geoff fears Yasmeen will see through his tricks. As Alya assures Yasmeen her drinking is fine, Geoff does his best to undermine her confidence. Peter asks Yasmeen to join him at his alcoholic support group. With Geoff’s words ringing in her ears, Yasmeen agrees.
Meanwhile, in a bid to cheer up Gemma, Chesney offers to look after the children while she goes for a drink with Emma.
Elsewhere, on the advice of the marriage guidance counsellor, Steve and Tracy make and effort to be nice to each other but it’s clear they’re both out of their comfort zone.
