Steve secretly agrees to take the rap for the robbery when Kim visits him in custody. After all she could have walked away and left him when he gambled and lost her fortune on the stock market. It's a selfless act on Steve's part - and fits in beautifully with the self-preservation plan Kim's already put into action, for herself! Robert puts Ned's boxing lessons to good use when he confronts Donna about bullying Andy. When the wicked Windsor girl lunges at him he lets her have a right hook. Viv is incensed, Sarah and Jack livid and Ned is left in the dog-house. Tricia puts the spark back into her granddad Alan when she arranges with Ashley for the village hall to be turned into a temporary bar while The Woolpack is renovated. Butch tells Lisa that while he did once fancy Mandy he is in control of his feelings and knows the wedding is only a business transaction. But is he really telling the truth?
