As Andy drops Debbie off at the bus stop he insists that sleeping with her was a mistake and that it won’t happen again. Debbie is upset and goes to see Charity. Charity wants to know why Debbie is not at school but she is supportive when her daughter tells her that she has lost her virginity. Debbie tells her mum that she has met a nice boy but she doesn’t reveal who the mystery boyfriend is. Later, Andy is furious when he finds out that she has told her mum and insists that it's never going to happen again. After seeing her mum Debbie goes into the village and bumps into Ethan. When he asks how she is, she wastes no time in telling him that she has had sex with her boyfriend. Ethan attempts to warn her to be cautious about throwing herself at boys but Debbie doesn’t take kindly to his concern. That evening alone in their separate rooms Debbie and Andy are unable to sleep. Debbie goes into Andy and tells him that she is glad that she lost her virginity to him and doesn’t want him to feel bad about things. He is touched by her words and invites Debbie into his bed. Victoria tells Diane that marriage is stupid because as far as she's concerned the bride always seems to leave or die.

Louise is left concerned by her friend's negativity. Elsewhere, Val is delighted when she comes across the tickets for the trip to Egypt and confides in her son Paul that the tickets are for Mr and Mrs Blackstock. Val tells Paul this can mean only one thing - Rodney is going to propose to her. Rodney meanwhile continues to pine for Diane and is interested in what Paul has to tell him about Diane being depressed. Paul tells Rodney that Jack is too dull for Diane and Rodney nods in agreement. Carl tells Chas that Colleen has agreed to let him see his kids while she is away with Sadie but only on the condition that he takes them away on holiday by himself.
