As Eric waits for someone to tell him what's going on, Val is devastated and unable to face up to him, she runs out of the pub. A confused Eric bangs on the door to the cottage demanding she let him in, while inside a tearful Val struggles to figure out what to do. Feeling terrible about what she's putting him through, she finally confronts him, but is shattered when he reacts very badly to her confession and tells her to pack her things and leave. Realising how her actions have hurt and humiliated Eric, Val is on the warpath after Diane. However, Diane refuses to be held responsible, insisting Val's her own worst enemy and after a blazing row with her sister, Diane reveals she's had enough of the drama and she wants her out of her life and out of the pub. Meanwhile, at their consultation, Lexi and Carl are informed that there's a long wait for IVF and the alternative is too expensive. Lexi is gutted and tells Carl how useless she feels not being able to conceive. Carl feels terrible seeing how much it means to her, but still doesn’t commit to paying for the treatment. Elsewhere, Lily is angry with Edna for making her feel bad for having a good time and Eddy is delighted when Lily asks if she can join him on his travels. Also, Terry tells Brenda that he agreed to buy Louise’s half of the B&B if she drops her price.
