Molly has told Tyrone that she no longer loves him and he’s shocked. Tyrone’s world falls apart as she coldly explains that she’s changed and the marriage is over.
He also accuses her (correctly) of being involved with someone else but Molly feigns offense.
He tries to tell her that he thought they’d be like Jack and Vera but she says they were no great couple as they were always at each other’s throats. She then tells him that she didn’t look forward to being stuck in their little house while she watched him get fatter every year.
“You think I’m a cow,” she says as she reads everyone’s minds.
The breakup spills out in the street as she packs her bags and walks out. Then everyone hears the news that it’s over between them. Who needs Facebook?
Steve celebrates his new-found singledom by getting wasted with Lloyd, Theresa, and one time one night stand Kelly Crabtree. They eventually leave the Rovers in favour of a night on the town. Lloyd is reluctant. This will not end well.
Sian is under the impression that when you post your sexual activity on Facebook, it’s private. Anyway, she wants to run away but both Sophie and Ryan offer her shelter at theirs. Ryan thinks Michelle won’t mind.
Anna misses Gary and worries to Eddie that he’s turning into a man who won’t want to watch Cash in the Attic with his mum. He does send a photo of himself to her phone. He’s in his new regiment, The Fightin’ Gingers (it’s the one Prince Harry serves in) and his beret is doffed incorrectly. If this were my time, he’d have been shot by now.
Anyway, to mitigate the empty nest syndrome, Anna is taking up Salsa dancing.
And This Happened
Audrey is talking about doing mobile hair service for the elderly but David doesn’t care as his mum is throwing him out as soon as the house is sold. That’s why he plans to sabotage every prospective buyer.
Natasha tries to talk sense into David: “You have to let your mum live her life, David. Besides, you want to get back together with Tina? You might want to show her how you’ve matured and don’t have any intention of remaining an overgrown mummy’s boy your entire life. It’s sad and desperate. Now excuse me while I go throw myself at Tony Gordon.”
This does not deter David at all but Gail seems to be softening on the house sale as she’s looking at old family photos, much to Joe’s dismay.
