Not someone to let anything get in his way, Tony is hell-bent on buying the garage from Kevin this week. There is just one thing standing in his way – Kevin, who is equally determined not to sell. Move over David and Goliath.
In his bid to get his hands on the garage, Tony tries every trick in the book and even invites a surveyor round to assess the value of the business while Kevin is out. However, when Kevin returns, he is not best pleased to find the pair on his premises. Will Tony ever give up or has he just not found Kevin’s price yet?
The situation threatens to spiral out of control when Tony enlists the help of impressionable Rosie. Unaware that she is being used as a pawn in the battle, she agrees to get him the client list. How low will Tony stoop to get what he wants?
Meanwhile, Lloyd is getting himself in a bit of a state, as it seems that Michelle has told everyone in the street about Steve’s plans to propose. On top of this, Becky is working behind the bar in the Rovers. How will Steve react when he gets back to discover the girl he had a sordid fling with is now working with his wife?
Lloyd tells Becky she should leave the job before Steve comes home, but with Michelle determined to keep her on, it seems Lloyd will have a fight on his hands.
When Steve does finally return he is like a rabbit caught in the headlights. Half the street knows about his “secret” proposal plans. Furious, he confronts Lloyd who defends his actions by saying at least he never let it slip about Steve’s night with Becky. Steve is beside himself and vows he never wants to marry again now and it’s all Lloyd’s fault.
How will Michelle take the news that it’s all off?

What will Sean do now?
