Panic for the Barlows
When Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) comes across Peter in Victoria Gardens, he is distressed to realise he is covered in blood, and calls an ambulance.
In the hospital, the doctors reveal Peter is potentially suffering from liver failure, his drinking taking him to a dark place.
Daniel lets Ken Barlow (William Roache) know what has happened, and the Corrie patriarch heads to the hospital to beg Peter to fight for his life.
Peter, however, seems dejected and insists the time has come to accept he is dying.
His family is even more panicked when they hear Peter has voluntarily left the hospital behind, refusing treatment.
When Carla Connor (Alison King) learns what has happened, she begs Peter to let her look after him – but he insists it's too late.
If Carla can't help save Peter, can anyone?
Imran gets in trouble
Toyah is thrilled to look after little Mason, but fails to notice her sister Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) watching on in distress as she coos over the baby.
Later, Mason gets taken back by social services, leaving Toyah hoping to foster again.
When Imran confesses he turned down a second chance to foster over fears they were moving too quickly, Toyah is seething.
He tries to ring the foster agency and reverse the decision, but they say it's too late.
Toyah is furious, and Imran realises he's made a seriously big mistake – are they on different pages in their relationship?

Adam storms off and confronts Gary in the furniture shop, accusing him of shifting Rick's body.
Meanwhile, Faye Windass (Ellie Leach) listens on and is surprised by what she hears.

When Paul gets arrested for assault, Billy is stricken, while Todd Grimshaw (Gareth Pierce) secretly hopes he might have broken them up.
However, the arrest only brings Paul and Billy closer together, as they realise they need to put their relationship first.
Summer (Harriet Bibby) is delighted to see their romance blossom, while Todd silently fumes.

Tim's toy box causes a ruckus
Trying to repair her relationship with her son, Elaine shows Tim all of the old toys he played with during his childhood.
However, the toys bring back bad memories for Tim, who admits he'd rather stash them in the attic.
Elaine tries to hide her disappointment, while Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) suggests they flog the items at a jumble sale.
Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove) buys the whole lot, but Tim is shocked to learn one of the toys is worth a whopping £2000.
They manage to buy the items back for just £30 and decide to re-sell the valuable toy to raise funds for little Ollie's charity.
Could the good deed help to bring Tim and Elaine closer together?
