When Seb calls at Number 13 and invites Faye to his family’s New Year’s Eve party, Anna reluctantly lets her go. Without Faye and Gary, and Kevin out on a breakdown, Anna is alone with Jack when she tumbles down the stairs in the dark and lies unconscious in the hallway.
Unable to wake her, a frightened Jack lets himself out. In the Rovers, the regulars count down to midnight as Jack stands alone on the street, clearly scared. Will anyone come to Anna’s rescue?
Meanwhile, Mary’s friends gather in The Rovers to wish her well, but she’s starting to wonder whether she’s really doing the right thing.
Elsewhere, clearly hurt, Simon tells Peter that he saw him kissing his new girlfriend and realises she’s the reason for his return, not him. Peter is shocked.
Also today, Andy is scared witless as he questions his future on the street. Desperate to get away, Andy phones a mate in Newcastle and asks him if he can crash on his floor. While Steph, Tracy and Luke celebrate New Year in the bistro, Andy slips out. Will he make his getaway?
