Steve starts work at MVB Motors. Kevin is annoyed that he has to train him. Raquel hosts a lingerie party at the Rovers run by her friend Gemma. Ivy goes to Don's local, The Rose and Thistle and gets drunk on her own. Steve resigns when Kevin is cold with him all morning. Roger Brookes tells Rita that there's been an offer on Ted's house of £55,000. Rita knows it's worth £20,000 more than that and says that she'd rather wait for a higher price. Roger is awkward as Philip Brookes wants a quick sale. Kevin tells Mike he's sick of being messed around by him and tells him that he's not sure he wants to run the garage any more. The women look at the lingerie, Mavis is shocked as she thought it was going to be a Tupperware party. Kevin is pleased when Mike gives him a £20 rise. He thanks Steve for giving him the push he needed to confront Mike and takes him back on. Ivy gets drunk at the party and starts insulting Gail who says that she's always too drunk to look after the children. Jim ... Written by GusF
