Whitney's new love interest Lee asks her if she'd like to go bowling, and she agrees. To Whitney's surprise, the date goes well and they end up sharing a kiss. Later, Whitney ignores Lauren as she concentrates on replying to a text from Lee. However, Whitney doesn't realise that all is not what it seems with Lee and he's setting her up. Rob is with the mysterious newcomer and tells him that he'll take over things from now on…
Meanwhile, Tanya is continuing to hide her health scare from her loved ones. When she heads back to the hospital to collect her test results, the doctor delivers heartbreaking news - confirming that she is suffering from cancer. As she arrives home, Tanya is still in shock and she breaks down in tears.
Elsewhere, it's the day of the charity fete on the Square and Jean is still feeling disappointed over the fact that she can't be the Pearly Queen. However, Alfie promises her that if she wants to be a Queen, she can be and he'll help her. At the same time, Pat isn't happy about being the Queen and regrets agreeing to the idea. When she turns up for the fete, she spots Jean coming out of The Vic in similar Pearly Queen clothes and is shocked by her cheek. As Pat storms off, Jean finds herself as the one and only Pearly Queen - to Norman's disappointment.
Also today, Rebecca comes along to the fete to support Ian but storms off when he guiltily confesses that Jane is not dead; Pat encourages a downbeat Dot to make a list of things she needs to do before she dies; Vanessa embarks on Michael's scheme by trying to get closer to Eddie; while Zainab and Syed seem to be on better terms as he helps her with work, but things turn sour again when he mentions his wedding plans.
