In the pub, Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) tells Daisy and Glenda about her plans to host a speed-dating night. Glenda thinks it's a great idea, while Daisy smiles through gritted teeth.

Jenny heads out to dinner with Rita Tanner (Barbara Knox) and Daisy goes away for the night with Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott), so a glammed up Glenda agrees to host the speed-dating night herself.

But later, with the pub closed, Glenda heads through to the bar to find masked burglars raiding the till. One of the men orders Glenda to get down on the floor, and a terrified Glenda does as she's told. As the robbers leave with the takings, a tearful and panicky Glenda calls the police.

Jenny returns to find they've been burgled, and although Glenda puts on a brave face, Jenny insists she takes the morning off. But Glenda feels terrible when Paul and Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) call in to collect Paul's laptop, only to learn it's been stolen.

With the pub closed, Glenda offers Jenny and Daisy a nightcap, but when she walks through to the bar, she relives the awful events of the night before, and it's clear she's struggling to cope beneath her bubbly façade. Will Glenda open up about her trauma?

2. Paul Foreman devastated by new setback as Summer Spellman exits

Summer books her flight to Boston, and Billy agrees to cook a roast dinner as a celebration. But when Bernie Winter (Jane Hazelgrove) takes Paul to his speech therapist appointment, it's confirmed that his speech and ability to eat solid food have deteriorated.

It's suggested that Paul should start using a feeding tube, and Paul and Bernie return home and break the news that he can no longer eat solid food as he could choke.

Paul assures Billy and Summer that if they liquidise his food he'll be fine, but as the family, alongside Todd Grimshaw (Gareth Pierce), tuck into their meal, Paul eats his bowl of pureed food, and as the others clear away the plates, Paul fights back tears.

The following day, Billy, Paul and Todd bid an emotional farewell to Summer as she sets off for Boston. It remains to be seen whether she'll be back as she shares a heartfelt hug with Paul, but we later see Paul playing back some of his pre-recorded messages.

Billy reckons it still needs some work. But with the laptop later stolen, will the precious messages be lost forever?

Can Damon talk his way out of it, or will Sarah uncover his dodgy job for Harvey Gaskell (Will Mellor)? By the end of the week, Sarah asks estranged husband Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) if they can postpone the sale of the flat for now.

He later tells solicitor Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) that he's happy to pay whatever it costs to clear his name.

Nina confides in Dee-Dee that she's worried about Roy's sleepwalking, and wonders how on earth he'll pay his legal fees if he ends up in court over Lauren Bolton's (Cait Fitton) murder. How far will things go against Roy with the police?

Before the robbery, Jenny and Daisy are left horrified when Christina texts to say she's coming to stay for two weeks. Ryan is shocked when he sees Daisy telling her mum she's not welcome, adding that Christina should visit her friend in Amsterdam instead.

Christina comes to The Rovers and explains that her passport has expired, and she's nowhere else to stay. When Ryan insists Christina should stay for a drink, as it's the least they can do after she lent Daisy and Jenny the money to buy the pub, Christina is intrigued.

Will she blow Daisy's cover? It looks like Christina will stick around, as she's later seen taking a shine to a man with a tattoo at the speed-dating event. But can she be trusted to keep quiet over the pub?
