When Seb invites Faye to his family’s New Year’s Eve party, Anna reluctantly lets her go. She’s alone with Jack when she tumbles down the stairs in the dark and lies unconscious in the hallway.

Unable to wake her, frightened Jack lets himself out. In the Rovers, the regulars count down to midnight as Jack stands alone on the street, clearly scared.

Norris quizzes Jude closely and makes it clear he’s to look after Mary properly in South Africa, as she’s a dear friend. As Mary, Dev and the twins share an emotional farewell, Mary wonders if she’s doing the right thing as her friends gather in the Rovers to wish her well.

Clearly hurt, Simon tells Peter he saw him kissing his new girlfriend and realises she’s the reason for his return, not him.

Andy’s 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.

Elsewhere, Johnny suggests Jenny moves in with him.
