Abi hits the bottle after being snubbed by Peter, and it's only when she lashes out at Carla for helping Peter dangling by a string that Abi's true feelings become clear.

Realising that their romance could really work, Peter asks Abi to come on the trip with him, and she's thrilled.

But the news that his dad is leaving Weatherfield with Abi doesn't go down well with Simon.

Realising that he should be putting his son first, Peter tells Simon that he can come on the trip with him, and that Abi means nothing. But of course, Seb has heard everything... will he tell Abi?

A furious Abi hits out at Peter for his treatment of her and heads off to get drunk again... despite Peter trying to tell her that alcohol isn't the answer to her problems.

Meanwhile, a proud Simon can't wait to go away with his dad and is showing Aadi and Asha around the boat using a hurricane lamp that he has lit.

As they leave, the pair put the lamp out, leaving Simon alone on the boat. But tragedy soon follows when, in the darkness, someone knocks over the lamp and the smouldering wick from the lamp reignites.

Before anyone knows what is happening the boat is going up in flames, and a crowd is gathering around the inferno as Peter watches on, helplessly.
