Roy Cropper's mum Sylvia (Stephanie Cole) has spoken of little else but Milton since meeting the rich American on a cruise last month, but the realities of a long-distance romance begin to hit home in the coming days.
Sylvia will soon be left fuming when she discovers that Roy (David Neilson) has put a bar on Milton's number to prevent further huge bills for international calls.

Upset over Milton's lack of contact, Sylvia throws all of her efforts into her music contest with Norris Cole (Malcolm Hebden) at The Rovers.
However, just as the battle between the competitive pair is about to begin, Sylvia is overjoyed as Milton appears at the pub unexpectedly - having travelled all the way from the US to see her. Is love in the air for Sylvia?
These scenes air on Friday, January 27 at 7.30pm on ITV1.
