Ritchie Levitt tells Maggie he has good news for Norma about her dad. Ray and Sue get caught in the rain at Heaton Park. Hilda finds out about what Elsie is having done at No.11 when she sees the bath getting taken in. Elsie wants black wallpaper in the bathroom. Norma discovers Jacko is coming out next week and knows where she lives. Sue takes Ray home to meet her father Tommy and he and Ray take the mickey out of Sue's poshness. Hilda and Elsie argue over Hilda's snide comments about the bathroom suite. Maggie realises Norma is lying to her when she denies seeing Ritchie.
