Hearing that Minnie received a bottle of scotch from the Howards, Albert gives them socks but Elsie only gives him a box of tissues. Cyril tells Betty that Mrs Regan's benefit is being cut because it is suspected she is co-habiting with a window cleaner - Stan. Betty tells Billy and before long the entire Rovers knows. Alan rows with Elsie for giving Minnie their last bottle of scotch. Minnie tells Emily about Christine coming to see her. Alf informs Stan of the gossip about him.
