Arthur Harvey tells Annie it's because of her that he and Nellie are splitting up; he told Nellie that Annie was a real lady - unlike her. He is drunk and Annie lets him stay in Billy's room for the night. With Ena gone, Minnie and Albert consider running the Community Centre together when they are married. Nellie turns up at the Rovers and finds Arthur in pyjamas. She tells him that she's contacting her solicitor for divorce, citing Annie. Albert tells the Bishops he doesn't want Ena's job because he doesn't want to give up his house. He tells Minnie the Bishops won't give him the job because he's too old. She sets off to visit Ena and tells him that when she returns she wants to know whose house they're going to live in. Arthur leaves the Rovers but is not returning to Nellie.
