Florrie asks Len to fix her up with a new fireplace before hearing that Elsie is keeping house for him. Concepta meets a distressed Nellie and tells Harry to sort Len out. When Len tells Concepta he's not bothered which woman he has and that he expects affection from them all, including her, she breaks down and strikes him. Florrie snubs Len and takes her business to his boss. Harry confronts Len who refuses to apologise to Concepta. When he insults her they fight. Harry leaves him unconscious on the floor.

- TV Times synopsis: Len's new domestic arrangements - and the goings-on at No. 11 - are now the main topics of conversation in Coronation Street. But gossip has a way of leading to personal insults and open threats. Soon two of the oldest friends in the Street find themselves past the point of self-control which ends in a violent clash.
- Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 8,053,000 homes (joint 2nd place with Episode 138). This was the only week in the first half of 1962 in which neither episode of Coronation Street made the number one spot in the charts and this was only due to the official ratings combining the viewing figures of a political broadcast on the government's budget on both BBC and ITV to attain a figure of 9,074,000 homes watching. As the Television Mail in its issue of 22nd June 1962 pointed out, 6,125,000 homes saw this programme on ITV and the remainder on the BBC, meaning that for a programme broadcast on a single channel, Coronation Street was still the most-watched.
