Billy returns, to Deirdre's delight. Ernie is annoyed that he and Emily have to clear up whilst Sheila is in bed. Jerry tries to talk to Mavis but she is short with him. Billy proposes to Deirdre and she accepts. Sheila makes Emily realise that she and Ernie are always falling out before she leaves for Sheffield. Jerry apologises to Mavis and tells her that his drinks were spiked. Mavis says the real him was talking last night and accuses him of living on memories of a woman he can't have. She asks him to leave her alone. Annie fears something is going on between Billy and Deirdre and takes to her bed. Bet is told they've won the competition - a holiday for two in the Bahamas.
