Hilda goes to put bets on for herself and Stan but puts everything on her horse. Stan is livid when his horse comes in. Ernie finds out from Alf that Andy doesn't work at his dad's stall. Andy admits it was a bargaining tactic and they agree on £10 a week. Ivy accuses Peggy of siding with her boyfriend - Ken.
