Eddie offers himself as a slave to Ena and Minnie for the day. They are surprised that he is a good cook as he makes the Christmas Day meal. The Bishops make the most of the children and are surprised when their father, Winston Foyle, arrives early having discharged himself from hospital. Jerry gives his lunch tickets to Ray and Len and shuts himself away in No.9 as Carlos entertains Mavis. Eddie is shocked when Bet agrees to spend the evening with him. Mr. Foyle takes the children home. Everyone eats so much at Blanche's they have no appetite for Annie's spread. Eddie takes advantage of a sudden blackout to sell the candles at a vast profit. Bet has such a good time at the Rovers in the blackout with a sing-song that she doesn't want to leave with Eddie.
