The Sunday papers carry reports of Philippa's engagement. Annie is horrified by the reports of fun-loving Philippa. She blames Dennis for introducing them, Elsie for letting Dennis go to London and Jack for driving Billy away. Billy phones to confirm that he is engaged. The GPO decides there are too many "Coronation Street's" in the area and they should be renamed. Ken buys a scooter and shocks Martha by giving Minnie a ride. Frank reveals that there are eight "Coronation Street's" in the district and seven of them have to go.
