Hilda is furious when Stan expects her to take in washing. Annie's cousin Charles Beaumont arrives. She is delighted. Mr Pritchard calls to tell the Ogdens that they've won third prize in a "Loving Cup Shandies" competition - a second honeymoon night in a five-star hotel with £25 spending money. Deirdre worries about being left on her own in the house. Hilda reveals her winning slogan: "Be a mistress as well as a wife and your husband'll still be your boyfriend". Stan doesn't want to go and suggests she goes on her own. She tells him that he's going - even if she has to chain him to her.
