Bet is quite pleased that Mike is subsidising her rent but agrees to look for somewhere else to live. Len tells Alf he's pleading "not guilty" in court on the charge of being drunk and disorderly on Alf's stag night and is defending himself. Bet tells Mike he can continue to pay the extra £2 a week but he's not getting anything from her. He tells her she's down as hospitality and entertainment on his tax returns. She decides to pay the extra in future so the Roberts' can't use it to evict her. Derek tells Mavis he never wanted to cause her pain over the house. He tells her that his mother is making his life difficult again and is pressing him to marry Beryl Challis. He asks her advice and she tells him to stand up to his mother. Renee is forced to tell Alf about Mike subsiding Bet's rent. He is horrified that they're living with a kept woman. Beryl catches Derek with Mavis and knows who Mavis is.
