Bet has a date with the photographer Norman Hill. Peter Barlow reveals he has a girlfriend called Jenny. The sales figures are down so Mike pushes the staff harder. Edith Tatlock phones Peter with his 'O' Level results. He's disappointed with them but can't bring himself to tell Ken. Annie and Bet are furious to see Betty and Eddie are on the magazine cover. Elsie is pleased when Ron Mather calls again. Norman apologises to Bet about her not being on the cover and invites her out to the Gatsby Club but she refuses. Ken is annoyed that Peter tells Albert more about himself than Ken. Peter's behaviour surprises him when he's uptight. Ken swears to find out what's going on.
