Elsie is shocked to discover Ivy is interested in buying No.5. Len rushes about trying to do the work of two. Deirdre shows Ivy and her husband Bert around No.5. Bert doesn't want to move but Ivy likes the modernised house. Gail doesn't like Suzie walking round the house in her underwear whilst Brian is there, but he quite likes it. Ivy accuses Bert of being stubborn and awkward. He realises he's going to have to give in. They offer Deirdre £7,000 for the house and she accepts. Len installs a sink in the factory. Vera is put out that Ivy is moving from Inkerman Street where they both live. Ivy asks Mike to lend her the deposit on the house for a lower rate of interest than a bank. He agrees to a £500 interest free loan on the condition she talks the girls into a new work roster. Suzie thinks Gail is chucking herself away on Brian. She introduces Elsie to her new man, fifty-two year old Paul Stringer. He runs a model agency. Alone in the factory working, Len suddenly collapses.
