Len agrees to Eddie breaking the chimney breast when Mavis says she'll pay for the redecoration. Len tells Rita that Ray has got a girl pregnant in Holland and wants a quick divorce so he can marry her. She tells Deirdre. Elsie is furious when Mike orders her to be at work an hour earlier than usual to go through an order. RSPCA man Harry Scott takes an interest in Mavis's bird. He puts his hand in the chimney hole and produces a budgie. She is thrilled when Harry says she can keep it. Ken apologises to Deirdre for his reaction and tells her he was acting out of self-protection. He says he doesn't care if Ray cites him. He doesn't want to lose her.
