PlotEdit

Len refuses to let Rita sing at the Gatsby Club as its New Year's Eve, promising her a big night out at a new club. Ken returns from Glasgow with Susan Barlow. Len realises the club he was planning to take Rita to requires tickets to be booked in advance. Ken introduces Susan to Deirdre and the pair get on well with each other. Rita is furious when she learns tickets for the new club are sold out and that Len has decided to settle for the night in the Rovers instead. Ken is put out at Susan's sexy clothes when she dresses up for a Community Centre disco. He and Deirdre decide not to go out but see the New Year in together at No.1. Alf is chosen to let the New Year in at the Rovers. He gets kidnapped by a group of three women going to a party at Molly Coggan's house in Bessie Street. Fred goes looking for him and goes to the party too. Fred phones Len and alerts him about the party - he and Alf are the only men. Len sneaks out with Bert and Eddie. Rita, Ivy and Renee realise their men have deserted them.
