Alf tells Renee he doesn't like her driving with another man but she refuses to stop them. Bert works out for Brian how much his weekly outgoings will be. Stan and Hilda decide to invite Eddie to move in as they feel they're the nearest to family he's got. Betty worries about the Fletchers. Ken advises her to report their mother to the NSPCC. Brian discovers they'll have £17 a week left to live on. Gail is sure they'll cope. When Renee spends all morning driving, Alf storms out of the shop and drinks in the Rovers. He worries about money; he wanted £16,000 for the shop and is having to find £28,000 for the new shop. Hilda offers Eddie her front bedroom for £20 a week. He agrees. She makes sure he pays the rent to her and not Stan. Renee tells Alf he's pathetic being jealous of Jim Lorimer. He forces her to make a decision over accepting the Bannisters' offer. She does and they are reconciled. Brian and Gail decide not to buy the house. The Fletchers' "uncle" - Reg Sudworth - tells Betty to keep her nose out of the family's affairs.
