Martin swears he never touched the coupon. Hilda refuses to stand by and let Martin be blamed, but she can't find the courage to tell the girls she is to blame. She confesses to Mike and he agrees to tell the girls. Mike gets the girls to drop their ideas of a lynching mob before telling them it was Hilda. When Ivy and Vera threaten her, Mike tells them that he'll sack them if they touch her; Hilda only meant it as a joke. Annie throws a hen party for Emily. Rita toasts Emily. Arnold has his stag night in the Rovers. His best man George Turner gets him drunk. The factory girls send Hilda to Coventry and refuse to work with her. Mike is forced to sack her. Arnold falls into a drunken sleep in the Rovers.
