Hilda tells Stan that she wants the outside of No.13 repainted and gives him money to buy a bright colour. Lorry driver Les Charlton fancies Gail but is too shy to flirt with her. Eddie tells Stan that he'll get the paint for free from the tip. Gail is upset that Brian has decided to stay in Qatar for another two months. She feels that he doesn't want to come home. Eddie and Stan mix all the different coloured paints together. Betty is shocked when old flame Ted Farrell turns up after thirty-five years - he is the father of Gordon Clegg. She never thought that she'd see him again. Gail employs Jill Mason as a childminder whilst Jackie Moffatt is away. Ted tells Betty that he read about her attack whilst visiting his sister. He tries to explain why he never returned to her after the War. She can't bring herself to tell him that he has a son. Hilda approves of Eddie and Stan's "Jamaican Sun" paint. Les invites Gail out for a drink. She agrees, deciding to have some fun. Betty tells Annie that she doesn't know if she should tell Ted about Gordon.
