The Barlows start converting the kitchen at No.1. Mike prepares for a VIP visit. He leads the girls on to believe Royalty are coming before telling them it's a trade delegation. He hopes to get some overseas sales from the visit. He tells Ivy to make sure everything runs like clockwork. The girls think it's hysterical when Mike tells them the delegation will be Russian. Albert refuses to live amongst dust and gets Beattie Pearson to take him in. She is pleased to find Ken is altering the house as it will add value to her inheritance. Albert tells Beattie he's sold No.1 to Ken and she is furious. Fred puts £5 on himself to win the weigh-in as he knows he's going to win because of the coins. The girls threaten a sit-in strike when Mike refuses to pay their bonuses whilst they're cleaning the factory.
