Bet is told that she could miss her lunchtime shifts if she doesn't want to see Des but Bet decides to stand up to him. Ken is furious when Weatherfield Recorder secretary, Sally Waterman, takes a copy of Ken's article to show Bob Statham before it goes to print. Statham tells Ken the article isn't good enough. Ken is amazed that Statham favours the advertisers rather than the readers. Statham demands Ken writes about "popular Mike Baldwin". Des asks Bet to come out with him for old time's sake. She agrees. Ken reluctantly rewrites his article, praising Mike's public spirit.
