The Websters move into No.11. Alf is referee at the Pub Olympics. Percy spends the day trying to get his loudhailer off him. Fred returns to the Rovers where he plans to take things easy but Billy sets him to work on the cellar straight away. Elaine Pollard finds the day boring, especially when she's tied to Curly for the three-legged race. They come in last and Brian and Gail win. Debbie enjoys nest-making at No.11. Bet tries to enter the egg and spoon race with an egg stuck on a spoon with chewing gum but is forced to use a standard egg. She comes in last. Vera wins after knocking an egg off the woman in front. She is disqualified and Hilda is declared the winner. Betty wins the wellie-throwing contest. Percy finally gets the megaphone off Alf by pushing him into the tug-of-war. The Rovers team wins the tug-of-war and the Olympics overall.
