Mavis is a bag of nerves at the talent concert, fearing the turns will be awful. Billy acts as Master of Ceremonies at the concert. Percy, as "Old Enoch", starts the concert with his farmyard impersonations. They are awful but he thinks the act went down well. Alf tells jokes but none of his jokes are funny. Curly sings a song, "My Heart is a Bridge" accompanied by his guitar. Kevin and Terry harmonise with percussion. Vera and Ivy dress as tramps and sing "We're a Couple of Swells". Gail looks after Nicky whilst the family are at the concert. George Hepworth calls on her and tells her he fancies her. She is frightened and tries to fight him off as he drags her to the floor.

- TV Times synopsis: When Mavis Riley agreed to organise the 'Olympics' concert, she had no idea of the talents and temperaments she would have to cope with. Percy Sugden opens the show in the guise of Old Enoch, and Alf Roberts treats the Rovers regulars to his own brand of comedy. But there's a shock for stay-at-home Gail Tilsley when someone she admires becomes over-amorous.
