George Wardle starts at Baldwin's Casuals as van driver. He is pleased to see Ivy but she can't understand how he knows her. Hilda reads the Rovers staff's tea leaves: Wilf Starkey to travel East, Betty to come into Silver and Bet will hear from a relative. Ivy realises that she knows George from Church. Andrea tells Harry she wants to leave school and get a job but he wants her to go to University. Mavis writes back to Derek and tells him that she'd still like to be friends. She wants to go on holiday with Rita but Rita isn't keen. Andrea reveals that she's got her exam results and they're awful: 'E' in Physics, 'O' in Maths and Chemistry. Alf invites Rita to go on holiday with him. She tells him that she's going with Mavis. Bet decides to give Hilda's predictions a helping hand to shut her up.
