Percy invites Emily to the bowls outing after having told Phyllis there were no more tickets left. Gail advises Phyllis to finish with him. Bet returns to find Jack and Gloria behind the bar. Betty tells her that the Brewery have made her manager. Bet accuses her of shopping her to the Brewery. Bet refuses to tell the Brewery that she's back or work behind the bar. Audrey arrives at the Tilsleys' house with her bags as boyfriend Paul has thrown her out of their flat and changed the locks. Phyllis discovers there's loads of tickets left for the outing. She tells Percy that he's horrible for lying to her. Gail agrees to let Audrey stay. Bet has finished with Frank and wishes she'd never gone on the cruise. She feels that she's going to be sacked, but she's going down with all guns blazing.
