Ivy hears from nephew Ian Latimer who is in England visiting from Australia and wants to see her. Susan realises that nothing is going to change Ken's mind. She packs her bags and moves into Mike's flat. Hilda is delighted to hear that her bureau is valuable. She books a holiday in Torquay on the strength of it. Later, Curly and Terry are stunned when an antique dealer tells them that the bill of sale doesn't relate to the bureau and offers them £110 for it. Ken tells Deirdre he's not going to fight Susan anymore. Ivy arranges for Ian to come to stay.

  • TV Times synopsis: Confusion over history results in Terry and Curly having to give Hilda some bad news.
