Curly makes Terry see that they must give Hilda all £110 from the bureau. Ian Latimer arrives at No.5. Ivy is thrilled to see him. Gail is disturbed by the way he flirts with her. Hilda isn't bothered that she's only got £110 for the holiday as she fears that she'll be too alone in Torquay. She visits Stan's grave and tells him about the holiday. Mike agrees to stay at the Portway Hotel so Susan can get married from the flat. Ian impresses Brian with all his tales about sunny Perth. Gail tells him that she's sick of people running down Britain. Ken realises he's put Deirdre through a lot of stress so books a family holiday.
