Hilda is thrilled to be invited to the Lowthers' Ruby Wedding party but is worried when Mrs Lowther insists that she brings a man along. She invites Kevin but he doesn't want to stand the risk of bumping into Michelle Robinson. Rita is pleased when Alan tells her that he wants them to go on holiday together. She agrees. Brian feels Gail is overworked when she keeps snapping at him. Hilda asks Percy to escort her to the party, on the condition he doesn't talk about the War and they make it clear that they are only friends. He is delighted. Jenny refuses to go on holiday with Alan and Rita; she still blames Rita for stopping her singing. Gail breaks down and tells Audrey that she's pregnant and she doesn't know who the father is.
