Gail tells him he can see Nicky whenever he wants to. Alan cancels a date with Rita as he can't face her. She fears he's gone off her. Bet tells Sally that she's going to have to go back to only working evenings. Sally is furious as she planned to use her money to help rent a flat. She resigns. Kevin tells Hilda he's marrying Sally.
