Mike tells Cheryl Crossley her designs are too complicated. Susan calls the company "Hopscotch". She asks Ivy to look at the designs for her opinion. Rita hears that Jenny is keen on Martin and she's been entertaining him behind her back. Betty warns Bet that she thinks Alec has designs on the Rovers. Bet tells her that she knows Alec is only interested in her because she's a landlady but she enjoys going out with Alec - he's a laugh. Rita tells Jenny that she's welcome to have friends round but she'd like to know about them. Ivy advises Cheryl and Susan about the designs, she feels they would be easy to make if they're less complicated. Mike is annoyed that his objections are being ignored. Susan rows with him, telling him that she's sorting things out for herself. Martin calls on Jenny and apologises to her for upsetting her. They agree to start going out together. Alec takes Bet for a night out. He tells her that he hopes they have a future together. He is hurt when she tells him that she knows he's interested in her as she's a landlady. She is confused when he walks out in anger, telling her that he's fond of her as a woman.
