Alf writes to "the editor" at the Weatherfield Recorder answering the damaging letters against him and putting the record straight. Audrey is furious that Brian is having a ball whilst Gail struggles with dirty nappies. Deirdre enjoys seeing the new caddish side of Ken and it reminds her of Billy Walker and Ray Langton. Alec assures Bet that he can afford to lend her the money. She thanks him but tells him that she can't accept it; it's too much money. Ken accepts Alf's letter and promises to print it. The brewery isn't happy when Bet tells them that she doesn't want the tenancy. George Newton tells her that she's not positive enough and tells her that he no longer wants a manager at the Rovers - it must be a tenancy.
