Sally considers buying No.13 when Hilda marries Tom Hopwood. Ivy is annoyed when Vera spreads it around that she's courting. Tom tells Hilda that he's moving to Formby with or without her. Don Brennan and Ivy arrange another date. She is relieved he wasn't put off her by the Duckworths. Hilda realises she misses having someone to talk to but doesn't know what to do. Alec gives Bet the Rovers as a wedding present. He tells her that it's hers to do with as she pleases and she's the boss. Hilda tells Tom she can't marry him; everything important that's ever happened to her has happened in Coronation Street and she can't leave. She is sad that he's leaving anyway and they part company.
