Phyllis offers Percy a room at her bungalow. Alec panics when the burglar alarm goes off, driving the customers away. Ivy tells Brian she's remarrying, expecting him to object but he tells her that he's pleased. Deirdre tells Emily that Percy's flat won't be ready for two months, not two weeks. Emily accuses Percy of deliberately misleading her. She feels bad when he takes offence. Vera is thrilled that Ivy is marrying Don. Jason Stubbs asks at The Kabin for a paper round but they don't need anyone at the moment. Don tells Ivy his mother wants to meet her and asks Jack to be his best man. Jack readily accepts. Emily tells Percy that he can still move in.
