Ivy and Vera refuse to talk to each other. Percy visits the Street, telling everyone he's having a great time and is enjoying himself although in reality he's lonely and depressed. Curly tells his parents he won't be seeing them. Shirley feels bad as she's cutting him off from his family. Alf books a holiday in the Lake District to please Audrey. Shirley tells Mr Watts that she doesn't want to come for lunch as she didn't think she'd feel comfortable. She tells him they all need time to come to terms with the situation. Don tells Ivy it's stupid not talking to the Duckworths; they're acting as if they're children. Don calls at No.9 and flatters Vera, taking the blame for the whole incident. They are all carried away with him and are all reconciled. Audrey tells Alf they can't go on holiday - Malcolm Reid is coming over to stay.
