Ivy tells Brian she's annoyed about being lied to about Audrey's visit to Canada. Don decides to organise a coach trip to Blackpool. Alec refuses to let him call it a Rovers' trip as he doesn't want his regulars all going off for the day. Percy moves back in with Emily. Alec has second thoughts about the trip when he realises they'll need drinks on the coach. Ivy is upset when Audrey continues to talk of Malcolm Reid as her brother-in-law. She tells her she's a liar; she knows the truth. Audrey tells her it's none of her business. Malcolm tells Alf he'll pay for them all to go on the Blackpool trip but Alf tells him he can't leave the shop. He then discovers that Audrey has agreed to go with him.
