Percy plans to escort Emily for the day but she spends her time with Mavis. Sandra Stubbs agrees to a night out with Gloria. Mavis is fed up when Percy latches onto Emily and her. Phyllis and Arnold flirt with each other. Malcolm Reid tells Audrey he's returning to Canada soon and wants her to come with him. Alf decides to drive to Blackpool to surprise Audrey and Malcolm. Jenny, Martin, Shirley and Curly spend the day in the Pleasure Beach. The Tilsleys and Brennans spend the day on the beach picnicing. Nicky is fed up as Don plays with all his toys. Audrey is flattered but embarrassed by Malcolm's attention. He tells her he came over to see what her marriage is like and it's obviously bad. He urges her to be selfish. Alf searches Blackpool for Audrey and sees her sitting intimately in a pony carriage with Malcolm. Curly feels sick after the crowd eats and eats all day. Audrey refuses to leave Alf for Malcolm, telling him Alf is her husband and she intends to make their marriage work. Phyllis and Arnold decide to stay in Blackpool and let the coach go.
