PlotEdit

Alma moves builders into the cafe flat. Rita and Mavis are cool towards each other. Stella Rigby tries to find out how Bet is coping. Bet tells her that Paul has been looking after her but doesn't tell her about their nights out. Stella invites her out for a girls' night. Mavis accuses Rita of being snide and small-minded over her move. At the office, Ray Griffiths tells Derek his blood pressure and heart rates are too high. Ray is worried about his ability to cope with stress. Alma tells Gail that she's having to sell her house because of her divorce and is moving into the flat over the cafe. She is going to work at the cafe and sack Phyllis. Derek is moved from sales to despatch and is furious. He refuses to take the insult lying down.
