PlotEdit

Alec finds it hard coping with the staff without Bet's management. Ivy begins to feel fond of Lucky. Don gets Audrey to persuade Alf to have a share in Lucky. Audrey fancies herself as an owner's wife. Alma sorts out her divorce, leaving Phyllis and Christine Carter on their own in the cafe. Alec is forced to wear a Hawaiian shirt as it's his only clean one. He contacts the Home Care agency for a housekeeper. When Percy complains about the food at the cafe, Alma throws him out and closes the cafe as she can't cope. Alec takes Mrs Hargreaves on as housekeeper. Audrey worries as she's got no clothes that match Lucky's colour. Bet finds Mrs Hargreaves ironing Alec's shirts with her iron. She accuses her of being Alec's bit of stuff and takes the iron off her. Bet tells her that Alec is a sex maniac. Ken worries as the Gazette starts a freesheet. Bet enjoys seeing Alec going under. Mrs Hargreaves leaves when Alec asks her to work behind the bar. He is forced to take Vera on for the night and accuses Bet of being a pub-wrecker.
