Megan Morgan has designs on Alec and the Rovers. When she discovers that Bet has left the Rovers, Betty walks out. Bet stays the night at Rita's house. Alf tells Don that he wants out of the Lucky partnership. Bet gives £20 to Alf and tells him that she's moving into the shop flat, without giving him the chance to say no. Phyllis makes the most of her unemployment to follow Percy around. Jack decides to tell the brewery about the Gilroys' split, hoping that he'll be given the tenancy. Audrey is horrified to discover that Bet has moved into the shop flat. She fears Alf will get involved in the Gilroys' divorce case. Mavis puts Derek onto a job advertised in the paper.
