Vera is astonished that Ivy wants to work in the rag trade again. Don doesn't approve of Ivy working at Ingram's because of Mike being there. Ivy doesn't consider Mike a factor. Deirdre is annoyed that Tracy has fed Ken a half-truth. Tracy thinks nobody cares about her. Flick isn't excited about her date with Mark as she thinks he's vain. Jack tries to get out of going on holiday with Vera. Ken goes to No.1 to have it out with Deirdre. She admits that she may be moving and that Dave has offered to let them live with him but says it has nothing to do with him. Ken tells her she'll be setting Tracy a bad example if she moves in with Dave. She throws his affair back in his face. Ken doesn't believe she's had an offer so she tells him it's from the brewery. Ivy goes for the job at Ingram's but needs a reference from Mike. Deirdre tells Dave that she can't accept his offer of accommodation - she's not ready for that sort of relationship. Mark collects Flick from the Rovers from their date. Mike refuses to give Ivy a reference because of the travel bags but Alma doesn't see what the big deal is. Curly and Kimberley plan a romantic evening but Vera plays gooseberry. Ken ventures into the Rovers. He tells Bet and Alec that he's now a supply teacher and tells them about the brewery buying No.1.
