Don tries to convince Ivy that Mike was probably just giving Jackie a supportive hug. She's surprised by him defending Mike. Des has spent the night on the Websters' sofa to teach Steph a lesson. Mike worries about what Ivy will say to the workers. Curly tells Kimberley that he wants her body for Christmas; she has been saving herself for marriage. Des asks Rita to talk Jenny into quitting the promos, hoping that Steph will follow suit, but Rita refuses to intervene. She advises Des not to push Steph as she'll dig her heels in. Ivy assures Mike that she isn't a gossip and won't tell anyone. Don pays Marie's gas bill when the board try to cut her off. He lets out his anger in the Corner Shop when Jack asks him for a £10 loan to join a card game, ranting about how wasteful people are with money. Mike is embarrassed when Jackie mentions their affair in front of his secretary Amanda Worsley. Steph refuses to give up the job so Des packs and leaves for the night. Marie indicates to Don that she'll sleep with him if he wants. He is appalled and tells her she's worth more than that. Mike asks Jackie what she's playing at - she's realised that he was lying about his and Alma's relationship from the way he reacted to Ivy. She tells Mike that she's not going to share him with Alma and orders him to finish with her tonight. He's furious at being given an ultimatum.
