Jack tries to get Vera interested in the Knutsford job, telling her it'll be an adventure. Vera is dismissive, especially when Joss discovers there won't be room for him in the flat they'd get. Steph is relieved that Des doesn't know where to get hold of Clive Parnell, having only his phone number. Phil advises Andy to watch himself; he's upsetting some nasty people by selling the knock-off posters. Des pretends to be a client to arrange a meeting with Clive and get his revenge on him. Andy blames Tracy for Phil getting on his case. Alf makes sure that his potential voters are registered ahead of his campaigning. Raquel doesn't want to go to Angie's meal and only agrees when Curly tells her that Ben Williams will be there. Jack tells Vera that he only wants the interview for the expenses. He tells the mistress they'll be travelling from Southampton. Steph is glad that she and Des are getting on better but is puzzled when he disappears during dinner. Curly compliments Angie on her stew, not realising he's eating goulash. Angie tackles Raquel about modelling her designs at the student collections. Jack gets Vera on board by pointing out that middle-class people like them fiddle their expenses all the time. Steph looks for Des at the Rovers and hears from Jack that he's gone to The Gallery, a poncy bar, to sort out her admirer. She is furious and goes to stop him. Ben tells Curly that he doesn't mind him living with Angie now that he's met him. Raquel tries on one of Angie's outfits. Des meets Clive and goes for him but Clive floors Des with his unarmed combat. Steph arrives and separates them, rows with Clive and tells Des it's him that she loves.
