She and Derek spend the morning making love and are an hour late for work. Alf decides that he will open the shop evenings and works out a rota. Audrey demands to be left out but Alf reminds her that he's the boss. Don is surprised when Ivy tells him she'll be working nights and that it was her idea. Deirdre meets Mike at The Ship, by the canal. She insists she wants a real job, not a handout. He's glad that she came to him after her ex-Council colleagues let her down.

He tells Steph that he knows he's not going to pass his re-sits. Derek confesses to Mavis that he slapped the cleaner Mrs Shaw's bottom at work.
