Gail can't believe that Audrey is looking for another man. Audrey tells her she has to rebuild her life and it's obvious that Alf doesn't want her. Phyllis suggests to Percy that Emily is going to Rhos-on-Sea with a man. Alma gets a thrill out of the fact that Jackie doesn't know about the cafe and decides to keep Mike's dirty secret. Mike worries when he can't get hold of a customer who owes Ingram's £50,000. Alf gives Ivy a rise in gratitude for all her support. Martin answers the phone to Stephen Reid and tells Gail that Audrey has been calling a bloke in Canada. Gail remembers Malcolm Reid and realises that Audrey is making plans to run off to Canada. Vera tells Reg about Ivy's situation. He introduces himself to Ivy in the Rovers and tells her that she must be mad working for Alf. Percy tells Emily that he'll go with her to Rhos-on-Sea but she tells him that she's going alone. Gail tries to get through to Audrey, warning her about making a fool of herself. Audrey is sure that Malcolm will still be waiting for her. Alf hears Betty talking to Ivy about Reg and makes Ivy admit that Reg offered her a job. Mellors goes bust without paying Ingram's. Mike tells Jackie they're finished if anyone else does the same. Alf accuses Reg of trying to poach his staff and threatens to throttle him. Malcolm rings Audrey and tells her he's getting married next month to someone called Ruth. She breaks down in private.
