Steph feels tired of Des's boyishness and is attracted to Simon Beatty. Sandra Arden asks Alec to meet Victoria from the station and put her up whilst she and Tim attend the funeral in Whitby. Mike tells Deirdre that Phil turned Jackie against him, and told her about their affair. Mike tells her that Phil is financially in ruin. Deirdre reminds him that he did trick Jackie; Phil only told her the truth. Angie tells Reg that Rita is angry that he might buy No.3. Liz tells Deirdre that Phil lost her £200 at cards. Steph phones Simon behind Des's back. The thought of Rita's wrath puts Reg off No.3. Don searches for Phil in vain.
