Steve enjoys being a DJ on 'Just Can't Wait' Radio. Ken returns a day early and hears 'The Adventures of Capt Kenny Baaa-low' on the taxi radio. He is amused. Steph refuses to help with the boat. Ken interrupts the broadcast and throws the twins out of his flat. Vicky's uncle Nick tells the Gilroys that Vicky has been well provided for in the wills. The money is to be kept in trust until she is eighteen so she can stay on at boarding school. Alec decides to apply to be Vicky's legal guardian but Vicky isn't sure if that's what she wants.
