Kevin plans to use his contacts to set up on his own. He remembers Vera having car trouble and repairs it for her. Audrey stands up to Ivy over her meddling. Ivy tells her she's doing her duty as Nicky's grandmother and Gail doesn't have a problem with it. Derek doesn't approve of Kevin servicing Vera's car in the Street, feeling it lowers the tone. Percy takes an interest in Jim's extension and offers to put the neighbours' fears to rest for him. Jim tells him it's none of his business. Jack asks him to show the plans to Vera to appease her. Jim refuses and leaves it to him to get round his wife. Steve hacks away at the backyard with a pick axe. Jim decides to panic the neighbours by digging the whole of the yard up. Audrey warns Gail that Ivy will drive Nicky away from her if she doesn't put a stop to it. Gail feels she'd be playing into Ivy's hands if she took Nicky out of St. Luke's. Nicky plays in the altar boys' team and scores two goals. Martin gives him tactical advice. Vera tackles Jim herself. Jim promises her that his extension will do for her house what her stone cladding has done for his. She is placated. The hammering from No.11 keeps Rosie awake. Liz pays the Websters a visit to warn Kevin that Derek is planning to get his street repairs stopped. Kevin is friendly to her but Sally complains that Jim's banging is making her life a misery.
