Martin secretly prepares for a family caravanning holiday. Nick isn't keen but agrees when Sarah wants him to go. Percy plans his route to London and Hyde Park to see the VE-Day concert. Don and Josie plan an intimate weekend as the Platts won't be around to make them feel uncomfortable. Andy moves in with Des as Samir and Deirdre move into No.11. Samir is angry when Deirdre turns to Ken for comfort when she's upset. Steve allows Vicky to take him over and they plan to buy a paper company, Dalmatian Consolidated Holdings, and enter into a partnership. Fiona is amazed to see their notepaper with Vicky and Steve down as company directors. She warns Steve that Vicky is after him and wonders where it will all end. Tracy shows her dislike of Samir and tells Ken that she wishes Deirdre had never married him. Gail refuses to be bullied into taking a holiday so angry Martin tells her they'll go without her. Samir tells Deirdre he wishes he'd never come; he's sick of moody Tracy and Deirdre's intimate relationship with Ken. Deirdre tells him that he's being selfish and slaps his face when he calls Tracy selfish for taking drugs. Nicky tries to win Gail round but she accuses him of only wanting them out of the house. She is horrified when he says that he was planning on going with them. He tells her there's no way he's going now and storms off to No.5. Josie is uncomfortable as he settles himself down. Gail agrees to go on the holiday and Don reluctantly agrees to take Nicky in. Deirdre and Samir make up, with her grateful for his sacrifice.
