The Duckworths are annoyed to receive the Malletts' rewiring bill. They refuse to pay it. Brian calls on Denise demanding to know why she's ended their affair. She explains that she is disgusted with herself. He tells her that she's disturbed and she'll never remain faithful to Ken. He is stunned when she tells him that she's marrying Ken. Vicky withdraws £3,000 for Steve to give to Malcolm Fox. She is horrified when Steve tells her that she must be the one to talk to Fox and ask him to change his statement. Nick signs over No.5 to Don and is given £12,000, to be put in trust until he is eighteen. Nick thanks Don and Don wishes him well with the money. Josie is relieved when Don feels that Ivy is now dead. Vicky goes to see Fox, unable to believe Steve is putting her through it all. She asks Fox to perjure himself in order to keep Steve out of prison. Fox takes the £3,000 and tells her that he'll want another £3,000 after the trial.
