Kelly has her first day minding Daniel. Mike is keen to build on Alma's relationship with Stephen as he wants to do business with him. Maxine goes out of her way to be efficient at the Salon. Emily doesn't think that Kelly's old enough to be looking after Daniel. She is left feeling foolish when Kelly asks her how many children she has actually had. Steve feels they should go after a contract with Stephen's firm Kbec. He makes Vicky see that they have to take big chances if they're ever to grow as a company. Vera summons Ida Clough and tells her about Ivy's ghost. She advises Vera to stop worrying about Ivy's soul as she'll wear herself out. Steve chats up Carrie about producing sportswear for Kbec. She is impressed by his performance but thinks he's too small. Gail asks Vera to stop putting ideas into Sarah Louise's head about ghosts. Mike finds himself out of his depth talking business with Stephen. He invites Mike to put a projected plan down on paper. Mike is annoyed to hear that Steve is also after the contract. Fiona is horrified when Jon Welch turns up to tell her that he's back with his wife and has agreed to buy the Salon lease from Denise and he won't need her services anymore.
