Martin takes Roy on to help out in the cafe. Stephen is embarrassed when Audrey insists on being present at his North West presentation. Alma helps him out by asking her to help her. Roy is interested to hear that Don has a ghost. He offers the benefit of his experience. Rita is outraged when Fiona asks her to help her financially in buying the Salon lease. She is annoyed that she can't give any encouragement without people asking her for money. Steve and Vicky do their best to show Stephen that they know the youth market he is after. Carrie tells Stephen that Steve only got his biggest order by asking Mike for help. She thinks they wouldn't be able to handle the contract. Fiona shows her brother Lee around the Salon and asks him to lend her the £4,500. He isn't impressed by the smallness of the operation. She makes him see that she's got regular clients who are also friends and that the business is consistent. He agrees to lend her the money for a year. Ken is pleased to hear from Fiona that Denise is moving out of the area. Stephen tells delighted Mike that the contract to manufacture Kbec sportswear in the North West is his.
