Samantha and Des spend the night together. Alan tells Fiona he's amazed that she's pregnant as she's on the pill and assumes the baby must have conceived the night they got back together. Samantha tells Ritchie there's nothing between them and she doesn't want him back. He is bitter that she's slept with Des and still says he loves her. He accuses Des of destroying his marriage and tries to hit him. Samantha wants a divorce but Ritchie refuses to give her one. Fiona isn't happy to discover everyone knows she's pregnant. Alan is annoyed to hear Rachel telling Steve that she's sick of him always thinking about Fiona. Steve isn't bothered when she tells him they're finished. Fred views No.4 and offers Mavis the asking price of £47,000. Fiona is upset when Alan asks her if she slept with Steve during their split. She tells him that Steve hasn't been anywhere near her. Samantha and Des plan a holiday on his boat. Fiona tells Jim she doesn't think Alan is the father of her baby and asks if his vasectomy could have failed. Alan asks his best friend DS O'Grady to bring Steve in again.
