She is surprised when he tells her that they can afford a detached house over £100,000. Les realises he left his ticket at Emily's and is annoyed when he sees that she's thrown it away. Mike celebrates when he gets the contract from George Dixon but Angie feels it makes no difference; she is still leaving. He urges her not to throw everything away. She is pleased as he doesn't want to lose her. Nick and Leanne meet in secret. She tells him that she wants to go further with him. He is thrilled but nervous as he's a virgin.

Jon has a happy time with his wife and children. Sally is put out when she discovers Chris and Angie have gone flat-hunting together. Leanne takes Nick to bed but before they can get started Les disturbs them. He climbs into the attic and gets his ticket from No.3.
