Maud discovers that Mr Dillon is a friend of Fred's and realises she's been conned into selling to Fred at a low price. Ashley is furious when she explains it to him. Audrey enjoys being at the salon but doesn't like the way no one will trust her with their hair. Jon test-drives a £26,000 Saab, impressing the salesman, Mr Seymour, with his talk of being a pilot. Maxine feels out of her depth when Toyah refuses to pay for her haircut, saying it's a state. Audrey takes charge and threatens to hit her if Toyah doesn't pay up. Toyah throws the money at her and Maxine is forced to thank Audrey for her help. Maud accuses Fred of conning Maureen out of £15,000, backed up by Ashley who tells him to stick his inheritance, washing his hands of him. Jon tells Deirdre the Saab is his. She is amazed. Fred tells Ashley that he's not ashamed of cheating Maureen as she's made him a laughing stock. He feels the shop is his compensation. Ken spends the evening with Geraldine Milne and enjoys her company. They go to the opera and then have a meal together. Jon joins Deirdre at a Sunliners function but panics when they are photographed together by the local press. Gail gets annoyed when Nick stays out late with Leanne. She calls at the Battersbys' house but discovers he's not there. She's amazed that Janice doesn't seem bothered by the fact that they're out late. Leanne confides in Nick about Zoe selling her baby to the Malletts. Ken is flabbergasted when Geraldine gives him his fee to give to Alec.
