The Malletts look forward to their new life in Newcastle. Chris tells Sally that he'd like to move in with her. She doesn't like the way he's trying to become part of her family. Vera tells Jack and Alec that she's leaving the kitchen to Betty from now on so that she can keep an eye on them. Audrey enjoys working at the Salon and plans to ask Fiona to sell the business to her. Samantha tells Des that she loves him, using the expression for the first time ever. Audrey is furious when Alf refuses to let her buy the Salon, saying she has no business sense. Liz flirts with a couple of young businessmen, Matt Graham and Simon Hanson, at the Warwick Hotel. She is humiliated when she overhears Fred shouting at them for calling her a slapper behind her back. Vera flicks through Alec's agency book and is interested in one of his escorts, Marco. She puts on a posh voice, calls herself Roxy Lamour, and phones Alec asking for a date with Marco. Alec realises straight away that Vera is the caller. Gary feels awful having to tell Jim that he won't be able to go into business with him. Des forces himself to thank Les for coming to his rescue. Natalie is pleased to see Chris pulling Sally's bedroom curtains at night.
