Alec has a widescreen television delivered. Roy takes up jogging as he wants to live as long as he can for Hayley's sake. Fred and Alec push their own policies through Audrey. She finds the speeches they write boring and decides to create her own policies. Liz is shocked when Jim asks her not to call on him so often; he needs to fend for himself and she shouldn't be held back from getting on with her life. She is upset when he tells her that she's stopping him from getting ahead with his own life. Audrey forces embarrassed Nick to hand out her leaflets at the college. Rita suffers pains in her head. Spider goes down a storm with the students as they identify with him and his policies. Standing for the Independent Business Alliance, Audrey proves a hit by appealing to the female students and telling the audience that she represents people who want a good time. She hits the wrong note though when she announces the return of the Miss Weatherfield Contest. Michael Wall suggests to Jim that he doesn't want Liz around as he no longer has any control over her. Rita struggles to keep on her feet in her flat.
