Roy realises that he's ruined everything for Hayley but she refuses to hide away and faces the music at work. She tells Mike that she'll pay for his suit to be cleaned and begs him not to tell anyone about her; for Roy's sake. Toyah returns from holiday with a boyfriend: Philip Dobson, alias Dobber, in tow. Natalie and Des enjoy Colin Barnes' wedding, although she's still uncertain about living with him. Alma goes through the personnel files to find Sheila Dixon's address. Anne gets her to handle some blank sheets of paper. Gary has an audition for a band but is completely out of his depth and ends up selling them his drum kit and giving up all ambitions of fame. Alma gives Sheila's address to Spider. Dobber puts pressure on Toyah to have sex with him. Natalie agrees to move in with Des but worries that it means more to her than him. She tells him that she needs some commitment from him. Spider fails to find Sheila but is pleased when Anne calls asking to see him. Dobber takes Toyah out in his brother's car and pushes her onto the back seat. She is nervous but goes along with it.
