Leanne goes clubbing with Toyah and Sharon, putting Ashley out as he thought they were going together. Nita cooks Spider a Thai dish. They talk about their shared dream to travel. Alma is referred to a breast clinic. She is impatient for her results. Julia phones Mike and tells him that £10,000 will buy him the negatives of the pictures.
