Alma stays with Audrey and struggles to cope with Mike betraying her. Eunice hears from her sister Dolly in Spain who tells her that her husband Bernard has died. She tells the Duckworths she'll be staying with her for a while and will have to close the Park Road B&B. Maxine feels sorry for Ashley not knowing Fred has a son. Tom tells her that she must tell Ashley as he has a right to know. Eunice suggests to the Duckworths that they buy the B&B from her. Alma is stunned when, rather than apologising to her, Mike brings up her infatuation with Stephen Reid, saying that he knows she would have gone to bed with him if he hadn't turned her down. She tells him that she can't forgive him as he obviously planned his night with Julia as it was when he'd told her that he was going to be working in London. She tells him that he disgusts her. Ravi feels Nita isn't running the Corner Shop well enough and feels he's losing out to Freshco's. Alison tries to interest Kevin in a holiday. She gets frustrated as he spends so much time with Sally and the girls. The Duckworths tell Eunice that they can't afford to buy the B&B and know Jack's heart condition would stop them getting a bank loan. Eunice is disappointed. Kevin is uncomfortable when Sally introduces him to Danny. Ashley is stunned when Maxine tells him that Fred has got a son.
