Ashley feels his whole life is a lie and can't cope with the revelation. Fred tells him that he's always been proud of him and has longed to tell him the truth. He explains how his mother Kathleen ran off after his birth and Beryl and Sam Peacock took him in as they couldn't have children. Mike hires a private detective, Harry Pringle, to find Julia Stone. The Battersbys are forced to hire a caravan in the Happy Days Holiday Park. Martin and Les are disgusted with the idea of holidaying together. Toyah is pleased as she fancies Owen Williams, the owner's son. Nita points out to Ravi that she needs independence as Vik will inherit the shops, not her. He is frustrated. Audrey is stunned when Fred tells her that Ashley is his son. Ashley tells Maud about Fred being his real father. She advises him not to be too hard on him. He wants to question Beryl but Fred begs him not to and insists nothing has changed - she's still his mother.
