Debs confides to Natalie that Duggie was impotent. Vik gives Eileen Grimshaw a ride in his cab and, impressed by her local knowledge, ends up employing her to operate the radio at Street Cars. She demands £5.50 an hour. Sarah has her first antenatal class. Debs assures Duggie she can be patient and sex isn't everything. Martin and Rebecca get their mobiles mixed up. Jim returns from Ireland to find Gwen has replaced all his furniture with new. He is horrified she's bought it all on their store card. Linda is annoyed when Mike cuts the girls timings down so Janice and Gwen won't meet their normal wages. She stays at work late, sewing more knickers to add to their piles. Maxine worries that she's bullied Ashley into vegetarianism. Gail phones Martin's mobile and is puzzled when a woman answers. Later Martin tells her she must have misdialled. Jim insists the furniture is sent back until Gwen confesses all his old stuff was taken to the tip.
