Martin and Rebecca make plans to spend Friday night together. Roy is impressed with Vera's friendly approach with the customers. Audrey feels that Sarah's pregnancy is somehow her fault for setting a bad example. Martin asks Danny to lie for him about Friday night and say they were together at a stag-do if asked. Danny agrees but isn't at all happy about it. Audrey tells Gail who her father is (for the first time). He's called Ted Page, she didn't love him but knew he loved her. She thought if she got pregnant Ted would marry her and then she would be able to get Stephen Reid, her son, back. However she didn't marry him as she realised she didn't love him. She shows Gail a photo of him. Natalie arranges to meet Vinny - he agrees. They meet and she asks him if they could try again but he doesn't think it would work. Tyrone finds out that Maria doesn't have a boyfriend, she was with her brother the other day. They arrange to meet.
