As Mike still isn't home, Linda decides to close the factory for a couple of days and gives all the staff two days' paid leave to get back at him. Alma and Mike have a really nice time together. Alma makes Mike promise that he won't end his marriage with Linda; he agrees. Mike phones Audrey and tells her that he will look after Alma. Audrey decides that she will go to London with Gail, Sarah and Bethany as she needs a break. Two social workers, Gillian Davies and Graham Larkin, pay Roy and Hayley a visit. They have interviewed Alex Swinton, Sheila Hayes and Wayne and all three are denying that there has been any physical abuse. The social workers infer that Roy and Hayley have made it all up just to try and get Wayne for themselves. Roy and Hayley are cross and upset. Mike phones Linda and tells her that he will be coming home tomorrow. Linda has Harvey Reuben round for the night again. Linda tells Harvey that both she and the factory will soon be on the market.
