Fred and Eve return from their honeymoon. Eve finds out from Geena that nobody has heard anything of Linda since the wedding and is very concerned. Charlie's mother, Pam Hargreaves, calls round to see her. She tells Charlie that she doesn't want her to have anything to do with Luke Ashton and that it would be best if she resigned. Charlie is very upset. Peter holds an opening ceremony for the Bookies. Shelley cuts the ribbon and she and Peter are an item again. Duggie wonders where Peter can have got the money from. Geena's mum Gill calls to see Dev. She makes some bigoted remarks and asks him to stay away from Geena. Later he pours his heart out to Vik.
