Tyrone is upset when he sees Maria with Nick. Roy hears about the Sydney Sandwich and decides to try making them to sell in the cafe. Blanche at her most nosy quizzes Sophie and finds out that Kevin has moved back in - she proceeds to tell everyone. Geena is fed up with Shelley bossing her around so decides to work to rule. Kirk lets the cat out of the bag about the Sydney Sandwich and Les is a laughing stock. Kevin moves his stuff into No.13. He and Sally explain to the girls that he will be sleeping in the front room. One of the medal bearers at the games is taken ill and Norris steps into the breach. Norris frantically tries to get hold of Emily to make sure she's recording the medal ceremony. Sandy George, the Gazette editor, asks Ken if he would stand in for Doris Slack (aka Hermione Fairfax) and write Bodice Rippers for the paper. He refuses. Maria and Nick declare their love for each other. Les takes a bite from Roy's prototype Sydney Sandwich and is nearly sick when he finds out it contains wood grubs and larvae. The TV is on in the pub for the Commonwealth Games medal ceremony and Norris is on camera but nobody is watching while the video that Emily is recording the Games on runs out of tape mere seconds before he appears.
