Emma is furious with Kirk when she realises that he's borrowed one of the sheets off her washing line to cover the sofa in Les's back yard for him and Fiz to have sex on. Maxine finds out that Derek's girlfriend Donna Stout has left him. She is pleased as this means both Doreen and Derek will attend the christening and could possibly get back together. Dev is angry with Mike for not sacking Joe. He again threatens to go to the Police. Richard continues his campaign to convince Audrey she's going mad. He takes her keys and leaves them in the salon door. Steve is still worried that he'll be found out. Joe tries to placate him and pays him the £500 he promised. Karen demands the money off him. Two police officers turn up at the factory doing a routine inquiry. Mike manages to flannel them by suggesting that Naveen was trying to pull an insurance scam. Mike produces a fake docket proving the order isn't due to be delivered until Monday. Audrey is seriously worried that she's losing her marbles. Gail asks Richard if he's come up with a new idea to make money yet. He assures her that he has. Gail is unaware that Richard's plan involves Audrey's will. Mike points out to Joe that he's not out of the woods yet since the police inquiry was just routine; Dev could still go the Police and spill the beans.
