Liz has spent the night at a B&B. Deirdre offers her a hot shower and breakfast. Fred challenges Mike about accepting Penny's help, but not his. Mike assures him that the arrangement with the factory girls is purely business. Charlie and Jason install a radiator for Mrs Fanshaw, who takes a shine to Jason. Charlie leaves Jason to finish the job on his own, and Mrs Fanshaw takes Jason to bed. Liz leaves for Brighton. She makes it clear to Karen that she'll be back to see Steve and her granddaughter and has no intention of losing touch with either of them. Tracy asks Roy and Hayley to babysit Amy. It goes very well, and they arrange to do it again next week. Charlie flirts outrageously with Shelley, watched jealously by Bev. Fred again gives Shelley a talking-to about neglecting other customers. Doreen Heavey looks after Joshua so that Ashley and Claire can spend some time on their own. They nervously book into a posh hotel in Chester. Les calls in on Janice and offers to take her for a pint, although just as mates. Mike questions Penny about her intentions towards Fred, claiming that he's interested only in his position as Fred's friend. Shelley goes to the back room to get a cigar for Mike. Charlie follows her there and claims a kiss. She's tentative at first, but soon passionately responds.
