Gloria takes a B&B booking from a Mr Carnegie. She explains to Eva that he must be the competition judge. Stella remains none the wiser. Ken tries to convince Deirdre that he and Wendy are history and nothing more but Deirdre's adamant that he must resign from his job. Sally softens towards Michelle and invites her for dinner so that she can and Ryan can patch things up. Michelle's grateful. Kylie's fed-up with her lowly job at the salon and wishes that David had more ambition. Gail points out that Nick's the ambitious one in their family. Ken hands in his resignation. Brian and Wendy do their best to talk him out of it but Ken explains how Deirdre has left him no choice. Nick calls at the café hoping to call a truce, but when he makes patronising comments and likens Roy's Rolls to a greasy spoon, Anna and Mary are affronted and tell him where he can shove his olive branch. Over dinner at Sally's house and with the aid of a "talking stick", Michelle and Ryan finally iron out their differences and he agrees to move back home. Michelle's relieved. Brian has a go at Deirdre for taking away their most valued governor, Ken. Gloria encourages Stella to have the weekend away, knowing that she can rent out Stella's room to Mr Carnegie. Stella's oblivious to her mother's plotting. Deirdre finally relents and tells Ken that he can remain in his job but she'll be watching his every move. Ken promises that she won't regret her decision. As Ryan moves his stuff back home, Tracy calls round and announces that she's pregnant. Michelle's horrified, whilst Ryan is stunned.
