Elsie refuses to take the top back as Hilda has worn it, ironed it and scorched it. Sylvia Matthews also refuses to exchange Hilda's top. In revenge, Hilda tells her that she's employing someone who has been accused of shoplifting. Alf fears he's going to be made redundant. Terry worries that his sister Renee Bradshaw is coming to see him. Not knowing that Hilda meant Elsie, Sylvia asks Gail if she's ever been in trouble with the police. The Superbrain quiz semi-finals take place at the Rovers. Emily tells Elsie what Hilda told Sylvia. Bet loses the quiz to Herbert Siddall but goes out with the quiz master, Philip Lightfoot.
