Emily is flattered when Percy flirts with her. Mavis bakes a cake with a mystery ingredient in it. Annie and Hilda also bake cakes. Fred is amazed to find Miss Weatherfield selling kisses at the Fayre. Marion tells Winifred Willis about the wedding and she takes the news well. Elsie guesses that Marion is pregnant. She tells her that she's very happy for her. Rita runs the bring and buy stall, Mavis the cake stall, Vera the bingo stall and Percy the jumble. Eddie decides he'd like Hilda to know about the baby from him rather than hear from anyone else. Hilda is thrilled when the deputy mayoress, Mrs Winters buys Hilda's cake. Gail is sad when she has to start packing the house up. Albert guesses that the mystery ingredient in Mavis' cake is sage. When she gives him the cake he refuses to take it as only a fool would eat a cake with sage in. Victor is horrified when his pottery ends up on the plate-smashing stall. Eddie tells Hilda that Marion is pregnant; she is disappointed in them but also pleased for them.
