Sally Waterman is embarrassed spending the night at the Rovers with Ken living next door. Deirdre talks Ken into going to Corfu, although he doesn't want to go. The Duckworths go to court where Jack is fined £200 and banned from driving for a year. He has parked in a restricted area and gets a ticket. Sally realises Ken finds her attractive and encourages him to talk about his feelings. He tells her that he doesn't want to go on holiday and be without her. She offers him a platonic relationship. Ken stands Deirdre up for lunch to take Sally out. An old police friend, Sgt. Graham Ibbotson, tells Betty that a police sergeant called Tony Cunliffe is being transferred to the area and needs somewhere to lodge. He asks Betty if she'll take him in, she agrees to see him. Jack contemplates living off the state.
