Tony Cunliffe pesters Rita for a date. She doesn't want to get involved. Percy's niece, Elaine Prior, tells him that she's going to visit him. Rita asks questions about Bet and Tony. Alf and Betty tell her that most of its in Bet's mind. When Tony asks her out again she agrees. She's nervous as it's her first date since Len died. Hilda is upset that Trevor Ogden is too busy to visit Stan. Percy is delighted to have Elaine staying with him whilst she's on leave.
