Bill is nervous about meeting Sally and in an attempt to make a good impression, decides to cook dinner for her. Just as she's going to a meeting with Jeff Bryant, Alma is told by Audrey that there's talk about Deirdre and Mike having an affair. Alec thinks he's finally won Steve over but Steve tells him that he loves Vicky and he can stick his money. Vicky tells him that he's a nasty old man and she never wants to see him again. Alma can't concentrate on her meeting and is upset when Jeff suggests they postpone until her mind is on the job. Bet tells Alec that he should have known bribing Steve would never work. Alma goes for Mike, accusing him of being unfaithful. He drags her to see Deirdre but Alma backs down from a confrontation, believing all he is trying to do is help her. Bill sets fire to the kitchen at No.13 whilst cooking and the fire brigade are called out. Kevin is horrified. Alec apologises to Vicky and begs her not to cut him off. She stuns him and Bet by saying that she and Steve are flying out to marry in St Lucia.
