Liz dresses up, telling Jim that she's got an interview at The Hour Glass but he doesn't believe her and thinks she's tarting herself up for a man. Don asks Vera to stop telling people about Ivy's ghost as Sarah Louise now thinks she can see her. Ken employs Kelly Thomson as a child minder. She is anxious to please and feels sorry for Ken with Denise having left. Denise returns, thinking Ken is at work. She ascertains that Fiona is happy running the Salon before calling at No.1 for some stuff. She is horrified to find Ken and Daniel there. She holds Daniel and breaks down, begging Ken to take him from her. Jim goes to The Hour Glass and finds they are not holding interviews. Denise throws her house keys at Ken and tells him that she won't be back. He's glad it's all over. Vera asks Sarah to tell her and no one else if she sees Ivy again. Tony keeps trying to talk to Fiona but she is always busy at the Salon. Audrey organises all her family into a group setting for a photographer to take an official photograph of them all. She is put out when Stephen makes Alf take the best place. Jim prepares to confront Liz before she tells him that the interviews were held in the Chequers Hotel on Bolton Road. Tony apologises to Fiona and they make up. Jim isn't sure if Liz is innocent or cleverer than he thinks. Audrey is annoyed when Alma breaks up the family gathering to take Stephen out for a meal. He is relieved and flirts with Alma, to her delight.
