Leanne borrows money on the strength of her divorce settlement cheque. Vera tries to talk Jack into having a private operation for £12,000 but he refuses to consider it. Alison is furious when Kevin buys trainers for the girls when they're supposed to be saving money. Natalie decides to organise a trip to the races. Martin sees Leanne in a new dress and realises she'll blow all of Gail's money. Sharon takes Danny bowling. Hayley offers to make Maxine's wedding dress but Maxine refuses to let her, wanting a professional job. Maxine realises that she's offended Hayley so she agrees to her making the bridesmaid's dress. Ravi is insulted when Mike tells him that he's a randy old goat and Alma's just after a meal ticket. Nita urges Ravi to tread carefully with Mike and tells him that he's got a young girlfriend.
