Spider is miffed that Toyah is going to the stripper night. He feels they don't share the same values anymore. The Hortons invite Vera and Jack to look after Tommy in Blackpool for a week. Jack is amazed when Vera sets about inviting Tyrone, Maria and Norris, so she can close the Park Road B&B. Norris agrees to go as it means he won't have to cook for himself. Gail and Martin take time to discuss their problems and the future of their relationship. He doesn't want to be a weekend father so says he wants to stay with her but she demands that if he does so then he has to make a go of their marriage as she won't live a sham forever. Mark suggests to Linda that they tell Mike about the affair but she disagrees strongly. Mark gives her an ultimatum, she has to choose between him or Mike, or else he will go to Thailand with Craig Brennan.
