An impressed Duggie buys the builders drinks all day. Deirdre sorts out paperwork at the shop for Dev. Fred worries when he hears that a supermarket is to open near his butcher's shop. Duggie suggests he relocates to Victoria Street. The Platts are relieved when David agrees to take on a dog from a rescue centre. Vinny gets tired of Duggie bragging and throwing his weight around. They arm-wrestle, but the match turns into a fight when Duggie suggests swapping girlfriends as Natalie needs a real man. Rita feels uncomfortable when she sees Anthony with his wife and sees how tender he is with her. Whilst drunk, Duggie offers Vinny a job. Tyrone minds Tommy at the garage, but Doreen Horton snatches Tommy while his back is turned. Vera is horrified to see them driving away together.
