Karen upsets a very important customer at Elevation and nearly loses her job. However she continues to show off and lies to Steve and her mates about how well she's doing. Richard receives a final reminder for the wedding invoice. He panics, secretly sells the car for £12,000 and pretends to Gail that it's been stolen. Tyrone fixes the indicator on Les's taxi for free after Steve gave him £20 to get the job done. Les gives Tyrone the radio as a thank-you. Peter offers Sally a part-time job in the bookies. Sally is delighted. Ashley admits to Maxine that it was he who defaced the "Balmoral" sign. Maxine thinks it's funny. They don't let on to Doreen who still thinks Vera is behind it. Kevin is cross with Tyrone when he finds out he's done some work for Les for free. Tyrone placates him by giving him the radio as an early birthday present. Richard feels that he's messed everything up - the conversion, the bail hostel and the car. He's very close to confessing everything to Gail but then changes his mind. Gail tells Richard how much she loves him and how he's made it feel like a proper family.
