Luke and Tony continue to rub each other up the wrong way. Tom and Maria try to get on top of the Lad Rags orders. Tony calls round and tells them he's spoken to All American Booty and bought them some more time. Maria's grateful for Tony's help whilst Tom's annoyed. Liz is furious when she discovers Lloyd's going for a fortnight in Ibiza with the lads and never even bothered to mention it. An irate customer of Luke's complains to Tony about the standard of the knickers he's bought. Tony calms him down and belittles Luke in the process. Amber's thrilled when she gets an offer of a place at King's College, London. Ted spots Ken taking Eccles for a walk and asks him if he's told Martha yet that he's a married man. Ken admits he hasn't. Dev invites Audrey and Ted to the opening party at Tara's gallery. Lloyd promises Liz he'll make up for his thoughtlessness when he gets back from Ibiza. He and Liz make up. Joe asks Len to put him in touch with his mate who'll sort him out with a loan. Len agrees but warns Joe that he's not to be messed with. Luke announces to the factory girls and Tony that he's bought out Carla's 60% share of the business and is now their new boss. Tony's stunned.
