Gail returns from holidaying in Milan. Sarah worries that Gary is hiding something from her. Gemma goes overboard with the packing and is told by Chesney to leave some things behind. They're decidedly unimpressed with Paul's mate's run-down caravan, which smells weird inside. Gary advises Alex to pay Rick back in full right away rather than in instalments. Michelle picks up the slack when Robert is late into work. Nick hears Toyah and Imran whispering about him and asks Leanne to find out what they were saying. Chesney's car won't start. Rick gives Gary his first debt collection job working under his right-hand-man, Sharon. Kevin tells Chesney he needs a new starter but Abi takes a closer look and finds a loose lead on the battery, saving the day. Sarah follows Gary and sees he and Sharon setting off in a van. Abi is disappointed when her motor skills fail to prompt Kevin to re-employ her. Sarah loses Gary at the roadworks so goes home and confides in Gail what she saw. Gail thinks he's playing away but Sarah isn't sure as the woman Gary was with isn't his type. Across town, Sharon forces her way into Vicky Jefferies's house and orders Gary to go through her things to find anything of value. Gary reluctantly follows her orders. Chesney, Gemma and Joseph arrive at the deserted campsite in the pouring rain. Turning on the electricity, Chesney floods the caravan in purple light and realises it was formerly used as a cannabis farm. The situation goes from bad to worse when Gemma reveals she left their waterproofs behind. Michelle tells Robert the latest about Carla. His reminder of what Carla did to him infuriates Michelle and she blames him for naming and shaming her at the memorial. Toyah shares Imran's theory about the factory insurance scam with Leanne and Nick. The campers spend the day playing games in the caravan. After confiscating Tyler's laptop, Sharon becomes violent towards Vicky. Gary can't take any more and forces Sharon into a cupboard allowing Vicky to make a run for it.
