Kathy tells Simon that she is getting a new car, while Pete tells Den about Simon's debts. Den agrees to loaning the money.

A horrified Ali takes Ian, Kelvin and Sharon back to the café following their Hellogram service for Mehmet. He tells them how angry he is that Sharon ruined the evening with her out-of-tune singing, but agrees to not tell Den if Sharon gives up the Hellogram service immediately.

John sees Angie, who has been heavily drinking, crying in the upstairs flat living room. Before he leaves, he tells Angie not to take anymore sleeping pills.
