Den continues hounding Angie, but she evades him once more by saying she's going out. Den takes out his subsequent bad temper on Simon by sending him to search for an absent Lofty who has collapsed in his room from a severe asthma attack!. It's Kathy's first day on her new jumper stall. Angie meets Jan at an art gallery to discuss Den's moodiness and Jan tells her about the two week ultimatum she's given him. The Banned discuss what clothes to wear for the video they're making with Pete the next day, which quickly turns into a fist fight between Harry and Ian.

Lofty has an asthma attack whilst getting ready for work and cannot find his inhaler.

Den asks Simon where Lofty is and when Simon says he does not know Den sends him off to find him.

Dot admires Kathy's new knitwear stall on the market. Kathy thinks about the daughter she had when she was fourteen.

A hungover Angie has an early morning drink to help her cope with the day. She then phones Jan and asks to meet her, determined to know what is going on with Den.

Simon knocks for Lofty but has no answer.

Den visits Doctor Legg to try and get out of him the reason for Angie's specialist appointments. Doctor Legg tells Den that Angie is killing herself and needs help.

Simon continues to search for Lofty but has no success.

Dot visits Naima in the shop to buy Willy some dog food. Naima tells Dot she is interested in buying Ethel's flat as she assumes she will go into sheltered accommodation when she comes out of the hospice. Dot is unhappy to hear Naima is more interested in her best friend's flat than she is in her welfare and walks off.

Simon goes back to Lofty's flat and kicks the door in. He finds Lofty having an asthma attack and sees Doctor Legg for help. Lofty is then sent to hospital.

Dot goes to the Vic and sees Tom, who tells her he thinks Ethel will be better off in sheltered accommodation. Tom then tells Dot he will visit Ethel with her tomorrow and buy her food afterwards, but Dot reminds him she is a married woman.

Michelle wonders if Lofty's asthma attack was because of her. Doctor Legg reassures her it was not.

Angie lies to Kathy and tells her that she is visiting a specialist. Doctor Legg suggests to Kathy that she volunteers for the Samaritans. Angie meets with Jan at an art gallery and seeks reassurance from Jan that she is not pregnant. Jan reassures Angie she is not, and then tells her about the ultimatum she has given Den about their relationship.

Harry and Ian fight in the Vic over Sharon, but Sharon reminds Ian that she is using Harry to win the competition.
