Bianca arrives in Manchester full of fear and trepidation. She's wide eyed and nervous as she's shown round the campus. Her spirits rise when she sees the college has a crŔche. The interview goes well until the panel ask Bianca about her home life. Flustered, Bianca flees the interview in tears. Natalie is nervous as she prepares to visit her mum Andrea. Andrea smothers Natalie and flirts with Barry. Natalie struggles to hold her tongue. Things get worse with the arrival of her sister Susie. Sangria flows freely but Natalie begins to feel excluded. Terry and Irene's prize weekend starts disastrously. The promise of majestic luxury turns out to be a room above a pub. Terry and Irene bicker as they wander the countryside. They go their separate ways. Feeling pleased with himself, Terry has a little snooze. He wakes up in darkness. Unable to find his way back, he's forced to find shelter in a barn. Misreading the situation, Barry leaves Natalie alone to bond with Andrea. Recriminations fly. Barry plays peace-maker and invites Andrea to Walford for a weekend. Andrea continues to work on Barry. Natalie stares in horror as he reluctantly suggests she stay as long as she wants. Bianca returns to her hotel room miserable and alone. The door disturbs her.
