Colin makes morning coffee for his overnight guest, Barry, who is nursing a hangover from the disco they met at the night before. Later, in the Square, Colin re-encounters Barry while cycling through the market. Barry winks at Colin causing him to fall off his bike and crash into Kathy's jumper stall. Lofty returns and meets with Michelle. Ali paints the top of the café frontage orange. Den and Angie arrive in Venice for their second honeymoon. Unbeknown to both of them (and by complete coincidence) Den's mistress Jan also arrives in Venice shortly afterwards to visit an Italian acquaintance, lawyer Dario Chimisso. Den and Jan eventually spot each other, though neither let on to their partners that they have done so.

Arthur retrieves the hidden jewellery from the robbery he staged while the news of his confession spreads across the Square. Michelle supports Arthur as he sits in sorrow.

Sharon finds out that Den is taking Angie to Venice and is sworn to secrecy. Angie finishes packing and delightfully looks forward to her and Den's second honeymoon together.

Michelle goes to the Vic to tell Den that Pauline will be late cleaning the pub, but she hears Den and Pat slagging her family off over the money Arthur stole.

Mehmet tries flirting with Carmel but has no success. Kelvin continues to take a fond interest in Carmel, which Tony seemingly disapproves of.

Dot and Tom gossip about Arthur stealing the money. Tom is furious and tells Dot he will be having harsh words with Arthur.

Pauline tells Michelle she needs to talk to Lofty and tells Arthur he needs to get out in the Square and apologise to the locals.

Whilst Angie and Den enjoy their first day in Venice, Jan coincidentally arrives at Venice to greet old lover Dario Chimisso. Dario and Jan spend time together and Jan tells Dario that Den is now out of her life forever. Angie and Den go on a gondola and Angie thrives off of every minute of attention she is getting from Den.

Simon struggles to run the bar on his own whilst Pat is putting her make-up on upstairs.

Arthur heads over to the Vic with Pauline and publicly acknowledges that what he has done was wrong before apologising to everyone.
