Darren is already taking advantage of Carmel and has left her with the children for the day. Her mother can't help out and she has to take time off work.

At the five-a-side football match between The Dagmar and the hastily recruited Queen Vic team, Den encourages his squad to play as dirty as they can in order to win. After the match Den tells Pete that Wicksy can have his job back at The Vic, with a pay rise.

Mags tells Wicksy she's decided to rent Kelvin's flat, and asks Wicksy to move in with her.
