Wicksy helps Ian and Cindy move into 3A Albert Square. Nick sends a priest round to Dot's to explain that he really has been born again, and needs her help to face his past. Pete has been to see his bank manager about a loan to buy Pauline out of the fruit and veg stall, and offers her £3,500, which she and Arthur happily accept.

April gets Jackie, the chairman of the Turpin Road market association, to talk to Grant and Phil when they decide to start moving the stalls outside the Arches. Unbeknownst to April, Jackie knows Grant and Phil, and their deceased father, Eric Mitchell. Jackie enjoys catching up with Grant and Phil and then allows them to carry on moving stalls.
