Frank is determined to track down the man who made the nude statue of Diane, so attends the talk he's giving at Walford College and gives him a piece of his mind, much to the embarrassment of Diane who runs from the talk and locks Frank out of the house. Sharon goes to see a funeral director with Wicksy and buys a coffin for Den's burial.

The body is confirmed to be Den's.

Shireen must decide if she wants to meet Jabbar again.

Diane lies to Frank and tells him she is going swimming with Shireen in the afternoon, when she actually intends to go to another one of Matthew Taylor's art classes.

Dot fails to feel the health benefits of Nick's healthy eating plan for her. Doctor Legg checks Dot over but thinks her body has just disagreed with what she has eaten. Nick tells Dot she needs more zinc in her diet as she is oversensitive.

Sharon visits the funeral director with Simon and agrees to spend over £1400 on his funeral. Simon and Michelle wonder where she will get the money from.

Shireen agrees to see Jabbar again.

Frank attends Matthew's art class, unaware that Diane is sat at the back of the room. Following the class, Frank tries outing Matthew as a pervert, but is unsuccessful. Diane flees the classroom, unseen by her father and embarrassed over his actions. When Frank returns home, he cannot get in. He bangs on the door and asks Diane to let him in, but she is hesitant to do so.

Sharon struggles to decide on who to invite to the funeral. After it gets too much for her, she packs her bags, leaves a note for Simon, gets in a taxi and heads off elsewhere.
