Just as Vincent is about to flee, the estate agent informs him of a buyer who can pay by tomorrow. Can he save his livelihood after all? Shirley and Tina argue over the best way of dealing with Zsa Zsa's pregnant friend Georgi, and as Martin works the market, he catches the eye of a woman he has never seen before. The missing chess set angers Ted and staggers Karen, who cannot believe her daughter would be interested in a game like that.

Shirley and Tina receive a shock, while Mick returns from Manchester and immediately cottons on to the suspicious activity in the Vic. But putting a stop to it will be easier said than done. Martin bumps into his new lady friend Hayley again - and when Stacey sees them together, she is irritated to see him moving on so quickly. Karen worries that Bernadette's chess playing is making her old before her time.
