It is the day of the auction of Pizza Margherita and Ian is determined to buy the place. Phil gets frustrated by Grant's lack of work at the Arches. Sam wants Ricky to talk to Frank about them living at flat 23A.

Ian finds Hattie and asks her for a private word later on in the day. She agrees to the meeting but lies to Steve, not telling him what Ian wanted.

Pete returns to his flat. Arthur does not say goodbye to him.

Ian offers Hattie her job back but refuses to offer Steve his job back too. She considers his offer and he tells her that if she is interested to meet him at Lakeside Hotel at midday, where the auction is taking place.

Frank is panicked to learn the VAT man is visiting on Monday. He begs Pat to help him get the paperwork up together but she is reluctant to get involved.

Pauline does her best to get Arthur to read the HIV leaflets.

Brown, the man interested in Grant and Phil's flats, looks around. He intends to turn the flats back into a house and takes measurements of the place.

Pat has a change of heart and agrees to help Frank with the paperwork. He is grateful.

Hattie arrives at Lakeside Hotel and meets Ian. He is delighted.

Arthur has not read the HIV leaflets. Pauline is disappointed. Arthur heads to the Square and takes his anger out on the flowerbed.

Ian offers £69,000 for Pizza Margherita but is left disheartened when he is outbid and cannot afford the new price.

The winner of the auction is Brown, who bid over the phone.

When they return to the Square, Ian tells Hattie he wants an answer on whether she will take the job back or not by tomorrow.

Frank and Ricky intend to go fishing. Arthur, Pete and Phil all agree to tag along.
