Frank tries flogging Christmas stock onto unsuspecting residents. Arthur cannot decide what to get Pauline for Christmas. As Cindy returns to Albert Square, she is worried about being seen.

Cindy watches carefully through Ian's blinds at the Square.

Steve has decided to spend Christmas in the Square instead of in Norwich, irritating Hattie.

Cindy thinks she should go back to her house but Ian insists she stays, knowing she will prefer it with him than alone.

Nigel refuses to take anything from Frank, citing the sock incident as his reasoning.

Ricky wants to spend Christmas with Sam but still has not found them anywhere to live.

Kathy decides she cannot go to Tenerife with Tricky Dicky but changes her mind again after confronting Ian about Cindy.

Arthur has bought Pauline a provocative dress for Christmas. Michelle jokingly remarks it is normally what men get their "bits on the side" for Christmas.

Phil has an idea for Ricky and Sam to spend Christmas together - decorating flat 43A so that they can spend it there together whilst Frank and Pat are away.

Tricky Dicky tells Rachel that Kathy has asked her to look after the café whilst they go to Tenerife. She negotiates a deal with him for a permanent trader's pitch when they return.

Grant catches Sharon flirting with a customer and gets jealous. He wants to call a truce, but she refuses to.

Arthur goes back over to Mrs. Hewitt's and meets her friend, Joyce. Joyce tells Arthur that he has given Mrs. Hewitt a new lease of life.

Mark takes Ricky back to his flat and Ricky drowns his sorrows over the state of his living arrangements. He passes out drunk in the flat.

Hattie bursts into Ian's flat whilst he is having a meal with Cindy to tell him about a job needing doing early in the morning. Cindy hides and comes out again once she has gone.

Grant goes to fight the customer who flirted with Sharon but is stopped by Phil. Phil suggests he goes away for a bit to calm himself down.

Mrs Hewitt tells Arthur she knows they fancy each other and is getting tired of his excuses to see her. She tells him not to come over to her house again unless she means business - they either get it together or they are finished.
