Hattie goes to Southampton in search of Steve before he leaves. Meanwhile, Phil meets a Romanian woman named Nadia who worries about being deported.

Hattie wakes to the note from Steve - he has gone to Southampton to work as a chef on a cruise ship, so she hurries into the Square and interrogates Mark and asks him if he had any idea about his plans. Phil calms her down and takes her to the Vic, before agreeing to take her to Southampton to find him.

Steve has spent the night in a B&B and prepares to leave.

Sharon informs Clyde of Hattie's adventure with Phil.
