Cindy notices on a bank statement that Ian is overdrawn. Debbie turns up at the Vic to see Nigel again. He takes her back to the flat so they can talk in private.

D.C. Palmer tells Frank that one of the cars on his lot is stolen and must be retrieved - it is the one Ricky sold to Michelle.

Bianca refuses to give up on Tricky Dicky and tells him that he took her virginity, but he remains disinterested.

Michelle is furious to have her car taken off of her and demands either a new one or her money back from Frank, who turns to Kathy and tells her he wants to sell his share of the café to her for £9,000, and she considers it.

David returns from a few days in Birmingham and tells Pat he was at a car auction looking for a motor to bring back to the lot. She confronts him over his imprisonment.

Michelle turns to Nellie and Pauline for help over her lost car. Nellie takes charge of the situation and heads over to the Vic, where she demands the £100 deposit back from Frank or else she will expose him.

David admits to Pat he was taking out loans because his ex-wife kept wanting expensive new items and eventually lost track of his finances. He continues that a friend of his taught him how to fiddle the books, but he got caught out. Pat asks him if he is telling the truth, and he insists he is.

Kathy sticks up for Ian, so Pauline tells her that she lost her family status when she left Pete! Ian visits Pauline and tells her he is taking the stall back from Mark because he has earn a living for his family. She is understanding, but he does not tell her that he is intending to sell it on.
