Betty returns to the Rovers. Hilda blames her for depriving Sally of her job. Jenny tells Rita about Alan's redundancy, hoping she can cheer him up. Alan tells Rita he feared she would go off him if he was jobless. He tells her that he can't commit himself to a long-term relationship whilst he's out of work. Brian tells solicitor Geoffrey Stacey that he wants his marriage ended as soon as possible. Hilda tells Sally and Kevin that she has no objections to them lodging with her once they're married. They are pleased.
