Alma organises Audrey's secret birthday party. Paula travels from Blackpool to apologise to Gary, saying that she's no longer seeing Lewis Martin. She is disappointed when he is short with her. Dennis reports his van stolen to the police and is grateful when Les agrees to him staying whilst Janice is away. Vera urges Gary not to shut Paula out, telling him he'll regret it if he does. Audrey is thrilled by her surprise birthday party. She is amazed to see schoolfriend Gladys Braithwaite again and is forced to thank Ken for finding her. Audrey patronises Gladys when she finds out how lowly she is. Emily is frustrated when Les throws a noisy barbecue when she's trying to work. He refuses to turn his music down for her.
