Alan asks him to get back in touch with him in a month or two. Rachel gossips to Annie and Joe about the goings on at the haulage company, suspecting Frank doesn't think Chris is doing his job properly.

Jack, Alan and Eric clear Chris out of nearly £200 in cash. Sarah gets a shock when she arrives home to find Annie looking after Robert and neither of them having any idea where Jack is. She explains about the call from Marian and their row adding that she doesn't trust Jack where Marian is concerned. She wonders whether Jack has gone to Italy without telling her.
