Tricia loses patience with Bernice after weeks of servitude and locks her in the pub cellar. As the incident rumbles on Alan starts sacking his staff, including Bernice who insults Tricia. Betty then mocks Tricia, then saying she is not backwards at coming forwards, and she mocks him for sacking his staff, so Alan decides to sack her as well. Tempers flare when Ned warns Roy that marrying Kelly will be the biggest mistake of his life. Zoe and Stella demand Chris re-instate Frankie. Angie warns Eric that his bogus insurance claim may lead to a police investigation. And Stella puts the icing on the cake by demanding he repay the £500 he conned out of Tate Haulage. Graham is finding it increasingly difficult to come to terms with his guilt over Rachel's death. Alan reinstates Bernice and Betty at the pub. Then with the pub up in arms he makes a drastic announcement - which silences everyone. He says he is supposed to be taking it easy, so he plans to sell the pub. Tricia says if Bernice tries to get the pub, she will have a fight on her hands.
