Nicola is furious to find out that Rodney has agreed to write Maggie's reference as well. To add to her disgust, Rodney and Maggie are openly flirtatious in front of her. Recognising the glint in Rodney's eye, Nicola fears that he may favour her rival in the race for the Dale Park Manager's job. She takes it upon her self to find the references to see what she's up against. While Nicola is busy snooping through Rodney's paper work, she is alarmed to hear familiar voices entering the B&B. As Rodney and Maggie pour themselves generous drinks, Nicola is trapped and forced to hide under the bed. As the drinks continue to flow, Rodney steps up his flirtatious behaviour, insisting he would like to be more than just friends. With her career in mind Maggie obliges as Rodney invites her to the bedroom. Nicola is horrified as they enter and strip off with her still under the bed. Having decided they are both unhappy with their current living situation, Peg and Zak join forces as they come up with a seemingly foolproof plan to scam their relatives. Having proved her wonderful acting skills, they agree to pretend Peg has won a huge sum on a prize draw, in the hope that Marilyn and Elvis will take her back. But they will need proof of the winning to convince their wily relatives. Zak recruits Rodney to act as the prize giver as he takes a photo of the presentation of the fake cheque.
