Glynis is still making a pest of herself, making frequent calls to Eric throughout the day. As she lures him away for a dangerous liaison, she makes her desires clear but Eric is insistent that the harassment has to stop. But Glynis will not be dissuaded as she relays her threats about revealing their affair. Mack and Syd have pulled another dirty trick on Marlon in an attempt to get payment for the work on Edith's house - the local Environmental Health Inspector has had a tip off and is paying The Woolpack kitchen a surprise visit. But burning bridges with the landlady of the pub leaves them high and dry as Diane bars them both. With no other local for miles the troublesome two are miffed. But their scare tactics don't stop there, as they have been caught red handed trying to break into Tricia and Marlon's cottage. Mack gives Angie a lame excuse for their actions, while Syd tries to flirt his way out of trouble. Eric walks into the factory to find everyone has downed tools to listen to Ledbetter on the radio. Gloria is gobsmacked as the opposition refers to Eric as a con man and a fraud. As Gloria calls an emergency meeting, Eric announces he is pulling out of the campaign. He is forced to tell Gloria about his recent affair with Glynis and understandably she hits him.
