Times are tough for Mack and he feels he's carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. Having burnt his bridges and fallen out with close friends, work has dried up in the village and he is financially strapped. But that doesn’t stop Alan from trying to reclaim the unpaid debts from the reluctant builder, leaving Mack in a financial dilemma and nowhere to turn. With a contract for work on the village hall roof up for grabs, Mack is despondent as he is convinced his lack of friends in the village won’t do him any favours in winning the bid. Alone at Edna’s house, Mack stumbles across a short-term solution – unaware that he is about to bite the hand that feeds him. Elsewhere in the village, Bob has decided to try and bury the hatchet with Viv - deciding they need to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. He tentatively plucks up the courage to ask her out on a date and is relieved when she excitedly agrees. Jack is chuffed that he and Diane are finally an item, but he is keen to make sure the boys don’t feel put out. Andy is quick to try and take advantage of his father's new found romance, insisting Katie should be allowed to say in his room if Diane is allowed to stay in Jack's. But his efforts fall on deaf ears as Jack insists they will stick to the original rules - Katie will continue sharing with Victoria!
