Furious with Shelley for standing up to her, Steph decides to make her former friend's life hell. Steph breaks some cups that Shelley has packed and then accuses Shelley of breaking them. Steph tells Shelley that she will dock her wages for the breakage. Steph then spots her grandmother's ring on Shelley's finger and accuses her of stealing it. She refuses to believe that Alan gave the ring to Shelley and tries to prise it off her. A furious Eric then has to come into the office and tear the two apart. Shelley tells Diane about hitting Steph and the incident with the ring. Diane tells her that she mustn’t cave in to Steph and breaks out the champagne to celebrate Shelley and Alan's good news. While the regulars celebrate with Shelley, Steph takes Viv aside and tells her that when she was young Shelley confided in her that she was saving herself for a ‘sugar daddy’. When Viv mentions how lucky Shelley is to have a man with Alan's money, Diane takes Steph aside and has words with her telling her to let her father live his own life. Having driven Jarvis to distraction Edna infuriates Len next, refusing to accept his or Emily’s help in the village shop. Knocking some tins to the ground because she finds it difficult to get around the shop, Edna angrily blames Viv for the situation and says she’ll take her custom elsewhere. Len buys the dog food she came in for and takes it round to Edna telling her that if she's stubborn enough to starve herself at least let her friends help feed Tootsie. Meanwhile, Jarvis suggests to Sam that he can help Edna buy building a ramp for her front door. The Woolpack barmaid ballot gets off to a dubious start with both landladies attempting to influence the outcome of the ballot by stuffing multiple ballot papers into the ballot box. They both assure their favourite barmaid that the matter is in hand.
