Nicola prepares to go to Scarborough to bag her man, but is put out when she discovers Jack, Val and Victoria are catching a lift with her and Marlon. The journey to Scarborough is not without its hitches as Nicola slams the car boot down on Marlon's hand and he has to be taken to casualty en route. Meanwhile, Simon is working with his sister Bonnie and mum Lesley in the fish quay and is not impressed to see his surprise visitor. Sick and tired of Nicola's questioning Simon shouts that he and Tash are not together and storms off. Tear stained and humble, Nicola begs Lesley and Bonnie to tell her where Simon is and later shocks him when she turns up where his boat is moored and sits down, refusing to leave. Will Simon back down? Meanwhile, Diane hides from Rodney who finds her and tells her it is typical of her to drop a bombshell and then run away from him. Diane feels uncomfortable but Rodney is still unsure how to respond as he holds her close. Later that day, Val and Jack turn up at the funeral and are told that Rodney and Diane seemed eager to leave together. Jack is furious and when he finally catches up with them on the promenade he punches Rodney in the face. Rodney realises that Jack doesn’t know that Diane has cancer and pleads with Diane to tell Jack the truth. Diane runs off and Rodney is left to explain to Jack that his fiancé has cancer.
