Syd gets a surprise when he goes to investigate a noise downstairs. With nothing on and only a hairbrush to defend himself he is embarrassed to find himself face to face with Betty. Betty looks him up and down and remarks that he's not going to get very far with "a little thing like that". Betty is horrified by the state of her home and gets Syd to clean up. She then goes in search of gossip. She gets a warm welcome in the café but everyone remains tight-lipped. It's only when Chloe walks in and Chas has to be restrained that Betty gets an inkling about what's going on. After the run in with Chas, Chloe heads back to the office and pretends to be upset. Jimmy wants to go and sort Chas out but Carl gets him to leave it. Lisa takes Chas home and mentions that she saw Carl playing with the kids next door. Chas goes over to see Carl but as soon as she arrives Colleen appears and a slanging match breaks out between the two women. Carl tells Chas to go away because it's over. Later that evening, Chloe offers Carl a glass of wine. She is delighted when Carl admits he's relieved that it's over with Chas. Betty takes her search for gossip to The Woolpack. She gets nowhere until Louise puts her in the picture. Betty takes Edna aside to get the full story about her accident. Betty is reluctant to reveal where Seth is and tells people that he's stayed in Australia to top up his tan. She comes clean with Edna though and tells her that she came home after a row with Seth. She admits that she was feeling homesick while he loved it out there. Betty is amused to see Charity with Tom. Tom looks uncomfortable when Betty says hello to him. Robert jokes to Katie, as she dishes up Victoria’s tea, that she’ll make a lovely wife some day. Victoria replies that she's already Andy’s wife.

Andy is amused by Debbie's jealousy. Donna continues to help Marlon with the kids. The eldest boy, Luke jokes that they should call Donna Marlon's girlfriend.
