The villagers gather at the King's show house opening and as Tom welcomes everyone, he takes the opportunity to announce that Matthew and Sadie have got engaged. A frustrated Jimmy is still determined to get what he wants from Sadie and he follows her upstairs and pushes her into the showroom bathroom. As Noreen is waiting for the toilet to become vacant she busies herself by opening the airing cupboard door. An interior light switches on and suddenly there is a massive blast which catapults Noreen over the banister and down the stairs. Sadie and Jimmy are interrupted in the bathroom by an explosion. David screams as he is set alight. Marlon and Donna are floored by the explosion and guests in the nearby beer tents are horrified as they watch debris fall from the house and run for cover. and Bob and Viv are stunned by what they are seeing. Back inside, Diane, Dawn and Danny try to escape, but the ceiling falls onto them, leaving Diane trapped. Up in the bathroom, Sadie violently yanks the door, but debris crashes down on her and Jimmy along with a water tank, drenching them both. Jimmy is frantic as the floor disappears from underneath him and he falls through, shortly followed by Sadie. There is a moment of silence as Dawn peers through the window before an explosion rips through the house. Guests stand and watch in horror as the house completely crumbles to the ground, with screams ringing out from inside. It's clear from the scale of the disaster that there will be fatalities.
