Bob and Terry are horrified as they misinterpret a welcoming kiss between Louise and Jonty when he arrives in the village. Jonty asks Louise to leave for Australia with him, but Jamie discovers them together and smacks Jonty in the face before storming off. Bob and Terry sit down with Jonty who shocks them by producing the volume of publicity that Louise's competition win generated. With the promise of more work heading her way, Louise decides to abandon Jamie and go to Australia. In a race against time, Bob and Terry track down Jamie as the villagers throw an impromptu going away party to stall Louise's exit. However, Terry's car breaks down on the way back to the village and they have to take Jamie's ice cream van. Back in the village, Jamie is a no show and Louise prepares for a glamorous departure atop a horse-drawn carriage. However, Jamie arrives at the last second and begs Louise to marry him. Louise dramatically accepts and the reunited pair leave for Australia together. Also, Donna confronts Ross  over what Shane knows and, furious by Shane's twisted games, she fears she could lose Marlon.

Wanting to do the right thing, Ross tells her he's applied for a transfer to London but as he gives Donna a kiss goodbye the passion takes over. Begging Ross not to leave, Donna screams as she realises Shane has caught them snogging. Donna realises she's kidding herself and agrees to the course in London to clear her head and spend time with Ross. Elsewhere, Donald ensures the King’s main investor pulls out, leaving the business in turmoil. As the Kings struggle, Anna is mortified to see the fruits of her labour. She's equally infuriated when Donald refuses to share information with her on exactly what he's done. Matthew and Carl fail to get their hands on Scarlett’s inheritance to help, to Jimmy’s fury.
