Brenda is excited when Pollard tells her they are going on holiday to Cornwall today. However, Val is seething as she is being left to run things on her own. Amy helps out by offering to miss out on the holiday and keep an eye on things at the B&B. Val is close to tears as she tells Amy that she messed up and she loves Pollard. When Amy shows no sympathy for her, Val heads into the back of The Woolpack with a bottle of wine. At the same time, Alicia is working her way up to telling David that she has feelings for him, but Val gets nasty by describing David as "brainless, spineless and totally pathetic". Alicia snaps by hitting Val in the face, causing a nose bleed. Val doesn't take this lightly and immediately phones the police. As the officers take a devastated Alicia away, she shouts to David not to tell Jacob what has happened. Meanwhile, in the café, Ashley is dressed in a suit ready for his first day at work at the burger bar, having lied to everyone that he has a 'managerial role in catering'. Soon afterwards, Laurel arrives and explains her concerns to Ashley that the rent urgently needs paying. At work later, Ashley is shown the ropes by Gareth but barely holds it together when his request for an advance on his wages is laughed off. At the end of the day, Ashley heads to Mulberry Cottage and hands Laurel money for the rent, lying that he got a sub on his wages. Elsewhere, Cameron feels guilty when Debbie thanks him for taking up extra shifts in the pub to buy Sarah a birthday present.
