Rita tells him that he's too old and would need to invest in a wig to get a job. Gail is incredulous when Les offers her £10 for any of her old engagement rings, as she's obviously got loads going spare. Adam's car breaks down (he's put petrol into the diesel engine) and he's caught by the police for having no tax, mot or insurance. Candice dumps him and stalks off. Violet and Betty have reservations about Shelley's impending wedding. Charlie takes great delight in telling Bev the happy news. Les goes to the police station to try to claim an engagement ring in lost property as his own. Instead, he's questioned for stealing the ring, until Cilla backs up his alibi that he was in Spain at the time of the robbery. Kelly confides in Lloyd that when she was a kid she was sent away for shoplifting. The beggar girl, from the night before, had been inside with her. Cilla bans Les from the pub, ordering him to start saving for a ring instead. It's Les's fiftieth birthday. Cilla won't give him a card or present because he hasn't got her an engagement ring. Zack has suggested that Shelley makes things up with Bev. Charlie rejects the idea. Ken is appalled that Mike is going to buy Adam a company car.

Phil accepts Gail's apology and agrees to go out with her for a meal. Yana, Cilla and Les arrive in the Rovers.
