Kat is plagued with guilt after cheating on Alfie the night before. Alfie misinterprets her subdued mood, thinking that she is annoyed with him for being so drunk yesterday, so he buys her a bouquet of flowers to make up for it. Kat insists that she isn't angry with Alfie, but is merely having second thoughts about joining the pub league. Alfie decides that his undeserved place on the team is the source of the problem and immediately quits - telling Kat that they can be joint managers instead.
Kat spends most of the day ignoring constant phone calls from her mystery lover. When she finally answers, she tells the man to leave her alone. Soon afterwards, though, the individual in question calls up on the pub's phone. Alfie is the one who answers and he clearly recognises the voice of the man on the other end, telling Kat that her 'favourite fella' is on the line. Kat is enraged by the behaviour of her lover and refuses to speak to him. But will she give in as he continues to beg her for a meeting?
Meanwhile, Joey steps in to help Lucy when she gets some unwanted male attention while out and about. Jumping to her defence, he punches the guy in question. Later, Lucy invites Joey round to see her, rewarding him with a gentle kiss. Things heat up between the pair, but Joey warns her that he's bad news. Disregarding his warning, Lucy continues to seduce Joey and invites him into the house.
Elsewhere, Shirley's first day working in the burger van is a huge success. Back at home, however, things go wrong when she finds the birthday card that Ben wrote out for Heather. Shirley is furious that nobody reminded her about Heather's birthday and Phil is worried as she appears grief-stricken once more.
