After the confrontation with her mum, Stacey asks Charlie not to tell anybody about what happened. Determined to make an effort, she tries to behave herself all day, leaving the rest of the family suspicious. Meanwhile, Paul goes to see Andy at the bookies. He tells him he wants out and is going to work at the shop â€“ but Andy won't accept that. As Paul leaves the bookies with another package, the police turn up and arrest him. Elsewhere, Andy is incredulous when Minty tells him that Sam has sold the Arches to Ian. When he confronts Sam, she admits it's true but he doesn't want to know the reasons why. Dennis is still uncomfortable lying to everyone and makes a decision to leave. Sharon stops him at the tube station and promises Dennis she will find a way for them to be together.
