Aired Friday, Nov 27 2009 at 20:00 GMT on BBC One

Delighted to have finally tied the knot and spent a much-anticipated night in bed with Lucas, Denise puts her exercise bike up for sale. Following a passionate kiss with his wife, Lucas heads out and is surprised to find Phil fitting the spare tyre to the Jaguar. Pleased that Phil's not suspicious in the slightest, Lucas thanks him again for lending him the car for his wedding. Later, Denise is frustrated that Lucas is dragging his feet and hasn't started packing to go on their honeymoon yet. Meanwhile, Libby tells Darren that she's delighted about Owen keeping his promise not to interrupt Denise and Lucas's happy day. Having decided to take Heather's advice, Darren shows Libby a brochure for Barcelona and reveals that he's been saving up so that they can go away for New Year.

With their bags finally packed to go away to the Lake District for their honeymoon, Libby suggests that Denise and Lucas stay for a meal. Lucas, however, is distracted when he spots a council worker about to dig up Trina's tree. Around the table, everyone's talking about Trina's tree having been planted over night. Lucas is unnerved when Denise admits that she knows who was responsible. As Denise proposes a toast to his new wife and life, Denise admits that she knows he planted the tree because she noticed the mud on his shirt the previous night…

Later, Libby finds Liz by Trina's tree as Sugar the dog won't move. Libby expresses her concern about Owen but Liz reassures her that he'll be back.

Meanwhile, after an argument about suppliers, Peggy's mood is lifted when Grant calls to say that he's remortgaging his house to raise cash to help the rest of the family. Phil, however, has set the ball in motion to sell the Arches and when Ricky tells Pat about the potential business opportunity, Darren overhears. Later, just as Ian asks if Phil kept their previous conversation under wraps, he's stunned to hear from Darren that Phil's selling the Arches. Phil tries to reassure Grant that they're coping and that the situation isn't as bad as their mother's making out. The reality, though, is that they're sinking fast. Pat walks past the Arches and decides to make Phil an offer. He laughs off her proposition, but he realises that it's really an offer he can't refuse.

Phil sits in the Arches and looks at Pat's offer, while Peggy watches a man heading for the Arches with a 'For Sale' sign. She quickly races over and snatches the sign from him as the locals watch on. Furious at the mess they're in, Peggy reminds Phil about Grant's offer to help. Phil, however, assures his mother that he has it under control and decides to accept Pat's offer for the business. On hearing that Phil's sold the Arches to Pat, Peggy reveals that she's going to Portugal to see Grant. Later, when Max turns up at The Vic, Phil asks him to join him in his quest to fleece Ian of his cash.
