When Ian finds out what is going on, he suggests with a heavy heart that they should put the market stall up for sale.

With one crisis averted, Phil decides to get his own life back on track by concentrating on The Vic. Marching into the pub, he demands that the prices should be increased and the music should be turned up! As he gets back behind the bar, is Phil getting back to his old self?
