Back at The Vic, Alfie is planning a German market with some of the other locals, and it's decided that he should go on a short trip to Germany to get the stock. The Branning brothers are the main instigators behind this plan, and Kat can see that her lover has an ulterior motive as he wants to get her alone. Kat informs Alfie that he shouldn't go as they can't afford the trip, but she is thwarted when he receives a ticket to Cologne and £500 from an 'anonymous' sender. Later, Kat panics when she receives a text saying: "Finally, I've got you all to myself."
Meanwhile, Cora is furious when Tamwar mentions Lauren's accident to her, as Tanya has failed to tell her anything about the crash. Tanya tries to apologise for not letting her know, but their relationship remains strained. At the same time, Lauren wonders why Joey won't return her calls and speculates that he could be annoyed that she let him take the blame for the crash. Lauren tells Tanya that she is considering admitting the truth. When the police arrive to question Lauren, will she reveal what really happened?
Elsewhere, Bianca's trial at the salon gets off to a rocky start when a customer complains to Poppy about her. Bianca fears the worst, but is relieved when Poppy explains that the customer in question complains about everyone and her trial will therefore continue as planned.
Also today, Poppy decides to take Joey in as a lodger to help pay the bills - but Fatboy is left worrying about the pair living under the same roof.
