Joe leaves Vicky a message, saying they should crack on with making the kissing boughs. He persuades Lynda to 'donate' some box hedge. As she cuts it, Joe tells her about Jim's interest in Blossom Hill Cottage. Lynda delights in talking about Oscar, but when Joe pipes up that Caz must want her own mum, Lynda snaps at him, and promptly nicks herself with the secateurs. When Joe calls back for the cuttings, Lynda apologises for biting his head off.
Caz and Lynda are careful with each other after last week's spat. When Caz tells Lynda that she's had an e-mail from her mum, Lynda senses her disappointment that it was just a few lines.
Helen's looking forward to meeting up with her old friends. Going alone means she won't worry about Leon feeling left out but she feels guilty that Annette's going to be home alone. Leon's obviously thought about that too, and turns up armed with drinks. Annette's flustered but invites him in. After he's plied her with drink and compliments, Leon comes on strong. Annette makes a feeble attempt to stop him, but when he kisses her a second time, she doesn't want him to stop.
