Maggie tells Elsie that Hilda is gossiping about Alan. Ernie sweet talks Annie into singing "There'll Always Be an England" at the '40s night. Hilda tells Elsie she was sacked because she knew too much about Alan and Rita. Norma excitedly tells Emily that she won't be alone this Christmas. Ken is annoyed when Emily congratulates him and Norma. He meets Norma and reads her the full-length poem. Norma realises it's over. They agree to be friends but Norma breaks down in the ginnel, unaware that Jerry has seen her. Elsie decides to ask Rita what's going on. Norma tells Emily she was joking about her and Ken. Rita tells Elsie there's nothing between Alan and her - it's the booze she's got to worry about. Written by GusF
