The cafe and post office are up for auction this evening and Brenda has a shock announcement to make to Bob. Somehow, *whispers* I would say due to a dodgy loan shark, she has got her paws on the money to dig him out of a hole. He agrees to let her be a partner in his little empire and it's pulled from the lot. But her daughter is not happy when she finds out where the money came from. With Nicola refusing to move out of Mill Cottage, Lexi takes the up front approach, but Nicola turns on the water works and her house mate finds herself taking back her demand.
