Rob asks Helen about some new maternity tops she has had delivered, querying the cost and style. With their low necklines Rob thinks they're inappropriate and points out that he'd be happy to take Helen into town to look in charity shops instead. Rob reminds Helen that it was she who pointed out that they shouldn't waster money (mentioning Peggy's cash gift). Helen enjoys helping Tom with his black pudding recipe, but leaves him to do the tasting. Helen thinks Joe is having Tom on as Tom reveals Joe's secret ingredient - used teas leaves. Rob's surprised to see Helen at the shop and quibbles with Tom about the black pudding - over Tom supposedly bypassing Rob over this new line in the shop. Rob's certain there are better ways to make the shop profitable. Kirsty tries three times to call Helen but has to leave messages. Fallon's so grateful to Kirsty for helping her and Emma with their wedding event today. Emma's chuffed that they 'aced' their biggest catering job to date. They make a toast to a great success.
