Lorraine's crisis management skills are stretched when Valco is struck by a bout of the flu. Her strategy is to spread the bug-less members of the team across the store, a sound enough plan until Lorraine puts Leighton on the tills, a move Julie advises against. Leighton isn't the most intellectual of creatures and he feels the full force of a mother's rage after selling booze to some underage kids. To give Lorraine her due, she has the situation under control, until someone tips off Gavin.

Even on a good day, Katie finds it tricky to deal with the well-meaning but nerve-testing Neville, so a hefty hangover from a freshers party the night before really isn't helping. A visit from a fluey Kieran should cheer Katie up, but, instead, it drives home just how different the directions their lives are heading in are. Andy, meanwhile, isn't happy covering the deli counter and, after one button-pushing comment from Sharon too many, he snaps.
