Seb Coe is keen to make an announcement about the future of the Olympic Stadium post-Games and is pushing for a decision from the ODC about which bid - West Ham or Spurs - is the right one to back.

When new Head of Legacy Fiona Healey comes up with a persuasive case for West Ham, Kay finds herself staying up all night to produce a sustainability audit in support of the Spurs bid.

Clarence House has asked the ODC to look at ways of linking the Twenty Twelve Olympics with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee: is 'Jubilympics' the perfect branding solution?

Daniel arrives for his first day at work as Ian's new PA, replacing Sally, who left for personal reasons at the end of episode two. Plus, budget cuts threaten the provision of adequate sanitary accommodation in the Athlete's Village.
