Ian tells Alice that he and Adam hope to be up and running with the pizza van project in time for the Ambridge Fete. Alice is mortified when she learns Ian and Adam were asked to buy out her share of Home farm. Alice promises Chris that he won’t lose out financially in the divorce but asks him to leave her family out of it. Chris points out she brought Brian along to the forensic accountant – he thinks she’s just as devious as Brian. Jakob tries to calm them down and says Kate’s a nervous wreck because Chris brought Spiritual Home into it. Chris retorts that Kate was nasty about Amy – he’s not going easy on any of them! Later Chris apologises to Jakob – he’s just trying to get what he’s entitled to. Lily comments on Freddie’s new jacket. Freddie admits that Chelsea suggested he try a more managerial look. Lily says she’d heard Chelsea runs rings around him! Later when Lily tells Freddie she knows he’s trying really hard, Freddie admits he envies her; she’s so good at everything. Lily says the envy works both ways – he’s always got the attention, not to mention the estate! They agree to combine their talents. However when Freddie nearly messes up a booking, Lily says he’s got a long way to go. Freddie’s determined to show her – Lower Loxley will thrive thanks to him. He bets her a million pounds that in two years’ time the success of Lower Loxley will be all of his making – whereas Lily thinks he’ll still be reliant on her expertise. They shake on it.
