After her financial situation with Gary gets worse.
Still living at No.8, Sarah and Gary are forced to sleep in the living room, on a lilo, after Audrey's dry rot forves her to also move in with David and Gail. Aware of the inconvenience she's causing lately, Audrey offers Gary the contract to fix her dry rot, as long as the price is right.
With things beginning to look up for Gary, he's thrilled to see Nicola back on the street, however his excitement is short-lived after he's reminded that he's behind with his maintenance payments. But having just landed the contact for Audrey's house, he assures her that it's all in hand.
