Preview of tonight's Coronation Street - Thurs 8 Dec

Thursday 8th December 2016
NICK’S SUSPICIONS GROW When Leanne tells Nick that Toyah’s invited them to Liverpool for Christmas, Nick happily agrees, knowing Peter will be disappointed. Feeling guilty for taking his son away at Christmas, Leanne offers to take Peter shopping for Simon’s present. Nick’s alarmed to learn that both Leanne and Peter are out Christmas shopping and fears they are together. Their shopping complete, Leanne and Peter find the car has been clamped in the car park. As they await release, they chat easily and listen to the radio, Leanne admitting a childhood obsession with Bros. As talk turns to their own history, Peter and Leanne have clearly put the bad times behind them...but could it be there is something more there than just nostalgia?
HAS ROY FOUND THE ANSWER TO HIS PRAYERS? Yasmeen’s irritated by Nessa’s brazenness and berates Nessa for her affair with Cathy’s husband. As the women  square up and Roy gets agitated, Cathy calls a halt to the row. Hearing Nessa bragging about being a magnet for men, Cathy finally unleashes her fury at her sister for her affair with Alan. Nessa’s stunned as Cathy throws her out. Cathy tells Roy she’s sure to fail him as a wife, like she did Alan, and suggests they should call off the wedding. Could this be the answer Roy needs or can he comfort Cathy when she needs him most?
BILLY THROWS IN THE TOWEL Billy prepares to return to the Church. Todd admits he’d prefer him to have a normal job but has accepted his decision as Billy is pensive. However Billy informs the Bishop that his heart no longer lies with the Church, as he wants to put his relationship first. The Bishop’s shocked when Billy quits his job but has he made the right decision?
ELSEWHERE Mary tries to avoid Norris but he tracks her down. Not wishing to discuss her past, Mary orders Norris to forget she ever mentioned it. In the face of Norris’ pestering, Mary insists she made peace with what she did many years ago but is Mary being truthful?

Coronation Street as you've never seen it before

Some rather apocalyptic scenes from Weatherfield today as the Manchester Evening News releases photos of the old Coronation Street set off Quay Street in Manchester, looking a little worse for wear.

Almost a year after the tours of the old set finished, and three years after the completion of the new purpose built set at Salford Quays, the cobble-less wasteland is now a far cry from the Street we know and love. Windows and doors have been removed from the famous terrace, the nameless pub at the end of the row is now an empty shell with the sign removed, and overgrown weeds have started taking over – it’s as if the residents of Coronation Street fled some kind of disaster 'Day of the Triffids' style.

An 'Urban Explorer' supplied the photographs to the Manchester Evening News, who have contacted ITV for comment on the site.

The old Granada Studios site is to be redeveloped as part of the St John’s Quarter project, which will include apartments, shops and a theatre, as well as a luxury hotel.
Looking at these photos, they have a lot of work to do!

With Peter’s support, Daniel reports Denise as missing. Meanwhile, Leanne, Nick and Simon ready to leave for Simon’s counselling session but there’s no sign of Peter.

Elsewhere Yasmeen urges Cathy to confront Nessa over Alex’s parentage but Cathy refuses to rock the boat worried it could cause Roy even more stress. But reality hits Roy as his anxieties begin to spiral out of control.
ELSEWHERE Erica confides in Norris how worried she is about Mary. Finding Mary in the flower shop, Norris comforts that he only wants to help but he’s left speechless when Mary reveals a huge bombshell.

This Friday! Coronation Street expert gives talk for fans

Coronation Street expert Mark Llewellin will be celebrating Corrie's 56th anniversary with a talk on our favourite show.

Mark will be giving the talk for fans at the Daisy Nook garden centre in Failsworth, Manchester.

The talk will take place on Friday 9th December 2016 at 7pm.

Mark is a friend of the Coronation Street Blog and a few of us have had the pleasure of meeting him and hearing his stories from the Street.  Believe me, he's great to listen to and has some wonderful anecdotes from the cobbles. 

If you're in the area, I highly recommend you pop along to the talk.

All details here of where to find Daisy Nook Garden Centre.

Coronation Street Episode Review Monday 5th December


There's some festive cheer on the cobbles tonight as Tracy is kind to Mary and gives her the morning off for her hospital appointment. And then she goes and spoils it all by saying something mean about Maria. Venus De Milo (pretty but not all there), bunny boiler, damaged goods, illegally married a gay Argentinian hairdresser - these are all among her choice words. Poor Maria, she's either stuck in the salon, sweeping hair, dealing with David and listening to Audrey making her "noise", or she's having all the drama. In tonight's ep, she a) sacks her lawyer b) returns to the scene of the snog for some more sofa shenanigans with Aidan, c) faces up to the fact she might spend a year in the big house d) turns down Aidan's suggestion that they get jiggy with it in a hotel e) changes her mind and goes to meet Aidan at said hotel, only to discover he's taken Eva instead f) chews out Kate for her involvement in Maria's arrest (I cheered, reader, I cheered) g) slaps Aidan h) breaks her shoes and i) snogs Adam to make Aidan jealous. And its only Monday!


Elsewhere on the street, Peter and Ken go help Daniel clear out his spartan flat. Peter turns detective and gets Daniel to confess that he hasn't seen his mother for six years and she hasn't written, emailed, phoned or even Whatsapped her son. Ken is already outraged that Denise left ("she's a disgrace to motherhood" - hey Ken, it's Mr Pot here! I'm saying mean things about the kettle!) and so Peter doesn't tell him the truth. If they want to find Denise, they just need to take a Transpennine service from Piccadilly to Hotton and then get a bus to Emmerdale.


Mary is given the all clear at the hospital and Norris is keen to celebrate - seeing as Dev said he'd buy champagne. Mary is still not happy though and Erica discovers that Mary's bucket list is actually a ring binder of clippings featuring one Maureen Nuttall, whom Erica suspects is Mary's mother, but Mary doesn't 'fess up one way or the other. Curiouser and curiouser.


Over in the cafe, Alex awaits a five o'clock delivery from his mother, which turns out to be - his mother. Yay, the Loch Nessa Monster is back! And she's not been there five minutes before she's sniffing around a new fella, in this case Brian ("such a masculine name"), and he's sniffing around her too, like Kirk after a bacon barm. Roy has a stress-rash, Cathy is stress eating, but I'm already enjoying this potential Corrie comedy gold coupling.


And finally, Rana tries to play matchmaker 'twixt Alya and Zeedan, but Zeedan, despite turning up to the rencontre, has no interest in making up and tells Alya to leave town. However, after a drink with
Kate, who today is wearing what appears to be a Hungarian folk dancing jacket, suggests that Alya moves into her spare room. I look forward to them out-self-righteoussing each other.
