Greetings and welcome. Special notice: this week’s update covers only Wednesday 24th and Friday 26th June. Monday 29th June episodes will be covered next week.
This week the update comes to you a little hot and bothered with fingers sticking to the keyboards (yuck) as the temperature’s rising, barometer’s getting low, according to our sources, the Street’s the place to go. So tonight for the first time, just about half past seven, for the first time in history, it’s going to be raining Molly and Kevin. (Rubbish, get on with it – Ed.) And so, without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.
Mid-life is probably the best time to have a crisis because then no-one’s surprised if you take up with a young girl and drive a fast car. Well, unless you’re a woman, then that might raise an eyebrow, well, it would round our way. Anyway, Kev Webster’s checked his calendar and the time is right to have his mid-life crisis, just about, oh, now. But if he’s not careful, he could do himself an injury. After years of drinking pints, eating pies and an annual birthday bonk from Sally, he’s now running around after Molly in a sweat. It’s just not right and I don’t like this one bit but Molly’s attraction to Kevin is fuelled by Tyrone who’s down in the dumps over Jack taking up with Connie.
In a wonderful scene this week, Connie was at Jack’s house doing her knitting and Jack held out his hands as she wound the yarn around them. It was such a touching scene and for this fan, brought a lump to the throat. Anyway, Sally doesn’t yet know that Kev’s splashing on the Old Spice she bought him for Christmas 1987 is for Molly to sniff at, not her. She’s too busy congratulating Rosie on becoming something big in ladies’ knickers when Rosie decides to invest in the factory after a night of lust with Luke Strong.
In the Rovers, Steve has a word with Hayley and tells her he’s not happy that Slug’s back in Becky’s life. Neither is Hayley when she finds out and sits Becky down for a talking-to about Slug. “He’s trouble with a capital T,” (Tslug?) warns Hayley, which for Becky is part of Slug’s charm. Hayley’s never been the same since Slug nicked Roy’s Woody.
Hayley is also confidante to Fiz this week who tells her that she’s now engaged to John Stape. I was waiting for Hayley to reprise the “Trouble with a capital T” about John Stape to Fiz, but I think even Hayley’s given up on this one.
The Windass clan have their day in court. Three Windasses set off and only two return as Gary gets sent down to the big house (I know all the terminology, me) for breaking into Audrey’s house. David’s overjoyed at the news Gary’s in jail but the people he’s hoping most to impress – Tina and Graeme – think David’s just sick. And as we all know, he is. When David finds out that Tina’s taken to wearing her push-up bra to attract Jason Dimshaw, he’s not going to best pleased, no.
Meanwhile, Ma Grimshaw showed the slightest hint of a smile this week when Jesse bought her a drink in the Rovers and told her that he was divorced. Are we sure, Eileen? That’s what the last fella told you too and look what happened there.
When Tony Gordon starts a sentence with the words “I could murder…” you should probably worry. But when he finishes it off with “…a curry…” then takeaway Tony was only trying to help induce Maria’s labour. She’s 16 months pregnant and that baby needs to come out of there soon before it takes up residency and starts paying council tax.
And finally, it was Steve McDonald’s 35th birthday this week. One of his gifts which he sported with glee was a woollen tank-top, the likes of which were last seen circa 1975 as worn by Jimmy Tarbuck.
And that’s just about that for this week.
