This week the update's packing its bags for a few days in the sun. I'm leaving next week's update in the very capable hands of Janet Waterhouse so be nice to her and I'll see you the week after next. But for now, without any further ado, here we go with this week's Coronation Street update.

In Weatherfield nick, Tracy goes about her strange ways and lies to the cops telling them that Gail's confessed to killing Joe by beating him up with a rolling pin. The cops buy it, Gail's in tears, Ken and Deirdre are in denial over their daughter's lies and this fan's left wishing that Tracy Barlow had never returned.
The Plattilsley boys do their best for their mum and David storms into the Rovers to have a battle with Ken and Deirdre over Tracy's lies. David tracks down the Polish polisher who worked at the Lakes cottage and wants to bribe her with cold, hard cash. Trouble is, he hasn't got any, so Nick nicks three hundred nicker from the knicker factory before the lads leg it to the Lakes to bribe a witness.
In the knicker factory, there's a leak in the ceiling, Carla's under pressure to finish an order and needs a new stitcher. Izzy gets the job and Kirk starts work in packing, over the moon to have a job handling ladies undies all day. He's still trying to work out what they all are.
Graeme continues to look after Tina and lust after Rosie. He gets Tina out of the flat for a breath of fresh air but she spies David's hand-made ‘Free Gail McIntyre' banner made from a bed sheet and stuck on the roof of the house, and she scuttles back indoors quick sharp.
Roy and Hayley are at odds over their future. Hayley wants a wedding, Roy just wants things legal and tidy. Why can't they have both? For now, it seems they can't even agree to disagree and fall out over a salsa dress.
And that's just about that for this week. A million thanks go to Janet Waterhouse for writing next week's update.
Coronation Street writers this week were Jonathan Harvey, Peter Whalley, John Kerr and Mark Burt. Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team.
