Coronation Street weekly awards, August 9 - 13
Reinforcing the cliche award: Gold Star: Friday the 13th was pretty bad luck for a lot of people: Barlow's Bookies, Deirdre, Audrey, Natasha, Sophie and Sian.
Too little too late award: Gold Star: Stape protesting his love for Fiz as she's out the door on holiday without him.
Silver star: Lewis didn't rip off Audrey but she found out the hard truth about him anyway.
King of the Insults award: Gold Star: Stape again, he castigated Charlotte and Dev all in the space of an episode.
The walls have ears... and eyes award: Gold Star: Lewis distracted Deirdre with a kiss under the watchful eye of the CCTV! That came to come back and bite her and landed a cake on her face too.
Life in the slow lane award: Dusty star: Kirk. He figures in 20 years when Chesney's a billionaire, he'll still be his mate. And nothing else.
Slave Driver award: Gold Star: Carla must have cracked the whip over Owen's workers. I'm sure he said that factory would take six weeks to open and it's only been about two and a half.
Nose like an anteater award: Smelly star: Julie snuffling out the sardine sarnies!
Busted! Deirdre for kissing Lewis. Sophie and Sian for getting caught after the music festival.
Lines of the Week:
Chesney to John: "You know what, Stape, you give Scum a bad name!"
John: "The only person I can talk to is a delusional nutter who's got it into her thick skull that I actually fancy her when the truth is, she actually makes my flesh creep!" Charlotte: "It's us that belong together!"
Dev about Fiz leaving John: "Most women go home to their mothers. But then, I know her mother. Majorca is a better option."
Lewis to Deirdre: "I'm sure I'm not the first love-struck fool to put you on the spot!" (well, my monitor *did* need cleaning!)
Gail about David: "He can be very dynamic when he puts his mind to it." (Don't you mean demonic?)
Owen to Bill: "You kicked the bucket, Grandad!!" (Bill must be past it if he left a bucket on a board overhanging the road. Very dangerous!)
David teasing Nick about Natasha: "Tip her the wink, she'll even go to the toilet for you!"
Natasha: "No one's ever had to chase me" (And that, dear, is your problem)
Some really good episodes this week! Sophie and Sian got caught out, of course they would. Now they're pulled apart by fate and Sally Webster. Their real relationship is bound to come out, (literally and figuratively) soon. Hayley's hen night is next week, it's going to be a blast. I choose to believe that Lewis really did back away and leave Audrey with her money intact. I think he did have a few pangs of guilt along the way.
