Oh dear. It’s like watching You’ve been Framed. You know what’s coming, but it’s still painful to see! John/Colin’s sitting there happily munching Jaffa Cakes with Fizz, totally unaware that Chesney’s visit to Charlotte’s parents is about to bring a whole heap of trouble to his door – literally.
There’s a lot going on at the moment. Is Tracy poisoning Amy, or is the little minx poisoning herself (or pretending to), in an attempt to get her mum and dad back together? If she’s her mother’s daughter, then God knows what’s in her mind.
Amy must be a deep thinker (she’ll get that off Ken), because she doesn’t actually speak much. Just as well really. She looked as if she was having to be poked by a cattle prod to prompt her to spit her lines out this week – which was probably quite painful.
Some great expressions all round this week. Eileen and Julie’s faces when Sean sent Marcus packing in the Rovers! Sean’s great. Most of what he says is funny because no matter what his line is – in true Frank Carson style – it’s the way he tells ‘em.
See what I mean about guys hitting on Sian? Tommy got his come-uppance this week though (for now?), and YES, it meant we got to see Rosie, as she gave poor old Jase some serious grief at Eileen’s.
Rosie: “You are SO dumped. Get out!”
Jason (confused): “Well, no. I can’t really. This is me mum’s ‘ouse.”
Rosie (incredulous): “Could you BE any more petty?”
I’m gutted that Rosie’s not going to be in it for a while; it’s my highlight of the week watching her. Oh well. At least you’re never a more than couple of minutes away from a laugh in Corrie!
Sean’s “Pardon me all over the place,” Anna’s “Tess of the DUBBervilles” and Tracy’s “Amy’s writing is perfectly ‘eligible’ all made me smile, but my Grin of the Week this week is:
David: (about the customers' coffee stains)
“We could always paint them brown.”
Kylie: “Brown? This ain’t the 1970’s David.”
PS What were those coats Rita was wearing? Even an Eskimo would suffer from hot flushes if they were buttoned into one of those great things.
