Don’t you just love soap? In half an episode, Bill Webster returned after months away, declared his love for Aunty Pam and told everyone he was going to wed her then he fell down flat with a heart attack, ended up in intensive care – and all before the adverts came on. Bill in hospital, however, was the catalyst for getting Kevin all mushy-eyed and loved up on red wine with Sally on the sofa. A kiss on the lips later and they’re upstairs renewing acquaintance again until the morning after when Kev’s taking it for granted that he’s back with Sally and flings his overalls at her for a hot wash. Sally is not best pleased, tells Kev to stuff it and chucks him and baby Jack out before waltzing to the Bistro with boyfriend Jeff. Kev’s attempts to woo his wife back with a bottle of plonk and a cheap bouquet from Dev’s shop fail to have the required result.
But never fear, there’s more canoodling across the cobbles as Anna and Owen get to spend more time together, which is kind of nice to see but would be even better if Eddie’s side of the bed had been allowed to cool down. And if Owen didn’t have such a particularly nasty streak stamped through him and you know it’s going to get stamped all over Anna sometime soon.
Over at Carla’s flat, she overdoses on sleeping pills but manages to ring Peter for help before she slips into a coma. It’s all been Peter and Carla this week, with Leanne giving Peter ultimatums and hard stares. Doesn’t she know he was once a bigamist and therefore having two women on the go is playing to his strengths? If she’d read these weekly updates you see, she’d have known to stay well clear of me laddo. Anyway, Carla moves in with Maria and little Liam and Kirk moves out and moves in with Ches.
Actually, do you know what? There’s not been much else happened this week. I’ve just had to check my notes that I scribble on auto-pilot while watching the Street, to see if there’s owt that I’ve missed and there’s not. Well, there was Chris and Russ and Lloyd and Cheryl struggling and failing to get along but that’s been so dull we’ll give that a miss. And there’s been Steve and Tracy and Becky but that’s trundling along doing nowt much either, so we’ll give that a miss too and you can all go home. Class dismissed.
And that's just about that for this week.
This week's writers were Julie Jones, Joe Turner, Damon Rochefort and David Lane. Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team at:
