Proving the spirit of Blanche Hunt lives on in the shape of a small boy with dark curly hair. Little Simon plays a blinder this week. He tells Carla he hates her, as well as he might, and demands to know when mum Leanne's coming home. Peter tells him she's not coming back, which sets Simon off on another one, arms crossed, eyes stern and bottom lip trembling. Blanche would have been proud.
Eileen's desperate for a fella. Her fella Paul is desperate for a shoulder to cry on. And her fella Paul's wife is in desperate need of proper social care. It's a desperate situation, made worse when Paul's pipes burst. Paul and Lesley have nowhere to stay while their house is in a state of watery woe and so Eileen, poor desperate, lonely Eileen, invites them to come stay with her. She'll sort out Paul's pipes all right. As for Jason, he's turfed out of his room and goes to stay with Tina in her old flat.
And what's Tina doing in her old flat? She's moved out of Tyrone and Kirsty's house, unable to stand the horrid Kirsty. I'd have done the same thing, she's a nasty piece, Kirsty. So when Tommy spots Kirsty in town hugging another fella he tells Tyrone who assumes that his girlfriend is having a fling. He even wonders if the baby she's carrying is really his. Kirsty's upset and tells Tyrone she's not cheating on him, she was meeting her cousin to set up a Valentine surprise of a sports car for a day.
Unable to cope with the baby and the pressure of having to pay the rent at the bank, young Katy leaves the baby alone in the house. He's fine, this time, and she arrives home by the back door just as Chesney returns to the front, so Chesney's none the wiser, for now. It'll end in tears, just you wait and see.
It's Eva's birthday this week and St. Ella throws a back room bash in the pub. She lures in three generations of the Platt clan in the shape of Nick, Gail and Audrey and Gail hits the wine to become quite the giddy kipper. It's a lovely comic scene, even if Stella was in it, made better when Gail and St. Ella turn up wearing the same blouse. "And I'd just like to point out that I bought this shirt before it went in the sale," says Gail.
Roy's not best pleased with his mum after she seems to support Milton's plan of opening the Beef Encouter restaurant despite Roy's objections. But after Sylvia has a think on, she remembers the help and support Roy and Hayley have shown her and knows she can't go along with Milton and his daft plan.
And that's just about that for this week.
This week's writers were Peter Whalley, Damon Rochefort and Jonathan Harvey. Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team at http://coronationstreetupdates.blogspot.com/2008/11/exclusive-all-current-corrie-writers.html
