Coronation Street's prettiest pair Tina and Tommy, friends who have long had the hots for each other but not dared declare it, finally, quite touchingly, got it together after he told her "I love you" after she comforted him following his grandfather's death.
Jason, never a man of many words or brain cells, could only mumble "I dunno" in not exactly welcoming reaction when his mother Eileen asked him what he thought of her decision to move fireman Paul in permanently as her live in lover now his Alzheimer's suffering wife Lesley has been consigned to the care home. Bitchy Tracy summed up the situation rather more pithily, sneering at Paul at "lining up a new girlfriend now your wife's gone round the twist".
Sally made a surprise financial offer to Carla to become her partner in Underworld using her scratch card money.
Peter and Leanne's meeting with the mediation counsellor over custody of Simon ended unhappily, with neither side wanting to budge and Leanne wasting no time in pointing out how alcoholic Peter keeps going off the wagon.
Karl's lies over his secret gambling debts were exposed to a furious Stella after bailiffs turned up at the Rovers demanding the £3,200 he owed. Eva had to borrow money from the Bistro's till to allay matters and Stella threw Karl out, denouncing him as a pathetic lying scumbag.
Sunita, still conveniently home alone while Dev is on holiday, had offered to lend her new confidante Karl £300 but in the end he gave it back, admitting he would just spend the money on more gambling rather than towards his debts. He ended taking up Sunita's invitation to stay overnight on her sofa while she looked sympathetic and batted her eyelashes, promising she and Karl would get through the crisis "together". I think we all know how this going to end..
