In surely the least well guarded Coronation Street storyline of the year, cabbie Lloyd drew on his mental arithmetic to work out that his grumpy married ex Mandy's daughter Jenna was in fact his long lost daughter.
But as the truth emerged, both Mandy and Jenna, who had been brought up to believe Mandy's late husband was her dad, made it clear they didn't want to play happy families.
I get the impression Jenna (a winning performance by actress Krissi Bohn) may soften her "Don't come near me" views over Lloyd during the coming weeks.
Lloyd, while angry over the deception for the last 28 years, is meanwhile over the moon:"I've a daughter, I'm a dad!".
Meanwhile newly smitten Beth got her claws, or rather tonsils into dopey Kirk as she lunged at him in the Rovers for an amorous clinch,to his delight.
Funny moment when he gushed: "I've never met a girl as gorgeous as you" - (did he forget to wear his contacts?) only for his exes Julie and Fiz, who were looking on, to exclaim, miffed: "What about me? "... '"And me?"
Tina was given £5,000 up front by a grateful Owen as she finally agreed to the surrogacy deal for Izzy, only to give the money straight to Tyrone, whom her boyfriend Tommy owes money, and his partner, panto villainess Kirsty.
Tina revealed that her father ha ended up killing himself over debts, thus explaining in part her willingness to go to such drastic measures to get the money. It will all end in tears...
