With due regard to the recently departed, hello, good evening and welcome. I am not Glenda who is away on holiday but I am here to let you know about events this week in Weatherfield.

Glenda ended last week's update with Chesney taking Katie and Joseph back into his home. And he was mighty glad that Joseph was there. But something was wrong - indeed it was so wrong that instead of getting Katie into bed he slept on the sofa. And indeed before long Katie had worked out that it was not going to work and stormed back to Anna's. Fiz decided to take matters in hand and told Sinead that Katie was gone and there was a Sinead shaped hole in Chesney's life. Sinead is far from stupid however and did not fall for it.

Going slightly back in time the week was of course dominated by the Bank Holiday. And Anna was having a BBQ and Sally was having a Garden Party as she was in full upward social climbing mode. Who would have the most guests? Who would have the best barbie / party? Who would fall out over the garden fence? Yes it was a right old carry on. Steve and Michelle at Sally's and bored out of their minds, Fay stuck at Anna's with Tim at Sally's. Sean hearing strange noises and vanishing (see below). And the bottle of ketchup. Someone had put a bottle of ketchup on the fence. Anna's party had run out. The bottle was picked up. It was Sal's. All hell breaks loose and Anna and Sally are fighting over the ketchup until the bring the fence down.

Roy and Hayley return from holiday and first have to be told that Sylvia has abandoned ship. Roy is understandably morose that his mother cannot face the cancer and has runaway to Hastings. (I drove through there the other day - apart from the sunshine I am not sure that Weatherfield is not more attractive). At least attending the two parties takes their minds off their own problems for a little while - and they have been on a very long drive and have been everywhere, they've been everywhere.

Sean was hearing noises off - so where did he go, oh yes next door where Kylie is on her own and after tidying a plate away suddenly goes into labour making the oddest noises. Sean summons the cavalry - Gail, Leanne and David. This being Weatherfield and a baby being borne prematurely on a bank holiday you can't get an ambulance for love nor money and for the next 20 minutes or so Kylie continues to make the oddest noises ever heard on a soap. Somehow the only award she will get will be the one for over-acting. Anyway Gail delivers a baby (Leanne is about as much use as a wet weekend as she keeps reading from the manual). No midwife either. Of course they all turn up after the baby is born. The baby luckily looks like Kylie, not David or Nick. And eventually David and Kylie decide she will be called Lily.

Luckily Sean finding the family in the Bistro prevented David telling Leanne that he was responsible for Nick losing his rag and being in the path of the lorry when it crashed into them. Later David cannot remember what was so important. Tina is not sympathetic and she knows she does.

But the baby drama is not over. With David out of earshot Granny Gail wants to know which of her sons is responsible and starts telling Kylie she needs to arrange a DNA test. Meddlesome Granny.

Nick remains in a coma and we spend very little time in the hospital. Oh and Kylie is so fit and the baby is OK so no hospital visit for her. Gail is trying out some new clogs and nearly falls downstairs - she ought to be more careful or she will be in hospital.

And we end with Roy and Hayley preparing for the operation. Roy has arranged a special meal which Jenna and Anna serve before the horrors of hospital. Hayley disappears, allegedly to buy some magazines, for a couple of hours and Roy is getting worried about making sure she has everything. Mary brings in three large books and there is a lengthy discussion over the various authors, the only one I know is Dan Brown. Then Hayley re-appears - she has gone shopping and bought some new slippers - really pushing the boat out Hailes. And then we get to the hospital and whilst we know (thank you for spoiling everything) the outcome there are several touching moments of devotion as Roy prepares to leave Hayley overnight (on nil by mouth) but promises to return in the morning.

I think I missed Karl's stag party - it did not go well and was called off after the first round. So hardly worth mentioning with so much else going on. And St Ella is not sure if she should get married anyway whilst Nick is laid up. Jason on the other hand is not sure about Karl and they have a bit of a bust up in the gents until Dev calms them down. Karl admits to torching Jason's van.

And Craig is causing concern for Beth and Kirk. He must be worried about going back to school.

And that's just about that for this week. Remember, you can sign up to get these Corrie weekly updates by email at http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/corrieweeks and I'll be back next week around this time.

This week's writers were Jonathan Harvey, Simon Crowther, Peter Whalley, Mark Burt and Mark Wadlow. The director was Nicky Higgens. Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team at http://coronationstreetupdates.blogspot.com/2008/11/exclusive-all-current -corrie-writers.html

What was the point of Ches and Katie getting back together? Just a filler I suppose. Same dialogue as every other time. Her making the big exit out the door exclaiming 'this is the last time' etc. Must be a filler. Eileen too..so annoying moaning and carrying on - dreadful stuff.
Gail - head up Kylie's hooha exclaiming 'what a business' - bizarre that one.
Finally coming close to the end of Karl which will probably go out with a fizzle because it's been dragged on too long as per.
Haley and Roy..love them to bits but I don't think I'll be able to watch their story come to and end - so sad but terrific acting I must say.
