Norman Bates with a Briefcase - the Richard Hillman story

With a foreword by actor Brian Capron (Richard Hillman)

A Perfect Duet. The Diary of Roy and Hayley Cropper

With a foreword by Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley Cropper)


Craig Googles Faye’s symptoms when she continues to worry why she’s getting so fat. “Do you bruise easily?” he reads from the laptop screen. “No,” she replies. “Do you have Cushing’s Disease?” he offers.  She pulls a face, thinks. “No,” she replies. Then, hesitant, as Craig’s eyes scan the Google results he asks her quietly. “Could you be pregnant?”  “No! No!” she screams. “I can’t be, I’m not!”  But after what she got up to with a boy called Jackson at school, she knows there might be a chance. She and Craig nip to the corner shop and while Craig creates a kerfuffle with some boxes of tea-bags, Faye nicks a pregnancy test kit, takes it home, and it proves positive. Craig keeps her secret, for now, but it’s only a matter of time before the news will be all over the Street. 
Dev says bye-bye and goes to Mumbai this week to look after some kids he’s never met in his life before, leaving his own kids home alone with two manic mad women to look after them. Mary is given charge of the kids and Sophie’s looking after the shop, so as Mary points out to Julie, she’s in the middle of the Venn diagram, looking after anything else. “We must play to our strengths,” says Mary to Julie, “… and yours are stitching knickers and looking cheery in a cardi.” To be fair to Mary, she does have a point.

Owen’s ex-wife Linda arrives this week. She hasn’t been seen since she walked out on the kids when they were babies. Owen had told the girls that the reason their mum left was because she couldn’t handle Izzy’s disability, but the truth was she had an affair.  Anyway, she waltzes back in with her lovely shiny hair, there’s tears and anger and then Katie starts meeting her mum in private, clearly wanting to get close while Izzy’s anger continues to keep her away from the woman who deserted them both.

It’s Amy’s 11th birthday and Steve and Michelle ask her out for a pizza but she’s not sure she wants to go out with her dad. “Mum says you’re not right in the head!”. Steve continues getting better this week, coming out of his depression with some anti-depressants and love and support from Michelle and Liz. He even tries a few hours on the cab office switch while Fat Brenda takes up the harmonica and new driver Barry gets lost.

And that's just about that for this week. Remember, you can sign up to get these Corrie weekly updates by email at http://www.corrie.net/updates/weekly/subscribe.htm

Here it is in a nutshell for Katy Cavanagh's character Julie and probably why Katy decided to pack it in. 'They' have wasted an excellent opportunity to make Julie as vibrant and important as she could have been and basically-- what Mary said!

So Steve is on medication and suddenly he's coming out of depression....It doesn't work that fast, if at all. In fact medication doesn't always work. I still applaud Corrie as well as emmerdale for bringing mental health issues into the limelight, we need to end the stigma associated with such illnesses.
