A Perfect Duet. The Diary of Roy and Hayley Cropper

With a foreword by Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley Cropper)

It’s a bit shorter than usual this week, as the Bishop might have said to the actress. There were only three episodes of Corrie due to Friday night’s double episode being moved to this coming Sunday because of football. Which is good news for the actress, and indeed for the Bishop, as next week’s will be longer.  And so without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.

It’s Gavin’s funeral and Gail turns up with Andy at her side. It’s both complicated and dull this storyline, to me any road, and I want it over and done with. Michael’s ex-wife Susan and his aunt Barbara are at the funeral and both of them wonder why Michael’s not there. Gail tells them Michael’s not well, but both women want to speak to Michael and Gail’s having a hard time putting them off.

Gail also gives short shrift to Bethany and books her on a plane back to Milan to be with her mam. But Bethany wants to stay in England and tries to butter up Audrey, which works. Audrey then fights Bethany’s corner with Gail, which fails.  
Sally spits sarcasm to Jenny across the table in Roy’s Rolls when she sees her with Kevin. Is it really because Sally is making a stand for her friend Rita who we haven’t seen her interact with since 1982, or could it be she’s secretly jealous of Kevin’s new fling?

In the back room of the Rovers, Michelle sorts through a box of stuff (we’ve all got one) and finds a stash of letters from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. Why Corrie keep referring to HMRC in the dialogue by the no longer used term of Inland Revenue is beyond me.  Steve’s been stuffing the letters in a box and denying he’s in debt to the tax man to the tune of thousands of pounds.


Speaking of tunes, young Amy murders “My Heart Will Go On” on her recorder for nanna Liz, whose ears cannot bear it. Michael Rodwell, however, might welcome the thought.

Steve thinks he can see a way out of his debt problems, bingo and by jove, he’s got it! He asks Michelle to marry him. Well, I guess it must have made sense to him at the time.

And that's just about that for this week. Remember, you can sign up to get these Corrie weekly updates by email at

We are just counting how many times Gail ends a sentence with "the shock could kill him" - who cares? No doubt ex wife and/or Auntie Barbra will soon be turning up on Gail's doorstep despite being invisible for the past 30 years. Yawn.

Shouldn't Steph want to meet Andy's real parents or siblings? Where are they?

And once again Amy shows that she's inherited her mother's manipulation and cunning by convincing Nana Liz to pay her to stop playing the recorder.

Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!
oops, I mean, Gail! Gail! GAIL!
'Boy oh boy, she's in real trouble now' (sorry sensitive people, that was sarcasm).
Has anyone noticed her eyes are fluttering more and more. Let's hope she keeps fluttering them and flys right off the radar. I did not invest in over 30 years as a viewer to watch the Platt show. I want my Corrie back.
whew, that felt good....
