With a foreword by Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley Cropper)
This has been a roller-coaster ride of a week on Coronation Street. A birth, a proposal, a rover returns and a snobby Sally too. Who could want for more? And so, without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.
The big story this week has been Faye giving birth. Craig does his best to prepare Faye for the birth, reading up about it on the internet, getting towels ready, while Faye remains convinced it’ll just magic itself away. It doesn’t, of course. Upstairs in the flat above the shop Faye goes into labour, screaming at Craig not to tell Anna, afraid that Anna won’t want her any more if she finds out what’s happened. Craig runs off to find Anna to give her the shock news and all hell breaks loose. Everyone rushes to the flat, an ambulance is called and Craig’s wrongly blamed for getting Faye pregnant. “I didn’t do it, I swear on Darryl’s life,” he tells his mum. Faye gives birth to a baby girl and while shocked grandparents Anna and Tim sit at her hospital bedside, Faye can’t bring herself to look at her child.
It’s the Butler Auction in the Rovers with Sean as camp compere along with Billy the Vicar. I wish Sean would stop patting the side of his imaginary lopsided beehive, he is not Bet Lynch, whatever he might wish. Norris bids to win Sally as his slave for the day and to the tune of one hundred pounds, he wins Sally’s services. As you can imagine, she is not best pleased. Norris has her scrubbing his door step and criticising Sally every time she stops for breath. It’s too much for Sal and she tells Norris where he can stick his rubber scrubber.
Sarah returns from Milan this week to sort out mi’lady, Bethany. Sarah tells the Platt clan that Bethany’s been expelled from school for shoplifting and she’ll be on the first plane back to Milan with her mum. I do hope not, she’s fun. It’s also fun having Sarah back, to wind up David and put him in his place in a way that no one else does, or can. Even Sarah has a pop at uncle David until Audrey tells her to be quiet. “He stuffed drugs in my dolly when I was little,” she replies. “I can say what I like.” Further winding David up, Sarah starts flirting with Callum when she realises how much David hates him. Meanwhile, Bethany winds up Jason by pretending that her mum still has feelings for him, feelings so strong that she keeps a shrine to him in their flat in Milan.
