Corrie weekly update - twerking out with a pound shop hairdo

Corrie weekly updates from 1995
All the wit and warmth of Weatherfield, none of the waffle

Tracy’s blackmailing Carla and she tells her she has to put pressure on Nick to sell the Bistro and move away. Carla kow-tows to Tracy and it’s all “Yes, Tracy. No, Tracy. If Nick doesn’t receive a higher offer than Robert’s then it’s yours, Tracy.”  But Nick does receive another offer and it comes from Leanne. Ken offers to give Leanne the money to buy into the Bistro, using Simon’s inheritance from Deirdre.  When Tracy finds out that Ken’s willing to back Leanne after he refused to do the same for her and Robert, she’s not best pleased. 

There was a great scene between Carla and Tracy this week when Carla tells Tracy she’s doing her a favour by forcing her out of the Street. “This is exactly the kick up the tush that I needed to get out of this place,” Carla says. "Oh! So that's what's happened is it? I've done you a favour?" smirks Tracy before going in for the kill. "No. I'll tell you what's happened, shall I? You've become my bitch, babe. Always knew you had it in you".  And another lovely line when Tracy finds out that Leanne wants to buy into the Bistro. She tells her there’s no way she can afford it. “You even get yer hair done in a pound shop!”

Over at the Bistro it’s Steph’s 21st birthday. She celebrates in style on a night out with Andy before having to go to court go give evidence at Jamie’s trial. The scumbag is given a three year stretch for his revenge porn nastiness.

At Streetcars in his new job, Tim gets his feet under the table and his hands in the biscuit tin. He calls a staff meeting with Eileen and Michael. Item number one on the agenda is biscuits. “What’s item number two?” Eileen asks. “Nothing. There isn’t one,” he replies.  With Eileen out of the cab office, Tim and Michael play on the switch. “Come in Houston! Come in Houston!”

Meanwhile, Phelan shows his true colours when he throttles Anna up against the wall inside Roy’s Rolls. Kev walks in just as it’s happening and demands to know what’s going on. He knows now that Phelan’s not all he seems and tries to warn Eileen off him but she’s deaf to his words and has her eye on Pat Phelan, you can tell.  Mind you, Kevin still doesn’t know what happened between Pat and Anna, not yet anyway.

Poor Izzy’s in a state this week. She’s in so much pain that she goes to buy more dope from a dodgy bloke in a dodgy pub called The Blue Ghost.  The dealer sells her a bag of herbs, not the cannabis she was after, and when she goes back to complain she gets a bit roughed up.  You’re not in Frescho any more, Izzy. I don’t think The Blue Ghost has a returns policy. She calls Gary who goes to collect her and she’s in bits. Gary gets her to open up about how much pain she’s in and how she can’t go back to the doc as the tablets he gives her makes her hallucinate and she can’t look after little Jake. Gary determines to help her the best way he can. Oh, he’s lovely is Gary.

Sally continues with her campaign to become Weatherfield councillor, as does Norris this week.  When Frescho announce they’ve been given the go-ahead to build a new superstore, the locals want to know if Sally’s for or against. Sally hasn’t a clue if she’s in camp No Frescho or Pro Frescho. 

Alya’s new mate Rana who turned up last week is still a mash-up of hair and white noise. What we do know about her is that she’s a nurse and throws a sickie to have lunch in the Bistro with Zeedan. For that (throwing a sickie while working for the NHS) I dislike her already. She gets a job in the medical centre and looks for a new place to live.
And finally this week there’s an open day at the Victoria Court gym. Audrey signs up for a Twerk Out while Gail wants a M&D day. “Mother and Daughter day, M&D” she tells Audrey who replies, “M&D? I’d rather have a G&T!”

And that’s just about that for this week.

Given that Jake is also Gary's son, him being determined to help does not make him lovely. He should have been helping all along. If Izzy is stressed from taking care of him, it is only his responsibility to do more.
