Preview of tonight's double Corrie - Monday 18 April
IT’S A BAPTISM OF FIRE FOR BABY HARRY As Sarah prepares for the christening, she tells Harry that today they can finally say goodbye to the devil. Kylie’s concerned, thinking Sarah sounds a little crazy. When Nick snaps at Sarah, and belittles Harry’s christening, David’s puzzled at Nick’s uncharacteristic tone. As the congregation enter the church, Kylie confides in David that she’s worried Sarah’s built the whole thing up in her head as a kind of exorcism. As the godparents gather round the font, Harry screams in Sarah’s arms. Thrusting baby Harry at Nick, Sarah runs from the church.
IZZY AND GARY FACE A BACKLASH When Gary arrives for work, Sharif makes it clear he’s not welcome but reminding Sharif that he’s a partner in the business, Gary refuses to leave. Johnny explains to Izzy that for safety reasons, he can’t allow someone on dope to operate a machine. Izzy assures him she only uses weed for pain relief. Gary accuses Sharif of using Izzy’s situation to try to take back his share of the business.
GAIL’S UNHAPPY BIRTHDAY When Gail opens a birthday card from Martin, David, Kylie and Sarah realise with horror they’ve forgotten her birthday. When Nick realises it’s Gail’s birthday and he’d completely forgotten, he’s worried by his lapse in memory.
ELSEWHERE Maria suggests to Luke that now they’re engaged, he should move in with her. Luke’s thrilled. Chris calls in the pub with his son Sam and Liz is delighted to see him.
Monday 18th April
BILLY PUTS SARAH’S MIND AT EASE Billy comforts Sarah in the vestry and assures her that Harry is a beautiful baby and she mustn’t let thoughts of hIs father spoil that. Sarah returns to the font and after apologising to the congregation for her wobble, the christening goes ahead. The guests gather at the bistro for Harry and Gail’s joint christening and birthday party. When Nick loses his temper over something small, David covers for him. Sally presents Gail with a birthday cake emblazoned with the words ‘Gail no nuts’ and Audrey makes a touching speech. Nick confides in David that the symptoms from his brain injury have returned and he’s worried it could destroy his relationship with Carla.
JENNY SPEAKS UP FOR IZZY Jenny puts in a good word for Izzy and begs Johnny to be lenient with her as she suffers from such a painful condition. Izzy assures Johnny she never takes drugs before or at work and has no criminal convictions. Johnny promises her that her job is safe. Izzy shares her good news with Gary.
MICHELLE AND WILL HAVE A VISIT TO MAKE Will calls at the Rovers and after explaining that Saskia has invited another 50 guests to the wedding, persuades Michelle to accompany him to the reception venue to discuss it with the manager.
ELSEWHERE Freddie amuses Audrey with his dry sense of humour whilst Ken finds him increasingly annoying. Kate confides in Sophie how much she misses Caz. Sophie’s disappointed to realise Kate’s clearly still in love with her. Luke and Maria break the news to Tyrone and Fiz that they’ll be moving in together.
