Preview of tonight's double Coronation Street - Fri 12 August
MARIA’S GOOD INTENTIONS BACKFIRE ON KATE When Caz confides in Luke that it would have been Kate’s mum’s birthday today, Luke suggests she sends Kate some flowers. Caz agrees it’s a great idea but she’s skint. Luke agrees to order the flowers and Caz is grateful as she instructs him to order roses but no carnations as she loathed them. Luke calls in the flower shop but mistakenly orders carnations for Kate with the message “I know what these meant to your mum. Caz”. Deeply upset, Kate shows Sophie the carnations and explains how her mum always thought they were bad luck and Caz knows that. Kate confronts Caz accusing her of intentionally hurting her. Caz is horrified to realise Luke sent carnations by mistake. Maria rails at Luke calling him useless. Luke storms out.
JEALOUSY GNAWS AWAY AT NICK Leanne starts work back at the bistro and Robert’s clearly pleased to see her. When Nick clocks Robert and Leanne enjoying a laugh, his jealousy is evident. Nick quizzes Steph, convinced Leanne is involved with Robert. Steph refuses to be drawn leaving Nick more suspicious than ever.
IZZY GETS HER HOPES UP Izzy arrives home from prison and is touched to discover Gary’s organised a welcome party. When Faye announces that Izzy and Gary are back together, everyone’s thrilled for them whilst Gary masks his guilt.
ELSEWHERE Gemma calls in the corner shop and tells Dev that she’s signed up for the Good Neighbour Scheme and has decided to focus her good works on Rita. Gemma calls in the Kabin and offers to do Rita’s shopping for her. A bemused Rita insists that won’t be necessary. Aidan calls at Eva’s flat and apologising for the misunderstanding, assures her that he hasn’t ruled out living together but he’s just not quite ready yet. Will Eva accept this?
Friday 12th August
MARIA FINDS SOLACE IN AN UNEXPECTED PLACE Having followed Luke outside, Maria continues to tear a strip off him. Luke storms off into the night. Telling Caz she’s creeping her out, Kate orders her to stay away in future. Caz shows Maria some concert tickets she bought for Kate and suggests that rather than waste them, they could go together but after her spat with Luke, Maria insists she’d prefer an evening in by herself. Aidan calls at Maria’s flat and they share a moan about Luke and Eva. Aidan explains how he visited his mum’s grave today but was constantly bombarded by texts from Eva. Maria’s sympathetic. When Eva hears that Aidan was visiting his Mum’s grave, she’s mortified, realising that’s why he was ignoring her texts. Getting stuck into the wine, Maria and Aidan reminisce about childhood memories and soon they’re kissing passionately. Luke and Eva clearly forgotten. As Aidan and Maria pull their clothes back on, Caz returns to the flat. Will they be caught in the act?
LEANNE’S CAUGHT BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE In the bistro, Leanne helps Robert set up for the speed dating night. They clearly enjoy each other’s company and Nick and Steph clock their closeness. Pleased with the successful night they’ve had, Robert suggests a celebratory drink
but making a waspish remark about business and pleasure, Nick leaves them to it. As Nick and Leanne head home, Nick accuses Leanne of falling for Robert. Leanne assures him that’s not the case. Nick begs Leanne to reconsider and give their relationship another go, will Leanne relent?
REALITY DAWNS FOR IZZY With her party in full swing, Izzy tells Beth how miserable she was in prison, how much she missed Jake and how good it is to be home. Having seen the last of their guests out, Izzy leads Gary to the bedroom telling him she needs to feel his arms around her. Gary reluctantly follows.
ELSEWHERE After helping Rita unload her shopping, Gemma steers her into the Rovers and
orders her a drink. Rita wonders what Gemma’s after. Gemma explains she’s sick of being a no mark and that’s why she’s joined the Good Neighbour Scheme. Impressed, Rita buys her a drink. Audrey and Freddie lure Gail and Michael to the Rovers hoping to reignite their relationship but their plan backfires when Phelan upsets Michael and Gail assumes it means he still holds a torch for Eileen.
