Spot the Corrie prop - September 25th 2020

This week congratulations go to Dianne who was the only person to spot that last week's classy clock can be found in Toyah/Imran/Craig/Ryan/Alya's flat. Well done!

For this week's prop puzzle all you have to do is tell us whereabouts on Coronation Street you would find this stylish storage solution.

FRIDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER - One-hour episode

DEBBIE GETS THE WRONG END OF THE STICK After telling Debbie and Kevin she is spending the day with Seb, Abi is reminded of a physio appointment she has and books a cab but is surprised to see Peter is her driver. When Mary mentions that she saw Peter and Abi driving off together Debbie is immediately suspicious. When Kevin arrives home, excited about booking a holiday cottage, Debbie can’t bear to keep him in the dark any longer and, with a heavy heart, reveals that Abi’s having an affair. Kevin reels and heads for the Rovers. What will he do next? Abi and Peter try to convince Carla and Kevin that there is nothing going on but Abi is forced to admit she did make a silly pass at Peter. Carla accuses Peter of tiring of a normal relationship once she was back on an even keel so he went looking for the next damsel in distress.
THE SEARCH FOR TODD IS PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE Billy and Paul worry if they have opened up a can of worms by going public in the Gazette and not telling Sean and Eileen about it.
ADAM IS SUSPICIOUS OF DANIEL Geoff returns to Adam’s office for another look for his missing envelope of money. Adam’s perturbed to hear that Daniel’s already searched for it. Daniel visits Nicky in the hospital to find her on the mend and plans to return to work. She’s stunned when Daniel places Geoff’s envelope of cash in front of her. Will she accept? Geoff accosts Alya in the street, accusing her of stealing his cash while a guilt-ridden Daniel and a suspicious Adam look on. Adam tackles Daniel about Geoff’s missing money. Daniel denies all knowledge. Adam takes his word for it but warns against crossing Geoff.
ELSEWHERE Michael is elated when Tianna calls him daddy but when he sees how uneasy Grace is he guesses she is worried about Tianna getting too attached to him.

Coronation Street Episode Review; Weds 23rd September 7.30 & 8.30 pm


Daniel's latest dalliance with Nicky (paid or unpaid) has certainly dismissed any platonic proposals that these two may have had for each other. Seemingly falling for the boy’s bookish Barlow charms, Daniel’s hopes of taking Nicky’s to Lytham St Anne’s have been scuppered by his hypocritical harpooning of her chosen career choice. Finally letting her guard down, is Nicky putting pride before a fall? I must admit, I like how they are they are treating the occupation of a sex worker, but is it all going a bit ‘band of gold?’ A sudden spark of a relationship and Daniel is suddenly running around on his mobile and hammering Adam for a wage sub so he can give the cash to Nicky. Too little too late though as Nicky returns from a job all bloodied and seemingly attacked by a punter. 



Michael and Toyah struggle to keep a client happy at the factory... I say factory, but is it now a sales hub? Some sort of SME, perhaps? I imagine they are all online because when was the last time we saw a sewing machine? I’d love to see a ‘Mike Baldwin’ type whip these millennials into shape! Michael cheers up with a visit from Grace, and it seems this couple are co-parenting just nicely. How long will that last, do we think? Also, why have the rest of the Bailey clan just disappeared? We know Aggie will be busy with COVID, but James and Ed? No sign of them!



Abi is not happy. The fall-out from her pass at Peter seems to be as troublesome as abstaining from the methadone!. The machismo of Kev facing off with Peter … can you imagine? It would be fisticuffs galore, I reckon! The drama lends itself to everybody finding out, so I am hopeful. How hopeful are we (or would we be) of Abi and Peter having an affair, though? I mean, addiction is all-consuming and they do have that connection! Denying all knowledge of Abi making a pass at him, Peter gets a telling off from Kev’s sister, Debbie, and surprise surprise, he heads off to tell Abi all about it. This could all blow up, you know, just like that boat did! 



Past misdemeanours are also prevalent when it comes to Billy’s tracking down of ex-lover Todd Grimshaw. The Private investigator tells the Vicar that Todd’s been messing with the local gangs, and has subsequently disappeared. Paul admits that he’s also made a call to the gazette in hope that a story raises awareness. Is it time that somebody told Eileen? 



Mary's floristry stories continue (it’s a bit of a thread this past week, I think) and having made things better with George, she's now haranguing Brian Packham over the cornflowers! Is this more flora flirting from Mary? Could Brian fall for Mary’s sweet eccentricities and leave Cathy, or am I getting mistaken, again? It’s the war of the (dog) roses, more likely! Barring Brian from the florist, Mary is banned from The Kabin too, and then so is Tyrone. Can Mary and Brian be Corrie’s new comedic duo? 



At the hospital, Daniel unwittingly meets Nicky’s Mum and is immediately chastised for his trouble. It seems her mother is also wary of her daughter's job and gives us a bit more of a character insight.  



Daniel’s grief over Sinead is still manifesting itself, isn’t it? Dalliance’s and dangerous liaisons aside, is Nicky a welcome (but troublesome) distraction for the grieving widower, or is she about to make things a whole lot worse for him? The messiah complex can't be helping, and Adam agrees. Helpless without the cash, Geoff leaves a wad at the solicitors office and it seems our question is answered! 


That's violent Geoff by the way, a man who also procures the services of prostitutes... 


I am @rybazoxo your cobbles connoisseur

Nicky's mum arrives in Corrie tonight - and she's an ex-Brookside star


Nicky's mum arrives in Coronation Street tonight and she's played by an ex-Brookside star.

With thanks to Digital Spy  we can reveal that Nicky's mum Ellen pops up briefly after Nicky is admitted to hospital following a nasty incident.

Ellen will be played by Eithne Brown who previously appeared on Emmerdale as Ryan Stocks's adopted mother Irene.

Brookside fans will also know Eithne for playing the role of Chrissy Rogers in the late '80s and early '90s.
