Amy's baby - just what did happen 10 weeks ago?


I've read the spoiler in The Sun and so I thought I knew who Amy's baby daddy was. But now I'm not so sure. 

If that character is indeed the father of Amy's child then the last time he was on screen was back in September, according to Corriepedia.  And it's been pointed out to me on Twitter this morning by Corrie fan John Hughes that the character might have been in the young offender's institution at the time.

That doesn't mean of course that Amy couldn't have met him off-screen when he came out of the institution as she'd have been aware of him and who he was.

If Amy is 10 weeks pregnant, not 6 weeks as was confirmed last night, let's have a look at what was going on back then.

10 weeks ago was Wednesday, November 14th 2018. 

Around that time, young Amy was going through hell with her mum and dad. It was the time when she drew up a contract for them to sign and if they didn't sign, she threatened to divorce them.

Also at that time, Seb (see where I'm going with this?) was arguing with Abi over the court case about putting the twins up for adoption. It was also the time when Seb broke into the florists too, and later, at The Rovers, Seb wallowed in self-pity, before being seen (and I quote from blogger Ryan's review of that night) "angry and anguished; raging in fact". 

Might Seb have taken solace with Amy, the two of them chatting on Maxine's bench over a bag of chips and then one thing led to another?

Coronation Street Episode Review; Weds 23rd Jan 7.30pm



Welcome to Wednesday's edition of the Coronation Street Blog, and the first of tonight's two episodes, reviewed in a handy blog post.

Early morning around at the McDonald' flat, Steve and Tracy are discussing the repercussions of Amy's shock pregnancy. Keeping calm, against Steve's storm, Tracy promises to find out answers.
Amy is unforgiving of Steve's outburst and drip-feeds details of the Christmas conception, to her mum.

Still reeling from the discovery, Amy is adamant that she wants an abortion and asks Tracy to accompany her to the clinic.

Confiding in Kev, Steve tries in vain to calm down but still wants to know who the father is. However, when spying Amy hugging "cousin" Simon, has Steve made an unsettling discovery?


Laid on the living room floor, Gary and Sarah struggle to sleep on the lilos and David the dog decides to eat Sarah's bra. Luckily, she works in an underwear factory, but rather than stealing a sample, Sarah fails to get a pay rise from Carla and her brother.


Gary meanwhile, receives bad news about his quote for Audrey's dry rot from Nick. The couple's money worries look set tto continue, and Gary still seems preoccupied with Nicola and baby Zach.

Also at Roy's Rolls, Tyrone's titbit of musical knowledge (random) impresses Sally, but his titbits of chips to Cerebus fail to impress Evelyn.  With bingo on her mind, Evelyn promises to collect Ruby from school after a session at the community centre.

With Abi getting ready for her job interview, Sally's snotty nosed social-climbing personality has quickly recovered from prison, as she offers her new BFF some interview tips.  In the interview, Abi lies to cover up her prison sentence. Will it work?


Over lunch, Roy and Carla reminisce over Hayley, on the anniversary of her death. Roy's thankful for his life with Hayley, but then receives sudden news about his mum's Sylvia's heart attack.

At the clinic, Amy and Tracy head to the appointment to discuss the termination. Amy must have a scan to figure out her exact due date. It's not a Christmas conception, after all, she's 10 weeks due. Is Simon the father?

I am @rybazoxo over on twitter, and your self-styled 'Cobbles Connoisseur' .

Follow me to find out what happens in the 8.30pm slot. In case you missed it, but if you didn't, it's a good read anyway.

TA-RA!

Elle Mulvaney interview: "Amy's baby story is scary"


Elle Mulvaney, who plays Amy Barlow, is doing a sterling job on the show right now. And I have to admit the storyline is really pulling me in. Seeing the dynamics between Amy and Tracy, I'm drawn to think about Deirdre and Blanche and what they would have made of it all too.  Really enjoying this one, thanks Coronation Street!

Elle has been interviewed by TV Times Magazine about the baby storyline and she says this:

"I was mostly excited, but it is a bit scary. Teenage pregnancy isn't uncommon, so I knew there was a responsibility to do it justice. At the same time, I've taken it as a good opportunity to show what I'm capable of as an actress. It's great to have that bit of recognition and to know that people believe in me.

"There was a scene where Amy's having a conversation with Steve and Tracy in the living room, and I had to go into the bathroom and cry. It's hard to change emotions so quickly. I wanted it to be realistic, but it's not always about sobbing. Sometimes it's more stress crying. I had to find that in-between point."

If you want to know who got Amy pregnant, the spoiler with the rumoured daddy is here.

And if you want to know what's next in this storyline, the official ITV preview is here.

Corrie cousins? No! Amy and Simon's family ties


There seems to be a bit of confusion in the papers today (as always when they try to write about Coronation Street).

They're having the vapours about the suggestion that Simon was accused of being Amy's baby daddy last night on the show. They say it's wrong and that it's incest.

It's not - that is, of course, if Simon turns out to be the one who got Amy pregnant.

As pointed out in the Rovers last night in the lovely scene between Peter and Dev, Simon and Amy aren't blood-related. They're not cousins in that sense. Let's take a look at the bleedin' obvious clues.

Simon is Peter Barlow's son. Peter is Ken Barlow's son. Amy is Tracy McDonald's daughter. Tracy is Deirdre Barlow's daughter and Tracy was adopted by Ken. This means that Peter and Tracy aren't blood related. Therefore, Simon and Amy aren't blood related either.

If you want to know who got Amy pregnant, the spoiler with the rumoured daddy is here.
