Coronation Street Episode Review; Weds 08th July 7.30 pm


I must admit to being gripped during Monday night's episode of Corrie. With the drama ranked up to 100%, we saw Sally's discovery of Geoff's magic box trick lead to a prison visit to see Yasmeen and Tim overhearing That argument, what a cliffhanger! 
Meanwhile, Leanne continuing to project her grief on to (an equally stricken) Toyah was heartbreaking yet exquisitely acted. Confronting Leanne, Nick explains how hard things must be for childless Toyah. Even as an emotional punchbag, Toyah still manages to give Nick a leaflet about a counselling service that could help her sister. Will Leanne see sense and seek help?


It's also testing family times for Geoff and Tim. With Sally’s loyalties slowly dividing, and let's be honest he’s not the brightest of men, so will Tim see through his father's nefarious ways or get the grumps on with his wife? Divulging Yasmeen’s truth’s, Tim is taken aback at Sally and Geoff’s standoff and asks his father to leave. How can coercive genius Geoff get back in control? Tim meanwhile, seeks faith from daughter Faye, and it's obvious that he still sees no wrong in his Dad - maybe with a subtle hint of ambiguity? 


Roy and Evelyn's friendship is one of those rare platonic things that we rarely see on the street between the opposite sexes, right? With the Rochdale canal trip cancelled, Roy realises that he may have been playing the third wheel and encroaching on Evelyn’s date (although she doth protest too much, I think) Erring on the side of caution, Roy’s wise words certainly hit home, so is there more to Evelyn and Arthur’s shared past that us viewers are yet to discover? I mean, with Evelyn now a strong cobbles character, do we expect her backstory to be delved into a little deeper? I’m probably overthinking but that's my Corrie brain for ya. Taking the plunge, Evelyn arranges another date with Arthur, so I guess time will tell...


It wasn’t that long ago either that Ed and Micheal were battling that bistro boss over racist slurs, so why he’d give them any more business, I've no idea. Taking Grace to dinner, Micheal admits he wants to be a proper couple (like they used to be in the past) and a strong parental unit to Tianna, so what's changed for these two? It seems Aggie doesn't like Grace, that's what. I wonder what happened to Micheal’s crazy ‘get rich quick’ schemes, tiny unicorn parties, and comedy banter? I miss that about his character if I'm honest. 


Staying true to his character traits, however, Geoff decides that he needs a prison visit to see Yasmeen too, only to have his plan squashed. What now? 

With Nick and Imran's words heading home. Leanne takes time to apologise to Simon and admits to struggling with Oliver’s condition, which although harsh, I think she’s every right to be if I'm honest. I guess she will take the counselling offered to help her cause. Surely Steve will join it with her, too? 

Another load of top Corrie drama tonight - what did you think?

Preview of tonight's Coronation Street - Weds 8 July


NICK BRINGS LEANNE BACK FROM THE BRINK  Imran and Nick urge Leanne not to take out her grief on Toyah, who’s just as devastated about Oliver. Nick suggests they should maybe go to a support group for parents of terminally ill children. How will Leanne react?
GEOFF IS LOSING CONTROL Tim is shocked to find out that Sally has visited Yasmeen, can Sally convince him that Geoff is the villain of the piece? Meanwhile back at number 6 Geoff has applied for a prison visit - will Yasmeen agree to see him?
ROY TOUCHES A NERVE IN EVELYN Roy apologises for upsetting Evelyn. Realising that Evelyn feels too old for romance, Roy assures her that age is no barrier.  Persuaded, Evelyn phones Arthur and makes another date.
CAN MICHAEL WIN OVER GRACE? Ed tells Aggie that it’s understandable Michael wants to be a full time Dad and they should support him, not stand in his way. Over dinner, Michael suggests to Grace they should give their relationship another go.
