Coronation Street Weekly Update, June 15 2009

Greetings and welcome to another weekly wotsit of wonder plopping through your inbox and onto your e-mat. This week the update stirs things up with its very own spurtle. Read on and you’ll find out more.

Before I start – have you entered the competition to win a case of the new Coronation Street bottled beer? No? Then have a look here

The Underworld girls have had a shocking week. First off, Kelly gets electric-shocked by a loose wire in her sewing machine and it’s clear that the old machines and the factory need an overhaul. But there’s no cash, says Messrs Strong and Gordon and that’s when Mr Strong comes up with a plan. He asks the girls to buy a share of the factory to raise cash to get the place tarted up. The girls’ reaction to this piece of news? They were shocked.

Over the road, Maria has a false alarm when she starts having baby pains and is rushed to th’ospital with Kirkeh by her side. Now, Kirkeh’s not the best person in a panic and Maria shoos him away when it turns out she’ll be ok. But as soon as Tony Gordon finds out what’s happened to Maria, he makes it his mission to mind her and moves in. Maria doesn’t take much convincing about having a hunky-Scot living on her sofa, especially when he’s good with Ozzy, makes proper porridge with a spurtle and does his ironing sans-shirt. Ooh, all these qualities, eh? If only he wasn’t a murderer, he’d be quite a good catch.

Over at the Kabin, Norris has got a strop on (I said strop on, dear) when Ramsay becomes the Kabin’s new paperboy.

He’s further annoyed to find Ramsay and Emily doing the crossword, together, and enjoying it too.

It was nice to see Emily happy, I’d rather forgotten she could be.

David Platt’s scam to get Gary Windass caught in the act of thieving from Audrey’s house comes unstuck after Audrey and Gail catch David at the house just as he was about to put the family photos back on the shelves. He comes clean, does David, when he realises he has no choice and Gail gives him yet another talking to, about how disappointed she is, how she’ll never forgive him, how she’s just letting him live in the house but he’s no longer part of the family. As the King of Siam once said: “Etcetera. Etcetera. Etcetera”. Strangely, Ted appears to have forgiven David although the way Audrey’s set her face, it looks like it could take her some time to feel the same.

Weatherfield Barbie gets a letter from John Stape asking her to visit him in prison. She throws a sickie to get the day off work and heads to the jail in a teeny-tiny skirt and an itsy-bitsy top. John looks up from his misery to see a cleavage wobble towards him with Rosie Webster behind it. He tells her he’s giving her the proceeds from the sale of his grandmother’s house, all £150,000 of it and advises Rosie to spend it wisely, on education or training when all Rosie wants to buy is shoes, boys and bags. Rosie skips out of the prison after visiting John, putting the eyes of the Weatherfield populace in direct danger of being poked out by her boobs. Honestly, I didn’t know where to look although I suspect if you’re male and of the right age, you did.

Meanwhile Kev Webster thinks there’s summat going on between Jason and Molly as the two of them go training together. But it’s only the running that raising Jason’s heartbeat when he’s with Molly and he tells Kev in no uncertain terms that he wouldn’t go after a mate’s missus. Ah, but Kevin would - and he does. Tune in next week for more. Same bat blog, same bat channel and wear your underpants outside your bat trousers with pride.

And that’s just about that for this week.

Coronation Street writers this week were Jayne Hollinson, Martin Allen, Lucy Gannon, Mark Burt and John Kerr.

God i thought there was some sort of tidal wave of boobs when Rosie sauntered into the prison. And later on when she walked over to Sal and Luke. Goodness me, i too didn't know where to look!

I actually laughed out loud at the good qualities of the hunky scot, if only he wasn't a murderer. Can't have everything can you! Haha

I love Rosie's boobs (in a non-sexual totally-comedy sort of a way). I might have to devote a whole blog post to them. One each, even.
