Coronation Street Weekly Update, November 16 2009

This week the update comes with pips in its teeth as it’s pomegranate season. Its my favourite fruit in my least favourite time of the year, it's that waiting for Santa bit between Halloween and Christmas. Anyway, without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.

John Stape’s released from jail, he’s back on the Street and in Fiz’s arms. She’s all loved up but over the road, Sally Webster’s not pleased to have John back. She doesn’t half go on about him and when Kevin tells her to shut it, she goes over the road and paints out Fiz’s windows black. I liked this touch, it was the sort of thing that Elsie Tanner would have had done to her. Anyway, Fiz and John are loved up.

Gail and Joe make plans for their wedding and Gail asks Ted to give her away, to which he agrees. He’s great, Ted, and if he hadn’t been giving his daughter away on her wedding day, he could have been Best Man, and not only at the wedding, but in Corrie itself. He’s great. Anyway, Gail and Joe are loved up.

Corrie fans up and down the country suffered another bout of Kevin and Molly this week. Apparently, if you sneeze MolVin into your tissue and bin it, it kills it, but watch out because it’s viral and it could spread. So always wash your hands after you’ve watched Kevin and Molly on screen. Anyway, Kev and Molly are loved up.

Over at Eileen’s, Sean tells her he thinks Julie’s having a fling with a married man. Eileen, used to this sort of thing, puts two and two together and comes up with an almost perfect four. She knows Jesse and Julie are hanging around together and assumes they’re having it off but it’s purely professional, lies Jesse while lusting after Eileen’s prettier, chirpier, younger sister. Eileen makes Jesse dump Julie from his act then finds out it’s his 40th birthday this coming weekend and he’s lied to her about that an’ all. Jesse and Eileen are not loved up.

Big story of the week has been killer Tony and the Croppers. They think he’s been arrested and is safely behind bars for the killing of Liam, murder of bats and for brandishing a spurtle with a dodgy eye. But no, Tony’s released and is hiding in the caf√© while Hayley’s upstairs on her own and Roy’s down by the canal, alone with just a torch and a notebook for comfort, watching some bats. Will Tony sneak upstairs and spear Hayley with the bread knife? Will Tony creep to the canal and do in Mr Cropper? Ooh, it was tense. Which way would he go? Down to the canal of course, this is Corrie of course. There’s a stand off, Roy’s notebook and torch go flying and as Roy hovers at the water’s edge after a scuffle he begs with Tony: “But I can’t swim!” “Good,” Mr Gordon replies before letting Roy fall backwards into the murky depths. We leave Roy flailing in murky Manchester mud as the credits roll. Will he survive? Will Tony get caught? I think we all know the answers my friends and it won’t be long before Roy’s back behind his caf√© counter cooking bacon barms and listening to Nimrod on rotation again.

And that’s just about that for this week.

Coronation Street writers this week were Jayne Hollinson, Chris Fewtrell, Simon Crowther and Joe Turner.

On what planet is Julie considered better looking than Eileen?! You take that back!

Glenda Young said...

Hehe.. ;-) It's Eileen's permanent scowl that makes her so awful.

Layman Battler said...

Have to agree with Glenda; Julie oozes sex appeal. And how pretty did Cavanagh look in those graduation piccies!

Walzing Matilda said...

Julie IS much better looking than Eileen. Eileen towers over everyone and is so flippant and miserable all the time.
