Coronation Street Weekly Update, November 30 2009

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in the weekly updates office. The mince pies are baking, the sherry’s uncorked, the cake’s half eaten and the elves are sobering up. Anyway, without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.

“I’m your Fairy Godmother,” Carla tells the girls now she’s back on the shop floor. But she could turn out to be more of a Wicked Stepmother once the girls find out she knew about Tony killing Liam. That’s just one of the many secrets Carla’s keeping her lacquer-lips shut about, for now, anyroad. She takes on Hayley as factory manager which makes amends of a sort with the factory girls but it doesn’t half put Sally’s noise out of joint. “I’m available,” Rosie high pitches to Carla, trying to wheedle her way back into her boss’s good books and her old office. “Available? That could be your middle name, that,” Carla replies. Hayley starts addressing her new boss as Mrs Gordon but Carla cuts her short, telling her it’s Carla Connor from now on. “She might be a bitch, but she’s our bitch,” coos Sean.

At Bessie Street Primary, Claire’s upset that Joshua’s started swearing. “He said the D word!” she tells Ashley, shocked. Deirdre? Anyway, Claire’s blaming Becky saying that Josh is picking up bad language from Amy but this is just a ploy for the two of them to become unlikely friends and go on a bender in town. That’s Claire and Becky, not Amy and Josh.

In Roy’s Rolls, Rosie asks for a skinny latte when she knows full well there’s only two types of coffee that Roy will ever entertain – white or black. John offers to froth up the milk for her and he’s trying his best to do right by Rosie but she’s set out for revenge and more cash from the ex-con.

When John gives her short-shrift at the end of his shift and tries to throw her out of the caff, she yells into the dark of the night so that the Street regulars hear her Penelope Pitstop cries of: “Hayllup! Hayllup!” She’s determined to send John straight back to jail and for the very first time, this fan felt sorry for the Stapester.

Steve’s been out on the golf course once more and ignoring that newly wed wife of his back at the pub. He lies and tells her he’s been out buying her Christmas present. “It begins with a D,” he tells her. Deirdre again?

Poor Liz this week, I didn’t half feel sorry for her. Desperate to make amends with his ex, Lloyd asks Teresa to be nice to Liz. And she tries, she really does, for all of twenty seconds before the bitch and the bile starts pouring out of Mrs Morton again. She gets barred from the Rovers and gets revenge by organising a ‘Vicars and Liz’ fancy-dress party. The factory girls and Sean all turn up in their Liz-inspired tart-tat with blonde curly wigs, even Graeme Proctor - who’s got the legs for it if not the cleavage. When Liz realises what’s going on, there’s tears in her eyes and no love left for Lloyd.

With Gail’s wedding plans to Joe in full sail, Audrey has a word with her daughter but her advice falls to the floor around Gail’s stubborn head. This was a lovely scene, well written and tender.

And finally this week there were more hotel bedroom scenes with Molly and Kev. They almost got caught having a shag in the Webster marital bed and when they realise how close they came to being caught out, decide to tell Tyrone and Sally that their marriages are over and they’ve fallen in love with each other. Oh, pass the sick bucket please. We have to watch these Molly and Kev love scenes from behind a cushion in our house these days, that’s how bad they are.

And that’s just about that for this week.

Coronation Street writers this week were David Lane, Daran Little, Peter Whalley and Julie Jones. Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team.
