Coronation Street Weekly Awards, June 14-28

Please Don't Wear the Gold Bikini award: Mary in her Princess Leia get up. And being all territorial about the Kabin. I think that woman has totally lost the plot.

Mike Baldwin in the making award: Gold Star: Nick. "Who's Carla?" indeed!

I need new underpants award: Gold Star: Stape is discovered! Why didn't he check the whole list? Why didn't he just tell his friend, yes, I just used his name for the conference? He's an idiot! That's why!

Retcon award: Platinum Star: Fiz. She wants Ches to sit his GCSEs to have a better life than she did. But when Fiz first came to the Street, we found out she had 7 or 8 GCSEs! So has all that disappeared?

Anything in skirts award: Gold Star: Ciaran will flirt with *anyone*! (or almost) Did he really ask Tina what her sign is?

He's Just Not That Into You award: Platinum star No surprise, here... Natasha, you had a life before Nick. Don't chuck it away! He's not worth it!
Jason, I don't think Tina's that into you anymore. Mary, Norris just isn't that into you.

She's *that* into you award: Gold star: Charlotte. Using a Facebook status as an excuse to see John and wind him up with a few well-chosen but cringeworthy chat up lines.

You Just Can't Help Yourself: Gold Star: Nick again, he keeps stirring up Peter and looking very smug when he gets a reaction.

Be Consistent in your Objections: The Factory Bees took Nick to task for calling them "girls" and then a few hours later, he calls "Hi girls" across the street and they just say "Hi" back, no recriminations.

My gosh, isn't Charlotte a hoot? She's just awful, isn't she? And, she is using her knowledge about Stape's plan and you just know she wants to get into his trousers. I get the feeling she does that a lot, get into men's trousers. She probably did the deed with the real Colin Fishwick and now wants to compare. Yet, Stape doesn't stand up to her, he doesn't tell Fiz she'd found out about things, he doesn't follow Fiz back home when Fiz does find out and gives him hell. I just can't find enough names to call this man!

Lines of the Week:
Fiz: "It's like a different language" (um.)
Mary: "I"ve never been happier to lose a fiver in my life" (Yes but you still thought the jury was wrong)
Roy to Fiz: "You don't think he's been bullied?" Fiz: "If he hasn't, I'll flaming batter him!"
Mary: "Mother wouldn't allow any films like that (Star Wars). Sex, violence or robots. Or talking animals... colcanos, monks, talking vehicles of any kind." That explains so much.
Peter to Leanne: "You're making a big show of yourself" (and you and your jealousy aren't?)
Charlotte: "I used to think you were boring!" (you were right) and "Wherever you go, I go" (I think he's got a ready made stalker, hot for his form!)
Rosie to Fiz: "Charlotte 'Church' we called her. She gets very busy on a Sunday!"
Tina: "When did people stop having problems and start having issues?"

Er, I dont think you can compare Mike Baldwin to Nick the Berk at all. Mike was a street wise savvy business man, Nick is just a twit. Loving Charlotte but how did she know where John and Fiz lived?
