Coronation Street Weekly Update, October 25 2010

Greetings and welcome to another weekly update, chock full of gossip and goings on direct from the cobbles. Oh ok, direct from my laptop which isn’t on the cobbles, it’s on my knees. And I’m sitting on the floor in front of the telly listening to the wireless on Radio 6. And so, without any further ado, here we go with this week's Coronation Street update.

To find out why the Corrie updates have been written for the internet since 1995, have a look here:

Graeme starts the week swearing revenge at David for running him down and trying to kill him. Trouble is, David says he can’t remember anything about it and when he collapses as he’s about to go to court, the docs say David might be epileptic. I’ve long thought David was evil-eptic but maybe there’s no cure for that one just yet. So then Graeme, despite Tina’s protestations that David’s guilty of attempted murder, thinks that his mate Dave might be telling the truth after all.

Over at the Websters, dozy Rosie flashes her puppies at Jason when she ropes him in to repair the damage she’s caused when she set her sausage on fire. Jason’s hoping Rosie will set his sausage on fire and when she mentions that she needs a lift to a lingerie shoot, he jumps at the chance to be her escort. At the modelling agency, they’re a man down as the male model hasn’t turned up and in steps Jason, aka Mr Gay Weatherfield, who strips off, poses and pouts with Rosie for a lingerie advert shoot.

At Roy’s Rolls, Kylie nicks a hundred quid from the till and does a runner to Ayia Napa on her jollies with a mate. She leaves little Max behind which means Becky gets to play mammy while Kylie raves it up in a foam party off her head. I’ve never been to Ayia Napa so I’m just presuming, that’s all. But while she’s away, the Social Services come calling, wanting to see Kylie and little Max in their new home. Becky does the only thing she knows how, she lies through her teeth and pretends to be Kylie, fibbing to the social worker that she’s her own sister. Mind you, this doesn’t stop the social worked demanding to see Aunty Becky in due course.

In the Rovers, Llloyd gives Maria a word of advice and warns her to stay away from Chris as he likes to beat women for fun. Maria has the good sense to nip her budding romance with Chris but he’s a pair of trizers and Maria’s Maria so it’s odds on these two will end up getting together no doubt. And then she’ll be sorry.

Elsewhere this week, Molly and Tyrone bring baby Jack’s christening forward so that big Jack can attend, you know, before he does. Hatches, matches and dispatches. It’s what life’s all about.

And there’s a bouquet of flowers delivered and left on the steps at Underworld. Eddie spies them and nicks them and gives them to Anna telling her they’re from the bottom of his heart when they’re really from the bottom of the factory steps. Anna’s over the moon with the lovely flowers until she opens the card that’s tucked inside and reads Rest in Peace. Anna bashes Eddie with the flowers and runs after him down the Street berating him for his cheapskate ways while John Stape pales when he finds out about the flowers. The factory girls all think they could be a nasty prank relating to Tony Gordon but John fears that those carnations are for Colin, buried under the cement.

And that's just about that for this week.

Coronation Street writers this week were David Lane, Simon Crowther, Chris Fewtrell and Damon Rochefort.
