Flaming Nora’s Corrie Weekly Update, May 23 2011

Greetings and welcome to the Coronation Street Weekly Update. This week the update’s getting ready to go camping. Clean socks? Check. Warm PJs? Check. Vodka? Check. And so without any further ado, here we go with this week's Coronation Street update.

There’s a funny smell coming from underneath Underworld. The drains are blocked and Carla’s not pleased. She blames Owen for shoddy refurbishment work and he rightly takes neither the blame nor the responsibility, he just tells Carla if she wants diagnostics done on her drains, it’ll cost her.  Oh, it’s gonna cost her alright when she finds out just what’s causing that stench. It’s not something fishy, it’s something Fishwick.
Over at the garage, Kevin gets an erection on his new tool that goes up and down. Up and down, up and down, up and down goes the new twenty thousand pounds electronic ramp that he refuses to let Tyrone use.  In a foul mood, Tyrone gives it a good thumping with his spanner and when Kev’s next underneath there, tinkering with the camshaft or whatever the business end of a car’s called, the thing collapses on top of Kevin, crushing his arm and sending him to th’ospickle. Tyrone comes clean and tells Kev it was he who damaged the machine. Kev sheds a few tears feeling sorry for himself but it was me who was choked when Tyrone goes round to see Kevin to tell him he wants to forgive and forget all about him sleeping with Molly, having her baby if Kevin’ll forgive him for trying to kill him. Seems a square deal to me.

Meanwhile John’s got the Hoyles and Chesney tied up in the basement of the Hoyles house. It’s too silly for words and won’t be over for quite some time yet. Best buckle up, it’s going to be a clumpy ride.

Sally returns from a loved-up weekend in Paris with Jeff although Eileen wonders how well a dirty weekend in France could have gone when Sally tells her she spent most of her time in the Louvre. Well, at least Jeff’s loved-up, Sally’s not too sure but she’s pleased to be back and even helps Kevin look after baby Jack.

Little FayE, jealous at the attention that Anna’s giving Katy, tells Owen that Katy’s pregnant. He goes storming in with all guns blazing on Katy, who’s wondering why Chesney’s done a runner (he’s locked up in the Hoyles cellar, but no one knows where he is).  And Owen, now that he knows Anna knows about Katy and the baby, gives Anna the glad-eye over the barmcakes in Roy’s Rolls.  Ooh, where’s Eddie Windass when you need him? Seriously, where is Eddie Windass?
And that's just about that for this week. 
This week's writers were Mark Burt, Mark Wadlow, Jan McVerry,  Jonathan Harvey and Debbie Oates. Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team at:

I really enjoyed tonights episodes. I thought the whole Tracy/Steve/Amy milk saga was well done. The continuing John/Colin storyline is still interesting but heading for a finale and the Kevin/Tyrone scenes were well played. Could there also be a spark between Owen and Anna? I hope not but you never know.....

Kevin Webster's lips have disappeared.

I see they are sowing the seeds for a romance between Anna and Owen who I thought Carla was extremely rude to by the way. Where does she get off the way she talks to people? I almost felt sorry for Kevin blubbing away, just shows how it should be kept in your trousers!

I should think there ought to be a funny smell coming from that cellar by now too - judging by the number of days they've been tied "bathroom break".

And I wonder if Colin's body will still be in Fizz's old carpet - I'm betting that will be forgotten about.

Dilly Daydream said...

Yes, it was fairly obvious that they are heading down the road of romance for Anna & Owen. Who knows, maybe she'll be a good influence on him and he'll calm down a bit.

And with a bit of luck he'll persuade her to get rid of that awful child Faye - AKA Matt Lucas in a wig.

No mention of Eddie at all and it seems to me that Eddie is being completely glossed over and air brushed from 25 years with Anna. Boo!
