Coronation Street Weekly Update, September 26 2011

Greetings and welcome to the Coronation Street Weekly Update.  Huge thanks go to Karen Jankel and Richard Whitbread for looking after the updates for the last two weeks while I was on my jollies. And so without any further ado, here we go with this week's Coronation Street update.

It’s been harrowing this week on Coronation Street. The aftermath of Frank raping Carla has played out emotionally with exceptional performances from the actors who play Frank, Carla, Leanne and Peter, especially.  Meanwhile, the residents of the Street get dolled up in their best bib and tucker for Carla and Frank’s wedding. The cake’s arrived, the pink orchids are on the tables at the Bistro and Sally’s got her fascinator on until news spreads that the wedding’s off . And it doesn’t take long for the reason why to filter up the street. Peter spots Frank sneak into the Bistro and thumps him so hard he falls in his own wedding cake. This makes it more difficult for Peter to prove he was just caring for a friend when he tries to knock seven bells out of Frank, but that’s Peter for you, thump first and ask later.  Anyway, Frank’s now in jail after bail was refused while he waits for his case to be referred up to Crown Court.

As Carla struggles to cope “I feel like a victim, and I don’t do victim” she tells Doctor Carter who prescribes her sleeping pills, Peter supports his friend. At least he keeps telling himself, and anyone who’ll listen, that Carla’s his friend, but there’s more to it all and Leanne visits Frank in jail to find out what’s really going on.  She finds out more than she bargains for however when Frank confesses it was Carla driving the car that crashed into Stella.  Armed with this news, Leanne storms to Carla’s flat where Peter is administering some TLC to his friend.  She’s not daft, Leanne, but she really should leave Peter, she knows full well what’s going on, even if Peter denies anything’s happened. And it hasn’t, not in the sub-duvet sense but in the heart to heart sense, it really has.

Elsewhere, Anna springs a leak under the kitchen sink. Cue plumbing innuendo as Owen goes in to try to fix her stop cock and there’s passion with the plumber when Owen and Anna sleep together. Clearly the cock is no longer fixed at stop.   She does her best to ignore him afterwards but Gary knows they really like each other and fixes his mum up with a date with Owen in the Bistro.

On the golf course with Lloyd, Dev discovers son Aadi is a naturally gifted golfer and goes all out to encourage the kid buying him a brand new set of golf clubs when Sunita’s already warned Dev that their finances are low.

Tyrone’s new girlfriend Kirsty reveals she’s a cop and there’s an odd sort of storyline involving Kirsty, Tina and Rita’s car.  Kirsty thinks Tina has damaged her car and Tina thinks Kirsty has damaged Rita’s car when neither has done nowt to nothing. But it sets the two girls up against each other as Tryone tries to calm things between them.

And over at the Websters, Kevin asks Ken for advice on changing baby Jack’s surname from Dobbs to Webster. Tyrone’s not best pleased, as you can imagine.  And Rosie’s over the moon that she’s been given a modeling job on ITV’s Lorraine. Cue cross ITV-programme promotion and Rosie’s own modeling website at

And that's just about that for this week. 

This week's writers were Simon Crowther, Carmel Morgan, Jan McVerry and Martin Allen.  Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team at:
