Greetings and welcome to the Coronation Street Weekly Update. Find out more about the Coronation Street Weekly Updates and why they've been written for th'internet since 1995 at http://www.corrieweeklyupdates.btinternet.co.uk 

And so without any further ado, here we go with this week's Coronation Street update.

Over at Underworld, Rob takes on Eva as a new machinist but she’s all fingers and thumbs. Fortunately for Eva, they’re not the body parts Rob’s interested in and she carries on stitching and gets on everyone’s nerves. Rob moves into sister Carla’s flat now she’s done a runner with Peter, which begs the question why Tracy can’t move into Peter’s.  We find out soon enough when Leanne makes it clear to bossy-boots Barlow that she’s in charge of the bookies while Peter’s AWOL and Beth and young Craig are moving into the flat.   Tracy slums it in a bad dressing gown and a scowl with Emily and Norris for now.

Ryan Connor returns this week, all muscle-bound and angsty. Heaven only knows what they put in the Irn Bru up in that Scotland but young Ryan-me-laddo has changed beyond all recognition.  He’s only back five minutes and he sets Steve McDonald’s house on fire with the flick of a careless match as he’s trying (and failing) to chat up Sophie Webster.  He's a bad 'un and no mistake. He disses his mother – although let’s not forget she’s not his real mother and he’s not her real son – he’s nasty to Kirk when he gets a job in packing pants and then threatens to sue Underworld after faking an accident.  When Rob suspects that Ryan’s trying to rip off Underworld he asks Eva: “How do you fancy playing Mata Hari?”. “I’ll play Kerplunk if it’ll wipe the smile off his face!” she replies.  And so Eva calls Ryan’s bluff when she gets him to take her out on a date and he confesses to her cleavage that there’s nowt wrong with him, he just needs the cash from the factory.  Michelle’s already at her wits end with Ryan and doesn’t know which way to turn. Fortunately for her, Steve’s lonely and sad and is happy to be that shoulder to cry on she’s going to need very soon.   With Fat Brenda off having her gastric band realigned, Steve offers Ryan a gig on the switch.

At Roy’s Rolls, Hayley gets a call from Aunty Maude to say Uncle Bert is ill and so off she goes on soap plot device number  11 (sub-section F(ii)) as Mary gets her talons into Roy by inviting him to accompany her to a musical event.  “I’ve never been so moved by a wind section,” she giggles like a girl later in the caff when Roy invites her in for cocoa.  I’m not liking this scary-Mary, not one little bit and wish that she’d leave Roy very well alone.

Dev plans to wed Sunita in six weeks time, he wants a rush job in case Sunita changes her mind, which is exactly what she does after she gets caught in the Rovers half-dressed with Karl . She plans it that way so that Stella, Leanne and Eva all troop back from a night on the razz to find Karl and Sunita getting ready to bonk on the banquette.  There’s an almighty row in the Street when St Ella takes out her insecurities on Sunita before throwing Karl out.  But she’s chucked him out on the cobbles twice before and she’s taken him back. She’s got no backbone, has St Ella and is such a waste of space because you just know she’ll take him back again.  If Corrie really wanted us fans to like St Ella instead of hating every moment that she’s on screen, they’d at least give us something to like.

And finally this week, there’s tantrums at tea-time over at Tyrone’s house when Kirsty loses her temper once more .  Run, Tyrone, run, and don’t look back!

And that's just about that for this week. Remember, you can sign up to get these Corrie weekly updates by email at http://www.corrieweeklyupdates.btinternet.co.uk/subscribe.htm

I loved the reference to Fat Brenda's gastric band, spoken completely dead-pan!

Coronation St must be the only place where people come out in the dead of night when they hear a rumpus. Never heard of curtain twitching?

Can't see Leanne and Eva doing a sister act. They've got nothing in common apart from Stella. On the other hand, Leanne and Kylie would be great, seeing as they both miss their sisters ie. Becky and Toyah. I'm sure Kylie would bring out the old Battersby in Leanne! And their other halves are brothers; they'd make a great foursome.

The epies aren't up on YouTube yet so haven't seen them but can't wait to hear about Fat Brenda's realignment LOL! Missing her Cream Horns a lot..... :-(

So weary of Mr. Boring and his one expression bit on the side....time to pack in this story once and for all!
