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

Michelle’s back from Ireland and Steve’s got a smile on his face. Mind you, it doesn’t last long after he finds out Michelle and Rob are spending the night in Sheffield together in an hotel. He storms right in there with Eva in tow, who’s suddenly forgotten that she and Rob split up some months ago and she’s come over all jealous in a very strange attempt to string a plot together.  Steve and Eva – let’s call them Steva as it saves me typing both names – turn up at th’otel to find Rob getting nekkid in his room with the hotel waitress. Eva knees him where it hurts while Steve looks on and has to apologise to Michelle when she asks him what the flippineck he’s doing at th’otel anyroad.  Long story cut short – Steve and Michelle are back together, Rob’s got sore bits and Eva’s determined to get a fella to take her mind off Rob. And that’s when she sets her cap at Nick, again.

Yes, Nick. Nicky boy Tilsley. Nicky, Nicky, Nicky. Nack. Nack. Nack. Eva, Eva, Eva, wants him Back, Back, Back. So she cajoles him into proposing to Leanne who flies off th’andle and gives Nick what for. Eva’s there to pick up the pieces of poor broken Nick while he wonders what he said wrong and whether Leanne still loves Peter Barlow.  That’s Leanne’s ex-husband Peter Barlow, not to be confused with any other Peter of the parish, because her decree absolute came through this week and it’s fair upset her somewhat so she’s clearly not over him yet. 

Meanwhile, up in the fluffy love-heart-shaped pink cloud that is the flat above the hair salon, things get heated and curly in Maria’s flat as Kirk tries to make sense of his sister’s new beau. He asks Marcus: “Did you feel yourself slipping away or did you find it happening when you weren’t looking?” Kirk’s as confused as the rest of us are as Maria and Marcus step out as an item, a couple, a pair. Will it all end in tears? Ooh, I do hope so.

Elsewhere, Tyrone takes little Ruby to the Super Tykes playgroup only for Kirsty to come down on him like a ton of bricks after she finds out he’s the only dad there amongst all those young mums. 

Gail ends up ironing Lewis’ underpants along with his shirts when she offers her house up to do his laundry. But why? What’s going on? Who knows? Gail is being as nice as she can be to Lewis to make up for the fact she was so horrible to him with Gloria in testing his love for Audrey. And Lewis? Well, Lewis is making the most of it all, lapping up the attention from gormless Gail and calling her a diamond. “You’re the Koh-i-Noor of Coronation Street” he tells her while plotting his revenge. That it will involve freshly ironed underpants… well, we can only hope.

Finally this week, Tina’s pregnant with Izzy and Gary’s baby. That’s nine months of hell we’re all going through, then.  Let’s be strong, Corrie fans, we can get through this, we can. Just breathe, two, three, four…  

And that's just about that for this week. Remember, you can sign up to get these Corrie weekly updates by email at

Mostly because I didn't care, I had forgotten that Eva and Rob were split up long before the hotel scene. Apparently Corrie writers think stalking and assault are hilarious. Idiots.

Ha, the quality of this review was fantastic. Brilliant comedy writing. You want to be writing for a paper or add a bit of clever humour to those ghastky women's mags or something. Very entertaining. More entertaining than the dreary/predictable episodes were anyway.

And I'm glad other people picked up on the Eva/Rob thing. That confused me a lot too. I was certain that they'd split up and didn't recall them getting back together. I'd just figured she was shagging him on the side or something.

Eva is just clingy and desperarare, why go across the Pennines to check up someone when they are not even your bloke. Now because Nick has rather naively given her some support she is trying to get her claws in him AGAIN. Pathetic over made up tart.

Rob and Eva got back together in the Rovers shortly after he made a half-assed pass at the ever present in your face was a short 5 second 'lets give it a go' sort of thing. It happened so fast it's no wonder nobody remembers it happening. Another quick switch up by the writers I suppose.

Yes, a fab review, Nora! Superb writing.- NN

LOL! - very funny write-up Flaming N but have to disagree about the Marcus and Maria pairing ending in tears - the only ending in tears I'd like to see is Sean blubbing away in the back of a taxi as he leaves the cobbles.
