Coronation Street Episode Review Monday 24th June

Bethany hands over Gary's St Christopher necklace that he thought he'd lost in Rick's shallow grave. He thanks her gratefully and Bethany assumes that it means so much to him to have it back because it was a pressie from Sarah. Gary raids Rick's office where he finds Rick's mobile (with which he sends a message to all his contacts saying that he's out of the country) and a message from Sharon on the voicemail telling Rick she's quit. A punter comes in and hands over cash owing by his son, half of which Gary turns over to Izzy for rent and things for Jake. Izzy urges him to get a job, any job, and Gary eyes the rest of the dosh, lightbulbs popping above his head. To cement his new role as Bad Guy, Gary talks trash with Adam in the kebab shop, telling him not to push him: "You don't know what I'm capable of."



Geoff has crabs. He decides that he's cooking a meal for Tim, Sally and Yasmeen. She protests that she has to work, but Alya gives her the evening off. Michelle and Cathy persuade Yas to go to a pre-prandial wine tasting at the Bistro, much to Geoff's displeasure. He's been digging up swede (in June!) from Tim's allotment for his swede 'n' crab surprise and can't understand why Yasmeen would need some Dutch courage to face this. When she finally gets back to the house, she's missed the starter and then Geoff pretends he's killed her fave chicken. He's all smiles when Sal is there but as soon as she's left, he starts with the passive-aggression, and moves onto insulting his girlfriend, calling her a drunk. She makes romantic advances on him, but he says he's sleeping in the spare room.

DUMP HIM, YASMEEN.


Meanwhile another bad boyfriend, Robert, goes to the "travel agents" again i.e. Vicky's house. She questions his relationship with Michelle (I thought she knew he was back with her and that was the reason he couldn't be with his baby-mama?). He tells her lies, sweet little lies - Michelle can't know about them because of her miscarriage. He also tells Michelle that he has been detained by an accident on the M60, but Ryan (who listens to the traffic news because he likes the sexy voice of the announcer), calls him out on it.

Meanwhile, Mary's run off her feet in the florists as Tracy is still doing her ladycabs thing. She finds an underemployed Steve reading the paper in the cab office and orders him over to Preston's Petals to learn the trade as a flower arranger. Steve puts on his best Jack Duckworth, saying he can't be in confined spaces, bend down, or stand up. He attempts to pick up some thistles with his bare hands and is soon sent back to the cab office with bandages on his fingers. Steve lures Tim round to his to build a wardrobe in order to placate our Trace, but they build it in the living room, because they're daft ha'porths.


And Chemma go to their 12 week scan, where they meet a woman who suggests that they sell their story to the press. "From Blob To Quad," suggests Gemma as a headline, but Chesney is unkeen, even forbidding Gemma from putting the scan photos on the internet.

Why would Yasmeen go to a winetasting? She doesn't sell wine in her restaurant. Geoff is a controlling jerk, high time Yasmeen kicks him to the curb.

Plus she's a devout Muslim so she doesn’t drink! Also, what spare room? Doesn't Alya live there? It's a 2-bedroom terrace house...

Tilly Flop said...

It's a 3 bedroom house surely as also Rana and Zeedan lived there along with Yasmeen and Alya

Thoroughly fed up now of Steve talking in that stupid voice.
So Tracy is prepared to ruin her business to save Steve's?

Kal used to live there too - so it's at least a 4-bed. Given that it's the same design of house as the Platt's, and they had 9 people living there at last count, who knows how many bedrooms it has?

In classic Corrie Gail's house definitely had 3 bedrooms. When she and Martin were discussing where Carmel was going to sleep they said that Carmel would have to share with Sarah and David would share with Nicky.

Annie said...

The Platt, Nazir and Metcalfe houses were three bedroom homes. The Platts’ converted their garage into a bedroom so it is a now a four bedroom home. Corrie bedrooms and finances are simply impossible to make sense of. The same with current storylines. Gemma, Geoff and Gary have turned me off. Please get rid of them!

The wine tasting scene was toe-curling bad. I'm sick of Steve speaking in that stupid comedy voice of his. No wonder we can't take him seriously whenever the actor is given a proper storyline.

Get rid of this producer before it's too late!

Thanks for all the bedroom info. I was forgetting it was one of the newer houses.
