Preview of tonight's Coronation Street - Weds 19 Feb


WEDNESDAY 19TH FEBRUARY

CHESNEY TAKES THE MIC When Aled won’t go to sleep the doctor says they will have to reschedule his appointment, meaning Ches and Gemma can get to the Fresco photoshoot. But when Aled starts to cry, Gemma becomes increasingly upset.
JAMES IS COMING OUT Over breakfast, James finally plucks up the courage and tells Ed that he’s gay.  Ed does his best to take the news in his stride but it’s clear he’s struggling and hurt to realise Aggie and Michael already knew. Will he accept this news?
KEVIN IS ABI’S KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR DC Holden calls at the garage again and drags Kevin in for further questioning.
ELSEWHERE Fiz confides in Tyrone that she’s sick of Jade playing the fun sister while she’s just the nagging mother. Tyrone feels for her. Christine calls at No.9 to arrange another visit with Jade. Fiz is quick to quash the idea and lies, making out that they’re off on holiday. Maria admits to Carla that she slept with Ali again, but she deeply regrets it and wants to be with Gary. 

WEDNESDAY 19TH FEBRUARY

FRESHCO SAY NO Grabbing the mic, Chesney addresses Tara and her team, pointing out that the whole campaign is a sham and the reality of looking after four babies is very different. A furious Tara tells Chesney that he’s completely trashed the brand and she’s terminating their contract with immediate effect. Chesney calls at the kebab shop and begs Dev to give him a job. Will he say yes?
EDISON REVEALS HIS TRUE FEELINGS Ed is convinced that Danny has corrupted James.
ABI’S FACED WITH THE HARD TRUTH Kevin returns to the garage and tries to be upbeat for Abi’s sake. Abi’s touched. In the Rovers, Sally warns Abi to stop leading Kevin a merry dance. Abi takes umbrage and assures Sally that her feelings for Kevin are entirely genuine. Kevin’s chuffed.
ELSEWHERE Fiz, Tyrone and the girls head off on their holiday much to Jade’s fury. Having reached a decision, Maria tells Gary that she’d love to marry him. Gary’s thrilled.

Corrie's slave storyline inspires Ruxandra Porojnicu's fundraising


Ruxandra Porojnicu plays Alina Pop in Coronation Street (or Alina Pop! as our blogger Merseytart calls her and I have to say, the exclamation mark at the end is a great addition to her name).

Ruxandra is training for the London Marathon this year. She says she was inspired to run the marathon to raise funds for the Salvation Army.

She says: "With the slavery storyline, people were congratulating me for helping to raise awareness but I felt I needed to do more. So I asked someone from the Salvation Army and they told me about the Marathon. When I first started training I wanted to throw up! Even though I went to the gym I just wasn't fit enough to run so much. But now I train five or six times a week and I'm making good progress. I'm excited!"

There's an excellent,long interview with Ruxandra Porojnicu in this week's Inside Soap magazine where the actress answers questions sent in by fans.

You can donate to Ruxandra Porojnicu's fundraiser here.
