Coronation Street Episode Review Monday 20th June

Apologies for the lateness of the review - yesterday I watched all of last week's episodes back to back in an attempt to get up to speed, so by the time it got to 8 p.m. I couldn't face any more.

MAX - BLAKE - CHRIS - ITV- CORONATION STREET 

It's maximum Max this evening as young Turner is looking forward to his date with Sonya. He asks for a haircut but David is unkeen after Max says he doesn't know what a "Bez" is. David was born two years after Wrote For Luck was released! Anyway, Max meets up with his awful mates, who slip him a condom and he then receives a text from Sonya asking him for a nude pic. Didn't we already do this storyline with Asha? And shouldn't these kids be at school in the middle of the day?

At the actual date, Sonya denies messaging Max and says someone must be pretending to be her and she hasn't received any photos. She storms out and Max then receives a text asking for £1K or the pics'll be released online. So....this is either karma for Max spreading the upskirting photos or a return to Max's bad lad ways as he tries to rustle up a grand. He tries to do a telephone transfer but the bank ring David to say that someone's trying to hack into his bank account and Max is forced to 'fess up.

At any rate, I don't think it'll take D.S. MacKinnon to work out who is catfishing him.

 RYAN - DAVID - AUDREY - ITV - CORONATION STREET

Still with the Platts, Gail forces Shona to look after Audrey but Shona puts a condition on it - Gail has to get rid of the bad vibes elephant. She suggests it should go in the barbers to replace the stuffed rodent. Not Vin Weasel! Gail then tries to bin it, but Maria "Greta Thunberg" Connor says it needs to be taken to the tip. I'm guessing Shona is over her brain injury now since I don't think anyone would expect someone with brain damage to look after an elderly pensioner. Anyhoo, Aud gives Shon the slip and runs off to the pub where Gail tracks her down and tries to wrest a bottle of Merlot from her mother, which then tips all over Gail's head. Poor Gail! Rita joins Audrey for a drink (or five) and they party like it's 1969. Audrey then tells her daughter that she's returning to Grasmere Drive, until she gets a new storyline.

ABI - KEVIN - ITV - CORONATION STREET

Meanwhile at the baby foster unit, Wendy Flamin' Crozier is dubious about accompanying Abi to the cobbles to see Kevin. This turns out to be a good inkling as Tracey verbally attacks WFC in the street. Abi is confused until WFC says she has history with Ken and Abi should just read Corriepedia.

SALLY - TIM - TRINA - CORONATION STREET - ITV 

Tim's downstairs area storyline is back. He says the change to his heart medication hasn't affected his nethers and he's worried that their conjugal life is over. Sally recommends golf or paddle-boarding although Dr G suggests a sex therapist and that goes down as well as you might think with Tim, although Sally books a private one. I haven't really worked out why Tim can't be there, you know, for Sally. 

And finally, Brian has a new "devil may care" image, which comprises a silky shirt that looks like it came from Tyrone's mid-life crisis collection, pink trews and a new aftershave called Perplexity, which smells, as Evelyn puts it, like a fruit trifle. Nice!
