Spot the Corrie prop - March 31st 2023

Congratulations this week go to Anonymous who was the first to spot that last week's terrific taxi print can be found in Gemma and Chesney's house. Well done!

For this week's prop puzzle all you have to do is tell us whereabouts on the Coronation Street set you would find this amazing artwork.



I'm sorry to say that this is my last "Spot the Corrie prop". I haven't watched the programme for a few months now and I'm not expecting to start again any time soon so I'm starting to lose track of who lives where. It's been fun for the past however many years and I wish all my regulars the best. I'll post the answer to this week's puzzle in the comments on this blog next week. Tara chucks!

Coronation Street Episode Review Monday 27th March

JENNY - RYAN - DAISY - GLENDA - CORONATION STREET - ITV 
 
My heart sank when Christina told Daisy that there was a curse on her family's weddings. I mean, there's a curse on all Corrie weddings, isn't there? The things going wrong are comical at first: Daisy's dress is too big (are leg-of-mutton sleeves back? Please kill me now), the cake is wrong, she has red-eye, the wedding venue hasn't done the seating, the wedding car has been stolen (you live opposite a cab firm, hun). Daisy is acting not so much Bridezilla as Bride Kong, but Team Double D is sorting all this stuff out and locking up the Rovers when it turns out that the person lurking in the corner of the pub is not your run of the mill functioning alcoholic but Justin with a vial of acid which he throws at Daisy, but it mostly misses and hits Ryan instead. Maybe he really didn't like Ryan's purple corduroy shirt?
 
Ryan has foolishly done the "cop talking about his last day before retirement" speech and says he's leaving for Ibiza with his long haired lover from Liverpool (as an aside, I only found out recently that Charlotte Jordan/Daisy is from Surrey, which explains her accent - I thought she was from a little known part of the Wirral where they talk funny) but he instead ends up in Kate Oates Memorial after Daisy manages to get hold of the only ambulance in the UK that you don't have to wait 8 hours for. Ryan shouldn't be too worried about being in hospital as a) Alya rushes to see him and b) we all know residents of Weatherfield have super healing powers and recover quickly from injuries and diseases that are never referenced again. My main hope is that Michelle isn't going to turn up to nurse him. 

JUSTIN - RYAN - DAISY - CORONATION STREET - ITV

So anyway, Daisy goes out of the hospital in the car park and spots Justin in his car. After demanding he get out of the car, she plays at him at his own game and repeats his fantasies back to him, that he has "earned" her love. He gets out and D.I. Blonde Ponytail and a uniform nab him. He's off to chokey.

AMY - SIMON - CORONATION STREET - ITV 
 
Other things that happened at the non-wedding:
 
Amy gets agitated when Adam gives her a squeeze and Simon notices. Tracy tells her "you can't go around biting people's heads off". No, you hit them over the head with a statuette.
 
PAUL - BILLY - CORONATION STREET - ITV
 
And Paul confesses to Billy that he's spent all of the loan. I mean, he could just move in with the Arch-deacon and be his sugar-baby? Not quite sure why they were at the wedding anyway - Daisy works with Gemma who is Paul's twin but it seems a bit tenuous. I guess Billy is the spare vic at the wedding.
