Guess who'll move into Maria's flat in Coronation Street?

Now then, normally when I title a blog post with "Guess who..." it normally means I'll be revealing who the who is, if you know what I mean.  But in this case, I really would like to make a guess as to who will move into Maria's empty flat.

My guess - and hope - is that Freddie will take up the empty flat while Maria is serving at Her Majesty's Pleasure for the next few months.  As the flat's above Audrey's salon, this would lend itself very nicely to further development of Audrey and Freddie's relationship, with him as her tenant, living above the shop as it were.

But if it's not to be Freddie, what do you think should happen to the salon flat while Maria's away. Should anyone move in - and if so, who would you like to see there?

Coronation Street dream sequence - Yay or Nay?

Did anyone enjoy the Corrie dream sequence earlier this week? I'm still not sure what I thought of it, to be honest.

And can anyone remember Corrie ever doing a dream sequence before in its 56 years?

As I'm posing this blog post as a Yay or Nay, which demands a reaction one way or t'other from fans I should get off the fence and make my own opinion know.

Therefore ... I think, on the whole, it has to be a Nay from me.

Kate Ford, who plays Tracy Barlow in Coronation Street, has revealed that she suffers from endometriosis.

Kate tweeted in response to a twitter statement from US singer Halsey, who is currently recovering from "multiple surgeries" as a result of the illness.

Kate added to her tweet:  "I suffer from this it's not easy."

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb (the endometrium) is found outside the womb. The condition is estimated to affect around 2 million women in the UK.

Ben Price: "I once spent eight hours fighting Peter Barlow"

In this week's Inside Soap magazine there's a good interview with Ben Price, who plays Nick Tilsley in Coronation Street.  Ben talks about Nick and Peter's punch-ups on the cobbles. He says that as he and Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter, aren't getting any younger, their fight scenes take a lot more effort.

Ben says: "Recently we spent eight hours filming a fight scene and we aren't getting any younger, so by the end of it we were quite tired of trying to hit each other!"
Nick's got much on his mind next week in Corrie after Simon is injured in a car accident as Nick and Peter are arguing.  Simon turns out to be okay after a check-up in hospital but it really brings home to Peter how mich he loves Simon and wants to make peace with him.

Ben also says that his two children in real-life don't watch him on TV. "They're not particularly interested!" he says.

Adam Barlow tries to con the Connors

You can't kid a kidder, or in this case, you can't con a Connor - although Adam Barlow is going to give it his best shot and try.

Yes, Adam still thinks he's got a rightful share to the factory (he hasn't) and plans to take back what he thinks is his (it's not).

Inside Soap magazine tells us that Adam recruits Alya into his masterplan for domination of the knicker factory.  Alya gives Adam the factory keys and Johnny's password for the computer.   However, Adam's caught red-handed by Johnny and Aidan!

If anyone can remind us of how Adam relinquished his share of the factory, please do. (Blogger Tvor I'm looking at you and your Corrie wealth of knowledge and memory here...!)

Michelle's suicide danger in next week's Coronation Street

Next week on Coronation Street, Steve and Michelle prepare for the funeral of baby Ruari.  But as you can imagine, emotions are still running strong and things take a turn for the worse.

Inside Soap magazine tell us this week that after a few drinks in the Bistro, Michelle starts yelling and crying and then storms off into the night.

It's Robert who finds her, highly emotional, on the edge of a very high bridge and ready to jump.  Robert manages to talk her down from the bridge and as he does so, Michelle leans in for a kiss. He doesn't take advantage of the situation, however but Michelle does go on to pour her heart out to Robert after he saves her life.

Kym Marsh, who plays Michelle McDonald in Corrie, tells Inside Soap that Ruari's funeral "is exactly how Michelle and Steve want it to be."  And, the magazine tells us, Steve and Michelle will be back on track soon and ready to face the future together. Steve suggets a break to Ireland to stay with Michelle's parents.
