9 Sizzling Summer Spoilers for Coronation Street


There's a lot to look forward to this summer in Coronation Street.

It all starts next week when Coronation Street is on at 9pm every night. These five post-watershed episodes of our favourite soap will set the scene for the big storylines that take us into the summer.

Corrie producer Kate Oates this week revealed to us at the Corrie press day some of the major summer storylines. And so here we go with 9 of our favourites!

1. Michelle's boyfriend Will returns
2. Erica's exit is tied up with Kevin Webster 
3. Eva's revenge on Aidan and Maria will be very Eva the Diva
4. Bethany begins the process of breaking free from Nathan and escaping the brainwashing
5. There'll be a new name above the door at the Rovers
6. Billy and Todd become parents - new character Summer arrives
7. Phelan's daughter arrives and changes him
8. Comedian Vic Reeves will be joining the show
9. Someone from Robert's past turns up. Please, don't make it his wife Joanie again!

Kate Oates also revealed more about the 6th episode and the set expansion. You can read more on that here. 

And although this isn't a definite storyline, she did mention that bringing in Tim's mum had been talked about. Oh, Corrie, please make this happen!

And Ken fans can sleep easy, as the Corrie producer revealed that she had no plans to kill off Ken. Find out why here.

5 Things We Learned in Corrie This Week

It's been another cracking week in Weatherfield this week.

I'm so pleased that people seem to be enjoying reading my 5 Things We Learned posts, so I might just continue with them. Thank you for the lovely feedback. And so, here's what we learned in Corrie this week.

Under the floor is never a good hiding place.  Whether it's a poetry book or a dead man called Callum you know that in soap loand, that whatever it is you've buried under the floor is going to come up and haunt you in the end.


Natalie Barnes has not been forgotten.  
Husband-stealer Natalie went after Kevin while Sally was away looking after her ill mum in Scarborough. But Sally blamed Gina for the breakup of her marriage. Oh, Sally, it wasn't Gina's fault.


Sally's got an Aunty Ethel. Not only that, but Aunty Ethel's got a lovely canteen of cutlery too.


Tambourine Street exists. Sally told Gina she'd pulled some strings with the council to find her a house on Tambourine Street. I do hope this will be part of the new Coronation Street set.


Cocoa coagulates if it's not stirred. Cocoa wars broke out at the cafe when Roy made his displeasure known at Brian not washing up the teaspoons. Mess with Roy's teaspoons at your peril!

Chesney to be killed off in Coronation Street?


As always with tabloid spoilers, take everything they say with a pinch of salt until confirmed or denied by ITV.

There's a story in today's Sun what says Chesney Brown will be stabbed - and could possibly die

The source? Our favurite, of course! It's Mr Curry Sauce who tells the Sun: “A gang of thugs try to rob the Bistro. They smash up the place and then Chesney gets in the way.

"One stabs him in the neck with a broken bottle. Michelle is seen screaming while Daniel and Adam rush to Chesney’s side, trying to keep him awake. But he is slipping in and out of consciousness.

And the big cliff-hanger will be whether he survives the attack or not. He wouldn’t be the first soap star to make a miraculous recovery. But things aren’t looking too good for him.”

Martyn Hett's act of random kindness to Eileen Derbyshire


Eileen Derbyshire, who plays Emily Bishop, may be away from our screens at the moment but she is never far away from Corrie fans' thoughts. And one of those fans was Martyn Hett, who died this week in the Manchester bomb attack. 

On the afternoon of the day that Martyn died, he sent a tweet to Eileen Derbyshire's son, Oliver Holt. Oliver is the Chief Sports Writer with the Daily Mail. The tweet from Martyn included this picture above showing Oliver as a boy with his mum.

Oliver has written about this random act of kindness in a beautiful piece. I urge you to read it.

There will be a vigil for Martyn Hett tonight from 7-9pm at Heaton Moor Park (SK4 4PY). Martyn's brother Dan is on twitter and posted details of the vigil today. You can follow Dan on twitter @DanHett

Corrie Weekly Awards for May 22 - 26


Shoe Shock award: The definitive clue (or so Ken thinks). The red shoes are Adam's !

Cards on the Table award: Daniel for standing up to and threatening Adam if he causes Sinead to get into trouble.

Cry Wolf, er... Duck award: Norris was faking his injury.

Cone of Invisibility award: Adam grabs Daniel, punches him in the stomach and loads him into the boot. In broad daylight. On the street (Ok, round the corner on Viaduct street by the door of the flat but it's facing to the Bistro). Nobody sees. Nobody.

Superstition award: Brian got all bothered when Roy used a knife to stir his tea, and when salt was spilled and an umbrella opened inside. I'm sure I missed some. (But if Brian had done the dishes when he was supposed to, the knife stir wouldn't have happened.)

Consumer Fail award: Why on earth, if Daniel hasn't lived in or paid rent on a flat in nearly 6 months, is the landlord JUST NOW come after him to paint the walls? No landlord would have left that flat empty that long.

A Battersby Scorned award: Leanne tore a strip off Nick. An angry Battersby is a sight to be feared!

Lines of the week:
Ken "That book made a real impression on me" (You don't say!)
Mary "You were attacked by a couple of ducks, Norris,not a pack of wolves"
Mary "There's something else. A smell. Hotpot. And Destiny"
Adam about Sinead "Can't tell if she wants to sleep with me or murder me" (Oh I can tell you! Looks *can* kill!)
Steve about the pub "If these walls could talk, they wouldn't be short of something to say" (ain't that the truth!)
Brian "Stir with a knife, stir up strife"
Nick "I want Steve to lose the pub but not if Peter gets it" (The words Up and Grow come to mind)
Leanne "Can you have Oliver for a bit, cause he's too young for the sight of blood"
Nick "You sinking all the profits into a baby you're never going to have" Toyah "Wow that's not below the belt that's three floors down!" Leanne "Buy a pub you don't even want with money you don't even have unless you won a lottery and didn't tell me that either"
Daniel "Don't worry. He's perfectly safe with me" (shiver)
