Michelle returns from staying with Carla this week and she’s only back two minutes before all hell is let loose. First off, Robert gives her a job at the Bistro and by way of interview he checks her sub-duvet skills up in his flat. She gets the job and he tells her he loves her. Then, when the lovebirds take the lift together at Victoria Court after their spot of afternoon delight, the lift doors open while they’re mid-snog and Steve cops an eyeful of his missus and the Bistro boss. Robert, to me, is soap’s most boring man, happy to hang on to Michelle’s tail coats as she fires up Steve for half of his earnings and half of the pub. This could turn out to be a very nasty divorce.
Peter’s arrested this week on suspicion of attacking Chloe who lies to the cops and says she was attacked the night before Ken was pushed down the stairs. There’s now too many suspects and too many plot holes in this story for me to care much, I’m afraid.
David and Maria wind up Gail summat rotten and tell her that they’re engaged with a baby on the way. It’s left to Audrey to point out to gullible Gail that the young ‘uns are winding her up. So when David gets a call to say he’s been left twenty thousand pounds in the will of a salon customer, I wondered if it was a wind up from Gail getting her revenge. But it’s real enough, and David sees a solicitor who verifies it all. Also left in the will to David is a little Yorkshire Terrier called David too, a cutie of a doggy if ever there was.
When Sarah tells Gary about David’s windfall, he strops off in a huff, saying that the money should go to Anna after David’s plan to kill Clayton with his car caused Ann to be set on fire last year. Gary says the same thing to David, who hands over a cheque of nineteen thousand to Anna, without question. His guilty conscience has been eased, Anna’s got a smile on and Kev’s garage looks set to be saved from bankruptcy. Hurrah!
Elsewhere this week, Bethany caves in and heads to the salon on the lookout for Nathan to put things right between them once more. She tells mum Sarah that she’s going to be spending more time at Nathan’s flat than on Coronation Street, from now on.
Meanwhile, Jenny continues to plan her wedding this week and Johnny begins to suffer. First it’s his hands he has problems with, he can’t button up his shirt. And then he stumbles and falls on the cobbles. Kate thinks her dad has been drinking but Liz confirms that it was only orange juice she served Johnny with. Jenny hires and fires Michelle as her wedding planner in a wonderful scene that saw Bridezilla Bradley, as she must surely now be known, at fantastic full throttle. And finally, after Seb broke Jackson’s jaw in the punch-up on the cobbles some weeks ago, Seb’s now locked up after pleading guilty in court. Faye begs Phelan to take her to see Seb and lies behind Anna’s back regarding Seb and Phelan too.
And that’s just about that for this week.
