Coronation Street spoiler: New character Josh arrives


The previews are in for next week’s Coronation Street and handsome newcomer Josh arrives at the garage to apply for the mechanic’s job.

Josh gets the job at Webster’s autos and suggests a charity boxing match in memory of Luke.

In what may well turn out to be a completely unrelated storyline, Josh is the name of the man who will rape David Platt, it was revealed last month. It could be a different Josh, of course, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Coronation Street spoiler: Adam drugs Billy


The previews are in for next week’s Coronation Street and Adam has a plan to bring Billy down.

As Billy busies himself helping out at the community centre, he is suddenly wracked with pain and collapses on the floor. It’s Adam who finds Billy there and masking his delight he helps Billy back into his wheelchair, telling Billy he can get his hands on some stronger painkillers.

Playing the caring friend, Adam calls at No. 11. With Billy out, Adam swaps Billy’s strong painkillers for ordinary paracetamol. Wincing in pain, Billy takes a couple of painkillers, unaware they’re only paracetamol. Adam watches, pleased that his plan is coming together.

Coronation Street spoiler: Bethany’s lap dancing secret exposed


The previews are in for next week’s Coronation Street and Bethany’s lap dancing secret is set to be exposed.

Gary follows Bethany as she enters a lap dancing club and is horrified to realise that she and her mate work there as dancers. Gary’s threatened by the bouncers and the cops are called and it’s Craig who turns up.  He’s appalled to see that Gary’s been beaten up.

Craig takes Bethany home, where devoid of any shame, she tells Sarah she’s been working as a lap dancer and lies to her mum, saying that Gary came into the club and tried to grope her! When Gary explains to Sarah that Bethany set him up with her mate and then framed him for assault will Sarah accept his words?

But then Gail and Audrey decide to check out the lap dancing club unaware that Bethany has been called in to cover for another girl. Boss Lulu is suspicious about the pair’s questions and when Bethany walks on stage and spots her mum and gran in the audience she is mortified.

Coronation Street Episode Review Monday 15th January


Eileen's suspicious of Pat, but he in turn is suspicious of her, wondering why she's avoiding him. I guess when you're Phelan, you'd be quite right to be dubious of everyone and anyone. Overhearing Fay(e), Tim and Gary talking about Seb's disappearance, Eileen motors off to the prison to talk to Anna, who, having made friends with Top Dog Karen, now has a mobile. Anna tries to talk Eileen round, telling her that if she has the tiniest of suspicions, she should act on it. Eileen then visits Alya who tells her that she and Yasmeen are taking out a private prosecution against the Parkers, which puts Eileen's mind at rest. Meanwhile, Anna, with her unlimited credit, rings Faye and tells her that "with a little bit of luck, things could go back to normal". Oh, Anna. Ei makes a guilt-meal for Phelan and when Anna phones again, tells her to do one. Eileen, Eileen, Eileen, Eileen, I'm begging of you, please dob in your man.



Sinead has a go at Chesney, pointing out that he messed her around when they first got together. She has a point. Given that Chesney's idea of a honeymoon is a caravan in Wales, I think she had a lucky escape. Also in a mope mood is Craig, who takes it out on poor old Maria, who is now landlady to most of Weatherfield in her one bed flat. Craig's OCD is returning as he obsessively checks the time and turns off all the switches in the flat. Beth tries to warn Bethany not to put any additional stresses on Craig and Ms Platt Jnr claims that she would never hurt him. Well, we'll see about that. Bethany's doing her own interfering in relationships, telling her mum that she blocked Gary's number on Sarah's phone, meaning that Ms Platt Snr didn't receive any of his texts. Meanwhile, in the worst lap-dancing club in the world ("Tassels"), Craig and his boss, Jess, turn up to an altercation involving Bethany's pal, Sam. At first, Bethany hides in the back but then reveals herself and has a big row with Craig, who assumes someone is forcing her to become a lap-dancer. Bethany says she enjoys the work, it's her choice, that she's in control, and she has the power. Craig tells her to quit her job and Bethany decides to quit Craig instead.



Did Leanne pack in her job at the Bistro? As I remember, she was on maternity leave, but she now seems to be putting in part time hours at the pub. Anyway, Si's been selling stolen voddy, claiming that he had to get money. What for? Is he planning an escape to Hotton? Toyah asks if the missing bottle at Xmas was also down to Simon and Peter is forced to admit that it was him. I think Toyah is secretly pleased - she gets the chance to do an impromptu counselling session in the back room.


Nausea, burping, moodiness, weird taste in mouth, tiredness? Ask Dr Google. Well, that's what Shona does for Eva, who discovers that.....she's pregnant! Again! Only for realsies this time. I did wonder if this was going to be the storyline when she and Aidan bumped uglies on the night before the wedding, but it's been quite a while since then. It would seem more likely that Adam is the baby daddy but perhaps this is Eva and Aidan's joint exit storyline?


And finally, Sean's not convinced that a job in the abattoir is for him. I'm sure the feeling's mutual. Instead, Aidan offers him work knocking up some samples for a new client, items that Ruby and Hope show a keen interest in.

Rovers Return - from Weatherfield to the Dead Sea


There are many pubs and restaurants called the Rovers Return, not only in the UK but overseas too. But we've just discovered that there are three Rovers Return restaurants in the most unexpected of places - Amman, the Dead Sea and Aqaba.

The Rovers Return restaurants are a chain based on the famous Coronation Street pub and of course the menu offers Betty's Hot Pot too.

You can follow them on Facebook.  And their website is here.

Mind you ... will their Hot Pot be as good as the one Gemma and Michael cooked up from the Coronation Street recipe book? Find out here!

Gemma and Henry - what's going on?


I’ve been suspicious from the very start, but really, please, what on earth is going on? Well, to answer my own question, we know that Henry is ‘involved’ with Gemma for a bet. It seems it is as crude as that.

So, we have the toff with the working-class girl - all brash and brazen and on the surface with no finesse, at least not of the superficial kind. But there is an irony here, and that is that though Gemma appears to have no class, at least superficially, I repeat, she is in possession of some excellent qualities – and she has them in spades.

Gemma is the embodiment of loyalty. It was Gemma who went back into the Register Office room to check that Chesney was ok after the wedding collapsed. It was Gemma who devoted herself to Rita when she had a brain tumour diagnosed and was the best friend anyone could have had.

Gemma has her rough edges, but she is decidedly a good person, despite her background and some of the friends she hung around with in her earlier days.

Why then is Henry on the scene? Does Gemma really want to be with him? Is Henry engaged in some kind of social experimentation? It was confirmed in Friday’s second episode that Henry was going out with Gemma for a bet. Such an undertaking is at best stupid and at worst cruel. It will end, Gemma will be hurt and Henry will continue his life pretty much unscathed by the experience. His attitude towards Gemma can be summed in some of the words of the secret telephone call he made. ‘Can you believe the cheeky wench tried to finish with me?’ Wench! Are we in a Shakespearian tavern in 1590? Heaven help us if there are people still referring to women as wenches!

It could have been so much better. Henry’s snobbery could have been exposed by Gemma and her ‘rough diamond’ character could have genuinely turned Henry’s head and maybe they could have had an honest relationship. The storyline could have been treated with a light, deft touch and Gemma could have mocked him, gently, because no one can help the class that they were born into. As it stands, we are left with an untapped vein of humour and if our favourite street needs anything right now, it is a sizeable dose of humour.
