Coronation Street

Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

Corrie doesn’t often go in for alpha males. There have been plenty of buffoons and enough feckless layabouts to stretch three times round the Red Rec. But a personal trainer who wants to whip the residents into shape? Yeah, good luck with that! The job has fallen to an old army pal of Gary’s – a striking fella by the name of Kal, who’s played by East is East star and one-time EastEnders medic Jimi Mistry. But can he really get Dev to fight the flab? After all, this is a man whose idea of heavy exercise is an amble around the golf course or – at the very most – a mercy dash to the cash and carry.

About this programme

Hour-long episode. After discovering David is staying with Audrey, an infuriated Nick demands that he leave the Street and Kylie confronts her husband in the salon. Izzy encourages Julie not to give up hope of raising a child, and Gary tells Dev his friend Kal (Jimi Mistry, joining the cast) can help him get into shape. Meanwhile, Dennis and Gloria reminisce about variety acts of yesteryear, much to Rita's dismay, and Sean is crushed when Brian reveals that Todd said hurtful things about him.
