Coronation Street

Episode 8281

Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

Tina McIntyre is living dangerously (very dangerously, as anyone who saw Michelle Keegan on The Jonathan Ross Show recently will testify) as she throws herself at the boyfriend of her bitterest enemy.

Yes, she’s in the backyard of the Rovers Return snogging the face off Rob. But when Carla catches them mid-kiss, Rob begs her not to tell Tracy. But how exactly will Peter react when he hears the news?

Elsewhere, we bid farewell to the best buffoon this side of Fred Elliott as bumbling Brian Packham loads up his van and drives away, breaking poor Julie’s heart in the process. How will she and Bessie Street manage without him?

About this programme

Carla heads out to the Rovers' backyard to have a word with Tina, but is astounded to find her and Rob kissing passionately. How will Peter take the news? Kylie vents her anger at David when he lets Max open a present she bought for him, Julie is heartbroken as she watches Brian drive off, and Hayley receives a Christmas gift from Becky.
