Coronation Street

Review by:
David Brown

Corrie is a real mixed bag at the moment. On the one hand, there’s the anguish of Roy being imminently parted from an ailing Hayley, on the other there’s the contrivance of Peter and Tina’s lust. One storyline marks the end of a tender 15-year relationship, the other is the product of two characters being thrown together despite barely exchanging a nod and a smile for the past half decade.

Sharing screen time with them both tonight are Steve and Michelle, who are dealing with the prospect of a surprise pregnancy. She’s not exactly over the moon, he’s doing a celebratory dance. Can any common ground be found?

About this programme

Peter is on his way to a business meeting when he bumps into Tina and urges her to stay in Weatherfield. Before long they are in her flat so they can speak in private, while the client Peter was supposed to meet arrives at the factory and asks Carla where her husband has got to. Kylie and David feel awkward as he moves his belongings back into No 8 and Lloyd is delighted when Andrea drops by to see Steve at the Rovers. Michelle is in a bad mood, claiming she has put on weight, so the last thing she needs is Maria joking she might be pregnant. Could her friend be right?
