Coronation Street

Episode 8303

Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

A visibly weak Hayley starts to say her goodbyes to her friends, but it’s heartening to know that she’s reserved some energy for riling vile Tracy. Julie Hesmondhalgh tells RT what we can expect from the scene: “She says something like, ‘there she is, Tracy Barlow. Her mother’s ashamed of her, her daughter barely knows her, even her donor kidney wants to reject her. And she’s still walking round, passing judgement on the rest of us. Well, not us – come on Roy!’”

It’s a lighthearted moment in what is set to be a tough double bill as Hayley – knowing her time is almost up – decides to have a word with Roy. Is this the conversation he’s been dreading?

About this programme

Roy wheels Hayley round the Street to say her goodbyes - bumping into old friends and even finding the strength to have a go at Tracy, much to her husband's amusement. Back at home, is she really prepared to end her own life? A wary Anna finally agrees that Owen should go ahead with the Phelan project, while Nick and Leanne make plans for a holiday. Tracy is furious when Steve agrees to drive Dev and Stella to the retailers' ball, leaving her and Rob waiting in the rain, and decides to seek revenge.
