Coronation Street

It’s a shame Robin Askwith (Ritchie) is no longer in Corrie because the current plotline involving Peter Barlow has unintentionally turned into a 1970s Timothy Lea sex comedy. In this instalment of Confessions of a Randy Alcoholic, Peter takes Tina to a hotel bar, only for Rob to turn up while she’s in the loo. Can Tina be sneaked out through the fire escape before Rob clocks what’s going on?

Over at Underworld, the factory girls remain annoyed with the shame-faced Izzy, who has decided to return to work. The rest of us are just narked by what appears to be a recycling of the Janice Battersby lottery syndicate story from 2008.

About this programme

Peter has to fight against his craving for alcohol to fulfil his promise to be at Carla's first scan, while Tyrone sees red and punches Todd after he insults Maria, leaving Fiz furious. Owen tells Anna he feels he's let his family down and is going to look for a job, and Luke persuades Maria to let him buy her a drink.
