“Simon is my top priority,” Peter assures anyone who cares to listen. But the evidence isn’t exactly supporting that statement: so far he’s lost his son in both Blackpool and Weatherfield, burnt down their flat, turned up drunk to a school play and banned him from seeing Grandad Ken. So surely it’s a no-brainer when Simon is asked whether he wants to live with his dad or Leanne?

Although after Simon’s recent dalliance with screw-top wine, you have to question the wisdom of letting him move to the Rovers. Dev, meanwhile, is making as little sense as ever as he cries man tears before wondering whether he should marry Sunita.

About this programme

Stella assumes Karl is gambling again and throws his bags out on the street after she finds his stash of £7,000. Dev is taken aback when Sunita returns home and makes a clumsy proposal, while Eva insists on going to the Bistro for her date with Jason. Peter and Carla try to pick up the pieces, and Tracy and Beth concoct a plan to put a potential viewer off No 13.
