Coronation Street

Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

How Kirsty’s managed to hoodwink everyone is a mystery. Those death-ray stares are like something out of The Omen – all that’s missing is the Carmina Burana soundtrack. Someone should select this music on the Rovers’ jukebox, just at the moment when Kirsty’s waters break as she’s having a massive bust-up with Tina. Yes, you heard it here first: a mere four years on from Violet giving birth to Dylan, the pub is set to be the scene for another Weatherfield arrival.

Pity though that this time around, the mum-to-be’s a complete maniac and that poor Tina gets made a pariah in the process.

About this programme

Hour-long episode. Tommy is surprised when Tyrone turns up eager to make friends, but Tina is not so forgiving and angrily confronts Kirsty in the Rovers - causing her waters to break. With no time to wait for an ambulance, it falls to Marcus to help deliver the baby. Elsewhere, Michelle's patience is tested when Tracy and Ryan thwart her plans for a romantic meal with Steve at the flat, Chesney receives a surprise offer from Cilla, and Jason thinks moving in with Maria would be a good idea.
