Review by:

It’s public service announcement time on Corrie as Fiz is rushed to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning following the untrained Tyrone’s attempts on Boxing Day to fix her broken boiler. Honestly, it’s like no lessons have been learnt since that moment in 1998 when Rita collapsed in her flat after Steve installed a faulty gas fire.

This time around, Tyrone is obviously feeling guilty, especially when the doctor tells him that Fiz may have suffered brain damage and could even die. Will he own up to Ches and Katy when they get back from holiday on Wednesday?

About this programme

Tyrone makes arrangements to meet Fiz for lunch, but grows concerned when she fails to turn up, unaware she's lying unconscious and alone at No 5. Will anyone reach her before it's too late? Carla starts to suspect Rob is trying to rip her off as she meets her business broker. The residents celebrate New Year's Eve in the Rovers, and Leanne gives Nick a birthday present.
