Coronation Street

Review by:

Deirdre is concerned to find Eileen frantically cleaning after working all night and not sleeping. But when Paul arrives home, will he pick up on his fiancée’s mounting anxiety? Failing that, he might just get a whiff of the Shake n’ Vac.

There’s tension at the hospital, too, in this hour-long episode as Tommy tells Tina he’ll stand by her if she decides to keep the baby. Think again, Tina. That child’s got Windass genes. He’ll have a police caution by the time he’s out of pre-school!

Karl, meanwhile, is hatching a plan to manipulate Steve and Lloyd. But, let’s face it, you hardly need to be Iago to get one over on those two.
