Coronation Street

Episode 8380



Traditionally, the marked lack of sporting prowess among Weatherfield’s menfolk has provided a rich source of humour. Think Stan Ogden in the wrestling ring or Dev Alahan on the golf course. But events take a dark turn in this episode when the fitness rivalry between Steve and Lloyd ends with the latter having a heart attack during the race they’ve been training for. Steve is obviously filled with guilt and recrimination, but is Lloyd’s girlfriend Andrea’s response entirely genuine?

Away from the hospital, there’s the usual male fecklessness on display as Dennis runs out of second chances and Tim gets a much-needed helping hand to get back with Sally.


Steve blames himself for Lloyd ending up in hospital, while Andrea arrives and spins a story about being waylaid by a friend. Owen thinks money worries are behind Anna's outbursts and decides to make a sacrifice to help her, while Jason urges Tim to fight to win Sally back. Dennis is devastated when Rita tells him to find somewhere else to live, and Julie hands Izzy the charity money raised from the race.
