Coronation Street

Coronation Street

Episode 8431



Where has the humour on Corrie gone? Oh for the days when the Street’s matriarchs would prop up the bar of the Rovers Return and pithily discuss fellas while their feckless menfolk connived in the corners. At the moment it’s all bankruptcies, dour relationship bust-ups and sweating murderers. Can’t we have a few finely crafted put-downs to lighten the load?

It seems not, because here a cash-strapped Owen is summoned to court and a banged-up Peter Barlow is depressed because he’s heard nothing from his dad. Excuse me while I dig out some old episodes featuring Eddie Yeats and Stan Ogden to give me a much-needed laugh.


Neil quizzes Steve about his private life as he takes a taxi to the airport, and Andrea begs Lloyd to give her another chance. Will he be able to forgive her? Amy asks if she can borrow Uncle Albert's medal for her First World War project, but Rob can't find it, while Owen and Anna break the news to Gary, Izzy and Katy about their dire situation. Roy and Emily discuss the closure of the library with Yasmeen, who insists they need to take direct action.
