Soap spoilers! The week ahead in Coronation Street, Emmerdale and EastEnders

14-18 January: Walford gets its moral guardian back when Dot returns to Albert Square, while Tyrone's secret mobile goes walkabout in Weatherfield

Coronation Street


Any right-minded viewer could tell that Tyrone’s secret mobile wasn’t going to stay stashed in that paint can for long. And sure enough, the Fiz Phone goes walkabout this week and ends up stuffed down the sofa at No 9. Will Kirsty find it just as she’s making final arrangements for the wedding? Kylie’s plans are also jeopardised when David gets wind of the abortion she’s intending to have. What he doesn’t know, of course, is that the baby might not be his…


Keeping track of Declan and Megan’s sibling relationship requires dedication: first he fleeces her and she leaves, then she returns to fleece him before he says sorry and they agree to stop fleecing each other. Maybe everyone at Home Farm will now keep a better eye on their bank balances — if only to help us stay free of headaches. David, meanwhile, tries to make his life easier but ends up giving little Jacob false hope for the future.



Walford gets its moral guardian back when Dot returns to find that her neighbourhood has turned into Sodom and Gomorrah. For a start, Cora has transformed her house into a pigsty, but even more shocking is the sight of Lauren and Joey in a state of undress on the settee. Several glasses of medicinal sweet sherry are going to be needed after she takes in that tableau. And all that’s before Dot clocks the state of affairs at the launderette, where sparks soon fly over the service washes.
