Coronation Street

Episode 9187



Despite having been on the show since 2015, Bistro co-owner Robert Preston is pretty much a blank canvas. All he’s really done so far is vaguely antagonise Nick Tilsley and offer customers the specials from his menu (let’s face it, serving up smashed avocado isn’t going to win you a best actor trophy at the Soap Awards).

So, it was only a matter of time before “a face from the past” showed up with some handy exposition about Robert’s back story. Turns out there’s a lot of murky business about drugs (“smashed avocado with a sprinkling of cocaine, anyone?”), all of which leads to antsy, fop-haired Young Ken Clone Daniel making a purchase of some Class As. Unconsciousness soon follows.


Daniel buys drugs from Robert's old mate Rich, and Kate is shocked when she calls at Johnny's flat and sees the state of him. Elsewhere, Todd informs Billy he won't be able to make their first meeting with his goddaughter Summer, and Liz tells Alya and Kate they need to vacate the Street Cars flat.
