Steve the spenda­holic has money on his mind

Bray People - - CHRISTMAS -

Corona­tion Street


teve’s er­ratic be­hav­iour gives his friends and fam­ily cause for con­cern. His kit car has turned into a money pit, while he also spends a packet on a Rovers party. The trou­ble is he’s been us­ing Street­cars cash to pay for his in­dul­gences, leav­ing the cab company £10,000 in the red.

Lit­tle won­der Eileen and Michael are won­der­ing why they haven’t been paid. Steve thinks the best op­tion is to hide in his bed­room, and prom­ises he’ll sort the fi­nan­cial prob­lems, though it’s up to Liz to bail him out, with the aid of Rovers cash.

Mean­while, Gary takes his son out for the af­ter­noon. How­ever, when Jake suf­fers a slight in­jury, Izzy im­me­di­ately blames him for his lack of care.

The for­mer sol­dier’s prob­lems are com­pounded after buy­ing Jake the same present as Anna. Gary blows his top when Owen and Katy have a go at him for wast­ing Faye’s money on booze, but he hatches a plan to get the cash needed to re­place Faye’s head­phones and uses Anna’s keys to get ac­cess to Roy’s Rolls.

Alas, after find­ing the till empty, Roy pro­ceeds to beat him sense­less with a cricket bat, ter­ri­fied that Gary is one of the hood­lums who’s been plagu­ing him.

Crop­per is ar­rested for the as­sault, and even­tu­ally goes to court; lit­tle won­der he feels so aw­ful as his friends give him the cold shoul­der.

It looks like Tony and Tracy’s mo­ment of pas­sion will come back to haunt them. And although they agree to keep quiet about it, Todd won­ders what they’re up to.

Else­where, Kylie is haunted by Callum, who’s hang­ing around the street like a bad smell.

On Christ­mas Day he plays with fire at the Platts’. While Gail, Michael and David call in at the Bistro to see Nick, Kylie stays at home to pre­pare Christ­mas din­ner, and is hor­ri­fied when Callum lets him­self in and re­fuses to go. Later, when Kylie does a dis­ap­pear­ing act, David at­tempts to track her down.
