When did Kevin and Sally’s eyesight get so bad – and why, given that it has, did they go to Joe 90s R Us for their glasses? When Kevin took Sally to Nick’s Bistro for a ‘treat’ (I use the word loosely; the Ritz it ain’t) on Monday, people were running for cover when Kevin donned the monstrous eye bubbles to view the menu. Next, it was Sally’s turn, and she looked as if she’d been swallowed by a spaceship. Little did they know that their efforts were in vain anyway, as the Bistro doesn’t even have a chef (something that has escaped Nick’s notice).
Now that Kevin and Sally are the new Ken and Deirdre, we must turn our attention for the lust factor to Karl and Sunita. With Dev away with the kids in Scotland on Monday ( is anyone else swal lowing Adi’s golfing prowess? No? Me neither), Sunita asks Karl i f he fancies keeping her company. It’s hard to imagine Karl summoning up the energy for breath, let alone adultery, but Sunita proves hard to resist. Still, after the vowel monster thaaaat iiiiis Deeeeeeeev, her ears must be grateful for the break.
On Wednesday, the lovers are struggling to find time alone (there’s always the Rovers’ toilet: it’s good enough for most people), but when Sunita dissuades Dev from selling the flat above the shop, it’s clear she’s viewing it as a love nest. On Thursday, the pair enjoy a bit of, er, flat-warming, but even that does not suffice, and on Friday, as they engage in a bit of slap and tickle in the back room, Stella walks in. Will she catch them in the act? Doubtful. They’ll be running this storyline until Christmas, I reckon.
After a tough week, Lesley has a sad end on Friday after a tragic accident. So, will it be plain sailing now for Paul and Eileen? I’m going to say one word: Titanic.
