CORO­NA­TION STREET

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

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.
