As far as Tracy’s concerned, a dodgy kidney is a small price to pay to get back together with Steve and, following his comforting words on Friday, that is what she’s hoping for. I wonder which part of ‘Never Never Never’ did she not understand a few weeks back? Still, with the couple back at the centre of the soap’s storylines, it gives us another chance to put Stevewatch into action, as we try to guess how many times Tracy will say her ex’s name in a week. Let’s see: five episodes... I’m going for 37 – supposing her treatment hasn’t knocked the habit out of her (can you have a word lobotomy?).
While Tracy dreams of the future, Steve is trying to win back Michelle and is seen kissing her by Amy. Naturally, the child can’t wait to sha re the news with Dei rd r e ( hurray, a speaking part again – I swear she’s had three birthdays since she last spoke) who, on Thu r sd ay, t ackles Steve about having an affair behind Tracy’s back. Ever thought of just giving up women, Steve? He has about as much luck with the opposite sex as giraffe number three in the queue for Noah’s Ark.
It’s another traumatic week for the Windass/Armstrong clan who, to be honest, are beginning to bore me. First, it was all talk of Katy’s pregnancy and the difficulties of being a young mum; then Izzy was pregnant; then she wasn’t, and now, on Monday, Izzy and Gary consider adoption.
On Thursday, when they realise that Gary’s criminal record will go against him, Katy offers to be a surrogate. On top of all this it’s Joseph’s Chr istening on Friday. And guess what? Owen’s temper ruins the day. Yer
