CORO­NA­TION STREET

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

Af­ter weeks of watch­ing them leer­ing at one an­other over the Rovers bar and kiss­ing on street cor­ners, it seems the hon­ey­moon pe­riod may now be fi­nally over for Su­nita and Karl.

Fol­low­ing his brief spell as a packer and de­liv­ery driver at the fac­tory ( just how many peo­ple does it take to box up the four pairs of knick­ers Un­der­world pro­duces ev­ery week?) Karl is, once again, out of work and broke. Yes, times are hard, but you can’t help feel­ing he might stand more chance of find­ing gain­ful em­ploy­ment if he ever ex­tended his search fur­ther than the end of his road. Got a job for me, Steve? No? Never mind; back to the sofa.

On Mon­day, Karl is of­fered the chance to buy a batch of smoke de­tec­tors. There’s only one prob­lem – he needs cash for the pur­chase, and he asks Su­nita to take it out of her and Dev’s joint ac­count.

Michelle may not be the quick­est to catch on (it took her 18 years to dis­cover the hospi­tal had given her the wrong baby), but on Thurs­day she fi­nally re­alises the ex­tent of Ryan’s drug use. It’s a chance for her and Steve – played with such lovely comic sub­tlety by Si­mon Greg­son – to grow closer to­gether.

Else­where, Rob agrees to give it an­other go with Eva but only be­cause it’s an ex­cuse to spend more time with Stella... who isn’t ex­actly beat­ing him off with a stick. Poor Eva. She’s al­ready lost one boyfriend to her sis­ter; she’s not go­ing to lose an­other to her mum, is she?

Psy­cho Kirsty’s back on the Street, and it isn’t long be­fore she’s kick­ing off again. On Mon­day, she learns that Tina and Tommy know all about her Mike Tyson ten­den­cies and or­ders Ty­rone to cut them out of his life.

Now com­pletely un­der her con­trol, Ty­rone goes one step fur­ther and sacks Tommy from the garage. You need to get in there

quick, Karl.
