Af Af­ter what feels like months and mo months of build up, the wed­ding day of K Kirsty and Ty­rone fi­nally ar­rives ( (left). lef But given that Kirsty has at last sussed her fi­ancé’s plan to get cus cus­tody of Ruby and shack up with Fiz Fiz, it looks like be­ing any­thing othe other than a quiet af­fair.

O On Wed­nes­day the ‘ happy cou cou­ple’ come to blows as Kirsty flie flies into one of her rages and falls dow down the stairs. See­ing her chance for r re­venge, Kirsty tells the po­lice that Ty­rone pushed her and, rather than rid­ing off into the sun­set with Fiz, he ends up locked in a cell.

It’ It’s grip­ping stuff with splen­did performa per­for­mances from all in­volved, with spe­cial credit to Natalie Gumede as Kirsty, who has nailed the char­ac­ter of the wildeyed psy­cho with aplomb. So much so that you can for­give the fact that Cor­rie only used the ‘fram­ing some­one for push­ing them down the stairs’ sto­ry­line last year with Becky and Tracy. It also makes up for the in­cred­i­bly te­dious So­phie and Jenna sto­ry­line cur­rently run­ning, which ends in Jenna fi­nally coming out of the closet to her par­ents and get­ting sus­pended from work for kiss­ing So­phie.

Con­sid­er­ing the most ex­cit­ing part of her day is coming down­stairs for her tea it’s no won­der Faye is ar­rang­ing meet­ings with a man called Tim. It turns out that Tim is her dad and Faye is dev­as­tated when Anna says she can never see him again.

Else­where smooth-talker Lewis spends much of the week try­ing to con­vince Gail to move to Europe with him to run a ho­tel. Hang on a minute, wasn’t that the ex­act same ploy he first used with Au­drey? Not very orig­i­nal th­ese con­men, are they?
