JACI STEPHEN’S ul­ti­mate in­sight into the week’s soaps

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

Owen comes back and tries to paper over the cracks in his re­la­tion­ship with Anna. You can’t help feel­ing that if she could tear her­self away from that laun­dry bas­ket for five min­utes they might stand a bet­ter chance. How much wash­ing does the poor woman have? Owen then tells Gary y that Anna slept p with Phe­lan to keep him out ou of prison (left).

Steve S and Michelle are also try­ing try to mend their re­la­tion­ship shi while Tim and Sally cel­e­brate bra when he goes down on one knee and asks her not to marry ma him. Un­con­vinced as I orig­i­nally ori was by this pair­ing, Joe Dut­tine and Sally Dynevor have hav cre­ated a comic duo that works wor be­cause of the dis­parate char­ac­ters, cha and of­ten to laugh aloud alou ef­fect.

Carla C gets drunk ( back to form, form then), and Jenna is up­set that Lloyd wants to take An­drea on hol­i­day. h Go, please. Now. I’ll buy the tick­ets.

Re­mem­ber these plots that had us hooked?

Sadie King’s feud with Char­ity Tate comes to a head. Sadie’s ac­cused her of steal­ing to blacken her name but Char­ity (above right) hits back by ac­cus­ing Sadie (above left) of cheat­ing on her hus­band Jimmy in front of his fam­ily in the Wool­pack.

A heart­bro­ken Alma Bald­win re­moves her wed­ding ring as she tells her cheat­ing hus­band Mike their mar­riage is over (above). Mike, a se­rial wom­an­iser, was caught out when he found him­self blackmailed over a one-night stand.

Fans were de­lighted when lov­able loser Nigel Bates went down on one knee and pro­posed to Deb­bie Tyler (above). Deb­bie said ‘yes’ and their wed­ding marked the show’s 1,000th episode the fol­low­ing month. Un­usu­ally for a soap cou­ple they had a happy mar­riage.
