CORONA­TION STREET

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

My word, Cor­rie can drag out a sto­ry­line. This week sees the con­tin­u­ing deadly-dull saga of Ty­rone, Fiz, Ja­son and the botched loft con­ver­sion. Also rum­bling on and bor­ing the pants off ev­ery­one is the sorry tale of An­drea’s creepy ex Neil. He threat­ens to top him­self and Lloyd races to the house to check if he’s OK. What a shame Ja­son didn’t do a loft con­ver­sion there – then the ceil­ing could have fallen in and seen off Neil and Lloyd in one hit.

Re­leased from hos­pi­tal and back in prison (or ‘the big house’ as Jim in­sists on call­ing it), Peter finds him­self on the re­ceiv­ing end of some threat­en­ing be­hav­iour from Jim (be­low left), so he does, who fears he is about to be ex­posed as the sup­plier of prison hooch.

And their re­la­tion­ship isn’t im­proved by big­mouth Tracy telling Steve his dad was the one who gave booze to Peter. This causes Steve to re­nege on his prom­ise to tak take Amy to visit Jim. That’s a great sha shame be­cause the way she’s go­ing, she she’ll fit right in.

M Mean­while, it’s a race against time to sav save Ec­cles as Amy is still mak­ing out tha that he bit her, so she can get the dog de de­stroyed – know­ing that it will break her co cousin Si­mon’s heart. And ‘Muddy’ starts he her new job at Un­der­world and im­presses Ca Carla with her work ethic. Given the rest of Carla’s work­force spend their en­tire tim time gossiping and go­ing on cake runs, I imag­ineim imag­ine Carla is very eas­ily pleased. It’s the 25th an­niver­sary of the soap but some things never change in Car­rigstown. Yes, there’s more jeal­ousy, sus­pi­cion and heartache this week.

Dan and Yvonne (be­low) are en­joy­ing their new home, but of course there’s al­ways some­thing around the cor­ner to spoil things.

This time, it’s Rob­bie who is the party-pooper. His re­sent­ment of Dan grows when Dan is un­will­ing to help him. On Tues­day Carol is sus­pi­cious when she dis­cov­ers Rob­bie’s man­aged to get Dan to do him a favour. On Wed­nes­day, Dan dis­cov­ers that Rob­bie has set him up, only for Carol to come to the res­cue on Thurs­day.

Christy’s at­tempt to make amends with Seán leads to a calami­tous ac­ci­dent this week. On Tues­day, Seán and Christy have a row, which leads to another set­back for Christy.

AL­FIE’S PLAN GOES UP IN FLAMES

HAPPY BIRTH­DAY! Re­mem­ber th­ese plots that had us hooked?

Gang­ster Andy Hunter mar­ries Sam Mitchell (above), de­spite love­able loser Minty Peter­son’s 11th-hour at­tempt to stop the cer­e­mony. Minty se­cretly loves Sam and has found out that Andy is us­ing her to try and fleece her fam­ily.

Mandy and Butch Din­gle (above) have their mar­riage an­nulled, leav­ing her free to plan her next wed­ding to Paddy Kirk. Hav­ing mar­ried her cousin Butch for money, Mandy had never been able to get true love Paddy out of her mind.
