CORONA­TION STREET

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

How many tons of baked beans have been con­sumed in the Web­ster house­hold? Not con­tent with ram­ming them down herr kids’ throats, Sally’s taken to feed­ing them m to Tim, too. Mon­day’s break­fast was a ver­i­ta­ble orange ocean.

Gail fared bet­ter at a restau­rant later. ‘Chicken liver par­fait with ar­ti­choke purée,’ she cooed. She couldn’t have been more ex­cited had she won the lot­tery. Let’s hope her world isn’t about to come crash­ing down, when Michael col­lapses at the Bistro (right). With son Gavin now work­ing there, is this the mo­ment for Michael to tell him about his hered­i­tary heart con­di­tion? (I can’t imag­ine it’s one that’ll be im­proved by con­sum­ing Nick’s food, though).But Gavin also has a se­cret. And Les Den­nis ( Michael) thought Fam­ily For­tunes was com­pli­cated.

Con­di­tions are sud­denly all the rage, it seems, and Steve is un­able to face up to his ei­ther, as he lies in bed, con­sumed with de­pres­sion. I’m still not con­vinced by this sto­ry­line, not least be­cause any­one would be de­pressed liv­ing un­der the same roof as Michelle and Liz. The doc­tor di­ag­noses The Con­di­tion, sug­gests psy­chother­apy and tells Steve to talk to his fam­ily. Later, Lloyd tries to talk to him, telling him he’s throw­ing his life away – this, com­ing from a man who has to be ex­ca­vated from the grotty chair in the cab of­fice when a job beck­ons. Just have a pint, Steve – you’ll be fine.
