CORONA­TION STREET

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

For a woman whose re­la­tion­ships end ei­ther with her killing her lovers, or them want­ing to kill her, Tracy has great suc­cess in her lust life. At the start of the week the deed with Tony ( be­low) has been com­mit­ted, but both re­gret it. The cat may be out of the bag, though, when Todd (the Devil In­car­nate) spots them, and catches Tony ly­ing.

Gary rows with the fam­ily on Christ­mas Eve and storms off, telling them he’ll spend Christ­mas else­where (to ev­ery cloud...), and Callum tempts Kylie with a huge bag of co­caine. Given that he clearly makes tons of money from drugs, couldn’t he hang out in a bet­ter place than that aw­ful Dog and Gun? Let’s hope Kylie used caster sugar for the Christ­mas cake ic­ing, and didn’t get her bags mixed up.

Callum is back on Christ­mas Day – this time with a bag of speed for Kylie an and a brand new bike for Max ( I guess th that’s what they call a speed bike). All hell br breaks loose when Callum re­veals his id iden­tity to David.

Box­ing Day be­comes Bat­ting Day for Ro Roy when, find­ing Gary rob­bing him an and not re­al­is­ing who he is, he at­tacks him wi with a cricket bat. Howzat! Also on Box­ing D Day, it seems Liz’s friend Erica might be ha hang­ing around a bit longer, when Sean an and Eva tell her Nick’s a dif­fer­ent man si since he met her. Re­ally? One who’s not st stiff with rigor mor­tis for a change? The fes­tive sea­son takes its toll on Mondo when he’s faced with a saga in­volv­ing a Christ­mas present for Juliet. The young dad is shocked but prob­a­bly not very sur­prised to learn that Juliet is a chip off the old block – she’s been play­ing Ray by giv­ing him a long list of gifts she wants and telling him her dad has no money.

Juliet is show­ing some se­ri­ous spark – when Mondo has a word with her about her ma­nip­u­la­tive be­hav­iour with Ray she outs Mondo by re­veal­ing he told her to suck up to John. Yip, it’s a very busy week of in­dus­trial re­la­tions for Mondo.

It’s more trou­bled re­la­tions among the on­cehappy cou­ples of Car­rigstown. Will Yvonne’s re­cently heavy-handed rev­e­la­tions mean the end of the road for Carol and Dan (be­low)?

There’s a nod to how un­com­fort­able Christ­mas can be for many peo­ple as Charlie strug­gles with­out Es­ther. He makes ex­cuses to avoid the company of other peo­ple and spends Christ­mas morn­ing in Rag­nall Place to just the sound of a tick­ing clock. When he meets the Fa­heys later in the park they get him to waltz around the band­stand. With a lifted mood, Charlie turns on the Christ­mas lights and calls ev­ery­one for car­ols.

WISE MEN FROM THE EAST? CER­TAINLY NOT THE EAST END

ALL I WANT FOR CHRIST­MAS IS... Re­mem­ber th­ese plots that had us hooked?

Tom King’s fi­ancée Char­ity Din­gle is hav­ing an in­ti­mate chat with her for­mer lover Zoe Tate (above left, with Char­ity) – lit­tle re­al­is­ing his wicked daugh­ter-in-law Sadie is lis­ten­ing in, and plot­ting to tell Tom about his brideto-be’s racy past.

When a young pa­tient dies on Christ­mas Day, nurse Martin Platt com­forts col­league Re­becca Hop­kins (above) and they end up in a hos­pi­tal bed to­gether. Back at home Martin feels guilty – all the more so when his wife Gail starts get­ting amorous.

The Sharon, GrantG and Phil love tri­an­gle fi­nal­lyf reaches its con­clu­sion. After months of m mak­ing Sharon suf­fer for s sleep­ing with his brother Phil, Grant Mitchell gets his w wife to sign di­vorce pa­pers o on 25 De­cem­ber and she m moves to the US.
