The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - NEWS - JACI STEPHEN’S ul­ti­mate in­sight into the week’s soaps

An­other year over. A year in which EastEn­ders’ Phil Mitchell’s liver gave up, Cor­rie’s Mary turned out to be a mother (I feel a song – Mary’s Boy Child) and Em­merdale’s Ash­ley be­came the vic­tim of the cru­el­ties of de­men­tia.

At the end of 2016 the stork, Cupid and the Grim Reaper were as firm bed­fel­lows as ever. So, what can we ex­pect in 2017? My pre­dic­tions are (1) Cor­rie’s Rovers will change hands, once Michelle dis­cov­ers the iden­tity of Leanne’s baby daddy (please, please make Mary land­lady); (2) No­body will smile in EastEn­ders; (3) Em­merdale’s Cain and Char­ity will get back to­gether, break up, get back to­gether (you get my drift).

Who’ll have the worst New Year hang­over? Will it be a happy-ever-af­ter for EastEn­ders’ Jack and Ron­nie (ha­haha – fat chance)? Will Em­merdale’s florists in­crease their tak­ings (again)? Happy/Un­happy New Year to them all.
