MAN OF GOD AWARD ‘Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s BMX? Always a tricky one at Christmas.’ Billy, Corrie
And so, Jack and Ronnie’s big day has arrived (pictured). Will Ronnie raid her drawers (the wooden kind) and retrieve those hideous beige undies she acquired when first trying to seduce Jack (and every other man, come to that – costume department budgets have been cut)?

Should you care, it is: it’s the night before the 12th day after Christmas, night turning into day, blah, blah (Google it, people!).
