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

Soap sis­ters are so un­alike, it’s of­ten hard to be­lieve they came out of the same womb – as Cor­rie’s Tim pointed out when Rosie re­turned. Model and ‘host­ess’, she couldn’t be more dif­fer­ent from les­bian Chris­tian So­phie and, as Tim again as­tutely re­marked, ‘Sally must’ve been knock­ing back the Red Bull for nine months.’

Rosie’s re­turn is as wel­come as the de­par­ture of EastEnders’ Ron­nie and Roxy. They rarely had a good word to say about each other, not least be­cause they were prone to shar­ing their men­folk.

In Em­merdale, half-sis­ters Ber­nice and Nicola pro­vide most of the fe­male sib­ling en­ter­tain­ment and have one thing in com­mon – they’re both sex mad. How this tal­lied with Ber­nice mar­ry­ing gay Lawrence is any­one’s guess, but we’ll have to wait and see whether she’ll be drawn back to Andy’s six-pack if and when he re­turns (we can but hope).

Mean­while, back in Cor­rie, Leanne, Toyah and Eva (all half/step/semi sis­ters – I’ve lost track) have fallen out. In soa­p­land, don’t ex­pect a ren­di­tion of the song Sis­ters any time soon.
