CLAUDIA CON­NELL’S ul­ti­mate in­sight into the week’s soaps

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - NEWS - Jaci Stephen is away

Hyp­ocrites don’t come much big­ger than the ones you meet in soaps. We’ve seen how Martin Fowler is strug­gling to for­give his sis­ter Michelle for her fling with teenage stu­dent Pre­ston in EastEn­ders. The very same Martin who ran over and killed Jamie Mitchell, a fact he seemed to have to­tally for­got­ten about un­til the other week.

And isn’t it strange how he wasn’t so both­ered when his wife Stacey had a fling with his friend Kush and lied to him about baby Arthur’s pa­ter­nity?

Coro­na­tion Street’s Gail McIn­tyre has barely been able to look Leanne Bat­tersby in the eye since learn­ing that Steve McDon­ald, and not her pre­cious son Nick, is the fa­ther of baby Oliver. At least she didn’t marry a se­rial killer and in­tro­duce him to her chil­dren, eh Gail? Or have a fling with her mother’s con­man lover.

But Em­merdale’s Chas Din­gle is the worst. She’s not been off Robert Sug­den’s case since he con­fessed to cheat­ing on her son Aaron. It was a ter­ri­ble thing to do, but not quite as bad as hav­ing an af­fair with your preg­nant niece’s boyfriend.
