KIRK GETS Se­ri­ous Sally left reel­ing as wise­crack­ing

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

THIS is the hi­lar­i­ous scene as Kirk Suther­land’s bid to be mayor of Weather­field takes off. Hap­less Kirk re­cently won a com­pe­ti­tion to be­come Weather­field County’s new foot­ball mas­cot – Buzzy Bee.

But the sight of him in his cos­tume at a po­lit­i­cal meet­ing leaves Coun­cil­lor Sally Met­calfe reel­ing in dis­be­lief.

Kirk, a life-long County fan, was de­lighted when a re­porter jok­ingly sug­gested he run against Sally for the town’s top role.

Dur­ing Fri­day night’s episode, view­ers will see Yameen Nazir host­ing a may­oral cam­paign evening in the café.

Sally rel­ishes the op­por­tu­nity of show­ing up Kirk who has won the back­ing of her sis­ter Gina.

But while Sally dis­cusses the se­ri­ous is­sues she wants to work on if elected, Kirk chooses to tell jokes and talks about pup­pies. And the crowd love him. The evening leaves Sally feel­ing dis­ap­pointed, lead­ing her hus­band Tim to have a go at Gina for sup­port­ing Kirk.

A Cor­rie in­sider said: “Sally’s cam­paign to be­come a coun­cil­lor pro­duced some clas­sic Cor­rie scenes and the race to be mayor will be no dif­fer­ent.

“This time you’ve got Kirk dressed in his furry bee cos­tume win­ning over the lo­cals with his jokes and sto­ries about cute pup­pies, while Sally is des­per­ate to fo­cus on lo­cal is­sues.

“It starts to look as if Kirk could pull off a shock at the polls.

“Sally can’t be­lieve it. Tim is fu­ri­ous with Gina’s med­dling and tells her ex­actly what he thinks of her. Whether this helps or makes things worse re­mains to be seen.”

Tune in to the ITV soap on Fri­day to watch all the drama as Sally and Kirk go head-to-head.
