Billy’s on the rob! Corrie
For a good Billy thinks he’s stealing money pocket! cause, But he has picked the wrong
Story So far
Vicar Billy Mayhew tries to live by The Bible’s Ten Commandments. It’s not just his job – to Billy it’s a way of life.
He became his partner tricky Todd Grimshaw’s moral compass and now that they’re guardians of Billy’s goddaughter, Summer Spellman, he’s trying to make them into a happy family.
With all that on his plate, you wouldn’t think Billy would go looking for trouble, would you? But he does…
Billy breaks one of those Ten Commandments when he decides to play Robin Hood!
‘Billy knows the factory machinists are struggling and he tells Todd he thinks Adam Barlow should help them out as it’s his fault they’re out of work,’ our Corrie insider tells us. ‘But Adam doesn’t agree.’

Still, stealing is sinning – and it’s against the law, as horrified Todd points out when he hears what Billy has done… And it wasn’t even Adam’s money! Billy’s shocked when Todd says the cash was Shona Ramsey’s scratchcard win. Whoops! Now what’s Billy going to do? It sounds as though Billy buckles under the pressure of his crime – and the responsibility of taking care of Summer…

We suspect that other family is the Barlows as Summer’s attempt to fit in at school (see page 33) goes badly wrong and Billy attacks Peter! So, violence and theft!
