Christ­mas dis­as­ters we ea­gerly await are loom­ing. Cor­rie’s Sally looks as if she’ll be hav­ing her first taste of prison turkey, and it’s not be­yond the realms of pos­si­bil­ity she’ll be shar­ing a wing (ac­com­mo­da­tion and poul­try-wise) with Emmerdale’s Deb­bie. Over in Wal­ford, EastEnders’ Al­fie is in­tent on de­liv­er­ing the per­fect Slater Christ­mas (which can mean only one thing – Ar­maged­don). His great idea is del­e­ga­tion of du­ties and finding a so­lu­tion to over­crowd­ing in the Slater house­hold (he’s only just no­ticed? The place is a Tardis).

The Vic’s grotto is some­thing to look for­ward to, al­though how it’s go­ing to dis­tin­guish it­self from the grot­ti­ness of the place on a daily ba­sis is any­body’s guess. It looks like be­ing a grotty time for Emmerdale’s Bob, when, a week be­fore Christ­mas, the twins ask for ex­pen­sive gifts and he has to pon­der tak­ing a job as an elf. Given that you can count the good­ies the pair have ever had on one hand, they should be grate­ful for a tan­ger­ine in a sock; as for Bob dress­ing up – well, the way this show in­vents ever more in­ge­nious ways to force guys to get their kit off is, truly, ge­nius. No com­plaints here.
