Corrie’s William Flanagan is the absolute spit of his sister Amelia when she was first cast in the Dales. Such a pretty family!
…if only she’d been equally picky nine months ago!
Carmel lying to Keegan that he’d killed a boy was some dark stuff. Too dark for us. ‘Tough love’ doesn’t begin to cover it.
