Before I start this week’s update, I need to apologise as there’ll be no update next week. I’m off on my jollies. Also, long-time update readers (with a very long memory) will know it’s my birthday next weekend and this year it’s a very special birthday indeed. Yes, I’m 21 again. Plus VAT and add a little bit for luck and it all comes out at a very round number that starts with a 5 and ends with an 0. Or an Uh-oh. So I won’t be here next week as I’ll be singing in the Austrian hills. Yes, really. And now without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.

Jenna left this week, after two years on the Street, when Andrea moved in with Lloyd, after two minutes on the Street. To my mind, Lloyd is ill-suited to Andrea. He needs someone groovy, a Northern Soul fan, someone he can dance with, not be dragged around Lidl with on his days off from work.

Ken, back from Canada as a non-meat-eating, maple-syrup-toting new man, takes on the task of getting Peter out of prison. He’s determined to get Peter free and sets about with a new solicitor and a staunch approach. In the big house, Peter’s cracking up, stealing sweets from under the mattress of his cell-mate to give to Big Jim in exchange for a bottle of dodgy looking booze.

Kirk makes a rubbish proposal to Beth this week. And when I mean a rubbish proposal, I mean it really was rubbish when Beth unknowingly threw her engagement ring into the rubbish bin on the street and Kirk had to rescue it, get down on one knee and propose. Beth, she said yes and the two of them snogged on the Street. I’ve been waiting a long time for these two to get married, they’re perfect for one another. But there was someone Kirk had to ask first before he popped the question to Beth, and that was young Craig, who gave it his seal of approval. “I think it’s mint!”

Over at the builders’ yard, Todd buys cheap building materials for Gary to work with in Tyrone’s loft.  The chipboard he’s using for the floor is too thin, and Gary knows it’s illegal and wrong. Todd tells him to keep quiet otherwise he’ll lose his job. Gary, desperate for money, keeps schtum. For now.

Tracy’s not happy when she finds out that Rob’s agreed for Michelle to be their wedding organiser, and at a cost too. “You mean to tell me that we are paying my ex-husband’s girlfriend to plan our wedding?” she asks MurdeRob. Oh yes, indeed you are, Tracy-luv.

Gail goes on a date with Michael this week although she tells anyone who’ll listen that it’s Not. A. Date. Except it is and although Michael accidentally runs Gail down in his ice-cream van, the two of them snog on the sofa after crying over watching a soppy movie. Gail announces to her family that she and Michael are now seeing each other, adding another pile of worry onto Nick’s already full head. He fakes a seizure in the café when the pressure of losing Leanne to Kal gets too much for him to take.  David knows what his big brother’s up to, however.

At Roy’s Rolls, Yasmeen organises a reading group for children in the library section of the caff. There’s only one problem, she hasn’t told Roy. When he finds out what’s going on he isn’t best pleased. And on such things, the world of soap turns.

And finally this week, Ken plans a holiday for him and Deirdre. She clearly doesn’t get a say in where they go, she wants somewhere warm and sunny. “Morocco?” suggest Rob. “Oh! Don’t mention Morocco to Ken!” she replies. “Since I married Samir, he won’t eat cous cous and refuses to have dates in the house at Christmas.”  A caravan trip to North Wales is planned and off they go. When that van is rocking, don’t go a-knocking - it’ll be Deirdre preparing stuffed marrow.

And that’s just about that for this week.
