It’s Rita’s birthday and she spends it without husband Dennis who ran off with Gloria last week. But she does have Norris and her mates and makes the most of it in the Rovers with a vodka and tonic. “Are you all right?” Liz asks her when she hands over her drink. Rita manages a faint smile and raises her glass. “I will be,” she replies.
Determined to shake off Phelan’s feely hands, what does Anna go and do? Does she embarrass him publicly? No. Does she tell Owen so he can tell Phelan to back off? No. She texts Phelan and invites him round to her house for a private chat. Of course he gets the wrong idea and of course she shouldn’t have done it. It’s too much for Anna, as Phelan pins her against the wall and tries to kiss her before threatening her. Anna tells Izzy what’s happened and Izzy spills the beans to Gary – who gets angry, very angry. You won’t like him when he’s angry.
Gary waits until he finds Phelan on his own at the building site later and whops him over the head with a two-by-four, leaving him for dead, unconscious on the ground. Gary’s in a state and calls Owen to tell him what he’s gone and done but when the two of them go back to where Phelan lay fallen, he’s not there any more, he’s gone. It’s a state of affairs that worries Gary and Owen somewhat, it’s far to say. The Windass/Armstrong clan (Windrong? Armstrass?) have another scare this week when baby Jake gets a temperature and has to be rushed to hospital. Fortunately it’s just a virus and the baby’s ok.
At Roy’s Rolls another brown paper package (not tied up with string) arrives for Roy. It’s yet another parcel that Hayley had ordered for Roy, to be delivered after her death, and what a lovely reminder of Hayley it is. The packages perk Roy up and he reveals to his curious customers that the parcels contain models for his model railway that he’s building, a reconstruction of the line that ran from Sheffield to Manchester, the very line where he first developed his love of trains.
Eileen’s got a lot on her plate this week. She knows that Todd slept with Marcus and spends the week berating her wayward son for trying to break up Marcus and Maria. Frankly, I wish he would. Marcus and Maria together are dull, dull, dull. Then Eileen’s jealous after she spots Liz eyeing up Jason’s dad Tony in the pub. And then she’s having to console Jason who’s been told by Dev and Kal that he’s not getting the contract for building the new gym. Kal’s dad Sharif has turned up and given the work to a family friend instead. So in this maelstrom of maleness, Eileen stands alone as the female voice of reason with a biscuit and a cuppa by her side.
Finally this week, Beth and Sinead spend their day off work together. The ladies lunch in the Bistro and play bingo at night. When they come out of the bingo and wait for the bus, a young lad tries to mug a pensioner who’s standing beside them in the queue. Beth hits the mugger over the head with her boot, which is in her hand at the time as she was massaging her blister, and she’s hailed a heroine by Kirkeh when she gets home.
And that's just about that for this week. Remember, you can sign up to
