Leanne’s past is dragged up and spat out to Kal’s family as they find out about her prostitution, lap dancing, stripping, cocaine and arson. “That’s your CV, is it not?” asks Kal’s mum. Well, she is Les Battersby’s daughter, is she not? Let’s never forget that Leanne will never be any better than she oughta.

Over at the factory, Carla tells Peter she wants him out of her life and out of her business. He’s moping around feeling sorry for himself in between bouts of drinking. Then Rob spots Tracy wearing the bracelet that Eccles found in the backyard at the Barlows. He comes out in a cold sweat, more so when Steph in the Bistro challenges Tracy as to why she’s wearing her stolen bracelet. Next thing you know, the cops are crawling all over the cobbles in the Case of the Missing Charm Bracelet. They deduce that whoever stole the bracelet must be the same person who killed Tina McIntyre. Fortunately for Rob, Deirdre cleaned the bracelet and his fingerprints aren’t on it. Unfortunately for Peter, his are.

Over at the Bistro, Nick tells Leanne he wants her out of his life and out of his business. He changes the name of the Bistro to “Just Nick’s” although Leanne probably feels it should read “Unjust Nick’s” instead.

Izzy and Gary split up this week which left me in despair, wearing a black armband. I love these two together, I really do. Gary’s had his head turned by Alya who has been in every scene, in every storyline, since she appeared on the cobbles last week. I hope they’re not going to force this one on us like they did with St Ella.

Marcus and Todd also split up this week after Marcus finally sees how nasty Todd is. Todd hooks up with another bloke and Marcus loses his cool when he spots them snogging on the Street. Marcus finally shows some gumption (I love that word) and grabs Todd by the collar, pushes him up against the wall and threatens to smash his face in. Oh, if only he had. Todd’s had enough and tells everyone he’s leaving.

Gail gets Michael Marlon (“It’s after Brando”) Rodwell his job back at Streetcars although he doesn’t start too well. “Good morning, Streetcabs!” he chirps on the switch. Eileen fills him in on biscuit etiquette in the cab office while Gail fills him in on her history with Eileen, and men. “I think it’s fair to say I’ve had a complicated history with men,” she tells Michael. Yes, Gail, it’s fair to say. The two of them get friendly while David and Kylie are away in Barbados with little Max. Michael gives Gail a plant with his thanks for getting him a job, it’s a dianthus dainty dame in a pot. Gail takes it up to bed with her. I think her complicated history with men is about to start again.

And that’s just about that for this week.
