The Rovers was sold from under Liz’s nose and behind her back this week. Tony’s bought Steve’s share of the pub in the name of Travis Ltd. He puts the frighteners on Liz when he brings in a couple of heavies to throw their weight around with Liz. She’s now thinking of going off to Spain which is just what Tony wants. Tracy can’t wait to get her hands on his pumps.

Billy comes clean to the Bishop this week and Sean stays over at the vicarage. I do hope these two get together full time, have a wedding and live happily ever after.

Eileen’s got a smile on her face this week after Adrian stays the night. Jeff from Dubai (aka Todd) is still messaging her and she still hasn’t deleted her online dating profile. Is it just me or is there something slightly sick about Todd pretending to be his mother’s online fancy bit of stuff?

Faye continues to struggle to look after baby Miley. Tim’s called in for babysitting duties and when he finds out that Faye wants to go on a school trip, he sends her off and looks after Miley. Anna’s livid when she finds out that Tim’s undermined her and storms off to school with the baby to give Faye a dressing down in the school yard. Faye’s mates are embarrassed by the goings on, but it does bring Jackson to his senses. The baby’s dad and her grandma call round to see Anna and Faye to tell them Jackson has admitted he’s Miley’s dad and they want his name on the birth certificate. Anna has been so nasty to Faye this week over looking after the baby. “You of all people,” Anna screamed at her, “telling that baby she’s not wanted. It’s history repeating itself.” I did a sharp intake of breath.

Tim has been wonderful this week, loving his little granddaughter and taking more interest in her than he ever did his own daughter. Sally’s not best pleased with him though. She plans a romantic dinner for two for him but when he comes home he brings with him Anna, Faye and the baby. Sally’s dreams of a romantic night in are quashed yet again. Tim and Sally work so well together, they’re one of Corrie’s joys right now.

Erica takes Liz on a pamper session to Audrey’s salon. In a lovely scene, Liz, Erica and Audrey bond over gossip about men and hair rollers. Ken comes into the Rovers later to tell Liz she looked like a Manet painting. Just one of the many reasons I love Corrie.

In other news this week, Yasmeen and Zeedan reappeared after weeks how knows where. Tony sacks Zeedan which made Leanne so angry so stormed round to Barlow’s Bookies to chuck things about. Once a Battersby, always a Battersby and more the better for it. It’s about time we saw that side of her again. Yasmeen, meanwhile, led the book group in the community centre with a reading of Katie Price’s book.

Elsewhere this week, much confusion was had over the bin day dilemma – was it blue or green bins? And Weatherfield County sacked their manager, McGiligan. Well, he wore wellies on the touchline. He should have known better.

And that’s just about that for this week.

Norman Bates with a Briefcase - the Richard Hillman Story

With a foreword by Coronation Street actor Brian Capron, who played Richard Hillman

From his first appearance at Alma’s funeral, Richard Hillman was destined to be one of the most enigmatic, loving family men ever to have walked on Coronation Street. But he was also one of the most dangerous. Three people died in the short time Richard Hillman walked the cobbles. And four more would have perished in the canal when he tried to kill his family by driving them into the murky depths.

Richard Hillman’s soap story is one of family, love, death, a canal and a crowbar.

Written by a fan for the fans, this book presents the story of Richard Hillman in one continuous account, giving you the chance to relive the Platt family ups, downs and a drive into the canal.

If you love Coronation Street, you will love Norman Bates with a Briefcase, the Richard Hillman story.
