The pressure proves too much for Sarah

Carla has a change of heart

Coronation Street preview (what's happening this week)

Last week's Coronation Street episodes

Monday 17th August (episode 1)

Sarah confronts Bethany when she gets back from Paris and tells her she knows all about her drug dealing, but when Bethany finds Callum and demands to know why he dobbed her in it, Callum manages to smooth talk his way out of trouble. In the Rovers Callum reminds Sarah that she should keep her mouth shut about the gun or her family will get it - starting with Bethany. At breaking point Sarah unburdens herself to David, Kylie and Gail and Gail insists they phone the police. Is it time for Callum to get his just desserts?

Jason watches with concern as Callum speaks to Sarah in the Rovers and notices how shaken up Sarah seems from the conversation. Later, Jason warns Callum to stay away from Bethany and Sarah, before tipping a pint in Callum’s lap. Has Jason opened up a can of worms?

Beth, Kirk, Craig, Chesney, Sinead, Tyrone and Fiz all arrive at the campsite in Wales. When Tyrone struggles with the tent they recruit the help of a fellow camper, Dougie. Craig goes wandering and bumps into a girl who is busy with a sketchbook. Has Craig found a camping companion, or will she give him short shrift?

Ambitious Alya tells Carla she intends to buy the factory and wants to prove herself. She takes on the meeting with Mr Hanlon and tells him that she’s keen to impress.


Monday 17th August (episode 2)

David and Kylie are overjoyed as they watch Callum being bundled into a police car, pleased that they finally seem to have the upper hand. But when they realise that he’s two steps ahead and has had time to brainwash Max into saying that the gun was just a toy, Kylie is furious and blames Sarah for keeping quiet for so long.

When Dougie brings his daughter Caitlin to join the campers for their barbeque, Craig realises she’s the girl with the sketchbook. He’s smitten when she offers to show him some more of her drawings. Dougie suggests they all spend 24 hours outdoors and Tyrone rises to the challenge but Fiz is dubious and is worried about Hope, who appears to be out of sorts.

Having been released without charge, a bitter Callum spitefully tells Bethany that she’s just a stupid little girl who he has no further use for. Turning to Jason for comfort Bethany tells him how Callum forced her to deliver drugs for him. When Jason later finds Callum trying to intimidate Sarah he runs to her defence - but is he enough of a deterrent for steely Callum?

Mr Hanlon is impressed with Alya and signs the contract, much to her and Carla’s delight.

Wednesday 19th August

David refuses to let Callum see Max when Callum turns up expecting to take Max out for the day. Sensing trouble again, a fiery Jason runs over and sends Callum packing. Refusing to be pushed around by Jason, Callum gets two of his mates to drag Jason into the ginnel and follows them closely behind - intent on showing Jason who’s boss. But when Max spies his dad out of the window, he sneaks out of the house to go and speak to him...but how much of his dad’s behaviour is Max about to see, and what state will Jason be left in?

Alya is pleased when she manages to convince her grandparents to support her financially in her bid to buy the factory. Carla promises to consider her offer, but Sally is fuming to discover she has some fierce competition...

Craig is secretly delighted when Caitlin announces she’s going to stay at camp instead of spending 24 hours in the wild with Dougie, Chesney, Sinead and Tyrone. Kirk and Beth go skinny dipping but Beth cries out in pain as she’s stung by a wasp. Back at the camp, Fiz notes there’s some chemistry between Craig and Caitlin and sets off on a walk to give them some time on their own. Is there romance in the air?

When Carla announces that she’s intending to leave for LA next week, Nick’s disappointment doesn’t go unnoticed by Erica.

Thursday 20th August

Tony is bemused when he sees Callum’s heavies leaving the ginnel. Kylie and David are concerned as to where Max has been when he returns home clearly upset: what has he seen and will he be brave enough to tell his mum? Meanwhile Sarah finds an unconscious Jason in the ginnel and phones for an ambulance as his family gather round, horrified at the extent of his injuries. Knowing exactly who was behind the attack, can the Platts formulate a plan to put a stop to Callum’s ways once and for all?

Desperate for Carla to stay in Weatherfield, he begs her to reconsider her decision to move away. Pulling out all the stops he finally confesses that he wishes he were with her and not Erica. How will Carla respond, and will it be enough to make her stay?

Dougie’s presence is starting to irritate camp members as he shows off his fire-fighting and foraging skills. When Fiz tells Craig that it’s obvious he really likes Caitlin and that he shouldn’t waste any time in making a move, he gets embarrassed. Will Craig tell his campmate how he feels? When he later receives a text message confirming he’s passed all of his GCSEs, the camp come together to celebrate.

Friday 21st August (episode 1)

Eileen is beside herself when the doctors tell her that Jason might never walk or talk again and that the next 24 hours are critical. When the police question Todd about Jason’s assault, he is deeply hurt when he realises none of his family bothered to contact him with the news. Knowing he has to visit, Todd turns up at the hospital but as he approaches he overhears Eileen telling Tony how Jason has always been the better son.

Nick’s full of love for Carla after spending the night with her but she reminds him that she’s still moving to LA and that he’s still with Erica. But when Erica tells Nick she knows who really has his heart, will she be able to let him go or can they still make a go of it? And when Carla’s old friend Aidan tips up in Weatherfield wanting to invest in the factory, how will Carla react when she finds out Nick was the one who prompted him?

Caitlin is impressed when Craig tells her that he got an ‘A’ in his GCSE Art exam and she begins to do a sketch of him. When Beth comes out in a rash and Hope still not herself, Dougie suggests they head to the nearest hospital. Beth is relieved to hear that the rash is just an allergy, but Fiz and Tyrone are worried when the nurse insists that Hope needs to see a doctor right away.

Kylie and David are perplexed when they find all of the toys that Callum bought for Max in the bin, but when they try to ask Max about it he clams up and refuses to speak. Later when Callum approaches them on the Street, Max freaks out and begs his mum to keep Callum away. How will Callum react, and will Kylie work out what’s happened?

Friday 21st August (episode 2)

Carla pours her heart out to Roy and Roy makes her see that her problems will follow her wherever she runs to and that she needs to face up to them. Knowing he’s right, Carla announces to Nick, Aidan, Sally and Alya that she’s staying put in Weatherfield and will no longer be selling. But when Aidan tells Carla he reckons him and her can still do a deal, will she agree to go into business with him?

David plays with Max in the garden and tries to coax him into telling him why he’s suddenly so scared of Callum but Max refuses to talk about it. But when Max later asks Kylie if Jason is going to die, he breaks down and tells her that he saw Callum kicking Jason in the ginnel. Is this the evidence Kylie and David need to finally rumble Callum?

The mood in camp is deflated when Fiz and Tyrone return from the hospital and tell Beth, Kirk and Sinead that Hope is suffering from anaemia. When Craig tells Caitlin she should follow her dreams during a heart a heart, Caitlin kisses him and Craig is on cloud nine. But when Dougie finds them snogging under a tree how will he react, and will Craig’s family have the same reaction?

Tony feels he’s to blame for failing to protect Jason and tells Sarah that he wants the lowlife who put Jason in hospital dead. Will Sarah tell him what she knows?
