Coronation Street


It's a dramatic week for the Platts and Barlows

Steve faces a testing time

Mary tinkers with the truth

Coronation Street catch up (what happened last week)

This week's Coronation Street episodes

It's a catastrophic week on the cobbles as fractured families are forced to pull together in five explosive episodes.

David’s Revenge - After the death of his wife Kylie, David is dealt another agonising blow when he hears Clayton may not get the justice he deserves. Determined to take matters into his own hands David’s plan is devastating and disturbing; he intends on driving his car, laden with petrol, to blow up Clayton. But when Gail discovers a farewell video he’s made for the kids, it becomes clear that his revenge plot to kill his enemy is also a suicide mission.

Enlisting Nick and Sarah's help, a panic-stricken Gail sets about imprisoning David in the Bistro cellar. It’s a heartbreaking decision for a mother to make and the Platts despair as they try to pull David back from the brink. However, at the final moment a distressed David outwits Gail and makes a bid for freedom - is it too late for him to push his dark fantasy into reality? What happens next in Weatherfield will have far reaching consequences for more than just the Platts.

Peter’s Return - When Peter Barlow makes a shock return to the street he’s not met with the warmest of welcomes. Peter’s story is he’s lost his job, but with a cut to his face and his nighttime disappearances it soon becomes clear that there’s more to his sudden re-appearance than he’s letting on. Ken’s suspicious of the secrets Peter is hiding and when he tackles him in the early hours, no one can predict the consequences. Shockwaves ripple through the Barlow household as the impact of Peter’s return looks set to have lasting effects on the family.
