Coronation Street on ITV Part Four

Because part three is almost full.

by Annie Walkerreply 55414 hours ago

I hope when the show returns after its “break” we find out that Sean and Izzy died from coronavirus.

by Annie Walkerreply 103/27/2020

But Mary survives!

by Annie Walkerreply 203/28/2020

Yeah, I’d want Mary to survive. I like her when the writing doesn’t make her out to be a moron.

by Annie Walkerreply 303/28/2020

The actors who play Abi and Tim have got engaged while in lockdown.

by Annie Walkerreply 403/28/2020

Good for them, they’re a cute couple.

by Annie Walkerreply 503/28/2020

I'm appreciating Corrie more now that there are only three episodes per week.

by Annie Walkerreply 604/04/2020

needs more Billy and Paul

by Annie Walkerreply 704/04/2020

Uhh, no, it doesn’t.

by Annie Walkerreply 804/04/2020

Uhh, no, it doesn’t.

by Annie Walkerreply 904/04/2020

Billy and Paul do nothing for me. The former is an annoying nosy parker, and the latter has that totally distracting smashed nose.

by Annie Walkerreply 1004/04/2020

Precisely, R10. That nose is hideous beyond belief. They’re both annoying as hell.

by Annie Walkerreply 1104/04/2020

I cried over Eccles, yet none of her family (except for Emma) did. Have they no souls?

by Annie Walkerreply 1204/08/2020

Does anybody remember that fucking ridiculous twist where they found out Betty actually owned The Rovers after she died?

by Annie Walkerreply 1304/08/2020

I think I'd stopped watching Corrie during that period, R13.

by Annie Walkerreply 1404/08/2020

Dang Corrie, the last thing I needed during this quarantine was the death of Eccles.

by Annie Walkerreply 1504/08/2020

They made Ken unnecessarily brusque with Emma. Of course it wasn’t her fault that Eccles had to be put down.

by Annie Walkerreply 1604/09/2020

Poor Emma is getting shit on by everyone.

by Annie Walkerreply 1704/09/2020

I really hope they apologize to her in the upcoming episodes. If Ken wants to blame someone, it should be Claudia.

by Annie Walkerreply 1804/09/2020

Emma is sweet but she would get on my nerves after an extended period of time.

What do we think of the retirement home segments?

by Annie Walkerreply 1904/09/2020

I can’t stand them, R19. I fast forward through them now although I’ve always liked the actor who played Norris.

by Annie Walkerreply 2004/09/2020

Is it wrong that I kind of hope Covid-19 attacks that retirement home and kills everyone except Ken and Norris.

by Annie Walkerreply 2104/09/2020

Is that tart Claudia going to cheat with Charles? It made no sense that someone as vivacious as she would want to settle down in a retirement village.

by Annie Walkerreply 2204/09/2020

Again, I ask, has Norris mentioned Emily? She was living with Norris and Freida in Scotland, did they just dump her off the side of the road?

by Annie Walkerreply 2304/09/2020

Emily’s got that nephew of hers she stays with. The fugly tree hugger who dated Toyah.

by Annie Walkerreply 2404/09/2020

R24 Only if she has returned to Peru, that is where Spider is.

by Annie Walkerreply 2504/09/2020

Spider could have moved back to London, though, where he lived with Toyah.

by Annie Walkerreply 2604/09/2020

I loved Tracy's line tonight when Steve said he just wants a quiet life. And she said "you picked the wrong women for that," meaning she and Leanne.

by Annie Walkerreply 2704/10/2020

Jeff gives Yasmin chlamydia.

by Annie Walkerreply 2804/20/2020

She stabs him next week, hope its painful x

by Annie Walkerreply 2904/20/2020

Will he be in the hospital and have to listen to somebody else doing the DJ-ing? Will Audrey do it again?

by Annie Walkerreply 3004/20/2020

The girl who plays Asha is great but the girl who plays Amy is giving a high school drama class performance. They really need to finally get rid of her.

by Annie Walkerreply 3104/24/2020

R31 She isn't the worst I've seen, plus you can really imagine her being the daughter of Tracy and Steve.

by Annie Walkerreply 3204/24/2020

Looking like them isn’t enough-she makes annoying faces and fake gesticulates all the time.

by Annie Walkerreply 3304/24/2020

R33 It's not just looks. While I love Tracy, the actor that plays Steve isn't wonderful and does those annoying faces and things all the time.

by Annie Walkerreply 3404/24/2020

[quote] She stabs him next week, hope its painful x

Isn't it a wine bottle to the head?

by Annie Walkerreply 3504/24/2020

R35 I'd prefer if she had stuck a broken jagged wine bottle up his ass and twisted it several times.

by Annie Walkerreply 3604/24/2020

As much as I hate Geoff, the scene where he asked for a refund because he caught an STI off a prostitute was quite funny.

The writers are doing a decent job with Asha's story.

by Annie Walkerreply 3704/27/2020

Imagine gave to have sex with Geoff! Is this what he's spending Yasmeen's pension on?

by Annie Walkerreply 3804/27/2020

I HATE, HATE, HATE Geoff! I honestly don't think I've ever felt this way about a character before. There has been other fictional characters that I loved to hate, but Geoff is different, I just totally hate him. When he pops up on the screen, I want to physically reach through it and strangle him.

by Annie Walkerreply 3904/27/2020

Geoff’s response to being confronted with the STI news was particularly repugnant. And really badly written.

by Annie Walkerreply 4004/27/2020

What did he say?

by Annie Walkerreply 4104/28/2020

He accused Yasmeen of giving him the STI and called her an old tart, R41

by Annie Walkerreply 4204/28/2020

Thanks R42 I hope he is shunned by everyone and loses everything he's stolen from Yasmeen. How come she hasn't found his camera?

by Annie Walkerreply 4304/28/2020

R29 Oh, a stabbing it is after all! .. First the wine bottle to the head, then a shard from the glass bottle into his neck! .. But apparently not up his ass, R36.

by Annie Walkerreply 4405/01/2020

Pity he doesn't die. How's Gail?

by Annie Walkerreply 4505/01/2020

R45 The only reason I wouldn't want him to die, is I don't want to see Yasmeen go to jail for murder.

by Annie Walkerreply 4605/01/2020

I think the police will discover the hidden camera and the videos on Geoff's phone and laptop. It'll be diminished responsibility manslaughter.

by Annie Walkerreply 4705/01/2020

R47 I agree, the camera has never been brought up yet. I don't think he will die though.

by Annie Walkerreply 4805/03/2020

Britbox US has been asleep at the switch. Tonite is the second time in a row that the day's episode wasn't available to stream.

by Annie Walkerreply 4905/06/2020

Oh gawd. I was PISSED when the Yasmeen/Geoff aftermath didn’t appear until yesterday.

by Annie Walkerreply 5005/06/2020

When will they find the camera?!

by Annie Walkerreply 5105/07/2020

If-when filming picks up, the virus will exist Weatherfield.

by Annie Walkerreply 5205/07/2020

They'll have to show PC Craig Tinker's old OCD flaring up again with all that hand-washing!

by Annie Walkerreply 5305/07/2020

Roy's Rollz will be strictly takeaway!

by Annie Walkerreply 5405/07/2020

And that old slapper Leanne will be offering curb side pick up!

by Annie Walkerreply 5505/07/2020

That's going to be confusing, R52, because the timeline is all over the place. I wonder how they'll handle it.

by Annie Walkerreply 5605/07/2020

This is a companion article at Digital Spy discussing some potential changes.

Here's a thought. If there's going to be less intimacy such as kissing and touching, etc., then maybe they could replace it with more gratuitous shirtlessness and walking around in underwear. .. Also, the one about enlisting production staff to also serve as extras in background scenes instead of hiring outside actors is a novel one.

by Annie Walkerreply 5705/07/2020

Better keep Ken secluded, given his age.

by Annie Walkerreply 5805/07/2020

Are they going to kill anyone off from it?

1. SEAN 2. IZZY 3. CHESNEY 4.FIZ 5. DAVID

by Annie Walkerreply 5905/08/2020

Billy and Paul just don't work as a couple, IMO.

by Annie Walkerreply 6005/08/2020

R60 Billy doesn't work as a Vicar, either, but his poor congregation is stuck with him. In my mind he is the reason Emily never returned to Weatherfield. She loves church but doesn't want to be stuck going to his church.

by Annie Walkerreply 6105/08/2020

Haha, R61, the only thing she’s snobbish about!

by Annie Walkerreply 6205/08/2020

R60 No, they don't. Then, there's annoying Sean, and the average actor who plays the Bailey kid.

They may have gay inclusion, but I'm not interested in any of it.

by Annie Walkerreply 6305/08/2020

I finally got the point of Nina. She’s been lovely in this week’s episodes.

Good god, the girl playing Asha grows more and more beautiful with every passing episode. And her acting is wonderful, too.

by Annie Walkerreply 6405/08/2020

R64 She is alot better looking than the actor who plays Dev or the actress that played her mother.

by Annie Walkerreply 6505/08/2020

Why did they replace the boy who played Adi?

by Annie Walkerreply 6605/09/2020

The official reason was he wanted to focus on his GCSE exams but I think the real reason was he was fugly and couldn’t act for shit.

by Annie Walkerreply 6705/09/2020

I need reminding-so Gail never found out the truth about Callum’s murder? I gather Gary will expose Sarah as an accomplice when Adam gets too close to finding out the truth about Gary and Kelly’s dad.

by Annie Walkerreply 6805/09/2020

Wow.

by Annie Walkerreply 6905/09/2020

Craig looks good!

News just in, filming on a adult episode has just finished, respecting all social-distancing rules. Here's Gail..

by Annie Walkerreply 7005/09/2020

Dear god, I had to put that on ignore.

by Annie Walkerreply 7105/09/2020

Oh, lordy, R70...did you really have to do that?

by Annie Walkerreply 7205/09/2020

I'm sorry darlings, I didn't mean to destroy your eyes. FYI Gail is my third favourite character after Carla and Ken.

Please watch Gail from 1:00 in this video. Pissed at Christmas, boasting about how many times she's been married!

Funny, that also describes the father, Dev.

by Annie Walkerreply 7405/09/2020

R74 cool

by Annie Walkerreply 7505/10/2020

The guy playing Dev has done shockingly bad work over the years but he was surprisingly moving last fall during Asha’s skin lightening storyline.

by Annie Walkerreply 7605/10/2020

Dev and Steve are both played by atrocious actors.

by Annie Walkerreply 7705/10/2020

I want to see more of Carla and Peter.

by Annie Walkerreply 7805/12/2020

R78 Carla and Peter have a big storyline coming up in June. It's related to last year when she was having a breakdown.

by Annie Walkerreply 7905/12/2020

I think they’re bringing on someone who Carla interacted with when she was undergoing treatment.

by Annie Walkerreply 8005/12/2020

They are bringing in several people, and it's before she was in treatment and was missing. I hope she wasn't raped, it's meant to be a dark storyline.

"What Peter discovers is a hard thing to swallow but ultimately he will be all the more proud of her and love her all the more. But they have a rocky road ahead."

Offsite Link
by Annie Walkerreply 8105/12/2020

The soaps have apparently been given the green light to proceed with production but I think it will take at least a month for them to prepare. And I’m guessing there will be more than a few actors who will feel skittish about returning when the amount of new cases and deaths are nowhere near low enough yet.

by Annie Walkerreply 8205/12/2020

OMG @ David crossing out "Mother" and writing "Gail" in the card 😂

by Annie Walkerreply 8305/13/2020

Gail should have had him aborted when she had the chance.

by Annie Walkerreply 8405/13/2020

Which couple do you think has the best sex life?

by Annie Walkerreply 8505/14/2020

David’s scene with Gail really was good.

by Annie Walkerreply 8605/14/2020

What happened in the scene?

by Annie Walkerreply 8705/14/2020

Nothing, really. Just Gail moping that he wasn’t at her birthday “soiree.” And as she heads upstairs David says “Gail? Happy birthday.” Gail just smiles and goes upstairs.

by Annie Walkerreply 8805/14/2020

R88 Agreed, "nothing" really happened but it was at the same time perfect. Gail, David, and Audrey have the easiest and most natural family chemistry of any "relatives" on the show. I can really imagine them as a real family.

by Annie Walkerreply 8905/14/2020

R89, I also like Sarah as part of that unit. The actress looks particularly great nowadays, too.

by Annie Walkerreply 9005/14/2020

At least they have written that Craig's taken up jogging. When he nexts appears of screen as a slim, flame-haired temptress it won't be completely inexplicable.

Can we agree on a list of the top 5 characters we want to be given the chop?

- Fiz

- Sean

-Izzy

- Chesney

- Gary

by Annie Walkerreply 9105/16/2020

Not Chesney or Gary, I like their looks. I wouldn’t mind being in a ginger sandwich with them.

by Annie Walkerreply 9205/16/2020

Uggh, Gary gets more fugly by the day. I don’t mind Chesney, he’s sweet.

by Annie Walkerreply 9305/16/2020

I hope that CUNT Geoff gets boiled alive in a grease fryer at the Kebab shop

by Annie Walkerreply 9405/16/2020

They both look doughy to me.

by Annie Walkerreply 9505/16/2020

I want Adam Barlow in me, quite deeply.

by Annie Walkerreply 9605/16/2020

I want Adam and Imran to spitroast me. I bet they both have gorgeous, thick cocks

by Annie Walkerreply 9705/16/2020

Imran has such kissable lips. And a gorgeous speaking voice. He got a buzzcut during the lockdown.

by Annie Walkerreply 9805/16/2020

OK. Now I want Imran and Adam spit roasting me, quite deeply.

by Annie Walkerreply 9905/16/2020

R99 NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I loved his hair! I hate, hate, hate shaved heads.

by Annie Walkerreply 10005/16/2020

Who else suspects that this storyline will result in the discovery that Oliver's father is really Nick, and not Steve?

by Annie Walkerreply 10105/18/2020

Wasn’t Nick not living in Weatherfield when Oliver was conceived?

by Annie Walkerreply 10205/18/2020

I think he was still in town, at the time, but he and Leanne were broken up.

by Annie Walkerreply 10305/18/2020

Who has the nicest house on the street?

by Annie Walkerreply 10405/20/2020

Sally

by Annie Walkerreply 10505/20/2020

Sally's house is okay but nothing great. I like Gail's and Yasmeen's is the cleanest. Chesney's and Fiz's houses look like something Steptoe & Son

by Annie Walkerreply 10605/20/2020

R106 All of them are more modern than the others, but Gail's is always so cluttered and after Yasmeen's recent marriage, her house needs to be burned to the ground. The best house is Audrey's, but we rarely get to see it anymore, and it is on Grasmere Drive, not the Street.

by Annie Walkerreply 10705/20/2020

After Richard set fire to Audrey's House it completely changed layout and size. The original was quite modest.

by Annie Walkerreply 10805/20/2020

Am I the only one? I would really like Ken and Audrey to get together. Unlike, with Claudia and the retirement home, I could see him moving into Grasmere Drive and being happy.

by Annie Walkerreply 10905/20/2020

Imagine him having to service Audrey's weathered titz and furburger to earn his keep.

by Annie Walkerreply 11005/20/2020

I’ve got a bad feeling now that Craig will somehow get pulled into David’s antagonism of the gang and will end up dead. I think the actor playing Craig had quit and then proceeded to lose all that weight.

by Annie Walkerreply 11105/20/2020

R110 She's no older looking than him.

by Annie Walkerreply 11205/20/2020

What the hell would a grown woman like Shona see in a skinny little child like David?

by Annie Walkerreply 11305/22/2020

Why doesn't big Eileen knock through her pokey living room and front reception gallery like most of the houses. She must have the most dreary little house on the street.

by Annie Walkerreply 11405/22/2020

I think it’s time that the actor who played Todd comes back. What he did didn’t seem to me to be worthy of an eternal ban.

by Annie Walkerreply 11505/22/2020

Didn't he slip a finger up a girl's minge?

by Annie Walkerreply 11605/22/2020

R116 he grabbed her crotch but no penetration. And touched another woman’s boobs and bum. Both in a nightclub. The sort of thing women used to just slap you for, not ruin your career.

by Annie Walkerreply 11705/22/2020

Exactly, R117. They overreacted to his obviously offensive, drunken, loutish behavior. Cancel culture at its worst. He should be able to return to the show.

by Annie Walkerreply 11805/22/2020

He assaulted 4 women. Said he felt compelled to prove he wasn't like his gay character

by Annie Walkerreply 11905/22/2020

That wasn’t proven, R119. You can’t just throw that in here without proof.

by Annie Walkerreply 12005/22/2020

It was reported in the news.

by Annie Walkerreply 12105/22/2020

Regardless of what anyone thinks of his behavior, I doubt ITV legal would allow Corrie to rehire him while he's still on the Sex Offender Register.

November 2017 news reports said he would be on the register for five years, so that wouldn't end until late 2022.

by Annie Walkerreply 12205/22/2020

Apparently the lady who played his mum on the show complained to the bosses that she and the other girls wouldn't feel safe around Bruno if he were allowed to return. Allegedly she got others like Barbara Knox and Helen Worth to demand a safety ban.

by Annie Walkerreply 12305/22/2020

R123 I doubt any of them had to worry.

by Annie Walkerreply 12405/22/2020

R117, they didn't ruin his career. He ruined his own career. I liked Todd, for the record. But it was 100% Bruno Langley's own fault that he was sacked.

by Annie Walkerreply 12505/22/2020

From the report it sounded like the women didn't come forward til they met in the toilets and both had been attacked. Todd was cute but he was stick with Ventriloquist's dummy, AKA the worst Vicar in Manchester

by Annie Walkerreply 12605/22/2020

Edison's speech was just too heavy-handed. Yes, it's important to call out racism, but it was awkwardly written. The fact that the actor is quite wooden didn't help matters.

by Annie Walkerreply 12705/23/2020

Allegedly there were warning signs that Bruno Langley was going off the rails, for a couple of weeks before the incident.

From what I've heard from those in the know he would often be noticed staring at the actress who plays "Mary", making obscene gestures with his fingers and tongue. According to a set assistant, he also kept he approaching the "Audrey" actress with requests like "Can you fit me in for a cheeky blow at the salon?" Confused, she said no. "Why, are you a bit too tight in there?"

The real warning alarm should have gone off when a cleaner found Helen Worth's topless pics in his dressing room, covered in sticky gunk.!

His surveillance of her, I would assume.

I don't mind Leanne when she's paired up with interesting characters, neither of whom are Steve or Nick. And I don't care about the Oliver storyline.

Looking forward to Carla's upcoming storyline.

by Annie Walkerreply 13506/06/2020

It would be really easy to explain that at the factory Fiz, Sean, Izzy caught and spread then died from coronavirus. Fiz passed it to Tyrone and Chesney. Tyrone survived but Chesney succumbs.

Sean kills off big whale Eileen and Izzy ends ginger whinger Gary.

by Annie Walkerreply 13606/06/2020

God, R136 , why not just recast the whole show? Sheesh.

by Annie Walkerreply 13706/06/2020

Because R137 I like or at least don't mind the other cast. Those named in my post are the ones who either lack talent or charisma.

by Annie Walkerreply 13806/06/2020

R137, on various message boards there are many in the cast who have been declared as deadwood or just plain awful.

by Annie Walkerreply 13906/06/2020

They missed a big opportunity with the Underworld roof collapse, as well as with Derek, the drunk shooter, who could have blown a few people away with bullets just flying in every direction will-nilly.

by Annie Walkerreply 14006/06/2020

I agree, R140.

by Annie Walkerreply 14106/06/2020

What's Geoff doing now? The last episode we saw here in Canada was Alya changing the locks.

by Annie Walkerreply 14206/07/2020

He's admitted to Tim & Sally that he hired prostitutes, R142, but says Yasmeen drove him to it by withholding affection. He says "the most physical contact we've had in months was when she hit me with that bottle".

by Annie Walkerreply 14306/07/2020

Thanks R143. I read that this is suppose to go on until the end of the year. The writers better be coming up with a really good comeuppance to make us put up with this shit for that long.

by Annie Walkerreply 14406/07/2020

Wow, Kirk was even more annoying than usual in last week’s episodes. One scene with Paul made zero sense and seemed like a hastily written space filler because there was a timing issue with the rest of the episode.

by Annie Walkerreply 14506/07/2020

Can't stand that bitch Izzy sticking her nose in and siding with Geoff. Someone chuck her in the canal.

by Annie Walkerreply 14606/15/2020

What did Carla do?

by Annie Walkerreply 14706/15/2020

I'd guess prostitution, R147

by Annie Walkerreply 14806/15/2020

R148 I really hope she wasn't pimped out as a prostitute when she was unwell, that's so fucking dark. It would also be a bit much for the character, given that she was already raped by her smarmy fiance in the past.

by Annie Walkerreply 14906/16/2020

Izzie was so fucking embarrassing in last night’s episode. Cherylee Houston just gets worse and worse. I wish Gary would push her down the stairs.

by Annie Walkerreply 15006/16/2020

R150 totally agree. She's usually less than competent but last night she was abysmal. Plus the character is a gossipy, nosy drudge who forgets her own wrongdoings.

The character serves no purpose and that actress likely earns more than 4 nurses, just because she's perched in that motorised wheelchair. Sorry if that's nasty but she stinks up the screen!

by Annie Walkerreply 15106/16/2020

[quote] Plus the character is a gossipy, nosy drudge who forgets her own wrongdoings.

That is a staple character of the genre. Though, I must admit this actress is horrible. Remember her big medical marijuana storyline? The acting in Reefer Madness was better.

by Annie Walkerreply 15206/16/2020

R152 I didn't actually see it but a fellow Dlounger introduced me. I can't believe she wasn't nominated for a TV BAFTA..

Who will be killed off when we return?

by Annie Walkerreply 15606/17/2020

I bet Sally is going to play sleuth to reveal Geoff's dark side.

by Annie Walkerreply 15706/17/2020

I loved Sally’s Mama Rose period and am looking forward to her Jessica Fletcher period.

by Annie Walkerreply 15806/17/2020

That guy Carla had to sleep with, while not particularly cute, certainly isn't the greasy troll he could have been. And for people living in a squat they both look fairly clean.

I can't stand the smirking, vicious girl though. Glad they both get the shit kicked out of them

by Annie Walkerreply 15906/18/2020

That squat guy’s teeth were way too nice. The same was true of the squat girl. Her teeth are fucking perfect.

by Annie Walkerreply 16006/18/2020

R160 Every time I see people on the news living in a squat, they tend to be middle class kids.

by Annie Walkerreply 16106/18/2020

I missed The Road to Coronation Street when it first aired in 2010, but I watched it last night and it was brilliant. The funny thing is that even though all of these characters (except Ken) had left the show before I was even born, I still know who they are because they were so iconic to my parents' and grandparents' generations.

by Annie Walkerreply 16206/29/2020

I think Jessie Wallace is a vulgar pig and I loathe her on EastEnders but have to admit she was pretty fucking good as Pat Phoenix.

by Annie Walkerreply 16306/29/2020

The Road to Coronation Street isn't on Britbox. I'd seen it in the past on CBC, though. Not bad.

by Annie Walkerreply 16406/29/2020

Who else is suck of this sick baby storyline?

And are those 2 blackmailer gone now?

by Annie Walkerreply 16506/30/2020

The Oliver storyline is so depressing.

by Annie Walkerreply 16606/30/2020

Is he going to die?

by Annie Walkerreply 16706/30/2020

R167, they made clear in last night’s episode that his condition is “extremely life limiting.”

by Annie Walkerreply 16806/30/2020

R165 What makes the storyline so bad to me, is that the parent's partners are better than the parents. Steve should never have an overly dramatic story because he is best as comic relief. Leann can do drama, but in this storyline she has missed the mark. Nick has stepped up. Lately, he has been dull, but he has hit the right marks during this story. Tracy is always great, but during this story she has managed to temper her usual selfish bitchiness with genuine concern and even love, much like how she shined during the Daniel and Sinead story. They haven't suddenly made her into a copy of Deirdre but you can finally see Deirdre's influence showing up in our Tracy.

by Annie Walkerreply 16906/30/2020

I want more Peter and Carla.

by Annie Walkerreply 17006/30/2020

R169, they were also very smart in cultivating Tracy’s friendship/working relationship with Mary, someone who Tracy wouldn’t have been caught dead associating with in previous years.

by Annie Walkerreply 17107/01/2020

Geoff was deliciously creepy talking to Yasmeen on Alya's cell phone in today's episode.

by Annie Walkerreply 17207/10/2020

R172 yes he was, with his indecent proposal! It really helps that we aren't drowned in 6 episodes and we have to wait a couple of days for the follow-up to these "mini-cliffhangers", rather than just30 minutes, like before.

Carla takes over the factory again next week, I can't wait to see her back in charge after all this time. She excels as the fiesty but caring boss.

by Annie Walkerreply 17307/10/2020

Watching the Shona storyline, I have to wonder: does she even have friends her own age (or rather, did she have any even before the amnesia)? We saw her speaking to Gemma a few weeks ago, but they were never really friends - they just came from the same estate. Outside of the Platts, the closest thing to a friend Shona has is Roy, who's about twice her age. And no one seems to find it odd that Roy has all these much younger women move in with him (Carla, Nina, Shona).

by Annie Walkerreply 17407/11/2020

Carla was a long term friend through Hatley and they have an odd-couple relationship. No a is his long lost niece. Shoba was his employee who he is protective of.

I guess the show has a limited pool of similar aged people who it would make sense she'd be friends with. Maybe Toyah or the mechanic woman?

What's really weird is a mature woman like her (with a 20-something son) would ever be interested in weedy, immature, unbalanced hairdresser David.

by Annie Walkerreply 17507/11/2020

Lol sorry, *Hayley *Nina *Shona.!

by Annie Walkerreply 17607/11/2020

Shona and Kylie would have been friends.

by Annie Walkerreply 17707/11/2020

Apparently Todd Grimshaw is being recast. I don't see the point of recasts unless the previous actor/actress was very young and didn't appear much. I'm not very good at suspending disbelief when a character has a new head. I still don't think of Adam Rickett's Nick and Ben Price's as the same character all these years later. (I never saw the original Tracy.)

Offsite Link
by Annie Walkerreply 17807/13/2020

If they really can’t ethically bring themselves to bring Bruno back then they should recast, I think. Todd is too important a character.

by Annie Walkerreply 17907/13/2020

Todd is far from being an important character

by Annie Walkerreply 18007/13/2020

I think he was. He was Eileen’s son, Jason’s brother, Sarah’s ex, Billy’s ex and Tracy’s best friend. He had a lot of connections in Weatherfield. Definitely an important character deemed worthy of a recast.

by Annie Walkerreply 18107/13/2020

I want Jason Grimshaw in me, quite deeply.

by Annie Walkerreply 18207/13/2020

Join the queue, cock.

by Annie Walkerreply 18307/14/2020

I'll have me another milk stout, luv.

by Annie Walkerreply 18407/14/2020

What's the deal with Scott Emberton? Johnny apparently recognized him. It was suggested that he beat up the man and woman from the squat where Carla spent time during her mental breakdown.

Where do you think think that's all going?

by Annie Walkerreply 18507/14/2020

R183 I hate that they now have Sean saying cock, all the time, like he is Bet. He is NOT worthy to wash Bet's knickers, if she bothered to wear any.

by Annie Walkerreply 18607/14/2020

R185, I think he’s really Carla’s biological father. And I think in the past Johnny cheated him out of something.

by Annie Walkerreply 18707/14/2020

Geoff is a piece of shit. I can't wait to see Paula Wilcox as his ex-wife and Tim's mother, though.

by Annie Walkerreply 18807/14/2020

Thanks, R187 .

by Annie Walkerreply 18907/15/2020

Tonight's episode was the first to be entirely filmed in accordance with social distancing. Quite a strong week of episodes.

by Annie Walkerreply 19007/24/2020

It really is firing on all cylinders. It’s helped enormously by having Izzy, Sean, Fizz and Gemma on at a bare minimum.

by Annie Walkerreply 19107/25/2020

Do you think Elaine Jones will be a long-term character? I hope that Tim will eventually want to get to know her. We only have one mother, after all. Or do we?

by Annie Walkerreply 19207/29/2020

I think Paula Wilcox is wonderful as Elaine/Philippa but don’t see her being on long term.

by Annie Walkerreply 19307/29/2020

R193 Depends, when they first brought on Maureen Lipman as Evelyn, I didn't see her becoming a long term character. But, she has fit in perfectly and is now one of my favorite characters.

by Annie Walkerreply 19607/31/2020

Helen Worth is 69, is she sick or just being extra cautious? Why would they be keeping her off-screen, Paula Wilcox is 70, Ian Bartholomew is 66, though honestly he looks older than Ken.

by Annie Walkerreply 19707/31/2020

Corrie is going back to six episodes a week in September.

by Annie Walkerreply 19808/02/2020

So, do you think Geoff killed Elaine/ Philippa?

by Annie Walkerreply 19908/04/2020

No, but he really frightened her. She'll be back.

by Annie Walkerreply 20008/04/2020

The Oliver storyline is leaving me cold. It feels as though the writers and actors are just going through the motions.

by Annie Walkerreply 20108/06/2020

Everyone wants a dead baby ever since Michelle got that award for hers.

NuTodd looks fine.

by Annie Walkerreply 20808/12/2020

How's Carla doing at the factory?

by Annie Walkerreply 20908/12/2020

She’s not been seen there much yet. I think Covid totally derailed her storyline because Jenny mentioned that Scott wasn’t staying at the Rovers Return anymore and had “gone home.”

by Annie Walkerreply 21008/12/2020

R210 yes it really must have, such a shame

by Annie Walkerreply 21108/12/2020

I loved it when Adam finally said “murder” on Wednesday’s episode. I want Sam Robertson to star as Young Taggart after he sits on my face.

by Annie Walkerreply 21208/15/2020

Gary and Maria barely went near each other at their own wedding! I don't know why the writers didn't just push the wedding back until social distancing restrictions have eased (although in fairness, that could be further away than we think).

by Annie Walkerreply 21308/18/2020

I wonder how they’ll shoot Tim and Sally’s wedding.

by Annie Walkerreply 21408/18/2020

R214 I doubt they'll have one anytime soon.

by Annie Walkerreply 21508/18/2020

R215, it’s happening late next month, I know someone on the show. And the big 60th anniversary episodes begin filming in early October. The three episodes a week thing (which I far prefer) will continue until October.

by Annie Walkerreply 21608/19/2020

Where is Elaine? They could at least show her wherever she is. I bet that scumbag Geoff beat her up.

by Annie Walkerreply 21708/19/2020

Where is this storyline going with Gemma and that bitch Vanessa?

by Annie Walkerreply 21808/24/2020

R218 Maybe they'll have a lesbian affair.

I can't really remember but wasn't Imogen the big bitch in that storyline. Vanessa always reminded me of the girls that hung out with the mean girls, and went along to be popular, but they weren't actually mean girls themselves.

by Annie Walkerreply 21908/24/2020

Debbie Webster has potential. Will she try to break up Kevin and Abi ?

by Annie Walkerreply 22008/27/2020

Debbie has Kevin's interests -- or what she thinks they are -- at heart. She doesn't want to see him hurt. So, expect her and Abby to clash, especially if by starts on the dope again. Or, if she gets involved with Peter.

by Annie Walkerreply 22108/27/2020

I think Debbie could end up with Johnny if Jenny dumps him.

by Annie Walkerreply 23208/30/2020

I miss Rita and Roy.

by Annie Walkerreply 23308/30/2020

R231, I used to like David and Shona, but the shooting/amnesia storyline is daft even by Corrie standards. I understand the actress went on maternity leave, but they could have come up with a better explanation.

by Annie Walkerreply 23408/30/2020

Monday’s episode was extremely underwhelming.

by Annie Walkerreply 23509/02/2020

What happened?

by Annie Walkerreply 23609/02/2020

Nothing. That was the problem.

How many scenes of Alya and Geoff bitching at each other must we endure. It’s become way too monotonous.

I don't want to imagine Geoff having sex with anyone.

by Annie Walkerreply 24309/04/2020

R243 I don't know, I like to think of him going to jail and getting an abusive cellmate that will terrorize him, including with sex, the way he has terrorized his wives.

How's Carla getting on at the factory?

by Annie Walkerreply 24509/04/2020

Is the new Todd hot enough for his new storyline to be him working as a rentboy to get by?

by Annie Walkerreply 24609/05/2020

R245 They haven't been showing the factory too much. I think the lockdown changed their plans, for her storyline.

by Annie Walkerreply 24709/05/2020

At least they mentioned the factory is making masks as well as knickers.

by Annie Walkerreply 24809/05/2020

Finally, Tim has seen the real Geoff! This just paves the way for Tim and Sally to track down Elaine.

by Annie Walkerreply 24909/09/2020

I was so relieved, R249! Hadn't read ahead and wasn't expecting Tim to accept the truth so quickly.

by Annie Walkerreply 25009/09/2020

Same here, R250. To be fair, the video was the catalyst that allowed Tim to put the pieces together after so many warnings from Sally . Also, it was not too long ago that Tim showed doubt about Tess being his mother. Today's reveal was a big breakthrough for the storyline.

by Annie Walkerreply 25109/09/2020

The climax to the Geoff/Yasmeen storyline will be part of the 60th anniversary celebration in early December.

by Annie Walkerreply 25209/09/2020

Please don't say Geoff and Climax in the same sentence. Poor Yasmeen, everything else and she had to sleep with that foul fucker as well. At least his escorts were paid for it!

At first I thought they were going to find footage from the attack night, where Geoff threatens to kill Yasmeen with a knife. I guess the Police will find that.

by Annie Walkerreply 25309/09/2020

I’m confused. Why did Ray Crosby cause the sinkhole in the back garden of the Platt house? What does he have against them?

by Annie Walkerreply 25409/11/2020

It's extremely vague, I don't watch all episodes but it seems he wants something from David. Hopefully not his little 4-incher

by Annie Walkerreply 25509/12/2020

Ray apparently has a massive vendetta against several Weatherfield households. This storyline is intriguing but already looks to be a convoluted mess.

by Annie Walkerreply 25609/12/2020

I bet Shona is going to discover Ray’s plot, but people will think she’s crazy.

by Annie Walkerreply 25709/12/2020

Quite glad to see Natasha back. I remember thinking that she had potential but kept being sidelined by lesser characters the first time round.

by Annie Walkerreply 25809/12/2020

I remember Carla being cruel to Batasha back when Nicky was a partner at Underworld.

by Annie Walkerreply 25909/12/2020

I think Ray will rape Shona.

by Annie Walkerreply 26009/12/2020

R260 I think it will be Gail!

by Annie Walkerreply 26109/12/2020

Gail will rape Shona?

by Annie Walkerreply 26209/12/2020

The Oliver storyline is such a blatant rip-off of the Charlie Gard case from a few years ago.

by Annie Walkerreply 26309/17/2020

Will they kill him off?

by Annie Walkerreply 26409/17/2020

They have to, don’t they? So that Leanne goes nuts when Toyah fosters a kid and Nick establishes a relationship with his long lost son.

by Annie Walkerreply 26509/17/2020

Not another depressed Steve storyline. He's a woeful actor who actually gets worse as the years go on.

by Annie Walkerreply 26609/17/2020

Why have they suddenly started looking for Todd after 3 years?

by Annie Walkerreply 26709/17/2020

So apparently Ray isn't targeting the Platts as much as he wants to buy their house. He also wants to buy the garage anf other places.

Wasn't this a storyline on Eastenders?

by Annie Walkerreply 26809/19/2020

R268, yes, Gavin (Kathy’s ex/Sharon’s dad) attempted to buy up Walford but the storyline was abruptly halted.

by Annie Walkerreply 26909/19/2020

I thought it was James Wilmott Brown, Kathy's rapist, helped by ginger weasel Max

by Annie Walkerreply 27009/19/2020

When's Gail going to get another cock up her cooch? It's been years.

The Baileys haven't been seen since the end of July when Michael helped his dad, Ed, celebrate a virtual wedding anniversary with Aggie who was staying at a hotel somewhere.

Yes, R278.

by Annie Walkerreply 27909/21/2020

Why did Carla tell off Michael? I missed that.

by Annie Walkerreply 28009/21/2020

by Annie Walkerreply 29209/27/2020

Yes, she's got "gland problems".

The Grace storyline is just weird. There haven't been any signs of her being unstable until this point.

by Annie Walkerreply 29410/03/2020

What did Grace do?

Adam's hair is wild, he probably has a big bush

by Annie Walkerreply 29510/03/2020

R295, Grace pretended that Tiana was her and Michael's baby when really she was just the child she was babysitting

by Annie Walkerreply 29610/03/2020

That kid playing Nick’s son was pretty impressive. He must have a photographic memory. How else did he do his very first scene with a shitload of dialogue including astronomy terminology?

by Annie Walkerreply 29710/03/2020

They should have made Nick's newfound kid a girl and a young Gail-lookalike!

by Annie Walkerreply 29810/03/2020

Honestly, I must admit that I didn't see the Grace thing coming. I knew she was a bit of a strange bitch. But, I didn't suspect she was passing off a kid that wasn't even hers.

by Annie Walkerreply 29910/04/2020

Where's Gail hiding?

by Annie Walkerreply 30010/06/2020

She was back last night, but she was unsuccessful in finding a new chin.

by Annie Walkerreply 30110/06/2020

R301 Eileen any success in losing any of your considerable girth during lockdown? Big Bones!

by Annie Walkerreply 30210/07/2020

She was wearing an awful lot of make up for somebody just off a flight from fucking Thailand.

by Annie Walkerreply 30310/07/2020

Sally looks brilliant for her age, but she's seriously pushing it by wearing white. At my count, this is her fifth wedding: two marriages to Kevin, a jilting at the altar by Danny in the early 2000s, and a previous void marriage to Tim.

by Annie Walkerreply 30410/07/2020

Before her last wedding I laughed when she told Gail where she got her wedding dress and Gail happily enthused "Oh that's where I got some of mine from!" Cue dirty Sally look.

Amazing Gail has had one fewer wedding than Elizabeth Taylor! . 4 of them dead.

Not keen on new Todd so far. I'm generally against recasts, though.

Idle wondering: in real life, how many people actually get married in bistros? So many people get married there on Corrie.

by Annie Walkerreply 30810/10/2020

Too bad they don't still have the mission on the street. It would've made a hell of a lot more sense. What happened to Yasmine's community center, after the factory moved out? It would make sense for weddings.

by Annie Walkerreply 30910/10/2020

All the scenes with that fugly thug Mick were eminently fast-forwardable Wednesday night and then tonight.

by Annie Walkerreply 31010/16/2020

It's been rubbish recently. The actor who plays the new Todd is awful.

Also, now that Billy & Paul are having more scenes together, it's becoming more and more obvious that they just don't work. There's no chemistry there.

by Annie Walkerreply 31110/16/2020

Funny how they have five gay male characters on this show, yet nothing related to them makes me want to watch.

by Annie Walkerreply 31210/16/2020

Poor Gail almost flattened into the cobbles! Missed her.

I really like Evelyn and her attitude. Glad the actress who plays her received a Damehood.

I'm sorry they brought this new Todd in, I simply couldn't care less about him. And of course his intellect has been watered down - he was something of a prodigy as a teen.

My second reason for disliking his return is we have to see back-end-of-a-bus Eileen more often. Awful.

And who the fuck was ever consider Billy as an Archdeacon? He's an atrocious Vicar and hard on the ears/eyes.

by Annie Walkerreply 31310/16/2020

I think Helen Worth had a chemical peel or something during the lockdown. She's looking much less wrinkled, but nowhere near an actual lift.

by Annie Walkerreply 31410/17/2020

Gail has always been a natural beauty. That Eileen on the other hand. Every time she wears make-up she looks like a clown.

by Annie Walkerreply 31510/17/2020

R315 Agree about Eileen, she looks just like a deceased aunt of mine, and she was the same.

by Annie Walkerreply 31810/17/2020

If he does die maybe he can leave her enough money to move out of that shithole house of Fiz. Ugly and cheap

by Annie Walkerreply 31910/17/2020

R319 I wasn't watching then, and I know Jack and Vera weren't fancy people, but from the clips/episodes I've seen the house looked much better when they lived there.

Is that the house that had Hilda and Stan’s murial?

by Annie Walkerreply 32110/17/2020

What are the odds that Billy, devout vicar that he is, is now about to start banging Todd behind Paul's back?

When Gail was hassling her, Natasha should have brought up the time Gail broke the law by accessing her medical records and telling Nick she'd had an abortion. She should have been prosecuted for that.

by Annie Walkerreply 33210/22/2020

R332 I believe it was Tracy's files Gail accessed to help Becky prove Tracy miscarried before she and Becky got into a fight and Tracy fell down the stairs. T claimed she lost her twins as a result of the fall, ending Becky's marriage to Steve.

Gail helped her as Tracy had lied in court, claiming her cellmate Gail (!) had confessed to murdering her husband Joe (!)

Gail did get fired from the Medical Centre for this.

If I'm wrong and Gail breached confidentiality with Natasha also, please forgive me. I thought Nick badgered Natasha into an abortion as he didn't love her/want a baby.

by Annie Walkerreply 33310/22/2020

R333, you're probably right. I was only watching Corrie on and off back then, so I'm probably remembering wrong.

I don't understand these young actors and actresses who leave these types of shows thinking the world is their oyster. It's an easy paycheque, no heavy lifting and regular work.

by Annie Walkerreply 33610/27/2020

Precisely R336 what an idiot. If you don't what to be an actress fair enough but don't go thinking you'll be a star.

As much as I can't stand Sean, Eileen, Izzy, Chesney or Fiz, at least those actors realise they have it made and that they're not talented enough to make a living elsewhere!

by Annie Walkerreply 33710/28/2020

R337, they’re also too fugly to make it elsewhere in the business of show.

That was the first Oliver-centric episode that I actually found engaging. It was interesting to see how the various members of Oliver's family reacted to the ruling.

I think they've made Tracy too nice nowadays. As if she would tell Leanne that she wanted to give her a hug!

by Annie Walkerreply 34311/13/2020

So the judge rules that Oliver should have artificial means of sustaining life withdrawn. I have to say I am HATING Leanne, but loving Jane Danson's acting. Even Steve MacDonald has seen reason. So when will this happen? Or are they going to drag it out even more. [italic](Easter, 2021, Oliver gets easter candy through his feeding tube...)[/italic]

Coming up, Peter falls off the wagon (again) and it may be over between him and Carla -- and they'll likely get back together. More shitstirring from Todd, and Mary loses another man.

Jenny’s stepdaughter will probably bang Adam. After he bangs Alina.

by Annie Walkerreply 34511/14/2020

I'd bang Adam.

by Annie Walkerreply 34611/14/2020

R343 I actually like the way they are writing Tracy nowadays. They are making her into Deidre Jr. She is still capable of being hell on wheels but when push comes to shove, she is there for her family.

by Annie Walkerreply 34711/15/2020

JUST KILL THE KID ALREADY!

I’m wondering if Adam will be banging Carla. They’ve shared several scenes recently. That would be hot.

by Annie Walkerreply 34811/17/2020

The intro with Geoff singing Supertramp was one of the most surreal moments I've ever seen on Corrie. For a split second there, I really did think they were going to open the episode with a mock music video.

Part of a very interesting interview with William Roache:

I’m very fortunate that Ken wasn’t some horrible vicious serial killer or someone you wouldn’t be too happy to play. He has been a guy who is trying to keep peace with his dysfunctional family. That I love and like. So I am very much in tune with what he is and what he does even though we are different types of people.

Can you tell us a little about Ken’s storyline in the 60th anniversary episodes?

I’m involved in a really interesting story that is very much Ken. In trying to save a part of Coronation Street which I really enjoy and like. And then I’m going to have big problems with my dysfunctional family. Peter is going to fall off the wagon again. It’s all really good stuff. Powerful and always well written, of course. It’s a strong storyline which I have really enjoyed filming.

Ken has always protested for what is right. He took part in the CND marches and anti-Vietnam War protests in the sixties. He always takes a stand for peace, love and a caring community. I am very much in tune with that. The one thing I want more than anything is world peace. Imagine if we had world peace? If countries didn’t have to spend money on armaments, that would solve pretty much every other problem we have. And that is a thing that is possible. If a lot of people seriously thought about world peace and being peaceful themselves, it can happen. And that’s how it will happen. Not through governments. Through people.

Fire the writers and hire new ones. The current storylines are utter, irredeemable shite.

Have Todd die a painful, horrible, permanent death. And have him take Paul and Billy with him.

The praise for NuTodd on UK message boards baffles me. He’s nowhere near as appealing as the original Todd and not good looking at all.

The writers killed Simon's mum off-screen so he could go to live with Peter... they killed Joseph's mum off-screen so he could go to live with Chesney... what are the odds that before Natasha's three months in London are up, Nick will get a phone to say she's been in a nasty accident?

I haven’t watched it for years. I remember the great characters from the 70s, but they wouldn’t get a look in now. I recommend Buggernation Street on YouTube. Whole episodes from the 70s have been dubbed to create a storyline where the entire street is populated by perverts. It’s hysterically funny.

by Annie Walkerreply 39902/06/2021

R398 Honestly, I used to think they were. But, looking at them closely and at pics of the actresses off screen, I don't think they are. There are none of the tell tale signs of wigs. Now, Rita I'm sure wears wigs.

I have never watched Coronation Street and I haven’t read all these threads. Today I watched Joanna Lumley’s Home Sweet Home, where she visits the street and talks about when she was briefly on the show in 1973. She meets up with William Roache, who played her love interest, and they talked about how he’s been on the show for 60 years! I thought he looked quite great for a 88 year old man and decided to Google him...and found out he’d been accused of being a sex pest! Did anything ever come of that? He is still on the show often?

by Annie Walkerreply 42202/28/2021

R422, he was found not guilty on two counts of rape and four indecent assaults.

Shortly before he was charged, he had made some bizarre comments to the press about how victims of child sexual abuse are being punished for things they did wrong in their past lives.

by Annie Walkerreply 42302/28/2021

I'm ready to give the show a rest. Steve's horrid actions towards Peter. Leanne acting like a doormat. Clueless Nick. Sean needs to leave the show permanently. And have him take Todd with him. The writing is shite.

by Annie Walkerreply 43203/09/2021

It's awful at the moment, R432. The producers said there were some hasty rewrites after lockdown restrictions were tightened at New Year, so that must be what we're seeing right now. There are scenes that just go round and round with the same dialogue being repeated. It's such obvious filler.

by Annie Walkerreply 43303/09/2021

Steve was genuinely unbearable with Peter on Monday night. It bordered on abuse.

Good news: Tracie Bennett is returning as Sharon Gaskell after many years. I think she was Rita’s stepdaughter like Jenny but from a different husband. Bennett played Carlotta in Follies in London as well as Judy Garland both in London and on Broadway.

Even though I couldn't generally give a damn about Tyrone and Fiz, the scene where they argued over Alina last night felt the most realistic Corrie has in ages. I actually felt like I was watching real people for once.

"I’ve always fancied Morocco,” she said, adding the killer line: “I think it’s the kidney getting homesick.”

by Annie Walkerreply 47204/16/2021

Tracy really is the second coming of Blanche.

by Annie Walkerreply 47304/16/2021

I loved it when Deirdre referred to Tyrone’s abusive wife Kirsty as “her with the hair.”

by Annie Walkerreply 47404/16/2021

Blanche, asking about one of Deidre's bosses: "Him with the nose?" Deidre (perfectly serious): "No, the other one".

Here's a video of some of Blanche. The bit I reference is around 2:40

Simon was a cute kid in the video at r475. Now he looks like a gormless pillock.

by Annie Walkerreply 47604/17/2021

Who has the nicest house on the street?

Shitholes: Fiz and Tyrone

Chesney

Eileen

Passable but inelegant: Kevin

Sally and Tim

The Rovers

Decent: Gail

Rita

Ken

Dev

by Annie Walkerreply 47704/17/2021

I like Ken's house.

by Annie Walkerreply 47804/17/2021

What is this on the wall at the Platts? I've seen similar in other houses. Alarm system? Intercom? Fast-food ordering device?

by Annie Walkerreply 47904/17/2021

When Richard Hillman was on the run it was a panic alarm.

I think it's a burglar alarm.

by Annie Walkerreply 48004/17/2021

Tracie Bennett better show up as Sharon soon. I’m becoming impatient.

by Annie Walkerreply 48104/17/2021

Sharon’s definitely involved in the drugs storyline

And chance Adam Rickitt can return as Nick? He’s way hotter than Ben Price plus we know Nick is a secret bi guy.

by Annie Walkerreply 48204/24/2021

I doubt Adam Rickitt will ever return as Nick. Ben Price has played the role for eleven years now (with a brief break from 2017 to 2018). Adam only played him for about a year and a half in the 90s, and then on-and-off from 2002 to 2004. He always pinged my gaydar, but apparently he's married to a woman. The funny thing is I still think of him as the real Nick - similar to the way I still think of Kym Marsh as "Kym from Hear'Say" rather than "Michelle from Corrie", even though she was the latter for much longer than the former!

by Annie Walkerreply 48304/26/2021

Maria's anti-stepmother spiel made no sense. Fiz IS Ruby's stepmother!

by Annie Walkerreply 48404/26/2021

Haha, R484. Good point.

So Sharon isn’t the drug kingpin, she’s under the thumb of her nephew, Harvey. Oh wel.

by Annie Walkerreply 48504/26/2021

The low IQs on the street fived even lower with the Sharon storyline. "I must have grabbed your tablet by mistake!" Another shit set of scripts written by the no-talent idiots at ITV.

How long until Aadi kills Aasha and Corey in an "honour" killing? If she wants to move out (legal for 16 y.o.) then fine -- send her back to Weatherfield High and save the tuition money.

by Annie Walkerreply 48604/27/2021

I'm hating this Sharon storyline, but if it gets that toad Simon out of the way, all the better. I'm not familiar with English law, but what could Sharon be charged with for what she's done so far and what might happen?

by Annie Walkerreply 48704/30/2021

I don't know what she could be charged with, but the whole storyline is painfully silly. Apart from anything else, why haven't Leanne, Nick and Simon even moved that far away? How rubbish is this witness protection scheme?

by Annie Walkerreply 48805/01/2021

I know, they’re in Warrington which is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Weatherfield. They could at least be in the Midlands, somewhere like Birmingham.

So this coming week Seb and Nina are attacked by Corey, Kelly and other drunk teens. I’m guessing Seb will lay in a coma for a bit and then die and Nina will make a full recovery and discover she’s pregnant with Seb’s baby

by Annie Walkerreply 48905/01/2021

Wasn't Nina a lez?

by Annie Walkerreply 49005/03/2021

R490 They were just experimenting, being fluid.

by Annie Walkerreply 49105/03/2021

Sad. She looked like a great lesbian.

by Annie Walkerreply 49205/03/2021

This show is unwatchable, not one decent storyline.

by Annie Walkerreply 49305/03/2021

I wish they'd bring back Oliver.

Just so we don't have to listen to Steve and Leann bang on about him anymore.

by Annie Walkerreply 49405/03/2021

Didn't Tracy also get her box eaten by a woman a while back?

by Annie Walkerreply 49505/03/2021

R495 Yes, Paula the lawyer, Sally's old school friend.

by Annie Walkerreply 49605/03/2021

Out of Rita's pseudo daughters I like Jenny a hell of a lot more than Sharon.

by Annie Walkerreply 49705/03/2021

Sharon was a waster who sold Rita's Kabin out from under her.

Would you eat in Roy's Rolls? Roy and his staff need to wear a hairnet and I prefer the kitchen outback rather than the searing area stinking of chip fat. That being said, I do like the train history and gossip you can overhear

by Annie Walkerreply 49805/03/2021

At least Roy’s Rolls doesn’t have that annoying “Sugar-free syrups available” sign like the one on Emmerdale.

by Annie Walkerreply 49905/03/2021

I'm glad they keep having characters talk to or about Rita. Not seeing her, and having Sharon around, I'm a little worried about our Rita.

by Annie Walkerreply 50005/03/2021

I love Tracie Bennett as Sharon but she’s cackling way too much.

by Annie Walkerreply 50105/03/2021

Strong episodes for once! Great performances from the actors who play Abi and Roy in particular.

by Annie Walkerreply 50205/05/2021

I fear one of them will die and Peter end up with a new liver.

by Annie Walkerreply 50305/05/2021

He’ll end up with Seb’s liver, right? Except can someone with HIV donate a liver?

by Annie Walkerreply 50405/05/2021

no r504 -- it can only go to an HIV+ recipient according to UK protocols.

by Annie Walkerreply 50505/06/2021

I bet Seb has a nice pinga

by Annie Walkerreply 50605/06/2021

It'll be too bad if either Seb or Nina dies. For once, a couple with some spark and sparkle on the cobbles. Asha will probably go to the wall for Corey, stupid girl.

Offsite Link
by Annie Walkerreply 50705/06/2021

I couldn’t bear to watch the actual assault. Summer witnessed most of it, right? At least Kelly smacking Nina?

I feel sorry for the ones playing Cory, Kelly and the other kids. They’re bound to get a hard time on the street because of their characters’ actions. Just when pubs are reopening and people will be out drinking a lot in warmer weather.

by Annie Walkerreply 50805/06/2021

R508 I wouldn't be able to recognise them on the street, they are so inconsequential. Bring back the Corrie oldies! Get Rita on Zoom!

Maybe a Corrie special with Rita, Ken and Audrey?

by Annie Walkerreply 50905/06/2021

I am surprised that out of all the teens to become involved in trouble, that Tracey's daughter is one of the most level headed and has largely stayed clear of the bad crowd.

by Annie Walkerreply 51005/06/2021

Amy reminds me of Blanche.

by Annie Walkerreply 51105/07/2021

Tracy might be a bitch but she really isn't nearly as bad a mother as some others on the cobbles.

by Annie Walkerreply 51205/07/2021

Why wasn’t Tracy at Abi’s hen do? I thought they were friends.

The actress playing Amy has managed to get through that “awkward stage” so will probably stay on the show for as long as she wants. Good for her. I hope Faye is banged up forever.

by Annie Walkerreply 51305/07/2021

Faye is awful, I didn't like Anna either.

I normally think Fiz is awful but she's actually been surprisingly good with this ridic affair storyline (based off seeing one episode)

Glad they've cut down on Gemma (and Ginger). A little of them needs to go a long way.

Sean is still unbearable and needs to go.

by Annie Walkerreply 51405/07/2021

Seb is DEAD to me!

He had a hot ass but he couldn’t live forever.

by Annie Walkerreply 51505/07/2021

Killing Seb makes sense from a storyline point of view. More drama for Abi and Kevin. Grief for Nina. Guilt for the murderers.

Maybe the actor wanted out. He's a sexy young thing who might think he can make it big

by Annie Walkerreply 51605/07/2021

I don’t think the actor wanted out, I think Seb was killed off for storyline purposes. His death will have a big impact on Weatherfield. I wonder if Leanne and Abj will actually find themselves in grief therapy sessions. Have those two ever been in scenes together? I doubt it.

by Annie Walkerreply 51705/07/2021

Thanks for spoiling it, motherfuckers.

by Annie Walkerreply 51805/07/2021

Why were they beat up? I know it's not real but was really disgusted seeing Nina so badly bruised. People can be animals

by Annie Walkerreply 51905/07/2021

I stupidly checked my phone for the local election results before I watched the episode, and the first thing I saw was a tweet saying "RIP Seb"! Totally spoiled it for myself.

by Annie Walkerreply 52005/07/2021

When I saw Seb laying bare chested on the hospital bed, all I could think about was ejaculating on his furry little pecs.

I am an animal.

by Annie Walkerreply 52105/07/2021

He seemed to have manboobs when he was wearing a t-shirt earlier in the week but didn’t appear to have them when he was lying in hospital bare chested. Bad continuity, heh heh.

by Annie Walkerreply 52205/07/2021

Asha's shown her true colours, insisting to Nina that Corey wasn't the culprit before even asking about Seb

by Annie Walkerreply 52305/07/2021

R522 lying down makes your boobs slide down, have you never watched The Golden Girls?

R520 where are you?

R523 I had the measure of that little strumpet when she was nasty to her brother when he was sticking up for her in front of ugly Corey last year.

by Annie Walkerreply 52405/07/2021

R524 she is as bad as her whore of a mother. Remember, the fact that Dev was with another woman, when he and Sunita started their love affair. Then she later got back with Dev, while she was engaged to another man. And, of course who can forget Sunita and Karl's affair which led to her death.

by Annie Walkerreply 52505/07/2021

Thanks for joining us Maya/R525!

by Annie Walkerreply 52605/07/2021

It seems obvious that Corey will get off because his rich dad gets him a good lawyer. And then Abi probably murders him when Sally Carman decides to leave the show,

by Annie Walkerreply 52705/07/2021

R526 Actually, I'm Stella Price, ;)

by Annie Walkerreply 52805/07/2021

And I'm Ena Sharples., r536 and r528. Now bring me a milk stout.

by Annie Walkerreply 529Last Saturday at 5:14 AM

Maya was hilarious. One of the show's best villains.

by Annie Walkerreply 530Last Saturday at 5:24 AM

They really did turn once-sensible Sunita into a slut for her final storyline with Karl. I think I remember the actress speaking out about it. I also remember she found out about Dev's affair and almost had an abortion when she was 5 months pregnant

by Annie Walkerreply 531Last Saturday at 5:37 AM

Imagine working in an office with Adam and Imran. Rosie's knickers must have been soaking!

by Annie Walkerreply 532Last Saturday at 5:56 AM

[quote] [R520] where are you?

Scotland

by Annie Walkerreply 533Last Saturday at 6:07 AM

R533 I'm in London. Crazy election results. I wonder if they will reference it in the show?

by Annie Walkerreply 534Last Saturday at 6:09 AM

Sean should be killed off when his pyramid scheme collapses. Big Eileen kills him and gets sent to prison. Two birds, one stone

by Annie Walkerreply 535Last Saturday at 6:44 AM

Corey could be killed in a who done it around New Years Eve.

by Annie Walkerreply 536Last Saturday at 6:59 AM

It will be Asha but Aadi will take the blame

by Annie Walkerreply 537Last Saturday at 7:04 AM

R534, I knew things would be bad for Labour but not quite this bad. It would be quite entertaining if the Corrie characters discussed politics. I expect most of them would have voted Leave in 2016, for example.

by Annie Walkerreply 538Last Saturday at 8:09 AM

What's happened to Kathy the troll?

by Annie Walkerreply 539Last Saturday at 8:56 AM

R539 Last I heard/saw Cathy was holed up with Yasmeen and Elaine and driving them bonkers.

by Annie Walkerreply 540Last Saturday at 5:45 PM

Are Yasmin and Elaine butting uglies?

by Annie Walkerreply 541Last Sunday at 3:05 AM

no they arent. though the actress playing yasmin is a lesbian

by Annie Walkerreply 542Last Sunday at 5:40 AM

What's the lesbian version of a lemon party?

by Annie Walkerreply 543Last Sunday at 6:10 AM

Gail should become a lesbian after all her disasters with men. She could hook up with Elaine

by Annie Walkerreply 544Last Sunday at 6:33 AM

Well, Gail’s dad turned out to be gay.

by Annie Walkerreply 545Last Sunday at 9:43 AM

Yes, Asha! I'm glad the writers haven't gone down the predictable route of having her lie for Corey.

by Annie Walkerreply 546Last Monday at 11:25 AM

Sally Carman totally broke me when she read out Seb’s best man speech. I know...MARY!

by Annie Walkerreply 547Last Tuesday at 2:24 PM

^ She's been fantastic in these last few episodes

by Annie Walkerreply 548Last Tuesday at 3:02 PM

^ She has, I hope she wins some awards for this story.

by Annie Walkerreply 549Last Tuesday at 5:56 PM

I’m pretty sure she will.

by Annie Walkerreply 550Last Wednesday at 2:02 PM

Apparently the reason they created the character of Nina in 2019 was for this storyline. That makes me wonder why certain elements are so rushed. Why didn't they get Seb and Nina together months ago? It would have been much more poignant if they had; as it stands, it's hard to take Nina's claim that she "loved Seb so much" seriously. Why didn't they move Kelly in with Toyah and Imran last year?

by Annie Walkerreply 551a day ago

Good points, R551.

This storyline has some good points (primarily Sally Carman and David Neilson’s acting) but it hasn’t been thought through enough. The attack is being too murkily handled. Are we really supposed to think that Corey has a scintilla of remorse? That his dad really believes he didn’t do it? And Kelly is totally irredeemable and unworthy of sympathy-her laughter is just the tipping point. When she raced over to Corey’s afterward she didn’t show any sign of horror at what had just happened, all she cared about was saving her own skin.

I’d love for Asha to have a dream where Nina goes full Goth again, develops telekinesis and flips over Corey and Kelly in a car, pausing as they lie there pleading for their lives and then she blows their heads off their bodies.

by Annie Walkerreply 55218 hours ago

R551 Could it have been because of the production shut down and fewer episodes when they did return, that makes it seem rushed? My guess is that the Seb actor, had to be let go at a certain time, because of the way contracts are.

by Annie Walkerreply 55314 hours ago

You may be right, R553. The producers did say a lot of storylines had to be rewritten due to the pandemic.
