I don't understand why Fiz and Tyrone are banging on about custody battles. Neither of them ever adopted the other's child. The court would give Tyrone custody of Ruby and Fiz custody of Hope. Simple.

Ruby’s mother must be out of prison by now. She should show up to fight for custody, bringing Fizz and Tyrone closer together.

I don't think Tommy Orpington would go within three miles of Corey. His agent should have done some background and said "We can't be seen with this kid. He's involved in bashing and murder. Even if he didn't do it, we can't go near him." Yet there they are, treating Corey like God's Gift.

I should have figured it wasn’t Kelly. They’ll need to have her in the story when her dad returns and she forces him to get the truth out about Rana’s death so Imran will finally get justice. And Garry will finally go to prison for it. This must also be why Zeedan is returning. I gather the actress who played Kate was a huge cunt but maybe they’ll bring her back for a few weeks.

No Corrie tonight (Wed. 8 Sept.) due to football. We get the verdicts on Friday. My prediction is that both get convicted, but I'm not feeling sure about that.

Next week brings sadness to the street when a "beloved" character dies. It's already been revealed that it is Norris Cole. Yes, you probably already thought he was dead. Also, Imran and Sabeen seem to have kindled something. A a new couple break up.

by Anonymousreply 181September 8, 2021 10:49 PM

Imran and Toyah had potential to be an interesting couple but the writers squandered it. They quickly became dull together. I don't care if he leaves her for Sabeen.

I think Kelly will be convicted, although I suspect it would be very difficult to get a conviction in real life if the surviving victim insisted she had seen the defendant try to stop the attack. Surely that would more than constitute reasonable doubt? I think England and Wales still have the double jeopardy law, so if Corey is found not guilty he can't be put on trial again even if Abi finds proof that his dad bribed Eli to lie under oath.

by Anonymousreply 182September 8, 2021 11:00 PM

The Criminal Justice Act of 2003 can bypass the double-jeopardy rule if there is "new and compelling evidence" introduced. Whether Corey's father's bride rises to that is for HM Courts & Tribunals Service to decide.

Speaking of our dear Emily, I was hoping we would get another Zoom appearance from her for Norris' sendoff.

I think there is something special about using an older beloved character in a technologically advanced way.

The actress seems to be in good health and her husband died. I doubt the she will ever return in person, though if she wanted to I'd say yes please. But, the zoom stuff shouldn't be too taxing for her and give her something to do.

R291 I agree. There is a fine line between dim but loveable and just annoyingly stupid. Sadly, Emma has been leaning much too much to the later.

I don't blame the actress. I think she is doing a great job. I blame the writers, some of the things they have her say would've made Rose Nyland roll her eyes at her.

Completely agree. They did this with Maria too, made her deeply dim to contrast her with Carla, back when Liam was cheating on her.

One of her lines while devouring a celeb magazine was was "Do you think Minnie Driver really drives a mini?"

Give good actresses decent lines!

They did nail it with Rosie Webster though, she was an amusing bimbo used to good effect.

R295 I always expected the writers to pair Sally and Kevin again but they actually did a really good job matching Tim and Sally. I don't see Abi and Tim together. The problem is Kevin is so regular and an everyman.

Anyone else thinking Carla is always dressed in drab colours and clothes? In her first few years she was very glamorous and dressed really well. Seems like wardrobe just stick her in dark this-and-that nowadays.

I understand it suited at certain points in her storylines but since she returned in 2017 they've given up making her up.

I have to say I really like the child actor playing Sam. He is very natural and good. Even, silently, he made you really feel his emotional turmoil. He would've been huge in silent movies.

Also, I predict that at some point Kelly will return to the street and she and Jack will have a love affair and his new mommy isn't going to like it. There is only two years difference in their ages and the Jack actor is tall enough that it could work.

Although her acting is great, I want the Abi storyline to evolve or move on now

Sick of Asha and Nina, they get too much screen time.

by Anonymousreply 417April 5, 2022 1:03 AM

Come on, you know Toyah and Imran will reunite and fight Abi for custody of Alfie. Toyah far prefers raising a boobeh than a little girl like Elsie, anyway.

Charlie de Melo is leaving Corrie, apparently.

Toyah is like Nina, on the US General Hospital, they are the only two characters from soaps that I can remember where the central issue for their characters has become their overwhelming need to mother a child, yet they can't have one of their own. Others have, of course, shown a desire to have a baby. But, it seems to be all either of them talk about and the only thing they care about.

I fully expect Emma to return after a year explaining that only a month later in Australia did she discover that John was a big ol’ closet case.

by Anonymousreply 421April 9, 2022 2:34 AM

I suspect the same, R421. Emma goes for extremely bland guys who ping.

The contrast between the two exits in last night's episode was stark. Laura's death was powerful; Emma's exit was so poorly written it was embarrassing. She's dropping everything and running off to Australia with a man she barely knows, shortly after telling him she was involved in his grandad's death? That was the best they could come up with?

Toyah is very forgiving of Imran’s cheating. Is she being a doormat or do you see good things in their future?

R423 I'm sure what Toyah sees is Imran's big hairy cock as her future!

It's a shitshow. I hope Toyah and Imran get hell for what they're doing. Imran should be struck off the rolls as a solicitor. And Toyah should lose her credentials as any type of counselor.

Funny, because I've always thought Toyah actually looks like a doormat.

by Anonymousreply 426April 21, 2022 7:51 PM

Some people think Toyah is only pretending to go along with this so she can screw over Imran. If this is true it would be really stupid. Imran’s not a bad guy and what he did was explainable.

I haven’t watched it for many years. I prefer Buggernation Street on YouTube. They dub old episodes from the 70s with mad plots, and all the residents of the street are sexual perverts trying to outdo each other. My favourite is when widowed barmaid Betty develops a crush on transsexual sexpot Bet Lynch.

I wish Summer had died in that police cell. She's so annoying.

R436 Are they going to kill Emily off? With Spider's return it makes absolutely no sense to claim she is living in Scotland.

Fiz is such an enabler. She was so desperate that she proposed to John while he was in prison for kidnapping the teenager he'd cheated on her with. He killed two people and she's still defending him a decade later. She does the same with Hope - look at how she covered for her after she set fire to Tyrone's flat. It's not John's genes that turned Hope into a demon child, it's Fiz's parenting.

R452 - last year, celebrity agent Melanie Blake said:

[quote] There’s an actor on Coronation Street right now that literally begged a female producer. When she called him in to fire him, he literally begged her on his knees and sobbed hysterically. It was so awful that she actually ended up not firing him – and he’s still on the show to this day. It’s funny because I knew that story and then a few people who I know have read the book and said: ‘Oh, that’s him!

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if this were Antony Cotton. It seems consistent with his public persona. I get the impression that Coronation Street is his dream job, and it's not as though casting directors would be queuing up if he were sacked. He's somehow managed to avoid the axe for the best part of two decades despite being unpopular with the fans. Although the producer in question must be long gone, her successors may wish to avoid a repeat performance.

Uhhh, then don’t call him in, then! Just send Sean’s pathetic ass to London for a “visit” and never bring him back.

No such luck, r456. There's a big storyline coming up involving Sean and his son's return to the cobbles.

I don’t buy the hype it will be a “big storyline,” though. Not if they want to keep their ratings from dipping even further.

Hilarious how his last contract was spun as "a big money deal" when it was only for a year. So yes, they could write him out by the end of 2022 according to this report.

The actor playing Audrey's son is awful! How on Earth did he get the part?

by Anonymousreply 468June 24, 2022 11:47 PM

Jesus, he really is. He got the role years ago because he was an American residing in the UK and Audrey’s son is Canadian.

I can’t get his horrendous line reading of “She’s in a bad way!” out of my head now. And he’s painful to look at, too.

I renember Sue Nicholls refused to do an alcoholism story years ago as she felt it painted older people in a negative light and preferred to keep the character vibrant and not sad.

Guess they talked her around.

by Anonymousreply 470June 25, 2022 6:59 AM

Another reason Sean hasn't been killed off is because of the writer Jonathan Harvey, he had a big part in hiring Anthony as they're good friends and Jonathan has a lot of pull at Coronation Street. Another reason was that Anthony sucked up big time to Tony Warren, the creator who was gay, Tony was very against any ideas of axing one of the few gay characters on the street after years of struggling to get one on screen.

by Anonymousreply 471June 25, 2022 10:48 AM

But he's an awful representation of a gay man and is such a poor actor. When they try to give him a big story he can never pull it off, such as homelessness or being cheated on by the ventriloquist's dummy...
