In the first of a double-bill of episodes on Monday, 13 January, we rejoin the drama as Tony makes a late entrance to Todd’s birthday meal, much to Eileen’s annoyance.
Sean presents Todd with a shirt and Todd makes a point of stripping off, winking at Marcus in the process. He later corners Marcus making it clear he fancies him. Will Marcus be able to resist his charms?
Elsewhere, Tyrone and Kirk return from Suffolk with a van load of strawberries for Hayley. The district nurse delivers a wheelchair for Hayley, but she’s underwhelmed and asks Roy to get it out of her sight…
Roy takes Hayley a bowl of her favourite strawberries, telling her how her friends joined forces to obtain them. Hayley’s touched, but will her appetite elude her?
Meanwhile, Kal clocks Dev eyeing up Stella and reckons he should go for it, but Dev insists they’re just friends. Kal remains sceptical.
And finally, Phelan shows Owen his plans for the mill conversion. Owen admits he’s interested and promises him a firm answer within 24 hours.
In the second episode, after catching Todd and Marcus about to kiss, Eileen is furious with Todd and accuses him of trying to wreck Marcus and Maria’s relationship.
Later, Todd breaks the news to Sean that he only loves him as a friend, but how will Sean react?
Elsewhere, at Emily’s suggestion, the residents help Mary set to turning the strawberries into jam. When Hayley ventures down to the café, will she be overwhelmed to find all her friends there busily making jam?
Meanwhile, Stella compliments Dev on how trim he’s starting to look. Buoyed by her flattery, Dev tells Kal he’d like to re-start his training sessions.
And finally, despite their reservations, Anna and Izzy are now persuaded that Owen and Gary should go ahead with the Phelan project, as it’ll bring in big bucks.
Here’s a look at what’s ahead on Coronation Street…
