When we return to Weatherfield for a double-bill of Corrie on Monday 23 December, in the first episode, Kylie drags herself into work, hung-over and looking dreadful.
Leanne tells her to pull her socks up and sort herself out, but Kylie won’t listen. Much to David’s horror, she starts to flirt outrageously with Kal, but Kylie doesn’t stop there and decides to make an announcement…
Elsewhere, after Carla persuades Tina to look after Simon, Peter phones Tina and asks her to meet him in the flat, saying he needs to talk to her about child-minding arrangements…
But what does he really want to speak to her about?
Meanwhile, Roy’s concerned when Hayley tells the chemo nurse that she’s been in a lot of pain and has had to up her dose of painkillers.
And finally, Steve slips out to meet Andrea on the pretext of doing food shopping, and Sally’s put out to learn Rosie won’t be coming home for Christmas.
In the second episode, Kylie continues to rant as Leanne orders her out of the bistro. Gail plays down Kylie’s harsh words to a shocked Sally, but she’s left unconvinced.
Leanne tries to reason with Kylie by telling her how much Nick’s mood swings are already affecting her, and this added stress might make him even worse. But can an angry Kylie be trusted with this information?
Meanwhile, alone in the flat, Peter tries to persuade Tina (and himself) that they should keep their distance from now on…
However, unable to resist each other, they go to kiss, but when they hear a key in the door, spring apart. Realising with horror that Tina has left splodges of paint on Peter’s shirt, he quickly dives into the bedroom.
How will they explain themselves to Carla?
At the café, Hayley and Roy return from her scan, and although she suspects her chemo isn’t working, she’s determined to remain upbeat and enjoy Christmas.
Also, Steve’s friend Andrea turns up at the Rovers and Michelle is instantly jealous, and Sophie announces she’ll be spending Christmas helping out in a soup kitchen.
Here’s a look at this week’s episodes…
