And until next week, though she was always suspicious of the story about the robbery, Carla (Alison King) didn’t know for sure that her brother Rob had anything to do with it, however, she’s set to find out, and when she does, it could spell the end of her relationship with her sibling.

Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) is of course currently in turmoil, given that Gary Windass (Mikey North) recently made a pass at her…
Which may not be remarkable or noteworthy ordinarily, but of course, Tina is carrying Gary and Izzy Armstrong’s (Cherylee Houston) baby, so to say things have become awkward would be something of an understatement.
And the situation isn’t being helped by the fact that not only does Tina’s former boyfriend Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) know about Gary’s faux pas, so does Izzy’s sister Katie (Georgia May Foote) who learned about it after her boyfriend Ryan Connor (Sol Heras) overheard Gary and Tina talking about the embarrassing incident.

As fans of Coronation Street will know, Gloria Price (Sue Johnston) told her astounded family this week that she in fact has £80,000 sitting in her bank account, and that being the case, she could – and will – save the Rovers…
Her daughter Stella (Michelle Collins) was forced to put the burned out pub on the market after her insurance company refused to pay out for the fire damage after they learned that the arsonist had keys to the place.
Stella was of course devastated, and to make matter worse, builder Owen Armstrong (Ian Puleston-Davies) threatened to sue her for the thousands he’d shelled out as he began the refurbishment of the iconic pub. Read more & comment »
Coronation Street viewers will know that recently, one of the show’s storylines featured Roy Cropper’s mum Sylvia Goodwin – who’s played by veteran actress Stephanie Cole – unwittingly eating marijuana brownies…
However, once she discovered that the ‘secret ingredient’ was helping her with the pain of arthritis and joint inflammation, she actively sought out the hash cakes, as did her friend, Dennis Tanner, who’s played by Phillip Lowrie.
And it seems the plotline struck a chord with fan John Griffiths, who was reportedly “inspired” to grow marijuana to similarly ease the pain of his arthritis. But unluckily for him, the police cottoned on to what he was doing and arrested him! Read more & comment »
You would be forgiven for thinking that being nominated for no less than FOUR British Soap Awards would be enough to turn any actor’s head, but not so for Corrie star Alan Halsall – who of course plays Tyrone Dobbs – because all he can think about right now are his wife, the gorgeous Lucy-Jo Hudson, and the baby girl they’re expecting in August.
While speaking to the Daily Mirror about being nominated for four gongs – the ceremony airs on ITV on Sunday at 8pm – modest Alan said, “I’m not too comfortable with all that really. I have one standard smile which is like a big grin.
“To be honest, when I get there I just want to get in, get to the bar and have a pint.” Read more & comment »
