Is Tracy leaving then? I saw her at my local Sainsbury's the other day!

I've been watching about 10 mins of Corrie every other week so I've no idea what's going on. Who's that bloke with Eileen?

Can't remember his name, but he has a very annoying demeanour and a wife with Alzheimer's.

He's Fireman Paul, he was the fireman who was with Molly as she lay under the rubble following the tram crash (he saved baby Jack too, but there's been no mention of this since he's returned in respect of Kevin saying 'Cheers mate' or anything like that... that Kevin, his head's stuck so far up his own arse) and then he returned to the cobbles to free Eileen when she got her head stuck between some railings on her 50th birthday (an action eerily reminiscent of Kevin's ongoing head/arse relationship)

A tentative amour fou began in which we discover Paul is caring for his wife, Lesley, who has Alzheimers, but an icky romance blossoms ickily between Paul and Eileen in which we're supposed to feel sympathy for the pair rather than 'that bloke's a bit creepy' and 'Eileen's well desperate', as I've said already, it's well icky

He lives at 24 Silverdale Lane, Weathefield

The Coronation Street website reveals his likes as 'helping others' and his dislikes as 'hiding the truth'

The actor who plays him was previously Mike Barnes in Hollyoaks who was having it away with a girl half his age, Zoe, who in turn was having it away with his daughter, Sarah, who then died in a parachuting accident (it wasn't an accident), Zoe then has it away with Sarah's killer, Lydia, to get to the truth... which she does and then Mike and Sarah go off travelling together with a young man called Gilly, the suggestion being that they're all going to sex one another but most likely Mike will end up cuckolded but he's probably bang into that and likes to watch, the dreadful old perv

Which makes Paul's current storyline in Corrie sound quite pedestrian and agreeable

Exactly how brilliant was that? Bloody chuffing brilliant, that's how brilliant.

The nice thing, as well, was it was dramatic but not totally over the top (yeah, OK, like E******ers would've been), just sad and messy and hopeful and uncertain (like life is).

I feel sad cos I am genuinely going to miss Becky, and Katherine Kelly, who is amazing and deserves great things and I am afeared she may sink into ITV Sunday night obscurity like Sarah Lancashire before her.

Aw. <3 <3

You're right, though. She's bound to end up in Doc Martin.

I concur with mr bee about this evening's corrie and I also liked the way norris missed out on all the action... that was nice

for some reason and I can find no evidence for it, perhaps it's clairvoyance, isn't katherine kelly getting into musical theatre?

I don't know where I've got this from? lorraine?

That bit when Emily said, "Oh, you don't want to know" and Norris ran out of the shop was brilliant.

Katherine Kelly is going to do She Stoops to Conquer at the National Theatre. Did you notice Ken saying to her, "Would you stoop so low?" at the reception? Eh! Eh! Anyway, I saw a promo photo for that somewhere and she looked *lovely*. I might go see it.

The whole thing was just perfect. I bet Kylie, Roy and Hayley were crying for real. I was.

I was very cross watching the verdict unfold on friday, we both were, snorks especially so

I was so vexed I immediately posted on the coronation street facebook page and then as the second half of the second episode came on worried that I'd posted a massive spoiler and then realised what I'd done (in posting on the coronation street facebook page read by *thousands*) and was rather embarassed

two people had liked my update within six minutes but I didn't let that go to my head and, dear reader, I deleted my post... if I'd left it there I'd have looked like one of those goggy-eyed obsessives who post on the coronation street facebook page rather than somebody relaxed and with it who posts here on the anorak coronation street anorak page (read by tens)

SPOILER ALERT- AVOID THE SMALL PRINT BELOW

and now we've learned that frank is to be muddered and if it's either peter or carla what done it I swear I'm quitting corrie for well at least a week, it's all a bit eastenders... I'm hoping it's his mum, I think that would be a nice resolve to this particular storyline, I just want peter and carla to be together, is that too much to hope for?

Whodunnit? I reckon it's either Frank's mum or new bit of fluff. I think one of them overheard Frank admitting that he raped Carla and attacked him as a result. I don't see how it can be one of the regulars as I don't think they'd leave for any length of time to serve a prison sentence.

Also, surely Leanne can't get custody of Simon? She's only been Simon's "mum" for five minutes and seems to have forgotten about her shady past involving drugs and working as a prostitute. Oh, sorry I forgot that it was a soap for a minute there....
Just be nice to me.

I think there should be a plot where an innocent woman is tried for the crime and wrongly convicted. If we're all being honest, that's a storyline Corrie hasn't really explored sufficiently in the past.

i liked the bit where it turned into an inevitably tedious, drawn-out-for-too-long whodunnit, where we'll all have ceased to care by the time the truth is revealed

corrie used to be the masters of the slow-burning plotline, but since that bloody shelley/charlie storyline, they've become the masters of the endless painful wank plotline that makes you think 'get back to the funny and/or interesting characters please'

I thought last night's episode was really good. It had atmosphere and did that really good thing that the programme does where it has not everyone involved in the BIG DRAMA. Eastenders would have had everyone out in the street worried about it.

It was good, yeah. I did think Peter's drunken rant was a bit clumsily conceived though.

Oooh, I really hate that Frank, he's horrible! That Frank, right, he DOESN'T DESERVE TO LIVE! You know what, I wouldn't mind if he actually turned DEAD! In fact, if someone else who hates him as much as I do but who isn't me happens to KILL HIM in the next ten minutes or, you know, anything like that, please consider me a suspect!
