So what do we all make of Marcus and Maria now? Think people are being a tad unfair on them. Even Kirk!!!

Loved Steve locking rob in the van.

Looking forward to seeing where the Tina pregnancy thread will go - hope Tommy comes to terms with it all. Loved the happy faces of Izzy and Gary.

ThePlEWhoLovedMe Fri 16-Nov-12 21:02:46

I reckon that Tina will have her scan and find out she is further along in the pregnancy for it be possible to be Izzy's and Gary's !

JiltedJohnsJulie Fri 16-Nov-12 21:09:16

I think that too pie.

TiredBooyhoo Fri 16-Nov-12 21:15:18

did anyone else hear that shit rob refer to the girl he had sex with as a hotel facility?

JiltedJohnsJulie Fri 16-Nov-12 21:39:56

He's such a charmer.

carabos Fri 16-Nov-12 23:05:06

Defo think that there's going to be a big question mark over the actual parentage of Tina's baby. We said weeks ago that we think its tommy's. I reckon that Tina and Owen and Anna are going to realise and conspire to keep the truth from Tommy, Izzy and Gary. It'll all come out in the end of course. <over thinking>.

ThePlEWhoLovedMe Fri 16-Nov-12 23:17:04

oooo Car never thought of that

kenanddreary Sat 17-Nov-12 10:41:25

PIE - that would be a great storyline. Surprised the characters themselves haven't voiced that concern during this whole process.

Rob is vile.

SavoyCabbage Sat 17-Nov-12 10:44:00

I can't bear Gary.

ChocolateCoins Sat 17-Nov-12 11:01:13

I can't stand Gary either.

Pie- that would be a brilliant story line! I love tommy and Tina.

Anyone else fancy steve? blush

Jbck Sat 17-Nov-12 11:37:32

Surely the fertility clinic would have made her take a pg test before implanting the embryo. I know its a soap but come on grin

kenanddreary Sat 17-Nov-12 11:59:30

Chocolate - I don't exactly fancy Steve but I do find him completely hilarious. One of the best characters at the moment.

I love Gary!!

TiredBooyhoo Sat 17-Nov-12 13:14:36

no i cant have steve at all. his terrible comedy acting is awful.

"Surprised the characters themselves haven't voiced that concern during this whole process."

that would give away the shock factor for the audience when it's discovered.

jbck it could have been too early in the pg to tell. there could have been only a few days between conception and the embryo transfer. <overthinking aswell>

Jbck Sat 17-Nov-12 15:57:37

Oh I considered that then I slapped my own face grin

Jbck Sat 17-Nov-12 15:59:16

Plus, if it is only a few days there wont be a 'Whos the daddy' scenario though. Really need to get out more.

TiredBooyhoo Sat 17-Nov-12 16:56:57

hmm good point. maybe there'll be a health issue at birth and the baby will need bone marrow? from a parent but neither izzy or gary will match? or will the baby not match anyway because tina is carrying it? the whole bloody type thing? that'll be the same as tina's wont it? tina's and gary's confused

seriously need to get out more!! grin

TiredBooyhoo Sat 17-Nov-12 16:57:47

blood type not bloody blush

MrsSalvoMontalbano Sat 17-Nov-12 17:14:05

Must admit I did wonder that there seemed to be no issue about Tommy and Tina having sex around the time of conception, or during the early pg you'd think that would have been a key point in the circs.
Also, at he first POAS party, when Tina put the stick down on the sofa I wondered if she might have just put the stick unde tthe tap and not really pee'd on it so it would be negative.
I should also get out more grin

MurielTheActor Sat 17-Nov-12 17:38:05

Totally going to be Tommy's baby. It's a soap - it can't go smoothly grin
Rob's character seemed to do a big turnaround with the 'hotel facility' thing. Great line to show how repellent he is. Now they've sorted the Ryan thing out they need a bad boy and up until last night it hadn't been Rob.
But it sure is now grin

TiredBooyhoo Sat 17-Nov-12 17:54:59

yes muriel, i haven't been watching it alot recently and was surprised when rob was being such a twat. he didn't used to be.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 18-Nov-12 00:34:04

Rob is a waste of space. Vile.
Who fancies Steve Macadoo? pukevomitpuke!
Tina can't be pregnant by Tommy. Surely the medical people would have sussed that out before implanting embryo.

Iheardthatpardon Sun 18-Nov-12 01:03:27

Hah you are all so wrong! Tina will have twins, one hers and.Tommy's, the other Gary and Izzy's. BUT will be handed over as will think are Izzy and Gary's. Then one will be ill and tests will prove not their child. Both babies go back to Tina, then will find other baby not Tina's and eventually all well. Could drag out for ages!

<saunters off whistling corrie theme>

bingowins Sun 18-Nov-12 01:17:12

pardon me but if Tina's twins are ginger she will tell gaz and izzy to keep them.

Iheardthatpardon Sun 18-Nov-12 01:25:20

Hmm I not gingerist, in fact more of gingernut so hope plot does not go that route!
confused

Nancy66 Sun 18-Nov-12 10:32:52

I know it's a soap and anything goes but....isn't it impossible to conceive with your own child when undergoing IVF?

Even as the surrogate Tina would have had to have been given pills to stop her ovulating

That's what I was thinking, that Tina would have had to have some sort of treatment to make her body able to accept the embryo.

Rob has been a bad guy all along to my mind, he has been treating Eva badly for months, trying it on with Stella.

Sleepyfergus Sun 18-Nov-12 10:43:00

Of course it's all been timed horrifically wrongly, babies are usually born at Xmas on soaps!

So what's the Xmas/ new year bombshell going to be do we think? Too early for Tina's 12 week scan....perhaps she'll miscarry?sad

On a desperate note, felt so sorry for Eva. I really wasn't a fan if hers at first, but quite like her now.

Nancy66 Sun 18-Nov-12 10:49:11

is Louis planning something?

kenanddreary Sun 18-Nov-12 13:39:30

Lewis is definitely up to something Nancy. It will certainly affect Gail - he's out for revenge!

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 18-Nov-12 23:58:48

Lewis is a nasty. sly creepfeatures. I don't like Eva at all spoilt, overgrown big baby.

PoppyAmex Mon 19-Nov-12 10:55:50

I'm still 15 episodes behind the current one, but how bizarre is Sally with her new "Life Coach" persona?

So far she had the "talking stick" with Michelle and horrid Ryan and then scolded the physio for using "negative words" grin

kenanddreary Mon 19-Nov-12 18:05:55

Oh Sally always thinks she know best Poppy!

Eva gets on my nerves too - she needs to grow up a bit. Have a horrible feeling she will now try to come between Nick and Leanne - did you see her spying on them on Friday?

MoomieAndFreddie Mon 19-Nov-12 18:11:50

lewis is awful, i feel sorry for audrey, she deserves some happiness

and i don't like eva too, she is like an overgrown whiny teenager - i think she will try and split up nick and leanne as well, but also i think leanne is not very into nick, i think she still loves peter.

and sorry, but the marcus and maria thing is Ridiculous.

<needs to get out more, they are not real> blush

kenanddreary Mon 19-Nov-12 18:33:39

Lol Moomie! Not real no - but beats thinking about work!

You could be right about Leanne - the divorce seems to have affected her quite badly. Will Peter ever come back though?!

MoomieAndFreddie Mon 19-Nov-12 18:47:33

yeah i think he will ken and probably start bouncing between leanne and carla again <yawn>

god it was pathetic when leanne and carla were literally scrapping over him, he is hardly a catch...

PoppyAmex Mon 19-Nov-12 19:37:30

ken I think she'll be reinventing herself as a therapist or life coach very soon. Silly woman.

I can't stand the Peter/Carla/Leanne love triangle; I find them all as bad as each other and couldn't care less about what happens to their characters (including the very annoying Simon; that's horrible isn't it? blush )

Really gripped with Tina's story though, loads of potential there.

Not asking for spoilers, but what do you think will happen in the Xmas episode?

kenanddreary Mon 19-Nov-12 20:08:49

No idea Poppy! Quite a few possibilities though...Tina/Tommy, Eva/Leanne/Nick/Peter, Lewis/Gail/Audrey...oh just thought! How about a big story to do with Kirsty/Tyrone? That would be well timed for Xmas. I would love to see Tyrone get together with Fizz.

I quite like little Simon but detest Peter and Carla. Quite right Moomie - Peter is no catch.

BTW - have to say I really hate the way Eva carries her handbag angry

MeDented Mon 19-Nov-12 20:19:36

And Eva's red dress with black bra on show was spectacularly awful - why didn't her mother tell her! Even my 11 year old DD agreed.

kenanddreary Mon 19-Nov-12 20:24:33

Yes - awful MeDented - and that hair! Was looking like a drag wig this evening.

MurielTheActor Mon 19-Nov-12 23:09:05

But at least with Eva she's all up front (as it were hmm )
Leanne goes from crazy arson bitch to holier than thou mother figure - she's all over the shop - absolutely no consistency to her character at all. She is the one character I find truly irritating.
Enjoying the Eva/Kylie friendship though smile
I think we're heading for a big Tyrone/Kirsty crisis (as if it could get any worse....)

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Mon 19-Nov-12 23:10:43

I hate, hate, hate Eva!!! Fooking conniving, spoilt , selfish trollope. Same goes for that plattwife. Nick is a gullible fool.
Oh how I would love to see Tyrone and Fizz get together for xmas and live happily ever after. But I get the feeling it's going to be doom land for corries Tyrone over the festive period. More misery and abuse from nastyknickers.
I hope Carla and Peter never return to Corrie. What a boring pair they are. I like little Simon though. He is a cutie.
I think Audrey is in for a rotten xmas too thanks to leachyLewis.

LightHousekeeping Mon 19-Nov-12 23:14:39

I can see Kylie getting off with Nick and Sophie with Lloyds daughter.

I'm gagging to know how the Tyrone storyline will go. Kirsty is just vile.

LightHousekeeping Mon 19-Nov-12 23:15:48

I also wonder whether Lewis might make a play for Gail?

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Mon 19-Nov-12 23:23:20

Oh no. Lewis and Gail? Surely she wouldn't do that to Audrey. That cretin Lewis would. Was he in on a scam with that woman who took 10k off Audrey? 5k each? I saw he scammed money over a watch.

LightHousekeeping Mon 19-Nov-12 23:24:56

I think he would for some kind of revenge. She's all over him at the moment.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Mon 19-Nov-12 23:29:17

I don't like Gail at the best of times but doing that to her mother? Awful but now you say it I can see it happening. Poor Audrey.

kenanddreary Tue 20-Nov-12 10:40:20

Oh Lighthouse - the thought of Lewis with Gail! grin Not a good thought over breakfast! But what a great storyline.

I'm thinking that Lloyd's daughter will get together with Kevin. But that will make me sad because I'm really hoping he will get back together with Sally.

MoomieAndFreddie Tue 20-Nov-12 11:00:08

Ooh I hope tyrone and fizz get together

kirsty is vile, proper evil sad

PoppyAmex Tue 20-Nov-12 13:02:00

Right, I'm almost up to date - just watched the episode where Jason hits Marcus and thought it was really shocking!

Hated Sean in that episode, he was just vile and behaved really horribly didn't he?

Ken I would love to see Tyrone and Fizz end up together in a cosy little family with both babies.

As for Gail, is it me or is she really starting to go all doe-eyed with Lewis?

kenanddreary Tue 20-Nov-12 15:17:14

Poppy - you must have had a marathon TV session! I love it when I have loads of Corries saved up.

Yes - Sean was horrible in that episode and I think it portrayed Jason in a different light too. That level of violence was uncalled for.

Gail definitely going doe-eyed. She's had terrible luck with men hasn't she?

sensesworkingovertime Tue 20-Nov-12 16:21:28

Has anyone mentioned the utter unreality of Kirsty being 'promoted' from packing to stand-in boss? I nearly laughed out loud. But why shoud be surprised, afterall we've got Rob -straight out of t'nick (prison that is not Nick Tilsley) thinking he's Alan Sugar and Michelle, six months ago a singer/barmaid now boss of t'factory. Kirsty needs to get her come-uppance big time. She's lower that a snake's belly.

The trouble with Corrie frequently is that the characters change so much you never get the chance to sympathise with any of them e.g Leanne was utterly nasty to Eva but you end up not rooting for either of them because they both do the dirty

PoppyAmex Tue 20-Nov-12 17:22:58

ken yes it was! DD is ignoring me, obsessed with trying to crawl and I had mountains of ironing (depressing), so the gigantic "omnibus" made it easier. grin

senses you are so right, I think in an effort to make the characters less one-dimensional (snort) they're all unrecognisable.

Some really bad acting too - that Aidan guy being a major culprit!

ken finally noticed the way Eva holds her handbag, must say it didn't annoy me as much as her various head adornments do! grin

MrsSalvoMontalbano Tue 20-Nov-12 17:31:09

Totally unrealistic
- Eva's immaculate eye makeup, after the trauma of seeing her fella with another girl follwoed by a lonely train-ride back from Sheffield
- Michelle's immaculate eyemakeup after - presumably- a passionate session in bed with Steve
- Robs appearance back at the rovers - wasn't he earlier supposd to be too drunk to drive

theliverpoolone Tue 20-Nov-12 18:50:53

Does Hayley not work in the factory any more? She used to be the supervisor.

Sleepyfergus Tue 20-Nov-12 18:57:45

Hayley's in the states looking after her MIL or her MILs partner, I forget which one exactly! Roy came back on his tod a couple if weeks back.

kenanddreary Tue 20-Nov-12 19:11:55

Poppy - hope you had some biscuits to go with that marathon session!

Yes - some parts are unrealistic but I suppose that's the land of soaps - needs to be some poetic license for it to work - certainly not that much going on in my street grin. Still my favourite soap though - and far funnier than EE.

MrsSalvoMontalbano Tue 20-Nov-12 20:04:04

yes agree, it knocks the socks off other soaps - I am being picky grin definitley prefer the odd bit of non-continuity to the humourlessness of other soaps - and I should be grateful for itvplayer, because the tv in our house is always monoplised by various of my DC, whilst my (work hmm) laptop is mine, all mine grin

I agree, despite a lot of shortcomings it is by far the best British soap, the good bits more than outweigh the bad. It has been a lot better recently due to the absence of Carla, Peter, Dev, Sunita and Carl.

theliverpoolone Tue 20-Nov-12 20:54:49

Oh yes, I forgot Hayley had stayed in America. Great that these jobs can give such long leave so easily at short notice.... hmm

sensesworkingovertime Tue 20-Nov-12 22:02:41

Mrs Salvo, well spotted girlfriend (if I may be so familiar). Yes the eye make-up and not a hair out of place, she must keep a brush handy after doing her jiggy jiggys with Steve. Not to mention Eva, I've only got to cry for a couple of minutes to look like a wreck for the next 12 hours with Dracula eyes and a pasty face.

Glad somebody reminded me of Aiden (well, not glad cos he was so awful) but glad in the context of Corrie-talk. He was repulsive and wooden to put it mildly, no wonder Marcus started batting for the other team, so to speak. Aiden can go and bore the pants of London now.

Lozario Tue 20-Nov-12 22:42:22

Oh here you all are! The last thread filled up and I felt I was standing in a desert of tumbleweed all of a sudden. Now I'm back in your collective Corrie-loving bosom grin

I have known a few Kirsty-types in my lifetime, she's eerily familiar! Think she does it well because I'm always on edge that Tyrone is gonna get a thump. Think she will deck Fizz or something in public then that will be it and also Tyrone will then realise his feelings for Fizz.

All I can think when watching the surrogate storyline is TINA WILL YOU TAKE IT EASY WITH THE FECKING FAKE TAN and Tommy is as cute as a puppy dog

What the hell is Nigel Havers going to do to Gail??!!

Poor Nick sad

still fancy Rob a bit despite his behaviour

LightHousekeeping Tue 20-Nov-12 23:28:14

I think he will seduce gayle

Gail is so stupid, insensitive and self absorbed she deserves everything she gets. I do feel sorry for Audrey though.

kenanddreary Wed 21-Nov-12 11:38:40

As much as I would love to see Fizz and Tyrone get together with the babies, there is one major problem. Kirsty has refused to put Tyrone on the birth certificate so officially he is not the father. She used this as a threat against him. I had completely forgotten!

So we need to find a way around this. Perhaps Kirsty could do something for which she gets arrested and put into prison so that she is out of the way. But would Tyrone get custody of Ruby?! I am worrying about this far too much grin.

carabos Wed 21-Nov-12 12:23:54

Hope for Lewis's sake that he doesn't get too tangled up with the multi-widowed Gail - he'll end up dead if he does grin.

Sleepyfergus Wed 21-Nov-12 12:45:49

If it did come to a custody battle for Ruby, can Tyrone insist on a DNA test to prove paternity? I dunno about stuff like that! But yes, like the idea of Tyrone and Fizz getting together. Think Kirsty needs to take a wall alongside the canal or near a team track and meet with an accident.....

kenanddreary Wed 21-Nov-12 13:27:15

I don't know Sleepy and it's really worrying me! grin

Kirsty is so completely vile - I really want everyone on the street to find out about her and know what she's really like. And then to apologise to Tina and Tommy for not believing them when they first told everyone.

Sleepyfergus Wed 21-Nov-12 18:12:21

Wall = walk
Team = Tram

Bloomin' autocorrect angry

kenanddreary Wed 21-Nov-12 19:52:07

Hour long episode! Hurrah!

sensesworkingovertime Wed 21-Nov-12 19:56:29

The Lewis/Gail thing - going off past form of Gails fellas, if he becomes entangled with Gail it's sure fire way of ending up dead meat or a raving pyshco, or both. Why is Gail not a tad suss of someone who hated her last week now buttering up to her like a tub of Lurpak?

What the heck has Eva The Cleavage got up her sleeve for loving half -sister Leanne?? I'm rubbish at guessing so all ideas gratefully received.

Kirsty - not exactly Columbo is she? Durr-brain, did she not realise that a MOTHER and baby group would be full of mothers i.e. women. She looked genuinely surprised when she discovered that Tyrone was surrounded by the opposite sex at Tiny Tikes or whatever it's called.

kenanddreary Wed 21-Nov-12 20:04:08

I know senses - it's Super Tikes - hardly a den of iniquity!

But she is pure eeeeeeevil - that incident with the sewing machine - horrible!

kenanddreary Wed 21-Nov-12 20:07:22

Did you see Sean's reaction? What a wuss!

Think Eva is trying to get Nick back senses.

sensesworkingovertime Wed 21-Nov-12 20:16:18

Yes Ken, I just wonder how she is going to do it, so far she is a one trick pony, the trick being the double D's and the see-through dress.

squoosh Wed 21-Nov-12 20:24:02

Can I just say, the guy who plays Nick is the worst actor ever. Bloody awful.

sailorsgal Wed 21-Nov-12 20:25:17

How old is little Max?? 6?? He gets 30 spellings. Ds is about the same age and gets 10. hmm

IAmSoFuckingRock Wed 21-Nov-12 20:31:01

i think i remember tyrone investigating at the time and finding out that he could apply for a court ordered DNA test to be done but that kirsty would have to give consent for it to happen (what's the point of a court ordering it then? confused)

what happened to fiz's finger?

ledkr Wed 21-Nov-12 21:17:50

In reality if Tyrone can prove dc then child protection peeps would not allow her to live with ruby and as her main carer Tyrone would probably get residency and even if no proof of paternity could apply for special guardianship. I think grin

Sleepyfergus Wed 21-Nov-12 21:34:48

Hold the bus.....wtf is going on with Max's hair? Has he been going to the Michelle Connor School of Shiny, Swingy Curtain Hairdos? It's like a blonde helmet!

ledkr Wed 21-Nov-12 21:39:04

Sure I just saw max in an ikea advert

The Nick-Leanne proposal was exactly the same set-up as the Ryan-Tracey one a few weeks ago. Only diference being that I wanted to see Tracey humiliated 100%, whereas I'm a bit torn with the current storyline because I can't decide which of Eva and Leanne I would most like to see humiliated.

WTf was Kirk doing in the Isle of Wight? He may not be the brightest card in the pack but you really can't go there by mistake.

PoppyAmex Thu 22-Nov-12 13:38:22

OK up to date now.

Eva's red dress/black bra combo! Along with the disastrous make-up, it was just terrible, wasn't it?

I'm actually tense watching Kirsty/Tyrone scenes now, I keep waiting for her to lash out.

Feeling sorry for Nick now, but I distinctly remember hating him last year for making Peter drink and now I can't stand Pete!

It would be nice if the screenwriters would allow us to hold on to our pet hates/loves.

kenanddreary Thu 22-Nov-12 17:46:51

Poppy - Kirsty/Tyrone scenes are amazing. Think they are both acting out the domestic abuse so well. Kirsty is actually visibly shaking when she gets annoyed. Poor Tyrone looks completely terrified and is walking on eggshells. Where will it end?

Ledkr - hope you're right about guardianship.

Whoknows - I have no idea!! That's a really long way and would have taken him hours!

Hours plus a ferry that costs a fortune.

I agree, Kirsty and Tyrone are riveting, I haven't always thought Kirsty was very well acted, she started out as a pantomime villain with the feud with Tina but has really stepped it up now, you can feel the tension ramping up.

Lozario Thu 22-Nov-12 20:25:41

Totally agree about Kirsty, I find her properly scary now! Poor Fizz looked terrified too but she's had lots of practise with Stape!

Are Kev and the physiotherapist going to get it on?

MoomieAndFreddie Thu 22-Nov-12 21:11:08

just caught up from last night

omg kirstehh really is a proper psycho - poor tyrone, he is terrified of her but i really think he is falling out of love with her now, he is just scared of losing ruby

i loved the dirty look angela gave her when she turned up at her dds party grin

PoppyAmex Thu 22-Nov-12 21:28:38

Moomie I saw that too and wondered why, as I don't think Angela knows about the Kirsty situation?

Maybe she fancies Ty?

Me too, that's exactly what I was thinking Poppy. Considering he had only been once, the texts and invitations started flowing pretty quickly I thought.

Viviennemary Thu 22-Nov-12 21:36:02

I think Marcus will realise that he is gay after all and will leave Maria. I wonder what will happen with Kirsty. Tyrone is just so feeble. I want to shout at him!

Sleepyfergus Thu 22-Nov-12 21:38:25

Yep, I noticed it too. Thought it was a bit odd as surely it's supposed to be Kirsty who's being paranoid whereas the filthy look Angela gave her, well, I'd be tempted to be a bit arsey back to her too if I were Kirsty!

beeny Thu 22-Nov-12 21:42:54

Where did she buy that red dress from?!

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 22-Nov-12 22:25:34

I hate to see Tyrone being treated like this. He went through all that crap with Molly and now this.
Did you see the smirk on Kirsty's face after Fizz screamed out in pain after the sewing machine needle went through her finger? How could she do something so wicked? I hope she is reported to the authorities soon. Nasty piece of work. Will she hurt baby Ruby to get at Tyrone in her sick twisted way?

MurielTheActor Fri 23-Nov-12 09:22:02

Bit out of character, I thought, for Kirsty to get all Annie Wilkes from Misery on us.
Up to now her failing has been her temper and lashing out and hitting and throwing which was all very scary and very believable. If she's now going to get all planning evil acts on us, I mean Fizz hmm, then she really does become pantomime villain and will probably end up dead in some dramatic scene. I know it's a soap but the DV story has been truthfully played and it would be a shame to change it.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 09:41:53

i agree muriel i would like to see them 'complete' the dv storyline without a dramatic murder or anything. i want to see tyrone going to the police and see it dealt with properly. in fact if anything i wish they'd done it as a male on female DV story to reflect what is more common in RL. i dont think it's done any favours for RL female victims.

PoppyAmex Fri 23-Nov-12 09:43:21

I agree Muriel - I thought it was such a great storyline, especially because of her father's abuse history. It was really well done, in the sense she hated her dad for what he did but found herself repeating the behaviours.

If she turns psycho that part of the story will go kaput which would be a shame.

LightHousekeeping Fri 23-Nov-12 11:10:42

I think it was right to show it as female on male, we know its often hidden and on the rise.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 11:53:17

male on female is also hidden and on the rise. it is also far more common than female on male. mightn't get as high viewing figures/coffee machine convos though sad

squoosh Fri 23-Nov-12 12:00:40

In fairness to Corrie they've dealt with male on female dv before with Shelley and her fiance Charlie. That was quite a long running storyline.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 12:11:02

that's true squoosh.

Female on male in the end though for Charlie.

I think this storyline is very good, one of the few that hasn't had me saying oh no not this again lately. I would like to see it end well though with Tyrone getting out before he or Ruby get hurt and Kirsty getting treatment but leaving the show. They could make more of the fact that is is even harder for men to get help than women and how he has put walked into a vulnerable position by not working when he isn't married to his baby's mother, especially given the lack of name on the birth certificate. Lucky he owns his own home though, presumably he owns it outright?

squoosh Fri 23-Nov-12 12:30:05

Oh yeah! Forgot he was murdered by Tracey. Isn't it weird that her criminal record is never mentioned by anyone??

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 12:45:51

i'd like to see kirsty stay but face the full consequences. and yes, highlight the difficulties faced when names not on BC and not working bit caring for baby etc. but i would like them show what actually happens to kirsty in relation to how it affects her right to live with /see her child as a result of her violence. i wouldn't want to see her just get arrested then disappear. soaps do that too often. i think they should show the fallout from it all.

Yes, I would like to see Tyrone gain full custody of Ruby, perhaps Kirsty be subjected to an injunction to stay away from them, made to pay maintenance but once Tyrone is happily married to Fiz she can disappear, I don't want her having a personality transplant and turning into a long term treasure.

It might be good drama if Tyrone escapes, then someone new comes along and she does the same thing again with everyone knowing this time what she's like, yet once again powerless to help.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 17:40:17

" then someone new comes along and she does the same thing again with everyone knowing this time what she's like, yet once again powerless to help. "

that would actually be quite a good representation of RL abuser patterns.

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 19:49:06

Leanne's jeans!! grin

Poor Fizz - how will she ever get anyone to believe her? sad

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 19:51:59

BTW - maybe David couldn't grow a moustache for Movember so he has drawn one on instead. grin

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:19:07

i thought the same about those jeans! what is going on there?

grin @ david's fake movember tribute!

i think fiz will be the one who brings kirsty down.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:19:45

all that stuff with stape has put a bit of fight in her.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Fri 23-Nov-12 20:28:05

I love Corrie! Think it's obvious now that Sopgie is after the physio woman, Lloyd's DD. It was hilarious how she carefully and deliberately mentioned she was single and specifically mentioned her ex girlfriend's name grin.

I love the Kirsty storyline. Think she'll manage to get the police on her side too, and make Fizz look like an idiot. I reckon it'll all come to a head on Christmas Day, it's all building up nicely for it.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:31:44

jenna? yes defintley making a play for her.

LightHousekeeping Fri 23-Nov-12 20:31:48

I knew thats where the Sophie storyline would be going although, its bound not to be straight forward.

I dont want Kylie to have a baby for afew years she's just coming into herself. Does that Sarah Lou care about her family anymore? she hasnt visited for years.

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 20:33:57

Yep - think it will have to be up to Fizz Iam - although she could find an ally in Tina if she gives it some thought and remembers that T & T were saying the same thing about Kirsty a couple of months ago.

But agree Soft - it will run for a while yet...

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 20:36:17

Sarah-Lou is living with Kevin's sister, Peter, Carla, Ken's various offspring, Michelle's real son, David Platt's dad and anyone else who has left the street and no longer appears to think about their family grin

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:42:05

grin

i didn't know kevin had a sister. was it years and years ago?

squoosh Fri 23-Nov-12 20:42:19

What's the bet the Kirsty/Fiz/Tyrone situation will come to a head on Christmas Day? I know you're thinking 'oh but Christmas Day is always so peaceful in Soap Land' . . . .

Why is it that babies are always born on Christmas Day in soaps?

squoosh Fri 23-Nov-12 20:43:53

Remember about 10 years ago when Kevin had a wife/partner and a baby son and they were both killed in a car crash? Don't think he's mentioned them since, cold bastard! grin

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:44:37

xmas day is never peaceful in soapland! but yes i agree, it will all happen (whatever the 'all' is) on xmas day.

squoosh Fri 23-Nov-12 20:45:05

blush

Just noticed that SoftKittyWarmKitty got in before me with the Xmas Day predictions!

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:45:12

alison?

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:45:41

was the baby called jamie?

squoosh Fri 23-Nov-12 20:46:17

Christmas Day is the most dangerous day of the year in Soap Land. Murder rate spikes something shocking!

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 20:51:15

Oh yeah squoosh! I forgot about Alison and the baby. Didn't Alison run in front of a lorry? Didn't the baby die and Alison was struggling to cope so she killed herself?

Yes Iam - Kevin has a sister and it really was years and years ago! Makes me realise just how long I have been watching Corrie...I feel old!! She left and never came back for a visit - even after his various children were born. Sally also has a sister and she doesn't seem to call round either grin

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:53:57

i vaguely remember a lorry! yes. i think she had PND. but not sure.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 20:54:33

ooh!!! it's all happening!!

Kristy literally scares me witless

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 21:02:47

what's tyrone's next move? he cant leave with the baby as she will have the police round to take her back and he has no rights without name on BC. can he change the locks? he still wouldn't get to keep the baby though woudl he?

The only way he would get to keep the baby if they were sticking to real life scenario would be if they were married. Can't see that happening though, don't like this story line she puts me on edge

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 21:10:21

shock - so exciting!

Know what you mean Waiting - but it is a sign of a good storyline and script writing if it is keeping you on edge grin

Really can't predict where this one is going - not going to be easy to solve with little baby Ruby involved.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 21:13:47

i know!

he tricks her into putting his name on BC. he pretends he believes her and that all is well, fiz plays along and drops the charges, then she puts his name on and tyrone goes in secret to see a solicitor and get more advice and in the meantime fiz provokes her in public and the police come and drag her away!

<bows>

SwedishEdith Fri 23-Nov-12 21:15:27

Alison was in Casuality the other week - still really drippy

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 21:16:17

Wow Iam!! Impressed here!

Are you a secret Corrie script-writer? grin

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 21:20:07

grin

if i was i would make sure all those forgotten relatives start visiting their brothers and sisters now and again!

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 21:22:33

grin Iam

BTW - does anyone else love the Meerkat corrie band or is that just me?!

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 21:24:02

Swedish - I noticed Alison too. Yes - she does seem to get typecast as a drip poor thing.

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 21:26:57

meerkat corrie band? confused

what's this? where?

SoftKittyWarmKitty Fri 23-Nov-12 21:36:35

I think Tyrone will have to box clever from now on. He can't keep hiding his head in the sand about Kirsty now he's witnessed her being violent to Fizz but he can't be on Fizz's side because Kirsty would just up and leave with Ruby who probably isn't even his anyway. He needs to get a free half hour appointment with a solicitor to get advice on how he can get his name on the BC or apply for PR. <over thinking>

I reckon Kylie will keep taking the pill so she doesn't get pg.

kenanddreary Fri 23-Nov-12 21:41:56

Lol!! The meerkat corrie band were on during the commercial breaks this evening! Basically - meerkats playing the corrie theme. Not sure why! Hilarious grin

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 21:42:44

i agree about the kylie thing.

post on relationships board: "scared dad needs advice"
my partner has been violent and i'm scared for our DD. i've just witnessed her threatening my friend and i dont know what to do. we live together but my name isn't on BC as she went behind my back sadangry any advice?

IAmSoFuckingRock :leave the bastard

what would we all say to tyrone if he posted here? (apart from the obvious LTB)

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 21:43:42

i didn't notice them ken! i'll look out for them on monday.

Viviennemary Fri 23-Nov-12 22:05:10

I think the person who plays Kirsty is a really good actress. She is really so unbelievably evil! Come on Tyrone do the right thing. grin

sweetkitty Fri 23-Nov-12 22:05:38

Tyrone should play along with Kirsty ask her to marry him to get full parental rights, I reckon Kirsty is going to die in some over the top plot. Baddies always die on over the top plots.

Wish Nick and Leanne would just bugger off and Eva as well.

And who cares about Lloyd, that woman he's with and their daughters?

IAmSoFuckingRock Fri 23-Nov-12 22:13:32

was the woman who plays jenna in something else years ago? i get the feeling i recognise her.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Fri 23-Nov-12 23:12:41

Poor Fizz. Kirsty is one scary moma. Tyrone has got to see sense now and report her to authorities. Fiz should move in with Tyrone and they should take charge of the situation starting with changing the doorlock. Tyrone can't trust Kirsty and I think he needs to do a DNA test. I hope Ruby is his but what about Kirsty's mysterious brother? Actually was he her brother? The guy who turned up with a flashy red car? Supposed to be a birthday treat for Tyrone.

Luvved the Meercat corrie tune. smile

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Fri 23-Nov-12 23:18:48

Nooo, Kirsty can't die in an over the top plot sweetkitty. That would be Molly all over again. A long prison sentence far, far away is what she should get.

Iheardthatpardon Sat 24-Nov-12 00:35:26

Ooh I just had a thought: What if Ruby isn't Tyrone's after all (that's reason why Kirsty didn't put him on the BC). Ty has DNA test done secretly and finds out but keeps it quiet!

Viviennemary Sat 24-Nov-12 01:14:29

I have wondered for a while if the next thing will be Ruby isn't Tyrone's baby. And I think Tyrone will end up with Fizz. I think when he was first in the series he was going out with Maria. But can't see those two getting back together. I thought too that they might kill Kirsty off. She's a villain but a lot better character than the boring pantomime witch Tracey Barlow.

IAmSoFuckingRock Sat 24-Nov-12 02:58:20

totally agree. tracey barlow is so played out. there really isn't much more she can do that will surprise anyone.

Monty27 Sat 24-Nov-12 03:05:57

Meeeeerkats thing is brilliantsmile

But somebody will die at xmas....

kenanddreary Sat 24-Nov-12 10:35:38

So glad it's not just me who loves the Meerkat band! grin

Think (hope) Ruby is definitely Tyrone's baby.

Whatthe - had forgotten about the man with the car. Can't remember much about that at all. Hopefully someone will be able to remind me!

kenanddreary Sat 24-Nov-12 10:46:17

Ok - it was bugging me so much that I just had to google. Sad I know!! grin.

Anyway - the mysterious man was her cousin who turned up with a car so Tyrone could go for a drive for his birthday....or something like that.

Now I really don't think about Corrie all the time wink so off to do some Christmas shopping now.

Wingedharpy Sat 24-Nov-12 14:46:48

IASFRock - Jenna was in an episode of Law and Order UK in 2010 - maybe that's where you know her from?
Funny, but I have the same feeling about Mandy. I keep thinking it was brookside but who knows?

ivykaty44 Sat 24-Nov-12 15:00:37

Bit out of character, I thought, for Kirsty to get all Annie Wilkes from Misery on us.

But she was like this with Tina - she did things on purpose to Tina as she thought Tina would steal Tyrone from her, so used her job int he police to get at Tina. That lost her the police job in the end so you would think she would learn.

ivykaty44 Sat 24-Nov-12 15:06:25

She was in Eastenders back in the early 90's

Sleepyfergus Sat 24-Nov-12 15:38:17

Right, I've finally caught up with Corrie so I can join in again. Was watching the number of posts jump up but didn't want to ruin the surprise of watching it.

Wasn't it good?! Kirsty is so evil. What a great actress and character. Agreed that she beats Tracy hands down. I hope they don't kill her off, that would be too easy and neat but I'm not sure how its going to play out. Glad Ty has witnessed just how off the bus she is though.

Yawn with the Nick & Leanne engagement and the 'I'm a lesbian and fancy you' storyline. Do we think Jenna is or isn't? I think she's twigged Soph is though (hard not too)

Now I've been watching Corrie for years (i remember when Gail and Brian were dating for gods sakes) and I totally don't recall Kevs Alison and the baby? Ongoing to have to google that to jog the memory.

IAmSoFuckingRock Sat 24-Nov-12 15:46:40

i have something telling me mandy was in a children's programme. cant think what though.

IAmSoFuckingRock Sat 24-Nov-12 15:48:46

alison had baby jake who died only a few hours old after getting an infection from alison (i think!) she then went on to kidnap baby bethany platt before getting knocked down by a lorry.

Sleepyfergus Sat 24-Nov-12 15:49:34

Iam are you thinking it was Tikkabilla? Not sure if it is her or not but its bugging me too. Need to do a bit of wiki investigating.

IAmSoFuckingRock Sat 24-Nov-12 15:54:22

me too. off to google! grin

Sleepyfergus Sat 24-Nov-12 16:03:49

Hmmm. Nothing madly exciting. Her real name is Pamela Nomvete and can't see her doing any kids stuff.

But, interestingly enough, she is one of 10 characters rumoured to be culled from Corrie although bosses have denied it. Other names mentioned were Izzy, Rob, Carl and Marcus. Reckon the bosses have been reading these threads....?wink

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 24-Nov-12 16:07:51

All those characters could go for me wouldn't miss any, think the scriptwriters could have done do much more with Izzy

Lozario Sat 24-Nov-12 19:47:51

I would slightly miss Rob because he's funny (honest, that's the reason) but the others could go and I wouldn't care. Sunita could disappear too if I'm honest - think I read somewhere that she's leaving next year but that might be conjecture (sp?!).

Isn't the new little Liam so much better though? Maria could go for me too actually. Whingy mare.

I think it is Max in the Ikea ad, saw it last night.

kenanddreary Sat 24-Nov-12 19:59:03

Fantastic memory Iam! Forgot about the baby Platt thing.

I have also been watching Corrie a long time - since mid 70's...so hard to keep all the facts in my head!

I used to love it when 'Gold' showed old episodes of Corrie. Wow - I really do need to get out more grin

Actually - I am still interested in Sunita/Carl because I am looking forward to seeing what he decides to do. He obviously isn't into her at all. Could develop into quite a good storyline.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 24-Nov-12 20:01:29

Has Lewis gone forever?

kenanddreary Sat 24-Nov-12 20:03:18

No he's still around - he was in it last night. There's more to come there!

Lozario Sat 24-Nov-12 20:08:42

Loved it when he did goodbye rant at Gloria. A gigolo scorned..!

Sleepyfergus Sat 24-Nov-12 20:09:19

Where are Sunita/Carl and the twins Aldi & Lidl?? Not been seen for weeks?! Are they away or in the cupboard with the other missing peeps?

I wonder if Sunita will wise up to Carl, although how she's not sussed that he's just not that into her god only knows. Perhaps she and Stella will get together and give him his marching orders out of town?

I actually think we should keep Rob, he's easy on the eye and I quite like him in the factory with all the 'girls'

Although, has anyone else noticed, he has an odd shaped head!

LightHousekeeping Sat 24-Nov-12 20:35:56

When he gets between Gayles satin sheets just remember, it was me who said it first smile

I would like Rob to stay because hes easy on the eye. Id quite like to see the back of Michelle if Im honest.

Lozario Sat 24-Nov-12 20:36:12

Ha ha no but I shall have an even CLOSER look at him on Monday eve!!

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 24-Nov-12 20:40:03

Sunita used to be a good character back in the day. The vampy sex mad Sunita was just ridiculous

Sleepyfergus Sat 24-Nov-12 21:03:58

Okay, been wracking my brains trying to think who or what Rob reminds me of.....and it's one of those Easter Island head statue thingys.

Take a look on Monday, Rob has a funny slantly, flat head!

http://www.marksmart.net/bands/iconoclast/longerworks/island/island.html

squoosh Sat 24-Nov-12 21:10:42

HE DOES HAVE A FUNNY HEAD!

I thought it was his hair but maybe it's his skull.

Sleepyfergus Sat 24-Nov-12 22:01:25

Yay Squoosh, another who has noticed!!

And here is my link correctly added this time blush

www.marksmart.net/bands/iconoclast/longerworks/island/island.html

IAmSoFuckingRock Sat 24-Nov-12 22:54:56

i didn't remember- i googled and found it all on corriepedia or something similar grin

yes where hav sunita and carl been??

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sat 24-Nov-12 23:07:15

Hoping Sunita and Carl don't come back. Boring.
Rob can bugger off too.
Gail and Lewis? That just cannot happen. No, no, no!

MoomieAndFreddie Mon 26-Nov-12 10:16:09

yeah where ARE sunita and karl?

and sunita and dev's kids confused

IAmSoFuckingRock Mon 26-Nov-12 19:36:55

shock

she's locked him in the house!

SoftKittyWarmKitty Mon 26-Nov-12 19:37:03

Tonight's episode is setting up to be a good one. Can't believe Kirsty has locked Ty and the baby in the house!

LeeCoakley Mon 26-Nov-12 19:39:02

Ty - you CAN'T allow the situation to go on any longer! Not after THIS!

IAmSoFuckingRock Mon 26-Nov-12 19:45:07

this happened to a friend of mine but it was completely accidental on her DH's behalf. bloody nightmare for her though trying to get 3 under 5s and a newborn + pram out through the living room window to do the school run.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Mon 26-Nov-12 19:46:10

He needs to call a locksmith, get the locks changed and march over to the factory. Kirsty's face would be a picture. Or he should ring the factory office and get Michelle to announce to the whole place that she's locked them in, so she has to go and unlock the door.

Sadly, none of that will happen. I think she's going to go mad at him when she gets home from work as she'll have looked through his phone.

IAmSoFuckingRock Mon 26-Nov-12 19:52:56

shock

<scary>

she's taking his phone off him!! just like that. that's how it happens. sad

SoftKittyWarmKitty Mon 26-Nov-12 19:55:57

She's such a good actress. So believable.

Can't remember who upthread said Lewis and Gail would get together but you're right I reckon.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Mon 26-Nov-12 19:57:03

Ty should set up a camcorder in that little dining room so he can show the police.

oh myy poor Tyrone sad

(I know i'm not part of convo)

thenightsky Mon 26-Nov-12 19:58:34

Poor Tyrone sad

IAmSoFuckingRock Mon 26-Nov-12 19:59:05

they are being very true to RL aren't they. ty thinking there is no way out even though he has fiz support and know's it's wrong.

SwedishEdith Mon 26-Nov-12 20:00:55

That was chilling. How is this going to end?

AmIthatScary Mon 26-Nov-12 20:01:37

Neither am I, but that was awful sad and angry

Ty, you need to get rid.

kenanddreary Mon 26-Nov-12 20:03:29

Oh that was horrible. I was on edge all the way through...really thought she was going to attack him with that iron. Amazing acting.

Have to say though - really gutted they didn't show the Meerkat Corrie Band! sad

kenanddreary Mon 26-Nov-12 20:04:31

Iam - I agree - I can imagine this story happening in RL.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Mon 26-Nov-12 20:45:35

Poor Tyrone. He's not been lucky in love so I really hope the script writers give him a break after this storyline is finished and Kirsty's in prison.

LeeCoakley Mon 26-Nov-12 21:29:00

I was waiting for the second episode tonight and I'm a Celeb came on. There never seems to be firm times for Corrie!

Lewis is playing Gail, did you see his face as she went off after doing that girly laugh at him?

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 26-Nov-12 21:39:40

Poor poor Tyrone , that was chilling.

theliverpoolone Mon 26-Nov-12 22:44:07

I know Tina's got her own storyline going on , but I wish they'd remember how she was the only one supporting Tyrone at one point, and hates Kirstie, and get her involved in helping Fizz help Ty.

LarkinSky Mon 26-Nov-12 23:09:34

What a scary scene, Kirsty hitting and kicking Ty in the stomach like that. Brutal.

I almost wished he'd fought her off - that would have been justified in self defense surely? Or not because she's a woman, or because she's stronger and more aggressive than Ty could be, even in self defence?

Moving scenes and good acting on both parts. Wish Jack and Vera were there for him, he's got no one except Fiz.

CanYouHearMe Mon 26-Nov-12 23:17:51

Another who was geared up for episode at 830. I think I must have missed an episode too, when Kyle and Dayvid decided on having another baby. Was that Friday?

MurielTheActor Tue 27-Nov-12 09:38:47

A triumph for Corrie <applauds>
Having had unfortunate experience of watching 'Stenders' before (it was a soaps-getting-in-the-way-of-dinner recording thing) which was heavy doom and grief laden (no change there) and then over to Corrie with its sublime mix of light touch and the truly horrific, I now declare unequivocally that Corrie has got it right.
Well done all (if you're lisytening...)

It was great, the mix of horrific (Kirsty) and light-hearted (Dennis and the cashpoint card). Eva getting soaked was another plus!

wintera Tue 27-Nov-12 10:40:34

First time I've watched Corrie for ages. Poor Tyrone! Where's his tough scouse Mum? Margi Clarke played her and she was a right hard knock! Can't she turn up to batter the bitch?!!

Hollyoaks did a storyline like this many moons ago with Tony and Mandy. She kept battering him and then one night he smacked her back and he was the one arrested. Hope that's not what happens in this case!

kenanddreary Tue 27-Nov-12 11:00:01

Oh brill wintera - that would sort Kirsty out for sure! Would love to see her come back.

I said exactly the same Liverpool further up the thread! It's so frustrating isn't it? Why can't Fizz remember that T & T were saying exactly the same thing not so long ago? Then she could go and see them and they could work out what to do together, get the whole street to support them and get Kirsty to admit the truth. Wishful thinking I suppose.

I have a horrible feeling that Dennis is going to go a bit mad with that credit card now...

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Tue 27-Nov-12 12:12:54

I like the idea of Ty setting up a video camera. That would nail evilknickers. I hope he doesn't retaliate by hitting her back in self defence as she has already tried to frame him for being abusive and getting someone (sally/deirdre?) involved. Get it on tape Ty and show it to the police.

MurielTheActor Tue 27-Nov-12 12:23:00

WhoKnowsWhere Eva thing was especially good as her hair looked awful with that ridiculous red hairband. So it was quite a relief when she got soaked grin

MoomieAndFreddie Tue 27-Nov-12 12:24:15

could tyrone not sneakily get a DNA test to prove that ruby is his?

then he could kick kirsty out and be allowed access?

and also - david platt and his wife - why are they living with gail?? they both work, surely they could afford to rent their own place, even just a small flat or something? confused

Adviceinscotland Tue 27-Nov-12 12:55:05

Seemingly Tyrone asks Kirsty to marry him so he can trick her into getting ruby but Kirsty overhears fizz and tommy discussing the plan then "fizz has to make the ultimate sacrifice for her friend" no idea what that means?

carabos Tue 27-Nov-12 12:59:21

Is it just me or is the whole David and Kylie making a baby thing a bit boaky?

Very boaky, esp when he was discussing it with Gail and wanting to know her movements for the week <boak!>

wifey6 Tue 27-Nov-12 13:54:18

Very odd.. hmm Who tells their parents like that anyway..TMI. Can't stand David Platt! <I know..I know..it's not real smile>

whatkungfuthat Tue 27-Nov-12 16:30:05

Ty doesn't want access though, he needs custody as Kirsty is too unbalanced to trust with the baby. Perhaps marrying her is the only way, and then getting proof on film? He has several witnesses as Eileen has said about the noise and Tina & Tommy know, as well as Fiz.

LightHousekeeping Tue 27-Nov-12 17:56:26

It was me who said that Lewis is going to get between Gails sheets. That is boakier than David and Kylie.

Poor Jack, Ive just blubbed reading this. www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2239186/Bill-Tarmey-death-Liz-Dawn-leads-way-Coronation-Street-husband-Jack-Duckworths-funeral.html Vera doesnt sound like shes in the best health either.

I can imagine him in Tenerife happily watching the horse racing in an English pub, in the sun. Its a good way to go.

theliverpoolone Tue 27-Nov-12 18:13:09

Kevin got a sneaky dna test on Jack by stealing his dummy iirc, so you'd think Tyrone could easily get one done on Ruby, and then fight for custody.

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Tue 27-Nov-12 18:27:37

oh gail and david's whole dynamic makes me feel boaky. yes why are they living there and where do they all sleep? even nick moved back in didn't he?

kenanddreary Tue 27-Nov-12 18:37:34

Those houses are made of elastic, they just keep on stretching grin

Going to be interesting when Owen finds out what Jason is up to. He's not one to double-cross!

LightHousekeeping Tue 27-Nov-12 18:55:35

we havent seen the nasty side to him for awhile.

Where does Kevin live with the baby that we never see? Is it a bedsit or something?

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Tue 27-Nov-12 18:59:05

i think kevin lives in the house lloyd was living beside devs shop in with that girl and her son. what was her name? she went back to her abusive ex in the end didn't she?

Sleepyfergus Tue 27-Nov-12 18:59:06

God, what a episode. I was cowering for Tyrone. Haveto say both parts are been played brilliantly. Kirstie is crazed.

Totally agree that David talking to his mum about him & Kylie 'doing it' - yep, boak-a-rama. Bet Kylie is going to still be on the pill as someone previously said. Cue David (or Gail maybe?) accidentally knocking over Kylies bag and the packet falling over.

And yes Ken totally agree Dennis is going to be a menace with that cash card. Rita's gonna have to 'ave a word!

Sleepyfergus Tue 27-Nov-12 19:00:09

Yep, Kev is now in the house next to Devs shop. Where he used to live with Sally ironically!

CanYouHearMe Tue 27-Nov-12 19:01:43

I'm pretty sure he's back in his old coronation street house

Yes, Steve bought the house off Lloyd for him and Tracey and sold it to Kev when that didn't work out. Steve seems to just move round and round the street.

wifey6 Tue 27-Nov-12 21:33:13

Is it true (has anyone else read) that Tina is actually pregnant with Tommy's baby..not the surrogate baby?

I'm trying not to read spoilers, but you would think the fertility clinic would have had her on hormones to prevent ovulation or something?

Changing the subject, just been browsing the magazines in the supermarket, there is a feature on the actor that plays Eva on the cover of OK, with a pic of her before she lost 5 stone, it is an amazing transformation.

Jbck Tue 27-Nov-12 22:04:26

Eva is in Trollied on Sky One and she looks like a different girl, shes almost scrawny looking. Dont know when it was filmed but newest series still on so presume very recently.

Tyrone getting beaten up was awful and really shocking, Dd1 was in the room not really watching but I almost switched it off, wonder if they had any complaints because it was so real before the watershed (is there still one).

kenanddreary Tue 27-Nov-12 22:12:31

It was awful Jbck - very realistic. Poor old Ty - he's had a tough time. Been a lot of violence in the Street recently. Hated the way Jason beat up Marcus in the pub. He really went over the top with that!

Would be interesting to know if there were any complaints - I hadn't thought of that because I don't have young DC any more.

My DC are 6 and 8 and although I occasionally catch up with a bit of Corrie with them around I usually have one finger on the stop button, you never know when it's going to get unsuitable. I think I started watching when I was about 12, but don't recall much violence, only lots of affairs.

kenanddreary Tue 27-Nov-12 22:32:19

Oh yes I remember all the affairs WhoKnows! I started watching when i was about 8 I think. You are right - it did seem to go through a big 'affair' phase.

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 27-Nov-12 22:41:14

No spoilers !! We agreed at the start of the other thread. Pleeeeeeease.

Sleepyfergus Tue 27-Nov-12 22:47:28

Yeah, we should probably ask MNHQ to add 'no spoilers please' to the thread title.

Talking about kids watching tv and violence etc, I had sky plussed Emmerdale the other night (where Katie falls down the mine shaft and is crying) and had it on play back whilst pottering around. Only at the end did I realise the dd aged 3 was watching the last 5 mins, and when it finished she said to me 'I not like that, the last was upset and crying'

sad

So I need to be more wary, although she's not usually up at soap time, but I should be careful about playing stuff back during the day naughty mummy

Sleepyfergus Tue 27-Nov-12 22:49:24

Last = lady

I recently had 6 weeks off work sick and started watching Doctors, some of the scenes on that I would regard as highly unsuitable for children and it's on at 1.45.

My two let me know very quickly if they don't like what they see. I am watching re-runs of ER with my finger poised even more firmly on the stop button.

LightHousekeeping Wed 28-Nov-12 06:25:08

It's just thinking aloud I've seen. It keeps the thread going. I haven't seen any spoilers.

whatkungfuthat Wed 28-Nov-12 10:01:46

Me too Light. I don't know if they are planning to marry Ty and Kirsty off but it would be the easiest way of him getting Ruby, that's all.

thenightsky Wed 28-Nov-12 19:32:56

Oh here we go... wonder if Kirsty will go off to work leaving poor Ty locked in again sad

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Wed 28-Nov-12 19:38:07

tommy knows now!

sad but he's not interested

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Wed 28-Nov-12 19:38:36

no ty! put the pills down!

kenanddreary Wed 28-Nov-12 20:34:13

Oh dear sad is that really the only way Ty can get custody of Ruby? How is he going to put up with the mad woman until they get married?

On a lighter note - I love Fizz but she seriously looked like Santa Claus tonight grin

wifey6 Wed 28-Nov-12 20:41:35

Sorry if this has already been answered..but what the frig is Lewis up to?

wifey6 Wed 28-Nov-12 20:42:39

Also...wouldn't a DNA test be an easier way to prove paternity & therefore get rights over baby Ruby than marrying a mad woman? hmm

kenanddreary Wed 28-Nov-12 20:46:27

Wifey - Lewis is out to get revenge on Gail for doubting him and trying to catch him out with Gloria and then turn Audrey against him. I think he will rip Gail off somehow.

Yes - DNA would be easier but Kirsty would have to give permission for the test. Although as someone else said - he could just get it done without her knowing so I'm not sure why he hasn't really confused. Maybe there is some legal reason we don't know about.

wifey6 Wed 28-Nov-12 20:49:37

Thank you kenabddreary... grin love your name!!

kenanddreary Wed 28-Nov-12 20:56:50

smile thanks Wifey

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 28-Nov-12 22:59:17

Do you think Lewis is trying to get mega revenge on Gail?

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Wed 28-Nov-12 23:46:09

I thought Fiz looked like Santa Clause tonight too. It was the red leggings and boots that did it! I don't think Tyrone marrying Kirstynastyknickers is a good idea at all. She will be entitled to half the house and a hell of a lot more. He should go to the doctor and the police and show them the evidence of physical abuse. He should also report the psycho to social services.
Gail is so fecking annoying, can't stand the hampster faced, squeacking muppet. Am sick of Lewis too and how easily he manipulates people. Lets hope he doesn't become good chums with Rita's hubby and his flexible debit card.

LarkinSky Thu 29-Nov-12 14:07:34

Looks like Lewis is after all of Gails savings as last night he dug out her bank statement to check the balance. I dont like that storyline at all, why couldn't he and Audrey enjoyed a happy old age?

I wonder what the uk law on proving paternity actually is, I find it hard to believe Tyrone doesn't have a leg to stand on. Is the storyline going to spin out for all of December until a Christmas special now?

Wingedharpy Thu 29-Nov-12 15:20:19

Answer me this:
When Fiz called round to Tyrone after Kirsty locked him in the house and he was speaking to Fiz through the window he said that he couldn't call Kirsty at work to tell her he was locked in because she'd also taken his phone.
Next episode - Tommy is in the flat and gets a call from Tyrone asking him to call round.
How did Tyrone make that call?

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 29-Nov-12 15:29:20

Tommy said he got an email from Tyrone not a phone call.

He's got a landline.

kenanddreary Thu 29-Nov-12 17:47:27

I thought he got his phone back? Didn't Kirsty catch him going through her bag to look for his phone? Then I think she said something like he should cancel his phone because he really didn't need it and it would save money. Or I could be dreaming this grin

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 29-Nov-12 17:56:53

Tyrone doesn't have his phone back and thats why Fiz and Tommy had to go find him at the coach station as there was no other way of contacting him.

PuffPants Thu 29-Nov-12 18:03:24

On This Morning yesterday, Sharon Marshsall said the Tyrone/Kirsty storyline is going to go on beyond Christmas.

Why doesn't he call the police, have her charged with assault, get a restraining order and kick her out. Surely the authorities wouldn't prefer the baby to be raised in care just because Tyrone's name isn't on the bc? In those circumstances, couldn't a paternity test be allowed without her permission?

kenanddreary Thu 29-Nov-12 19:55:39

Oh yeah WhatThe - I remember that now. Must pay more attention!

I don't know if I can bear it if this story goes on until after Christmas. I agree PuffPants - surely there has to be an easier way to sort this out? confused

CanYouHearMe Thu 29-Nov-12 23:36:49

Ty should go on mumsnet and be saved!

kenanddreary Fri 30-Nov-12 20:11:43

grin @ Tangerine Tina asking Tommy if she looked pale!

Stella and Jason? wink

NickNacks Fri 30-Nov-12 20:37:22

I think I've missed a storyline... What's the deal with Derek and this debit card? I don't follow!

LightHousekeeping Fri 30-Nov-12 20:37:57

I would like to see Stella and Jason together, they both deserve some fun.

LightHousekeeping Fri 30-Nov-12 20:39:40

PS why does Rita seem to be keeping her husband? I know he was down and out when she met him but really? has he no assets at all? She will be broke at this rate.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Fri 30-Nov-12 20:40:11

Can't believe Fizz has been sacked! Surely she'd have to have two written warnings first?

kenanddreary Fri 30-Nov-12 20:45:16

Nicknacks - Dennis has never had a debit card before and is going a little crazy with it!

Yes - looks like Rita is keeping Dennis - he was broke when they met and I don't suppose he has managed to earn anything since.

Poor Fizz! What a heroine though. When it all comes out she is owed big apologies all round.

KenDoddsDadsDog Fri 30-Nov-12 20:49:24

Poor Tyrone, he is so scared.

NickNacks Fri 30-Nov-12 20:50:17

Ah ok I'm just catching up on yesterday's episodes with the pint of milk and the pub rounds... You're all right though, she's going to be broke in no time.

SnapesOnAPlane Fri 30-Nov-12 20:52:08

Two written warnings not necessary if Gross Misconduct, however she SHOULD have had a disciplinary meeting and a chance to prepare for it - which she needs written warning about, not just a quick chat in the office.
Poor Fizz sad.

LeeCoakley Fri 30-Nov-12 20:55:50

I don't know where the storyline is going. Surely Tyrone's had enough heartache without losing Ruby as well as Jack but unless Kirsty dies or goes to prison I can't see how he's ever going to be happy. i.e. without Kirsty but hanging onto Ruby. And Fizz has had enough bad things happen. Neither of them has done anything wrong but the storylines seem to just heap more and more bad things onto them.

Dennis and the cashcard - boring boring boring.

Sargesaweyes Fri 30-Nov-12 20:58:37

What exactly is the plan Tyrone has? I've obviously missed something. This storyline is so sad sad

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Fri 30-Nov-12 21:01:33

Poor Fiz sad

SwedishEdith Fri 30-Nov-12 22:15:24

Yes, Tina asking if she was pale was surely a script-writers in-joke grin

I must admit, I really hated Michelle Collins being in Corrie at first but she#s really grown into the role

MrsSalvoMontalbano Fri 30-Nov-12 22:24:07

Dennis cashcard Boorrrrrrrrring... Poor Tyrone sad poor Fiz sad. The Lewis story is good - gonna see poor Gail suckered yet is

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Fri 30-Nov-12 23:20:31

I'm fed up with Lewis and Gail storyline. It is just awful. Gail is so predictable. Hope Stella is not going to turn into a cougar. The thought of her and Jase together is just too yuck for words.

ivykaty44 Fri 30-Nov-12 23:29:38

What will Jasons mum have to say about him having some fun with a woman 2 years younger than herself...?

I really like Stella now as well, I think getting rid of Carl was a very good move, made her character much more believable, as in I couldn't believe she stuck with a loser like him. She's old enough to be Jason's mother though. Gloria seems to have disappeared?

Dennis and the cashpoint card was nice as a little aside to counter the dark Kirsty storyline the other night but has been made too much of now. Hopefully he will find a job (wonder if he can operate a sewing machine?).

Poor Fiz, she doesn't deserve any of this.

alisarah Fri 30-Nov-12 23:34:08

Swedish tina pale?? grin

Oh yes, Lewis and Gail. Utter drivel. For the first time I am wishing they would write Lewis out, it was much better when we didn't actually know for sure that he ws a conman. This is so far fetched. Gail is so self absorbed and stupid.

ajandjjmum Sat 01-Dec-12 08:36:45

Bit off topic, but 'Frank Foster' charged with child sex abuse shock.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 01-Dec-12 09:14:33

I know, just read that!

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Sat 01-Dec-12 11:25:25

frank foster, as in the actor who played him charged in RL?

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 01-Dec-12 11:35:59

Yes, charged with 6 counts of indecent assault against a minor. Dating back a long time I think.

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Sat 01-Dec-12 12:01:08

sad

it's making me very uncomfortable that he played the role he did in corrie after hearing this.

i hope his victim wasn't watching the storyline with carla sad

PuffPants Sat 01-Dec-12 14:49:25

Alleged victim, remember. Innocent until proven guilty and all that. We know nothing about it.

whatkungfuthat Sat 01-Dec-12 15:24:47

That stupid look on Gail's face when she was rubbing Lewis's shoulder made me want to boak. Dennis has been working in the Kabin so why doesn't Rita just pay him a wage for that into a simple bank account? I thought Fiz may confide in Michelle last night, surely that would be supposedly confidential?

I reckon they will get rid of Kirsty in some way at the climax of the storyline. They won't want her hanging around, too many loose ends they would need to sort.

alemci Sat 01-Dec-12 16:43:32

couldn't Tyrone report her to social services and say she was a danger to Ruby or even report the violence to him to the police. I am sure Tommy and Fizz would back him up and he has bruises. Surely he could get custody of Ruby then as he is caring for her.

Kirsty is so awful it is unreal. She is unhinged really.

Sleepyfergus Sat 01-Dec-12 18:29:04

Finally caught up. I don't seem to watch an episode on the actual night anymore!

Felt sorry for Fiz, but she'll be victorious in the end and everyone roll have to eat their words. I also thought she might confide in Michelle too, think I would have.

And yes, she did look very Santa's Little Helper!

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Sat 01-Dec-12 18:50:45

oh yes, apologies. alleged victim.

FeckOffCup Sat 01-Dec-12 21:41:36

Where are Carl and Sunita these days, are they still together? Not seen them in weeks.

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Sat 01-Dec-12 22:55:23

Who cares?

babbas Sat 01-Dec-12 23:46:19

Kirsty is v scary. Do not like Lloyds new family, I just can't see Lloyd going for someone like Mandy. The same as Irene and her fireman fella. Hate the Gail Lewis story. Met Gail once and she is just lovely in RL.

Nancy66 Sun 02-Dec-12 11:09:07

I guess that it's all leading to a Fiz/ Tyrone reunion.

I agree that there's no way Lloyd would go for someone as mumsy as Mandy.

I still reckon there's something brewing with Nick and Kylie

alemci Sun 02-Dec-12 11:54:45

I like Mandys co ordinating headbands though LOL

PoppyAmex Sun 02-Dec-12 14:27:39

I need a kind soul to help me out here...

I Sky+'ed the last 3 episodes and just watched the first - finishes with Tyrone in the bus station about to leave.

Started watching the next one and Tyrone is at home discussing vaccination with Kirsty?

Did I miss one in the middle? Why didn't he leave?

Nancy66 Sun 02-Dec-12 14:36:12

Fiz visited a solicitor on behalf of Tyrone and the solicitor advised that Tyrone's best chance of getting to keep Ruby is to marry Kirsty. As they are currently not married and his name is not on the birth certificat he had little chance of getting custody if they split.

So Fiz told Tommy this and then Tommy and her raced to the train station in time to talk Tryone out of leaving.

So Tyrone now plans to trick Kirsty into marrying him so that he has parental responsibliity for Ruby and can then fight for custody.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 02-Dec-12 15:27:34

Lloyd and Mandy are not a convincing couple. Lloyds last girlfriend was Cheryl Gray. I'm guessing he doesn't have a type as such then grin

PoppyAmex Sun 02-Dec-12 15:31:08

Nancy, thank you!

That makes a lot more sense. I must've missed an episode in the middle.

Is Stella flirting with Jason?

babbas Sun 02-Dec-12 17:55:54

Mandy and Jenna both don't seem to fit in. Jenna is v wooden and Mandy looks like Lloyds mum. Also Jenna seems to be heading towards lesbiandom. ATM just cannot stand Owen. He's always been a nasty bully and his manipulation of Tina and tommy is horrible. It was so uncomfortable watching them all insist Tina should do the pregnancy test at Anna's. In fact really can't stand Anna any more either. And hasn't she put all her weight on again after having got to a size 8.

Really kind of liked Lewis until his latest story with Gail. And I agree that there is chemistry between nick and kylie. Wish theyd not have so many unbelievable moments these days: Katie leaving Joseph and hope with David and kylie; Tyrone checking Kirsty's bag without closing the living room door, Rob and moronic Michelle running the factory, the silly bar nick runs booming with business all the time, Jenna dropping Sophie home after an appointment, Gail falling for Lewis, Tina getting pg straight away and within two months of izzys miscarriage!

LightHousekeeping Sun 02-Dec-12 19:29:09

Are we heading for a Tina/David reunion of sorts?

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 02-Dec-12 19:51:07

I like watching extras more than anything in Coronation Street!

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 02-Dec-12 20:19:49

Poor Tommy. He is not coping is he? Did feel sorry for him as he stood there with Gary, the baby's father and Tina's ex doctor boyfriend. What a mess. No wonder he is drinking himself to oblivion.

It does seem like there could be some spark between Kylie and Nick. Getting it on with family cast offs must run in the family. I think Ava is getting that vibe too.

LightHousekeeping Sun 02-Dec-12 20:34:27

I'm really disliking Norris lately. As if anyone could get away with being so spitefull all the time. I mean Rita would've sacked him long ago.

I'm hating this surrogate storyline

ajandjjmum Sun 02-Dec-12 21:43:45

Me too LightHousekeeping - he's gone from being comical to thoroughly unpleasant, and everyone lets him get away with it.

Amazing to see Kylie get away with the 'buffet' tonight - but it was lovely to see her pull it off.

I think Tina's remarkably patient with Tommy - I would be driven to snarling 'you got us into this position in the first place' on a regular basis! grin

SantaIAmSoFuckingRock Sun 02-Dec-12 23:28:16

i felt really sorry for tommy this evening when tina collapsed and gary was all for following her. they dont own her body! if she wants to go and see if she's ok she can and she doesn't have to tell them the answer!! tommy was right when he said all they were interested in was their, what was it, 'precious cargo?'

LightHousekeeping Sun 02-Dec-12 23:33:02

Like all of you, Im in shock by how quickly it has all happened. Are they paying for it or something?

Do we think Kirsty will get wind of the plan? Its horrible. I hope it doesnt go on for much longer. I wonder what the Christmas storyline is going to be?

Does Simon ever hear from his father? Is he going to show up as Santa Claus?

bunchamunchycrunchycarrots Mon 03-Dec-12 00:39:13

The Tyrone and Kirsty storyline is annoying me. Why don't they have tyrone posting on an 'internet forum' for advice or summat? Why doesn't he get his arse down to a solicitor and get his own advice, as he'd be advised to do on MN should he have posted a thread about his abusive partner? Does he not realise marrying Kirsty has implications on the home he owns as well as his business? And he can actually apply for PR without actually going through with a wedding. Jeez, the 'bad' advice being doled out on this programme is fecking irritating!

babbas Mon 03-Dec-12 11:05:06

I agree bunchamunchy. Tyrone is so flipping wet. He is just brainless and his constant unfriending and snarling at friends trying to help (Tina tommy fiz) really annoys me. And he was so nasty to tommy about the repayments. He's just spineless. And now too dumb to go see a solicitor himself ffs. I know it's part of his character to portray him as a victim but he's such a big girls blouse.

theliverpoolone Mon 03-Dec-12 12:03:41

As I've said before (wish the scriptwriters would listen!), Kevin got Jack's DNA from a dummy - no permission from anyone - and the next thing, he's got sole custody of him. Surely Tyrone would remember that?!!

SantaIAmSoFuckingRock Mon 03-Dec-12 12:29:13

i think kevin used a private DNA company, but i dont think the result from a test done privately would stand up in court WRT tyrone being able to use it to gain custody of ruby. i think for this purpose it has to be a court ordered DNA test which requires the mother's permission. not sure though.

Kenanddreary Mon 03-Dec-12 20:33:38

Only just caught up with yesterday's episode - recorded it to watch tonight because I couldn't bear the thought of no Corrie on a Monday night grin.

Didn't think I would ever say this but I am getting very irritated by Tommy. I used to think he had every right to be fed-up and miserable (think I said so earlier in this thread) but OMG he's a pain now. Just needs to get over himself and realise that not only is Tina getting him out of a huge debt but she is also doing something really nice for another couple. And even more so now she's actually pregnant...couldn't believe he asked her to get rid of the baby.

Lighthouse - yes old Nozzer is horrendous (but great comedy value), however, he owns the Cabin now so Rita can't get rid of him. He now employs her!

MrsSalvoMontalbano Tue 04-Dec-12 16:39:19

lol KenandDreary - I know what you mean - I do that too!

Kenanddreary Tue 04-Dec-12 18:29:05

grin - it makes Mondays at work completely bearable!!

Can I just say, what on earth did Eva have on her head this evening?! confused

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Thu 06-Dec-12 09:06:33

It was extraordinary wasn't it? Made her look like a Christmas pudding.

I SO want to give Tommy a huge kick up the arse at the moment.

Looks like Peter and Carla are on their way back.

Kenanddreary Thu 06-Dec-12 17:46:28

Yawn @ the thought of moany Peter and his sidekick Carla.

Eva's headgear - didn't baby Ruby have something similar on her head not so long ago? grin

SwedishEdith Thu 06-Dec-12 18:24:07

No, I still love Tommy. Tina and Tommy can't split up sad Hope there's a twist and she's pregnant with his baby.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 06-Dec-12 18:54:36

"Old Nozzer" grin I find him bloody irritating.
Eva's hideous headband made me think she was going to pose for Anne Geddes. I hate Eva, she is such a sour puss.
Tommy needs to get a grip. Either he loves Tina or he doesn't!
Carla and Peter can just fook right off. They're a right pair of moany, miserable, selfish buggers! Why bother bringing them back to Corrie?

grin at Anne Geddes! How could anyone have a serious conversation with her with that on her head?!

I agree about Tommy, poor Tina, she's trying to do something lovely for someone. I thought her acting was excellent last night, very moving.

Not a spoiler, but has anyone seen the trailer ITV are running for their Christmas tv? The Corrie bits are intriguing!

And another thing, why does Leanne wear such awful clothes?! Her jackets are all too wide at the shoulders, and don't get me started on that jumper with the boats on!

Also, what is with Rob's voice? It's like he's shouting all the time.

And why is Mandy acting like she's old mates with everyone at the Rovers, she's only been there 5 minutes!

Glad I've got all that off my chest!
<needs to get out more, & remember Corrie's not real!>

Bakingnovice Fri 07-Dec-12 20:05:33

I'm with tommy. That whole storyline gives me the creeps. As does Owen. Urghhhh. It's unrealistic too. Izzy get pg. izzy miscarries within days of the test. Izzy decides never to try again. Izzy wants surrogate. It's Katie. Oh no it's not. It's Tina. One day they have an appointment at the surrogacy centre. A week later Tina is impregnated and lo and behold a few days later she is pg and having a scan! I mean c'mon corrie. We know you're trying to cram the story in for Xmas but its unrealistic to start with then it's on bloody speed dial.

Yes, why is Mandy now everyone's mate? Most of them call her 'mand'. And why won't Tyrone have a quiet word with Michelle about the truth about Kirsty and fizz so she gets her job back ? Why is tommy struggling for work but Mandy walks into a job at the rovers? Why does Leanne wear turn up jeans and kitten heels? And why does no one ever catch Lewis doing those silly smirks whilst fooling Gail??

Am loving corrie at the moment though. Haha.

thenightsky Fri 07-Dec-12 20:30:01

Re Mandy being everyones mate at the rovers... I thought that about stella when she first started too.

StopPickingYourNose Fri 07-Dec-12 20:43:34

Max has been dumped more times than Britney. hmm

thenightsky Fri 07-Dec-12 21:14:44

Stella to Tina: 'Go home and take the weight off yer gob' grin

Yes, that's so true about the speed of everything. I thought that about Kylie & David too, one minute David suggests a baby, the next they're 'trying', no thought to when she might be ovulating! (or not, since she was on the pill!).

True about Stella being very familiar with everyone from the off, but I do like her.

StopPickingYourNose Sat 08-Dec-12 01:06:46

I like Stella now. Hated her at first though. So much better without Carl.

What about Gail with Lewis tonight. Going upstairs to iron her best frock to go to another bistro. Has Gail ever worn a frock? As if you would have that bastard Lewis under your roof after he conned your own mother. Gail is ghastly. There is a line that you just do not cross and lusting after your mothers ex is crossing that line. vomitpukevomit

PoppyAmex Sat 08-Dec-12 11:46:32

I couldn't stand Kylie, but really like her now and love the chemistry between her and Nick.

I think they could be really good for each other and it could be a great storyline and piss LeAnne right off which is a bonus

The Lewis thing is just so stupid though; after everything he did to Audrey and the amount of forgiveness she showed him, he couldn't let something like that go?

StopPicking I agree, I hope Lewis gets Gail, she's a horrid little woman and really deserves it.

Tommy has said some unforgivable things to poor Tina; it was all about him and his ego and what other people think. He's such a looser!

LeeCoakley Sat 08-Dec-12 11:54:34

I think Tina is better off without Tommy. He's the source of all the money troubles and she's gone through a lot to get him off the hook. He said he'd stand by her and now we seem to have a repeat storyline (it's the baby or me) but with a different ending. I didn't realise there was history between David and Tina and I hope she's not going to it in the neck from Kylie about him spending the night there. Along with Fizz and Tyrone, I think she deserves a bit of happiness. Bloody Peter and Carla turning up, what next - Sunita and Karl all lovey dovey? Yuk! Haven't missed that lot at all.

Bakingnovice Sat 08-Dec-12 22:12:06

Poppy you are so right. Lewis storyline is pathetic. I mean honestly. He jumped off a train leaving Audrey in the lurch so Gail scammed him. He's acting like gail plotted Abd succeeded in killing his parents! So ott and immature. The stuff he's done and got away with. It's an unrealistic storyline and I did grow to like Lewis. I like Tina but every single time she's on screen me and Dh spend the whole time discussing how brown/ orange/ tawny she bloody is!

Really wish they'd get rid of bandy legged Leanne , empty headed Eva and moany miserable mofo Michelle.

Kenanddreary Mon 10-Dec-12 20:28:56

Oh I just wanted to slap Peter's smug face tonight - why is he so happy to ruin Leanne's holiday plans? Surely he has got what he wants (Carla confused).

Also - yawn a little at the Kylie/David/Tina storyline...this sort of thing has been done so many times before.

Kenanddreary Mon 10-Dec-12 21:05:08

At least our Deidre didn't make her stuffed marrow tonight
grin

alemci Mon 10-Dec-12 21:20:48

also where are Tracey and Amy. Funny how they are conveniently not their again. Do they exist in another dimension.

also yawn with Steve. His only role in CS seems to be to fall out with people and have some sort of pathetic vendetta

whatkungfuthat Tue 11-Dec-12 09:28:43

I thought D'Artagnan Peter was really wooden last night. I def. think this storyline is going to lead to some sort of frisson between Kylie and Nick though, indirectly.

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Tue 11-Dec-12 23:20:59

i am intrigued at the rapidly growing bun on Kylie's head, she looked like a cottage loaf last night.

I also think Kylie and David are going to get closer. Leanne doesn't really love Nick, I sometimes feel sorry for Nick till I remember that time he got Peter drunk. Are Carla and Peter really leaving again on Boxing Day? <hopeful>, actually don't answer that, don't want spoilers.

MurielTheActor Wed 12-Dec-12 12:06:52

I did love Carla and the orange knickers and her putting her feet up with magazine to get away from the Barlows grin
Also BIG Kylie fan.

Not a spoiler because I don't know, but I think extremely unlikely that Carla and Peter will leave again. Peter said as much. So stuck with them I guess. But I did love all that sanctimonious 'forgiveness' ghastliness so true of reformed addicts (with apologies to reformed addicts....)

Bakingnovice Wed 12-Dec-12 15:12:51

Hmmm yes kylies bun is getting bigger. She's actually starting to look a bit like one of those village women carrying pots on her head.

There's deffo something brewing between nick and kylie. I hope not. I'm bored of inter family affairs.

Steve is fast turning into reg holdsworth. Remember him? And why do they dress him like a 60 year old? Even Lloyd and that horrible fireman get trendy clothes and all Steve gets is them horrible shirts!

Glad Carla is back. Just don't like her with Peter.

carabos Wed 12-Dec-12 19:26:19

I know the Kirsty character is a horror, but gosh that actress who plays her is a stunner. It's hilarious that she looks like a supermodel but nobody ever mentions it, while Carla cruella de vil is meant to be sex on a stick.

Kenanddreary Wed 12-Dec-12 20:39:03

Carla not looking good at the moment. Loved the cat fight grin.

I find it very odd that Mr packham went from being a secondary teacher to being a primary head so quickly confused.

And of course Toyah won't make it to the wedding - she's in the mysterious land of all the vanished corrie siblings grin

Bakingnovice Wed 12-Dec-12 21:30:07

Oh and Sarah Lou and Beth. They won't be able to afford the travel costs either. Not liking the new 'I'm serious about my career' kylie. Prefer her and David to be abnoxious and troublesome.

Has Tina had her teeth done. They're looking v fake.

Sleepyfergus Wed 12-Dec-12 23:44:53

Where are Sarahlou and Beth again? Is it Milan? And why? Did she leave with a bloke.....I just can't remember!

Carla was looking rough I thought. And I'm so sick of her black and white wardrobe. Surely being in sunny California might have injected a bit of colour into it?

And yy to Kirsty being stunning. I almost thought Ty was going to waver when he saw how gorgeous she looked.

Tina's teeth - yes! Did you ever see that episode of 'Friends' when Ross had his teeth whitened, and they went all luminous under UV light. Beware Tina, beware! Between that and her fake tan and gel nails, she's teetering dangerously on TOWIE territory!

LightHousekeeping Wed 12-Dec-12 23:58:06

Carla has fantastic hair. I still want to know how she thinks she can go and live in LA. The pair of them. Where are they planning to work and how do they get work visas nobody else can.

I think we are gearing up to an interesting Christmas down Coronation street.

I read an interview with Ken Barlows son today. Ken is 80 he looks fantastic grin how old is he supposed to be in the show?

whatkungfuthat Thu 13-Dec-12 08:16:05

Aren't the people who played his son and dodgy grandson both his sons in RL?

I am a bit over the drinking story although the fight was good last night.

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Thu 13-Dec-12 09:00:37

I'm all behind again, DH stopped recording Monday's second ep so he could watch the football (thanks DH!) and I haven't managed to catch it on ITV Player yet, who's drinking?

Carla. She was asked to pick Simon up at school and drove while she had been drinking. Simon took the keys off her and ran home to Leanne. Big fight erupted between Carla and Leanne.

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Thu 13-Dec-12 09:20:18

That's bad, hasn't she learnt anything after that crash? Leanne really annoys me but she is far better for Simon than Carla ever will be.

LightHousekeeping Thu 13-Dec-12 10:48:09

Leanne wants Peter back. You can tell.

Bakingnovice Thu 13-Dec-12 10:57:13

Tina is starting to look silly. She's browner than my Indian best friend. She really is. She's had her teeth done , her top lip is looking suspiciously bigger and it's bloody obvious she's had eyelashes stuck on. Had to laugh when Faye asked her if she had falsies on! It's dilly because Tina is a stunner anyway and we know they're poor and between working two
Jobs and being pg how does she have time to be constantly tanning herself!! In the old days actors weren't allowed to look too tanned or too made up or to change hairstyles.

Carla - loved Carla. That hair. That flat. That car. Then she got with Peter and its all gone downhill.

Sneepy Thu 13-Dec-12 16:54:40

I think Peter is actually going to win the title for orangest corrie cast member. Tina is pretty bad but he is positively mahogany! I don't think the CA sun turns you that color.

alemci Thu 13-Dec-12 17:10:37

have you noticed the way Mandy has become over familiar with Stella. She has only worked there for 5 minutes but acts if she has been there for years' and Stella is her boss.

Also Kylie's bun. She had a thin ponytail earlier in the episode.

yes Ken's son and grandson were in the show. his son is Linus Roache and his gs was the one who worked in the homeless shelter and tried to remortgage Ken's house.

Sleepyfergus Thu 13-Dec-12 18:12:40

Yes, not sure I like Mandys over familiarity having only been on the scene 5 minutes. Doesn't feel right.

TaffyandTeenyTaffy Thu 13-Dec-12 19:03:12

Has Peter had his teeth done - or do they just look very big and white agiainst his ultra-tan?

MrsSalvoMontalbano Thu 13-Dec-12 20:12:53

ooh, haven't yet been abe to see this week's episodes, as have been away on biz in France, but looking forward to settling down tonight to catch up via itvplayer, and reading this is like foreplay blush grin <needs to get a life>

SwedishEdith Thu 13-Dec-12 20:22:26

How come Carla and Peter have moved/planned to move to the US? As far as I know, you can't just move to America just because you want to.They have pretty tight immigration rules. They never trouble themselves with such minor inconveniences in soaps

LightHousekeeping Thu 13-Dec-12 22:28:18

That's what I said half way up the page. They talk as if its just moving to Scotland or something. as if they'd get residency in California. Because they are such a catch.

alemci Thu 13-Dec-12 22:29:35

also wasn't that roughly where Nic was going to take him and Leanne on holiday so what a daft storyline.

Bakingnovice Thu 13-Dec-12 22:46:21

Totally daft. Peter looks like he's come back from an episode of Extreme Makeover. And how are they paying for all this jet setting. As of anyone with leave their son with Leanne. She's not even his proper mum.

Like ken. Cannot get over the hair. The colour, the movement, the volume, the body, the swooosh. But didn't like the Wendy storyline at all.

Mandy - cannOt stand this character. Over familiar with everyone. And really loathe her sack dresses. Ok she brightens up the pub with a bit of colour but by heck is she wooden and I'll say it again , there's no way she's a match for Lloyd.

Footface Fri 14-Dec-12 09:46:08

I missed most if corrie, but has Carla been drinking ir did si just think that?

PoppyAmex Fri 14-Dec-12 10:37:53

Still behind (as usual) but just watched the scene at the Rovers:

Tina: I'm a surrogate mum
Tommy: You're muck, that's what you are. shock

He is such a loser.

alemci Fri 14-Dec-12 11:14:15

But you have to hand it to Mandy. She always has a co ordinating head band to match each 'sack dress'. smile

ajandjjmum Sat 15-Dec-12 06:25:04

Can't believe Peter is staying.

Sleepyfergus Sat 15-Dec-12 09:20:59

Just caught up and not happy that Peter is staying. He looks a bit weird with his tan and new found 'lets talk about it' mantra.

Actually, he looks like a cross between a Musketeer and a pub magician.

Wasn't the Lollipop men/women thing cringeworthy? Tiring very quickly of that 'story' line.

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Sat 15-Dec-12 09:41:17

8've been wondering about Carla and Peter and the money. Are they both still living on the profits of the bookies and factory? Does Leanne still co-own the bookies? What are Carla and Peter actually doing in America? I hate the new look Peter as well. Haven't seen Friday's yet, has he decided to stay.

I'm also tiring of the lollipop thing. I think I might have missed an episode a week or two back (or been writing Christmas cards and not concentrating) - what happend with Steve in the first place?

Wish Carl and Sunita would disappear again.

Sleepyfergus Sat 15-Dec-12 11:47:43

Steve discovered whatshisface was a lollipop man (whf was trying to keep it secret, making out he had a more important job at t'council) and threatened to tell everyone. So whf kept holding Steve up in his taxi at the lollipop crossing making Steve late for fares etc. So Steve told that silly headmaster that whf had been mean to kids etc. All a bit of silly tit for tat which culminated in that farce last night!

Kenanddreary Sat 15-Dec-12 16:32:08

Sky plus has failed and last night's episodes of Corrie have disappeared forever! Can't be bothered to watch on iplayer - could someone just let me know if Carla has gone or not? [hopeful face]. Am guessing that Peter has stayed? Thanks!

Bakingnovice Sat 15-Dec-12 16:47:50

Steve gets all the reg holdsworth storylines. The lollipop thing was so immature. He's so boring since he got with boring michelle.

LeeCoakley Sat 15-Dec-12 16:50:00

Peter has stayed and Carla gone. Which is a pain seeing as I hate them and wanted to see the back of both of them. I suppose Peter will just squeeze back into the tardis with Ken and Deirdre and Tracey and Amy. Unless he shares the fat with Rob. And where will he work? With Leanne? I don't want them to get back together because it will just set up another mess if Carla comes back etc etc. Also agree about how they were able to set themselves up in the States so easily. It would have be more plausible to go to London or Brighton.
Also what's happened to everyone that works in the cafe? Surely Roy or Hayley have a works rota and who is Fizz replacing?
The Jason/Stella thing - loved Eileen's over the topness!

LineRunner Sat 15-Dec-12 16:52:40

I like the Jason / Stella thing. Excellent stuff.

NettoHoHoHoSuperstar Sat 15-Dec-12 16:58:04

I loved the announcing in the |Rovers.
Go Stella and Jason grin

Kenanddreary Sat 15-Dec-12 17:02:47

One more question- what was Carla's reaction to peter not going?

Tears and goodbye. That was it. I sense she will be back soon though.

vintageviolets Sat 15-Dec-12 17:12:57

Toyah left with Jay in casualty to have a baby grin

Why has Leanne got a wardrobe assistant from 1984, even Norris is more 'on trend' hmm

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Sat 15-Dec-12 17:15:15

Is Rob living in Carla's flat? I guess Peter's old flat is empty, he could go back there.

Is Hayley still in America? Could explain why Roy is short-staffed, although that would have been the way for weeks.

MurielTheActor Sat 15-Dec-12 17:27:24

Kirky's Turkeys grin

NettoHoHoHoSuperstar Sat 15-Dec-12 17:32:44

We were laughing at thast too Muriel, we're having Korky's porky for our dinner this yeargrin

MrsSalvoMontalbano Sat 15-Dec-12 18:49:43

what's bugging me is why Peter drove the car to the airport - where was he planning to leave it - in the long term car park ...forever confused

Hire car?

SoftKittyWarmKitty Sat 15-Dec-12 19:29:43

Yes, and they got a taxi back from the airport! Why would they do that, unless he hired it at the airport when they first got back.

As for Leanne's clothes, about a month ago I tried on and nearly bought the burgundy coat she's started wearing. It actually looked nice and I was very tempted especially as it was 20% off at the time but I preferred it in teal and they didn't have my size in that colour. I'm so glad I didn't buy the burgundy now. grin

PoppyAmex Sat 15-Dec-12 20:11:01

I don't think they set up in the US - they said they had travelled through the Caribbean Islands and spent some time in LA with a friend.

Peter's character is very weird; it goes from being mildly sympathetic to completely evil and sinister.

Can't believe I like Nick now, but wish he would dump Leanne. Can't stand her!

Bakingnovice Sat 15-Dec-12 21:05:10

Leanne is so annoying. And she's become such a bitch. Corrie are always flip reversing characters. Remember how nasty kylie was selling max? And Mary when she kidnapped Norris? And Michelle started off as singer and is now hotshot businesswoman, and Gail used to alright but now she's horrible and meddling. And I wish David would go back to being evil. Don't want him to settle down and have kids.

whatkungfuthat Sat 15-Dec-12 21:48:34

So do we think Leanne is going to end up back with Peter? I hate it when they repeat the same old scenarios. Gail is horrible at the moment but the Lewis storyline is ridiculous, as someone said upthread Audrey's 'crime' was hardly the same as his scamming.

thenightsky Sat 15-Dec-12 22:19:48

Oh yes..sure peter isgonna scubba xmas wedding.

CanYouHearMe Sat 15-Dec-12 23:46:26

I think Peter looks much better now. Where are the others who were swooning after him in the first thread?

Bakingnovice Sun 16-Dec-12 12:21:46

Swooning after Peter???!! Urghhh.

The Gail storyline creeps me out. Your mums ex is a complete no go area ffs. And Lewis is slimier than diarrhoea. The lengths he's gone to for revenge are vile and not believable. And Gail you stupid bint, do not make gooey eyes at your nearly-stepdad!!!

MrsSalvoMontalbano Sun 16-Dec-12 21:26:24

Where is Audrey? Normally she and Gail are in and out of each other's house all the time. Totally unbelieva, ble story. Am enjoying the Stella and Jason fling tho' they do both deserve a bit 'o' fun. And yesssssssssssssss to Steve beoming Reg Holdsworth - I like the sheer comedy mini-plots in Corrie, like the lollipuddle martyrs - comfort food on cold dark wintry evenings grin

MurielTheActor Sun 16-Dec-12 23:19:53

grin MrsSalvo "lollipuddle martyrs".
I thought of them as a Lollipop flash mob

Bakingnovice Mon 17-Dec-12 10:50:03

Mrssalvo I agree. The bits of comedy are genius. Like when Irene flipped when she finds out about jastella (Jason and Stella). I really liked her until she got with that hideously pointless fireman. She's back on form now.

whatkungfuthat Mon 17-Dec-12 11:07:41

I was one of the D'Artagnan Peter-fanciers but that beard has cured me. I am not warming to trouser-smell Fireman at all.

MrsSalvoMontalbano Mon 17-Dec-12 17:39:24

Prefer Peter with the beard, but not by much. What really bugs me is how people just drop their businesses ans show no interest in them. Surely you need a licence to run a bookies - how does Leanne just run it in his absence? How could Carla come back and just pcik up a file and have it make sense in isolation. Surey she'd be in email contact re the P&L, order book etc ( Yes, I know, I know, it isn't real grin)

SwedishEdith Mon 17-Dec-12 19:44:42

<Slight diversion warning> The same "Let's just move to America" nonsense on Hollyoaks now. And that was a one-way ticket in someone else's name. When will ignoring the inconvenient truth ever end? shock

GarlicMushroomsYummy Mon 17-Dec-12 21:55:29

Has Peter had his teeth fixed? He looks different with the tan and the George Michael beard but are they a distraction from his teeth?

carabos Mon 17-Dec-12 23:14:56

I was kind of liking Peter's beard until tonight when he put that cap on and it was Rocky all over again... ADRIEN, ADRIEN grin.

Kenanddreary Tue 18-Dec-12 09:30:40

What is it with that woman Mandy and her bloody food?! Thought she was going to end up ramming it down people's throats! Surely her sausage rolls can wait a few minutes?

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 18-Dec-12 13:09:43

Mandy is annoying- that is all

whatkungfuthat Tue 18-Dec-12 15:38:44

Ty is in for a right kicking now that Kirsty has found Fiz's card sad

MurielTheActor Tue 18-Dec-12 15:40:47

Mandy is really annoying, I agree.

But I'm very afraid of Kirsty <can we have a 'scared' smiley please?>

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 18-Dec-12 18:50:00

Kirsty's eyes when she's in one freak me out- think Shes a really good actress really enjoying that storyline. Not loving the surrogate storyline at all think it's struggling and so unbelievable- shame as I think if they would have done it as a slow burn story with a new character as a surrogate it would have been more interesting and I would have felt more for izzys character.

Bakingnovice Tue 18-Dec-12 22:41:20

Kirsty is so scary when she gets going. Her eyes start flashing, her ponytail quivers, nostrils flare, lips get pursed... She's a brilliant actress.

Mandy is a loon. But I think we all agree that she gives good head(bands).

CanYouHearMe Tue 18-Dec-12 23:15:14

I think I'll be hiding behind a cushion for the next episode. Agree Ty is in for it.

Lozario Wed 19-Dec-12 19:57:59

Tyrone was excellent then (acting-wise). I had a tear there at the end - he is so terrified. They are doing it so well.

LarkinSky Wed 19-Dec-12 20:26:57

Ooh I was in tears at the end of tonight's episode, top drama and acting from Kirsty, while the actor who plays Tyrone has really blossomed during this storyline.

I don't think Tyrone will be able to stand up and lie in church to say wedding vows when it comes to it, but can't see how the storyline will pan out. Unless Kirsty has a terrible accident, but I wouldn't wish that on her character... I hope Ty and Fizz get their happy ending though.

alemci Wed 19-Dec-12 20:46:41

I wish they could sort it out another way. In real life wouldn't Tyrone complain to the police and social services because she is an unfit mother as her behaviour is so volatile and wouldn't the fact he looked after Ruby count for custody.

He also has character witnesses about Kirsty's behaviour - Tommy, Fizz etc.

Surely he shouldn't have to marry Kirsty.

LightHousekeeping Wed 19-Dec-12 22:14:22

Oh, it's so uncomfortable to watch. Fantastic acting.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 19-Dec-12 22:24:41

It's the terror of waiting for her to start on him . Really chilling.

whatkungfuthat Thu 20-Dec-12 09:06:58

It's interesting that Eileen is listening in, that is bound to come up later.

LarkinSky Thu 20-Dec-12 12:44:42

I think the Eileen-listening thing just illustrates how many people - neighbours - have witnessed or overheard domestic violence but not acted - for many reasons, perhaps doubting what they hear, and so on. It's such a sensitive thing and I think this storyline really shows it.

GreenyEyes Thu 20-Dec-12 20:40:14

They're going to have to widen that viaduct if Kylies bun gets any bigger.

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 20-Dec-12 20:57:50

I know I should focused on the drama of it all but how weird I'd Tyrone's chest hair?!

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 20-Dec-12 20:59:15

Ohhhh gonna be watching the new Katherine Kelly programme

Bakingnovice Thu 20-Dec-12 22:55:18

Has anyone else noticed how brown Eileen is?

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Fri 21-Dec-12 22:40:52

Which Katherine Kelly programme?

Sleepyfergus Sat 22-Dec-12 08:51:39

Re Eileen listening in..... I think she's still gonna presume that it's Ty hitting Kirsty though. After she heard them arguing, she saw them arguing again outside the factory, but it was at the tail and if the argument and it looked like Ty was giving out to Kirsty.

But yeah, how brown is she?! And she always has very nice nails! A lot if the women do.....belies how skint they all allegedly are that they always have enough to have their nails done!!!

That Katherine Kelly drama thing looks ace, think its called Mr Selfridge? In the trailer, I still half expect her to be chewing gum and be about to give out a sarky remark to Steve!

RobotLover68 Sun 23-Dec-12 20:30:33

Does anyone know if Carla is coming back? Can't seem to find any info about it anywhere

whatkungfuthat Mon 24-Dec-12 10:33:03

I think she is, there was a pic of her and the rest of the cast who are in the main storylines, in the Radio Times

Lozario Mon 24-Dec-12 19:44:11

Where's Hayley?

Lozario Mon 24-Dec-12 20:22:08

Not that Nick's any better right enough.

Oh god Leanne!

LightHousekeeping Wed 26-Dec-12 14:01:03

I'm just watching too. Oh, what is going to happen? I can't bear it.

CanYouHearMe Wed 26-Dec-12 16:29:20

Did anyone notice the fake snow on the ground at the start, and then it had disappeared when Leanne went off in the wedding car, only to return later!

Boomeringue Wed 26-Dec-12 21:14:53

I can't believe how lazy they all are with their random shagging. Trip on a shoe-lace on top of someone on the cobbles...yep,you'll do.

LeeCoakley Wed 26-Dec-12 21:38:52

I have to say I'm bored with the storylines now. It's daft we have to go through the edge-of-seat stuff with Tyrone and Fizz every episode until the wedding. Leanne/Nick and Kylie/David have had enough airtime now, I want Steve and Tracey and their relationships back to the frontline. Also want Eileen to have some arguments with someone. Let's get this thing with Gail and Lewis over with as well.
Hopefully David will find out about Kylie and Nick and will attempt to kill one of them and then we will see the back of his sneering, unpleasant face.
What's happening with Sophie and the physio? I know Sophie fancies her but does the physio fancy her back? Is the aftermath of the incident with Kevin just an excuse for her not to see Sophie again? I may have missed an important development with these two.
Come on Carla, let's have some fireworks over the factory sale! Carla is best as a businesswoman, her relationship with Peter just doesn't ring true.

CanYouHearMe Thu 27-Dec-12 21:41:32

I'm not at all comfortable with the fizzgate situation. I think the physio is happy to release sopheh from her care so she can then make a move on her without compromising her position.

LightHousekeeping Thu 27-Dec-12 21:44:13

Jenna is a right jobs worth. Although I did say all along her and Sophie would get together. Is there quite an age gap?

CanYouHearMe Fri 28-Dec-12 14:12:42

I would have thought about 8 years. How long was it since Lloyd and Mand split up - she was preggers with Jenna then I think.

LightHousekeeping Fri 28-Dec-12 14:26:16

I assumed it was the 70's

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Fri 28-Dec-12 15:12:15

I thought Sophie was about 19 and Jenna about 30? I do not feel comfortable with the pair of them. If Jenna had any professionalism about her she wouldn't have accepted the bracelet from Sophie.

Bakingnovice Fri 28-Dec-12 20:27:55

Omg so over fizzrone already. How predictable and bloody boring. Sorry but snogging in full view of the street constantly and always being nearly caught is so boring to watch. The Kirsty ty story was good and they've just spoilt it now. Fizz has caused him more beatings than anyone. She needs to back the fuck off.

Jenna and Mandy are not believable at all. As for Leanne, bloody hell why do they dress her like that?! And Peter is totally weird. New teeth?

Even my Dh said today 'can they not think of any decent stories?'. And he watches with one eye closed! Some really poor storylines ATM. Lollipop gate. Eva-Leanne-nick-Peter-Carla gate is boring. Pls corrie up your game!

whatkungfuthat Sat 29-Dec-12 10:28:29

I'd already seen last night's episode on Virgin as they had 2 on 'catch-up' from Wednesday night, weird. Agree all the storylines are dull, I am guessing the Gail/Lewis one will get going again now that the other Platt ones are dying down.

Workingallxmas Sat 29-Dec-12 15:54:25

Im glad Kylie never went. Will she get the plane ticket money back? I reckon she will get in the sack with Nick again.

Jenna and Sophie are getting on my nerves.

What happened to make Gail and Audrey talk again? Has Lewis gone?

MrsJingleBells74 Sat 29-Dec-12 19:22:38

My mum would like to know if Leanne married Nick?

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 29-Dec-12 19:26:32

No , Leanne went to see Peter on the morning of the wedding. Eva told everyone before the vows and Nick called it off !

PoppyAmex Sat 29-Dec-12 22:28:36

Peter is such a repulsive character; the way he hit on Leanne the night before and then swore on his child's life he loved Carla was horrible. Sleazy!

Mind you, Leanne is one of the most annoying, sour-faced characters ever so I can't say I cared that much. And what was she wearing on her wedding day? The wardrobe department hates her, don't they?

Bakingnovice Sun 30-Dec-12 21:36:05

Oh I agree. Peter is vile. Leanne is just as bad. Trying to be back with Peter in her wedding dress. And is it me or is she bog eyed?? I can't stand Jenna. A relationship with Sophie is ridic. Jenna is 30 ish and Sophie a teenager.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Dec-12 18:57:10

Oh, the Marcus and Maria storyline is making me boak. It's all going to go tits up, surely?

AmIthatTinselly Mon 31-Dec-12 19:39:05

I love Peter, even with the beard.

I feel so tense and nervous whenever I watch Tyrone. The witch is going to overhear, isn't she?

Can i just jump in here, not read whole thread sorry.

Is kylie gonna end up pregnant? Seems too easy to say "i'd like to forget what happened and make a go of my marriage".

Is this gonna end up in a which brother is the father drama?

RobotLover68 Mon 31-Dec-12 21:37:52

Yes that's right

Ooo oooh really?

Ive only just seen that sarah-lou is set to return too. Brill roll on new years telly!!!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Dec-12 22:32:38

God, lets hope that child is speaking fluent Italian or at least has an accent!!

Bakingnovice Mon 31-Dec-12 23:04:54

Cannot stand the Marcus Maria thing. So unbelievable. As is nick and kylie. Just any bear 9 months of kylie gurning and nicks ears.

As for fizz, the less said the better. So much subterfuge in corrie at the moment

Bakingnovice Mon 31-Dec-12 23:10:42

Also the Tyrone thing is really badly written. One minute he can't even go to playgroup or for a walk but now he's meeting fizz every five minutes and has two phones!

YouOldTinsellySlag Tue 01-Jan-13 10:32:38

Now call me thick, but can anyone please tell me again WHY

Tyrone has no legal option to prove he is the father.
Why he can't legally demand a DNA test
Why he can't take legal action against Kirsty or even sweet talk her into legally making Ruby his.

Why is a fake wedding the only way for a man to prove paternity in modern day UK?

RobotLover68 Tue 01-Jan-13 14:30:21

YouOldTinsellySlag

cos it's soapland innit

YouOldTinsellySlag Tue 01-Jan-13 17:04:39

Ah yes! Soapland! Where Bianca Jackson can't claim benefits, nobody has a washing machine, ex cons get custody of babies without so much as proof of relation, somebody who looks like David Platt can actually land a wife, and you have to sell kebabs, work in a bar or be a builder in order to make a living.

Lighthousekeeping Tue 01-Jan-13 17:42:18

Im just in love with Carla's eyebrows.

LeeCoakley Tue 01-Jan-13 17:45:31

Now they've added an extra layer of horror. Tyrone's boiler fixing is the probably cause of Fizz's coma. Why do the writers have to do this? Tyrone has enough to put up with without this. Just let the two of them be happy with their babies - it's gone on long enough!

MrsSalvoMontalbano Tue 01-Jan-13 17:49:44

LHK - me too!

Lighthousekeeping Tue 01-Jan-13 18:34:56

Do you think they are hd brows? She's so lucky to be naturally dark I could never get mine to look like that. She's a very attractive woman. As if she would be wasting her time with Peter.

Bakingnovice Tue 01-Jan-13 21:00:13

Exactly! As if Carla would be with Peter in his manky flat. Also Tyrone is such an idiot.

soggycrockonboosh Tue 01-Jan-13 22:32:59

eew. Carla is so NOT attractive. Bloody whingy mare. Wish she would piss off back to LA. I mock her irritating voice. Stupid trampy fecking trollope. I hate her!

Nick and Kylie storyline is naff.

Lighthousekeeping Wed 02-Jan-13 00:19:42

Jealousy gets you nowhere

whatkungfuthat Wed 02-Jan-13 10:46:51

I don't think they are HD brows as she had the same ones in Dream Team and that was years ago.

MurielTheActor Wed 02-Jan-13 10:57:35

Ooh Kylie/baby thing - I like that. Just like The Archers grin

PoppyAmex Wed 02-Jan-13 15:44:35

"She's so lucky to be naturally dark I could never get mine to look like that."

Yeah, but with that pair of eyebrows comes a hair removal laser bill bigger than fair people can imagine <bitter experience>

Bakingnovice Wed 02-Jan-13 18:15:43

Love Carla's lips. Can't believe Tina has had hers done.

Glad they shipped off Anna Owen et al out for new year. Can't bear the surrogacy storyline. Tyrone is such a blob of nothingness. He should grow a pair and leave Kirsty then apply for parental rights like normal
People would do. In corrie it almost feels like they've run out of storylines so they think ' right let's just do loads of affairs'. Nick and kylie. Leanne and nearly Peter. Fizz and Tyrone. Sunita and Karl. Yawn.

Lighthousekeeping Wed 02-Jan-13 19:08:43

Where do they go to senior school after Bessie street? Do any of them feature after 11?

theliverpoolone Wed 02-Jan-13 20:23:22

Rosie Webster went to a private school, and had an affair with her teacher John Stape - but I don't think he taught at the private school, think she went back to the comp that Sophie went to, for 6th form maybe??? I remember Chesney being at senior school with Sophie too, but can't remember the name of it.

AmIthatTinselly Wed 02-Jan-13 20:24:34

Weatherfield Comp. Ken used to teach English there

theliverpoolone Wed 02-Jan-13 20:24:36

On the Kylie/baby thing - how are they going to explain that one, after they made such a big thing about her continuing to take the pill when she was with David confused

I'm dark (hair only, not skin) and my brows are nothing like that unfortunately, very patchy and have to be pencilled in carefully every day but still manage to sprout strays that really show sad.

Fiz went along to meet Ches at a school drama performance he was in and bumped into her old flame Stape who was teaching there. Seemed a bit unlikely that the pair of them would have been together years earlier when Fiz was a lot younger than him (or so it seemed) and being dragged up by Cilla or in care and in the Street from about age 15 yet he never featured? She must have been very young. Maybe no surprise then that he went for Rosie. I think Sophie was at school there too and Sally met him at parents evening and somehow persuaded him to give her private tutoring for A level English so he met Rosie at their house. Remember when Rosie was a goth and ran off with her first boyfriend? She was a much more likeable character back then.

Bakingnovice Wed 02-Jan-13 20:35:45

Really poor writing. Monday she's caught taking the pill. Friday she gets pg by nick.

Winterwalk Wed 02-Jan-13 20:53:55

Just wanted to say re the Frank Foster thing that a friend in the know has sold me it has been sensationalised and that yes, he did (allegedly) have sex with an underage girl but a) she was apparently 15 and b) he was apparently 19 or 20. So whilst it ain't good- its not quite in the same ball park as sexually abusing children although I know that's technically and legally what it is and why the newspapers can say so.

I don't know the man btw, just heard it being discussed by a friend who knows this sort or thing due to her business and as it had been discussed earlier on this thread I thought I'd let you all know what it appears the real circumstances are. Though I've no proff of course that my friend is correct but she seemed to know her facts.

They will write that she will have forgotten to take her pill during the arguing, or was sick after the drunken evening of lust!!

Carla Connors brows are tattooed!

KenDoddsDadsDog Fri 04-Jan-13 10:28:54

Where is Hope in all the Fizz debacle ?

YouOldTinsellySlag Fri 04-Jan-13 10:53:15

Hope went with Ches and Anna and Owen etc as fizz had "flu" and was too poorly to look after her.

LarkinSky Fri 04-Jan-13 12:20:36

I feel quite sorry for hopeless-hurt-puppy-faced Tommy. Although he was awful to Tina and needs to redeem himself. I wonder how it will all end?

KenDoddsDadsDog Fri 04-Jan-13 15:10:48

Ah, I thought she had gone upstairs like Rosue and Sawphie used to

Bakingnovice Fri 04-Jan-13 15:51:11

The CO poisoning story is silly. If the boiler did cause it then the others would have symptoms and need to be checked.

ajandjjmum Fri 04-Jan-13 16:06:02

The others did have symptoms, although obviously not as severe.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Fri 04-Jan-13 19:36:09

Gaily Tilsley/platt/mcintyre has just made me change the channel.

She has become the most irritating woman on tv!

MurielTheActor Fri 04-Jan-13 20:07:48

Gail/Lewis Euuuuwwwww!
So that was a total set up - the friend and the 'job'?
Whatever's coming to her - let it come quickly...

Lozario Fri 04-Jan-13 20:11:33

I just said to DH that Lewis deserves any money he can dupe out of her after having to go through that!!

KenDoddsDadsDog Fri 04-Jan-13 20:52:00

Noooooooooo I'm going to vomit

Jealousy gets you nowhere

Sorry, been reading back over the thread and noticed this comment.

Am presuming this is a) a half hearted attempt at a joke of b) some stray NMer ho got lost on the way to posting about jelus hatahs and gawjus huns

- if you don't think Carla is gorgeous, you must be be jealous -

FFS, please say this was a joke post

Lighthousekeeping Fri 04-Jan-13 23:58:55

Of course it was! I would've put a grin at the end but I got to my bus stop and had to get off.

AmIthatTinselly Sat 05-Jan-13 00:16:43

thank fuck for that!!!!

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 05-Jan-13 07:58:07

Who has set Gail up then ? Audrey Horseface ?

AmIthatTinselly Sat 05-Jan-13 09:06:45

Have just caught up on itv2 and am a bit confused.

I thought Lewis and Audrey were common knowledge? So why on earth did Sally not understand the "baggage" comment. Surely she knows he went out with Audrey.

..and what was with her asking if he was involved with Kevin. I really didn't understand that bit confused

NickNacks Sat 05-Jan-13 09:10:41

Gail didn't say who her mystery man was so Sally was just guessing it was Kevin. And everyone has baggage so she's not likely to guess its her mother's ex.

AmIthatTinselly Sat 05-Jan-13 09:16:18

Ah, I thought that she had said it was Lewis, that makes sense then, thanks.

MurielTheActor Sat 05-Jan-13 11:25:26

Lewis has set it all up to get back at Gail for destroying him and Audrey.
Nothing short of public humiliation will do.
But then most characters seem to recover from public humiliation quite quickly hmm
Maybe private humiliation would be better and she has to carry the secret of her pain because she won't be able to tell anyone grin

Lighthousekeeping Sat 05-Jan-13 15:21:39

He plays the charmer so well, doesn't he?

whatkungfuthat Sat 05-Jan-13 16:41:52

He does. I am just wondering what form her total humiliation will take. He seems to really have feelings for Audrey so I wondered if it was something along the lines of getting Gail to broadcast her undying love for him and him denying everything to make Gail look deluded? There is clearly a financial element to it though, so that would be the kiss of death to him reconciling with Audrey if he conned her daughter.

Lozario Sat 05-Jan-13 21:37:25

Maybe he's thinking of ripping her off knowing that she can't tell anyone if he does, because it would then reveal her betrayal of Audrey? That would be clever. She wouldn't be able to go to the police or it would presumably all come out.

Bakingnovice Sat 05-Jan-13 21:44:12

I really really detest this storyline. Wish he'd just get back with horsey.

AmIthatTinselly Sat 05-Jan-13 22:15:34

yes, he suited Audrey. I needed to bleach my eyeballs after seeing him and Gail locking lips

SlatternismyMiddlename Sun 06-Jan-13 10:30:20

I sky+ Corrie and have made it a policy to fast forward through any scenes with Gail and Lewis in it. It still pains me to watch it speeded up.

Kenanddreary Tue 08-Jan-13 14:55:37

Not at all bothered about watching Lewis with Gail - more funny than yuk - but still don't get why he is so intent on revenge instead of getting back with Audrey where he belongs!!

I wish Lewis had turned out nice after all, this is far too far fetched. Gail is so naive. Feel sorry for Audrey.

Where has Stella's mum gone? Suddenly noticed she's not there any more.

Kenanddreary Tue 08-Jan-13 15:41:49

Gloria was sent packing after what she did to Audrey. Not sure where - can't remember!

Yes - isn't Gail naive?! And how does she think this will help her relationship with her mother? confused

Oh yes, plus the humiliation of the pub of the year thing, Gloria had to go I suppose. Wonder if she'll be back?

No wonder Gail's children struggle to establish/maintain relationships with her for a role model. Audrey is the only person in that family who isn't entirely selfish and entitled.

YouOldSlag Tue 08-Jan-13 16:28:46

Ken- I agree. It seems silly that he is spending all his energy on this elaborate long game to trick Gail when Audrey would have had him back and they could have just carried on as they were.

whatkungfuthat Tue 08-Jan-13 16:48:55

Is he leaving? Otherwise why such an elaborate and pointless storyline?

PoppyAmex Tue 08-Jan-13 17:52:31

Yes, this storyline is just silly - he should've got back to Audrey.

For some bizarre reason, I found Sunita and Karl's trysts much more revolting.

I recoil from Carl and Sunita, he is such a cocklodger (to borrow a MN term).

whatkungfuthat Tue 08-Jan-13 19:14:58

Urgh, Carl is just vile. Sunitta is an idiot for not booting him out months ago.

I keep waiting for Kirsty to find that phone <cringe>

Lighthousekeeping Tue 08-Jan-13 19:20:32

That Peter is downright nasty. The physio is getting on my tits. As is Sawphie.

I haven't watched it all yet.

Lighthousekeeping Tue 08-Jan-13 19:22:17

But I will remind you all that is was me who predicted it from day one smile

I wish Sheila Grant would come back.

The whole thing is getting on my tits at the moment. Can't think of any storylines that I'm particularly enjoying. There are usually one or two good things going on amongst the dross but not at the moment.

Binfullofresolutionsfor10thjan Tue 08-Jan-13 19:40:21

Has anyone seen the Tyrone/Kirsty wedding pics?

Lighthousekeeping Tue 08-Jan-13 19:45:30

No. So it's happening then?

Binfullofresolutionsfor10thjan Tue 08-Jan-13 19:56:23

www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2243416/Coronation-Streets-Kirsty-Soames-wears-ugly-violet-fishtail-wedding-dress-big-day.html

Daily Fail alert. I love the way they talk about Kirsty, as if she's actually a real live evil person...

Bakingnovice Tue 08-Jan-13 20:42:26

Oh I agree with everything. It's total shit at the moment. How many near deaths can we have on one street? Sophie left nearly dead in a car crash and now fully recovered. Fizz declared DOA in hospital to wake up totally fine. And for all the utter shittiness Lewis has put others through the moment he gets pranked he decides to ruin Gail and Gloria. So he can dish it out but not take it.

And I agree also that Peter is utter utter knob. Physio is cold and weird. Sophie annoying. Tyrone an idiot always letting friends take the blame for his dumbness. Oh and all of a sudden 80 year old Emily is chief babysitter for hope/ Joseph/ ruby!! Ha. I haven't watched since new year but have sky plussed it. Dreading getting to the liplock of Gail and Diana lookalike Lewis. Ew.

Bakingnovice Tue 08-Jan-13 20:52:51

Have to add this which I just posted on the Gail thread:

Have to say I met Gail whilst walking through the west end last year (as yer do) and screamed 'omg its Gail platt' really loud. It just came out. She was absolutely lovely. Really soft spoken and polite. She stopped for photos (yes am that sad) and a long chat about horrid kylie was. We made her late for her show but she was lovely. And very bouncy hair in real life.

Lighthousekeeping Tue 08-Jan-13 21:20:27

I hope you didn't make her either for a show she had come all the way down to London to see or, a show that she was starring in!! Did she tell you that? You don't mean proper late do you?

Bakingnovice Tue 08-Jan-13 21:36:22

I think it was one she was going to see. And it wasn't too late, just pre show drinks she said. But she was with a very handsome fella. Think she's engaged to him now. But she seemed really happy to have been recognised, said that it rarely happened. I was surprised as she does have, erm, a very, erm, distinctive face.

Lighthousekeeping Tue 08-Jan-13 21:55:07

Can you imagine having to keep Gail Tilsley out of a west end show until the interval cos she was late? grin

FlouryWhiteBaps Wed 09-Jan-13 15:49:16

Sniggering here at Bakingnovice describing Lewis as a Diana lookalike. But also <hard stare> because I love Nige - have had a crush on him for decades. The flicker of "Wtf?" that passed across Lewis' face after Gail's wittering about the poetry of Pam Ayres was a joy to behold.

How long before Tina and Tommy are reconciled? A fortnight? Then break up again a fortnight after that? The get back together again a fortn...blah blah blah.

And how many times must we put up with Leanne dramatically announcing her immediate departure from Weatherfield after yet another lovers' tiff?

Do love Corrie though grin.

MrsSalvoMontalbano Wed 09-Jan-13 17:32:49

I wish Lewis would get a haircut. Sophie boring, the physio just weird - completely humourless what's the attraction? lol at accosting gail platt, glad she was nicegrin

Bakingnovice Wed 09-Jan-13 18:07:29

Floury - I do like Nige too. Wish they'd just left him with aud as Ido think he used to be a good character. Agree re Tina and tommy. Yawn. Corrie seems to be repeating every one of its storylines.

Mrs salvo - Gail was lovely. But did point Out she hadn't been Gail PLATT for many years. She was Gail McIntyre back then but think she's since killed mr McIntyre off (metaphorically speaking).

Somebody give Lewis a haircut. Him and Audrey have the same hairstyle!

YouOldSlag Wed 09-Jan-13 18:11:54

Maybe he was only with Audrey so he could borrow her Clairol Big Hair Heated Styler.

Lighthousekeeping Wed 09-Jan-13 18:20:14

The physio is totally weird and it would be wrong if she suddenly started fancying Sophie.

Bakingnovice Wed 09-Jan-13 19:37:43

Yes yes! She's too old for Sophie. Seems inappropriate for some reason.

Very inappropriate, they should not be drinking together in the pub let alone snogging. Especially bad given that Sophie is so young.

Bakingnovice Wed 09-Jan-13 21:04:56

Sophie is one of the worst characters in corrie at the moment. Doesn't ever seem to have any point to her apart from finding other lesbians.

FlouryWhiteBaps Wed 09-Jan-13 21:34:45

Sophie and Sian were quite sweet though, until it went tits up.

Now hey everyone, stop being snarky about Lewis' lovely barnet, if anyone's doing a Lady Di flick it's Ken Barlow. Agree Lewis should be with Audrey, luvveh.

Nick's forehead wrinkles are starting to match Jeffrey Archer's. Is he meant to be the same age as Leanne?

Bakingnovice Wed 09-Jan-13 23:02:18

Never noticed nick wrinkles. Every time he's on I can't stop staring at his prince Charles ears. He does remind me of Charles. Something to do with his mouth.

Reminds me of Andrew Marr.

Binfullofresolutionsfor10thjan Thu 10-Jan-13 06:31:34

I generally like the Nick character, but the pained expression he's been wearing for the last 6 months must be exhausting. Let's hope the wedding cheers him up.

I do enjoy Lewis' subtle jibes to Gail, about poetry, culture, beauty etc.

Definitely a narcissistic character, seeking revenge at this level of detail after all the women he's conned in his life. Anna's been listening to most of it in the caff, though, soi think she might save the day when it all comes out?

whatkungfuthat Thu 10-Jan-13 08:17:22

Anna's listening in was quite funny. I don't really want her to save the day though, Gail is horrible and smug.

Binfullofresolutionsfor10thjan Thu 10-Jan-13 08:23:03

My friend once told me he thought Gail's judgey pants expression looked like "a trout swallowing an apple" grin

whatkungfuthat Thu 10-Jan-13 08:35:17

grin

FlouryWhiteBaps Thu 10-Jan-13 10:04:46

Poor Gail! Sounds like she can pull a looker though from what pp said.

I do like Nick's laugh.

Does anyone have any spoilers for how the Gail & Lewis thing pans out? I did read that the producers originally planned to kill him off but there was upr, so they wrote in a break because Nigel Havers was doing pantomime but then he'd be back long term.

Bakingnovice Thu 10-Jan-13 16:18:04

Oh yes, I'm sure there were photos of him In a car crash.

YouOldSlag Thu 10-Jan-13 16:28:39

Yes it might have been me who said that upthread Floury. He was initially going to be killed or run over just in time for panto season but viewers and producers liked him so extended the contract and let him live! The cad!

Lighthousekeeping Thu 10-Jan-13 17:23:45

He's great isn't he? I don't blame him for wanting to take the physical side "slowly" with Gail. It's making me book. Do you think he's up himself on set? Remember him in the jungle?

Lighthousekeeping Thu 10-Jan-13 17:24:10

Boak not book.

PoppyAmex Thu 10-Jan-13 17:49:43

I'm going to open a bottle of champagne when they air an episode in which Leanne is happy and smiling. Might've mentioned it before, but CAN'T STAND HER!

whatkungfuthat Thu 10-Jan-13 18:32:15

I sat next to him once in a restaurant in Soho. In truth we were on different tables but there was a long banquette seat all along the back wall and he was next to me. He was very softly spoken and looked a bit try-hard in a sheepskin flying jacket that he kept on all through lunch.

Binfullofresolutionsfor10thjan Thu 10-Jan-13 20:21:33

That poor lad Simon should be in an institution by now, the amount of people he's been shared around, and overnight flits to new starts.

I hope he comes back as an evil mucked up baddie in 20 years!!

Got your champagne open yet Poppy? Lewis is obviously very keen not to DTD with Gail.

I feel sorry for Simon too, he must go to school every day not knowing where he's going to be living that night. Or who with.

Bakingnovice Sat 12-Jan-13 10:58:48

Im a bit behind but my god Tyrone!! What a spineless, gutless, gormless, pathetic character. Daft as a flippin brush. And I swear if I hear 'how's fizz' from him again (whilst trying to act surreptitious) I'm gonna throw my remote at the telly.

And as if Gail would fall for Lewis Italy scam after he's done it so many times before. Oh, and heard from my sources that Tina had lips teeth done to try out the US pilot season market.

ProfYaffle Sat 12-Jan-13 11:21:19

I'm really enjoying the Gail and Lewis storyline. Can't stand Gail and am loving the way Lewis has the measure of her character and is happily encouraging her worst traits. I just hope the rest of her family shun her forever, interfering bint grin

whatkungfuthat Sat 12-Jan-13 12:57:02

Me too, loved how they had her sitting all alone in the pub with just her prissy face for company.

Binfullofresolutionsfor10thjan Sat 12-Jan-13 13:17:16

Awww I love Tyrone. He always looks so lost and sweet.

I want more of Sean in the storylines. But then I always do. I love him. I hope he can meet someone and fall in love again.

It's Karl I want to slap with a wet fish. Do you think a Dev/Sunita reunion is back on the cards?

YouOldSlag Sat 12-Jan-13 16:03:53

Im a bit behind but my god Tyrone!! What a spineless, gutless, gormless, pathetic character. I disagree. He's trapped and if Kirsty finds out he will never see his daughter again.

YouOldSlag Sat 12-Jan-13 16:04:37

Binfull- yes Sunita will go back to Dev I reckon. It's like putting on an old pair of slippers for her. Poor Dev.

whatkungfuthat Sat 12-Jan-13 16:18:06

I don't care about Carl or Sunita, they both deserve it. Nick is being an arse to Kylie, its not likely to be his anyway is it?

UnknownGnome Sat 12-Jan-13 16:24:32

Not likely to be his, kungfu? Ordinarily the chances would be pretty low but as this is Coronation Street...the probability that it's his is very high grin

UnknownGnome Sat 12-Jan-13 16:26:31

I also disagree about Tyrone being a "spineless, gutless, gormless, pathetic" character. He's the victim of domestic abuse, and is can't do anything about his situation for fear of losing his daughter. I think he's playing it well. I only hope it works out well for him in the end.

YouOldSlag Sat 12-Jan-13 16:50:35

Re: Karl and Sunita. Although they are both at fault, I hated how Karl blamed Sunita for making sure they got caught. After all- he was the one who undid his trousers!

It's like he's playing the innocent card even though it take two to tango.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 12-Jan-13 16:52:18

Why has Karl left Sunita ? I have missed a few eps.

When Sunita first came back and looked like getting back with Dev I was on here saying "Don't do it!". I now think going back to him would be the best option for her. She is a silly woman, she had that lovely big house, was engaged to someone who seemed nice and now look at her, penniless and trapped with a cheating, lying, layabout. Another one who's kids I feel sorry for.

Numberlock Sat 12-Jan-13 16:56:51

Please don't let Cindy take Karl back.

YouOldSlag Sat 12-Jan-13 17:01:36

Ken- Karl, who as you know is a shit, got drunk and passed out for the night in the Rovers. he and Stella had a chat the next day and she mentioend the text she sent him the night he and Sunita got caught out. Sunita had seen the text on Karl's phone, which was from Stella saying she was on her way back. Naughty Sunita deleted it so they would get caught and Karl would have to leave Stella.

Karl is now saying Sunita ruined his life, as if he was a monk or something. she was in the wrong for sure, but he didn't have to shag her did he!

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 12-Jan-13 17:03:56

Ah right ! I just caught the bit about the cold dinner! Thank you.

YouOldSlag Sat 12-Jan-13 17:10:28

Ken- yeah he was being even more of a rude bastard as he had just found out about the text.

cantheyseeme Sat 12-Jan-13 17:23:14

I Have a softspot for carl.... I knowwww its bad isn't it! Theyre bringing back sarah louise platt, and her daughter will be 13 and the papers are hinting that shes gonna get pregnant like sarah did at 13....

Lighthousekeeping Sat 12-Jan-13 17:30:35

I will be annoyed if that child is speaking pure manc and doesn't have a hint of an Italian accent. Also, if Sarah Lou comes back from having an interesting job in Milan to working in the knicker factory. I wish someone would be successful down that street. I miss Mike Baldwin.

Re Tyrone. I know why you like him youslag but the 'if he reacts he will never see ruby again' is bullshit. He's got photographic and dr evidence of injuries. It's his house. He's the main carer. Surely that's enough to at least get him contact!! I think he's spineless as he always lands Tina and tommy and fizz in it. He shouldn't have been fixing the boiler, he shouldn't have let fizz lose her job and he shouldn't let tommy be blamed for the boiler.

Eileen's man (trouser-smell fireman) makes me boak. He is so greasy haired and oily looking. I agree that the whole Tyrone business is far-fetched and ridiculous, there must be another way surely?

Baking, but Kirsty deliberately left him off the birth certificate so he has no rights to Ruby unless he marries her and then gets parental responsibility rights.

However I do agree that the writers have gone round the houses a bit with this one as in real life, I'm willing to bet one visit to a solicitor would present a solution.

YouOldSlag Sat 12-Jan-13 18:32:17

cantheysee- I agree about Max Branning. Apparently in real life Jake Wood is a devoted Dad and husband and has even written plays. Awww. He has a je ne sais quoi.

Bakingnovice Sat 12-Jan-13 20:09:33

Youoldslag - in real life he wouldn't marry her but apply for a parental responsibility order via the court. But he's always been gormless and pathetic. Remember when he was so horrible to Tina and tommy at the start. I've known Dom abuse sufferers and quite often they are strong, resilient and not all are weak and stupid like Tyrone. I also don't like that they've made his character so duplicitous with the affair and with the farcical wedding to Kirsty after which he will walk away. He loses some of the moral high ground.

Oh my god. Leanne's coat!! Sorry if anyone on this thread has one.

It is hideous.

YouOldSlag Sat 12-Jan-13 23:16:21

Baking, I agree on the legal thing- I posted elsewhere asking why on earth he has to pretend to love a woman and then marry her in order to kidnap his own baby without getting arrested. I said I was sure there was a simpler legal way. However, I guess this is soapland and a visit to a solicitor's office isn't as dramatically engaging as a fight between goodies and baddies.

I still disagree about tyrone being spineless. He is a victim and i applaud the storyline and its depiction of his awful feeling of being trapped.

God Carl is one almightly cock lodger!

MurielTheActor Mon 14-Jan-13 23:26:15

Who is there for Carl to get involved with now hmm
GAIL!
She'll need some comforting once Lewis has done his dirty work...

YouOldSlag Tue 15-Jan-13 07:24:28

Carl is a total shit. I loved how Stella kicked him into touch when he tried to blame Sunita for "making him" have an affair!

Now for goodness sake, when is Kirsty going to get her come-uppance? About 9 million people want to see her revealed as a villain, so hurry up Corrie!

Honestly, they create a really good storyline and then string it out until everyone gets annoyed.

theliverpoolone Tue 15-Jan-13 13:22:55

I've got a horrible feeling they'll put Carl back with Stella - there's not much point to him otherwise. Unless he gets together with Eva...... that'd be a good storyline grin

ajandjjmum Tue 15-Jan-13 13:49:21

I'd just like to have one happy ending - and I can't see that any are in sight.

PoppyAmex Tue 15-Jan-13 16:14:43

Quick aside: is anyone watching "Mr. Selfridge" on ITV?

Becky is playing an aristocrat and it's SO weird to hear her talk like that! grin

The pregnancy storyline is already doing my head in. As if that could happen when she's on the pill and so didn't want to get pregnant.

whatkungfuthat Tue 15-Jan-13 16:34:18

The Fiz/Tyrone/Kirsty storyline is very frustrating and I doubt it will be straightforward. They are talking about him only having to put up with it for one more week but doesn't he have to formalise something with regard to Ruby rather than just bugger off? And why was he apologising to Kirsty for marking the paintwork on HIS house, especially when the whole place looks like the 80's threw up on it?

The Nick and Kylie pregnancy thing is annoying too. They are talking about hiding the truth for 'the rest of their lives' but surely they only need worry if David isn't the father and Nick can easily afford a DNA test so the uncertainty is just until the baby is born. <and relax>

YouOldSlag Tue 15-Jan-13 16:37:23

Lighthouse- she said she'd forgot a few pills as she's rowed with David, but even so, she must be super fertile!

Bakingnovice Tue 15-Jan-13 23:03:57

As if!! That whole story happened over about four episodes. That
