Storylines

January

  • Finding out that Faye Windass previously willingly slept with Ray Crosby and therefore doesn’t think an allegation of rape will stick for her defence, Gary attempts to smuggle the trophy weapon out of No.4 but is discovered in the act by Craig Tinker and arrested for assault, being remanded in prison. When Faye thinks she’s pregnant, Tim finds out what really happened. Supported by Craig, she confesses to being Adam Barlow’s assailant to the police, and to Adam himself who forgives her. She’s released pending a formal charge.

Evicted by Ray Crosby, the Platt family prepare to leave 8 Coronation Street.

  • The planning application is granted after Ray bribes the panel’s chairperson, Susan, and he begins proceedings to evict the tenants from their properties as soon as possible. They discover the agreements they have signed for alternative properties are not as watertight as they’d assumed and their protests continue. Roy Cropper applies for a judicial review of the application. Debbie Webster is aghast to find out about the bribe and even more so when Ray is arrested for the attempted rape of Faye. Abi Franklin obtains taped evidence of the bribe and it makes its way to social media after Ray tries to drug her to get it back. Susan is arrested and Debbie hides Ray from the police, planning to spirit him away to a new life in Turkey on condition he signs over all the business to her. The application is rescinded. Forced by Abi, Debbie arranges to sell all the properties back to their former owners. She hides her part in Ray's escape by telling Abi she murdered Ray in self-defence.
  • Grace Vickers is released from prison and Michael Bailey discovers she is pregnant with his child. Delighted at the thought of being a father, he decides to take an active part in the birth and upbringing of the baby. He announces to his shocked parents that Grace is moving into No.3. Aggie Bailey and Grace declare an uneasy truce for appearances's sake.
  • Arthur Medwin’s wife dies. He decides to move to Canada and asks Evelyn Plummer to go with him. She decides to stay in Weatherfield and they say their goodbyes.
  • Simon Barlow discovers Leanne Battersby has been alone in the flat and not ready to face the outside world. He decides to support her alone.
  • Johnny Connor is sentenced to eight months in the same prison as Gary. Once inside, he struggles with his MS.
  • Asha Alahan does badly in her mock GCSE’s. With Nina Lucas’s support she finishes with Corey Brent when she realises that he’s using her. She and Nina grow close.
  • Peter Barlow returns from Scotland, his liver still not recovering from the abuse. He refuses a transplant from Daniel Osbourne and continues to drink. Jenny Connor asks him to leave the Rovers and he moves into No.1. He rejects Carla Connor’s support and accepts he’s going to die. Feeling rejected, Carla is tempted by an old flame, Lucas Kempton, but Peter changes his mind and begs her to stay with him. She does so.
  • Momentarily homeless because of the development, Alina Pop moves briefly into No.9. Tyrone supports her in taking up a college course to support her beautician ambitions.
  • Dylan Wilson is suspended from school in London for standing up for Sean Tully when his friends find out he has a gay father and fighting them. Violet Wilson sends him up north to spend time with Sean. He decides to buy his own flat for the two of them and pushes Chesney Brown hard for his money from Double Glammy.
  • Gail Rodwell discovers that George Shuttleworth is a distant relative and they become friends, making Eileen Grimshaw and Mary Taylor jealous.
