Coronation Street Wiki


Minnie and Handel set off for the Sunday service at the Victoria Street Mission and invite an unwilling Billy along. Elsie is surprised that Mark is a churchgoer when he goes to a service. Alan tells Elsie that Mark overheard her and Len and found it embarrassing to be in the same house with them. Elsie is livid. Albert drives Val mad with his complaints about Handel. Billy's room is finished. Betty tells Annie of the interest Billy has been showing in Irma. She decides to call on her. Billy reluctantly agrees to move back when his mother tells him he can do so. Alan tells Elsie that she's not to let Len in the house when he's not there but she point-blank refuses and tells Alan that he shouldn't believe Mark just because he's his son. Annie tells Irma to keep away from Billy, citing class differences. Elsie summons Len from next door and gets Len to tell Alan that nothing went on between them. Alan is angry when Elsie calls Mark a liar. Billy moves back to the Rovers and tells Handel to look after Minnie. An amused Irma tells Billy about Annie's warning and they decide to hatch a plot to teach Annie a lesson. Elsie confronts Mark when he returns from church. He denies everything but then tells her that he wants Alan to be happy, inferring that she isn't the one to do that. She walks out. Billy tells Irma that he still resents the way that Annie treated Jasmine Choong and he tries to think of a way of getting back at her. Alan accuses Mark of being jealous of Elsie and tells him that he will not let him turn him against her. Mark wants to know if he ever counted. Annie is annoyed to hear from Maggie that Billy and Irma are with each other. Irma suggests that they put on a show of having just got married. A chance remark from Irma gives Billy an idea. Elsie returns and Alan tells her that he believes her and that Mark is jealous of her. She tells Alan that his son is his responsibility and to do what he thinks is right. Billy tells a stunned Annie he can't finish with Irma, even if he wanted to, hinting that she is pregnant.
