Coronation Street Wiki


Part One: Emma and Faye argue over whether to call the police. The girls assume that Ted died from injuries sustained in the crash and realise they'll be in trouble for not reporting it. Abi lies convincingly to Kevin and makes out that she and Imran were rowing over Kelly. Sally passes her health check with flying colours, while Tim tells her that he did too. As Sally notes they deserve a treat and suggests going for chips, Tim is strangely reluctant. Faye realises how bad it looks that they left Ted on his own to die and suggests that they leave the flat, removing any trace that they were ever there. Checkmated by Roy, Mary suggests that Sam might like to come back tomorrow and have a lesson. Sam smiles and nods. Sarah asks Nick to make out to Adam that she's about ready to move on. Nick says she should do it herself and defends her husband, pointing out that everyone has a history. Imran worries when Tyrone tells him that Kevin just got a text message and rushed off from the garage. As Emma and Faye clean the flat to remove their fingerprints, they're interrupted by a knock at the door.

Part Two: Emma is forced to take in a parcel from a delivery driver after he sees her through the letterbox. Adam assures Sarah that he only cares about her and Harry and couldn't care less about Lydia. Sarah thaws towards him. The girls return to the street, having agreed to keep the accident a secret. Craig looks into flats for him and Faye but discovers they're all too expensive. Abi calls at the builder's yard flat and tells Imran that everything is alright. She's unable to say more as Toyah is there. A furtive Tim takes call confirming an appointment. Faye tells a guilty Emma that they did all they could, reminding her that Ted took responsibility for the collision. Emma assures her that she can keep the secret.
