Coronation Street Wiki


Sally wants Kevin to plead for his job but he's too proud to do so and sounds off to Martin instead. Curly spends the morning coaxing Raquel Wolstenhulme into her Miss Bettabuy swimsuit for the "Grand Trolley Dash". Reg makes sure that Rita attends. Martin asks Mark to take Kevin back on but finds he has already taken on another mechanic. Ken invites Alma to share a meal with him at the flat, in return for Alma asking him before. Reg refuses to let the draw for the trolley dash take place until Rita is present. Reg pulls out the winning ticket, which Raquel reads out to the eager band of shoppers. Rita is the winner. Curly helps her run around the store in two minutes grabbing what they can. Kevin gets an offer of a job at Walker's tyre and exhaust garage. He's shocked when Sally informs him about the new mechanic and thinks Mark must have been planning to sack him to have a replacement lined up so quickly. He feels that Mark never saw him as a friend. Rita gives the goods to the hospital; she realises Reg fixed the draw. Curly is certain that Kimberley really loves him. Vera spreads it around that the draw was a fiddle. Rita accuses Reg of fixing it so that she'd win. He pleads guilty to the charge, with the excuse that he wanted an attractive winner as photos were being taken. Curly decides to tell Kimberley's parents what he thinks of them. Ken and Alma have a pleasant evening together. Alf thinks the flat can't be as badly in need of work as Ken made out if he's entertaining. Outside the Taylors' house, Curly sees Kimberley in another man's arms.
