Coronation Street Wiki


Mavis returns from hospital after being concussed from being thrown off the Mile Muncher. Knowing that Bet works at the Rovers, Tricia asks her to put in a good word with the "slab-faced" landlady as she wants a job. Audrey feels she should go to the function for the sake of Weatherfield as Betty will be an embarrassment. Mavis tells Rita how she tried out the Mile Muncher in her court shoes and was flung off. Steve tells Liz to keep out of his affairs and lays into her for having a go at Fiona. He accuses her of living in a slum and being jealous of all his money. Liz is upset and resigns from the bookies. Audrey changes tactics and starts being nice to Alf. Derek has no sympathy for Mavis and thinks she's play-acting. Des admits to Liz he never wanted her employed but he feels bad about the way he treated her. He asks her to come back and promises he'll keep Steve away from her. Vera accuses Tricia of being a tart and leading Jack on, thinking he was thumped for going out with her. Audrey turns on all her charms for Alf but he is adamant Betty will meet the princess. Martin puts it in Derek's mind that he could sue Mile Muncher for damages over Mavis's injuries. Tricia is horrified to discover Bet is the landlady. Steve apologises to Liz and tells her that he's given up gambling. Curly is stunned to discover Tricia has moved into No.1. Derek starts being over-sympathetic to Mavis.
