Coronation Street Wiki


Jack spends a cold night under the Platts' caravan. Derek searches The Kabin stockroom thinking Mavis has hidden Arthur. When she catches him he is remorseful. Jim doesn't like having polite Samir in his house as he feels uncomfortable with him. Vera fears Jack's been involved in an accident but Sarah finds him under the caravan. Vera's relief takes the form of anger and she goes for him. Fiona is amazed when Maxine suggests they pocket money rather than putting it through the till. Fiona refuses to let her, wanting to run everything properly. Nick entertains his girlfriend Melanie Hesketh at No.5. Billy calls on Betty. They are both disturbed that they've found each other again. Betty feels Billy ignored her letters as he thought ill of her for sleeping with him. He tells her that he never received the letters and in fact wrote some to her but they must have been censored during the war. Seeing the Duckworths bickering makes Gail realise how much she's got with Martin. When Jack minds the children she makes love to Martin. Jim is horrified when Samir tells him the reason he is nervous is because he is frightened about giving his kidney to Tracy. He explains he never thought he'd be compatible and now feels obliged to carry on with the operation as he doesn't want Deirdre to think ill of him.
