Coronation Street Wiki


Alec tells Vicky that he'll move out to a five-star hotel. Judy is furious when Gary pays the horse's feeding bill with their holiday money. Ashley and Kelly arrange to have a date in the Rovers, both terribly shy of actually asking the other out. Don tells Kevin that he intends to be a good boss and pump the profits back into the business. Percy catches Jamie hanging around the back alley, skiving off school. Jamie sees a girl steal Josie's bike from the backyard and chases after her. When Percy hears about the missing bike he tells Don that Jamie must have stolen it. Jamie follows the thief and grapples with her for the bike. When he calls for help she runs off. Maureen is sick of Maud getting at her, encouraging her to get out and forget Reg. Jamie returns Josie's bike. She offers him a reward but Don stops her, telling her that Jamie stole it in the first place. He swears he didn't. Tricia goes for Josie when she calls Jamie a thief and tells her about his puncture tricks. Tricia throws Josie out before turning on Jamie, demanding the truth. Alec tells Vicky that he's decided to move into a B&B run by ex-chorus girl Jessie Wilcox and her husband Charlie. He explains he'd feel more at home there than at a big hotel. Jamie tells Tricia all about his puncture scam but swears he did not steal the bike. Tricia warns him that if he's not careful he'll be taken into care. Don and Josie are alarmed when Kevin tells them that the garage compressor has broken and it'll cost £5,000 for a new one.
