Coronation Street Wiki


Claire is bemused about sleeping in a grotty flat and living at No.6. She shows Carol Palmer around her new home, suffering her opinions of how low she's sunk. Percy decides to take part in the school sponsored walk. Alf is determined to out-walk him. Jim gives Liz £1,000. She thanks him. Carol tells Claire it's obvious that the flat is a charade and that she's still living with Des. Ken acts as master of ceremonies at the school fete. In his rush to out-walk Percy, Alf trips and sprains his ankle. He is attended by Dr Stirling who tells him that he's written to the DVLA saying that he feels he isn't fit to drive a car. Fred attends the fete and meets Sue Jeffers, reminding her of their childhood when they were next-door neighbours. She is horrified when he tells her that he's heard about her being carried out of Ken's hotel room. Bill's plans to celebrate his birthday are spoiled when Maureen has to look after sick Maud. Maud is upset as she wants Maureen to go out with Bill. Sue accuses Ken of telling people about her accident.
