Coronation Street Wiki


Judy is upset that Joyce has gone back to her thieving ways. Gary tries to keep the peace as Judy tackles Joyce about her winnings and asks for her £45 back. Joyce stalls her so Judy accuses her of not having any money left. Judy pleads with Joyce to admit that she's got money problems so they can help her but Joyce swears she hasn't. Judy is upset when Joyce walks out on her, saying she'll never return. Liz puts new locks on her flat and is horrified when Sean tells her that he's been warned off her by a thug. Claire is annoyed when Becky lets it slip about them trying to deceive the RAF by keeping an empty flat. Becky points out that she's upset because she's not being devious enough. Ken is glad when Deirdre agrees to stay the night with him. She works hard listening sympathetically to him talking about leaving Daniel in Brian Dunkley's company. Curly makes dreams about where he'd like to visit when he leaves Weatherfield. Mavis shows the allotment holders the plant that Des gave her in the hope they'll identify it. Wilf Gaskell identifies it as cannabis. The Wiltons are horrified, especially when Alan sees the plant and tells them to destroy it. Derek tells him they were given it by Des. Sean tells Liz that Fraser Henderson used to run the drugs and protection ring in South Manchester. He frightens her by telling her the flat is probably being watched and says they should stop seeing each other. Alan questions Des about the cannabis and tells him that he was stupid to play a joke on Mavis. Liz accuses Sean of chickening out because he's frightened of Fraser. Sean admits he is frightened of him and offers to help Liz move out of the area. She's appalled and throws him out.
