Coronation Street Wiki


Des tells Mavis that he'll miss her when she leaves. She is touched by his sentiments. Mavis agrees to sell No.4 to Fred. Fiona begs Jim to have a test to make sure he's still sterile. He is sickened when he realises she'd abort the baby if she thought he was the father. Sally is annoyed when Kevin sends the girls a postcard. Steve is taken in for questioning on a drugs charge. Des and Samantha go off on holiday. Sally is disappointed when Chris moves back in with Angie for the duration of Des's holiday. Jim tells Fiona that Steve has been arrested and it's obvious Alan is behind it. Alan taunts Steve in his cell. Steve doesn't understand why Alan has had him locked up; he's no threat to Fiona now as she's having his baby.
