Coronation Street Wiki


Shannon's cries annoy Liam but Zoe is happy that they're a family at last. Liam tells her to face reality - they've got nothing to offer the baby. Liz turns to Jim for help, telling him everything's falling apart for her and she feels lonely, useless and old. Liam thinks they should sell Shannon back to the Malletts so she can grow up having nice things. Jim gently points out to Liz that she can't run to him every time she has a setback. Les takes possession of a live turkey from Charlie West, telling a horrified Janice that it's their Christmas dinner. Kevin demands to know how much time Chris spent with his daughters and accuses Sally of sneaking her toy boy in and out of the house. She tells him that he has no right to accuse her of anything. Liam tells the Malletts they can have "Katie" back for £2,000. Gary throws him out of the house, telling Judy that they'll always be paying. Judy is upset that he won't consider the idea. Sally tells Kevin he's played right into Natalie's hands; she knows he thinks more about his injured pride than her or the girls. She tells him that he makes her sick. Behind Gary's back, Judy tells Liam she'll get the money for him.
