Coronation Street Wiki


Spider and Roy spend the night in the tent. Alf ignores them, feeling they'll get tired of the cold but Audrey is mortified by their presence. Zoe tells Ashley she's desperate for a night out and asks him to babysit. Emily supports Spider and Roy by feeding them. Audrey rows with her for supporting thugs but she phones the Gazette to alert them about the protest. Ken is shocked when Deirdre tells him the wedding is off but refuses to go into details. Leanne and Nick return to the Street sad that they can't spend any more nights together. Gail accuses Nick of being sly, running off with Leanne. He assures her he wasn't stupid and she isn't pregnant. Janice is annoyed as Les doesn't seem to care what happens to Leanne. Leanne tells her she can look after herself. The Gazette reporter isn't interested in the protest until Audrey phones for the police and starts manhandling the protesters.
