Coronation Street Wiki


Curly grows weary of Spider's protest and tries to make him see that he is not his enemy. He knows that Spider has a point so clears the prawns out of the freezer. Deirdre goes to see her barrister, Mr Imison, who doesn't fill her with any confidence. Spider is victorious when Curly removes the prawns and promises him that he won't stock any more. Eric Firman rings Curly and insists that he puts the prawns back in the freezer. Deirdre hates herself for being fool enough to trust Jon. She toys with the idea of suicide but Mike removes her tablets. Des has the lads round to watch football so Samantha goes to Chris's flat. Hayley tells Alma that she used to be a man and is grateful when she isn't horrified.
