Coronation Street Wiki


Mike tells Alma that she's being ridiculous if she seriously thinks he's having an affair with Deirdre; he just feels sorry for her. Ken is amazed to discover Mike paid £10,000 for Deirdre's defence. Angie tells Mike that a London firm, Jarvis Rousseau Associates, want her to work with them and she wants to dissolve their partnership. Warder Maggie Veitch lets Deirdre believe her appeal is going to be heard and takes her off to the outside door before telling her to realise she is guilty and isn't going to be released; she's a criminal like the rest of the girls and must stop saying she's innocent. When Greg shows him an old photograph of his mother, Les realises that he really is his son. Greg explains he just wants to get to know him. Les likes the idea of having a son, especially a wealthy one. Alma demands that Mike chooses between helping Deirdre and their marriage. She is furious when he feels he can't decide between them.
