Coronation Street Wiki


Greg suggests to Sally that she leaves Kevin but that they don't go public for a while as it might hamper her divorce settlement. He thinks it would be perfect if Kevin started seeing Natalie again then he could be the guilty party. Ida and the girls celebrate when Hayley returns to work. Mike tells Hayley that he just wants to forget about the whole incident. Hayley is pleased to be back but doesn't like lying to the girls. Kevin is amazed when Sally suggests their problems may stem from the fact that he still loves Natalie. Mike warns Hayley not to tell the girls the truth as they'll think she's a weirdo and refuse to work with her. Rita cooks Alec a meal to clear the air but is annoyed when he asks her to marry him again. Kevin struggles to understand when Sally says she'd understand if he resumed his affair with Natalie. Rita tells Alec that she can't marry him, she only wants him as a friend.
