Coronation Street Wiki


Rita and Sally ask Alec's advice on how to end her partnership with Greg. Alec tells her to move faster than Greg to grab what she can. Les tells hospital manager Mr Yorke that he only took the drugs Martin gave him and reveals that they don't get on. He swears he didn't touch the drugs trolley and insists Martin tried to kill him. Colin Barnes calls on Natalie and appeals to her, for Des's sake, to tell the police the truth. He demands justice for Des and accuses her of protecting the thugs that murdered him. When she says she can't do anything, he accuses her of never loving Des. Greg is furious when he discovers that Sally has closed the bank account. Sally and Rita snatch all the boxes of underwear they can find. Sally then tells the leasing companies to take the computer equipment and car back. The police call on Natalie after Colin talks to them. She says there's no truth in what he's told them. Greg catches up with Sally and threatens her for stealing his stock. He goes to hit her but Rita arrives and throws him out. He promises Sally that he'll get even with her.
