Coronation Street Wiki


Sam buys a cheap tin of Greasol from his uncle Pat and keeps the rest of Kevin's money that he was given to buy it for himself. Les passes his taxi-driving test, much to the annoyance of Vik. Vik and Steve lie and tell Les they can't afford to employ him. Maxine demands that Ashley takes time off work to come home and have sex when she demands it in the hope of conceiving. Ken asks Dev if Deirdre can have some time off work so they can both go and visit Tracy in London. Deirdre is annoyed with him for this because it makes her look bad in front of Dev. Gail and Martin go together to the school for parents' evening. Charlie warns them that Sarah's work is slipping and she will have to work very hard to pull her marks back. Both Gail and Martin are concerned by this. Eileen mentions to Janice that Street Cars are desperate for drivers. This infuriates Janice because Les was turned down. Eileen annoys Charlie by showing up late to the parents' evening without apology. Eileen gets defensive when she says that Todd isn't doing his homework and it's her job to make sure that he does. Les and Steve row in the Rovers and keen to avoid a scene, Steve agrees to give Les a week's trial.
