Coronation Street Wiki


Les tries one last time to talk Janice into giving it another go but she is adamant that she wants a divorce. Anita Scott turns up in the Rovers and lavishes compliments on Ken about his writing skills. Peter is cynical. Les asks Vik if he can do a shift on the taxis as he's nothing else to do this New Year's Eve. Vik agrees. Dev tells Geena that he doesn't want to wait until July to get married and he wants to do it in the next month. Geena is very happy. Charlie and Ashley talk about things they've regretted doing while drunk. Maxine and Matt just stare at each other. Eileen sees Janice's new bag and tells Janice that Dennis originally bought it for her. Janice is gutted, and goes round to No.5 for a curry with Toyah and Sam. Les drives his taxi to a piece of waste ground, finds a hosepipe and tries to top himself. Dennis sets off on his bike, finds Les unconscious, puts him in the passenger seat and sets off driving the taxi to hospital. On the way they almost have a head on collision with another car, swerving out of the way just in time. However, the car ends up flipping and rolls down the hill, landing on its side.
