Coronation Street Wiki


It's Kirk's mum's anniversary. Having stayed over at the salon flat, he and Fiz have kept Toyah awake. Charlotte Morris insists on going to the hospital mortuary. Archie thinks that Charlotte should view the body. Richard seems to contemplate another murder. He puts a knife up his jacket sleeve. Just before they leave, the police turn up saying that dental records have proven it was not Patricia's body he identified. Richard plays it off as a mistake, and the officer assures him that misidentifications can occur. Gail invites Charlotte round for dinner the next night. Richard is angry. Maria returns from Canada. Back at the flat she is alone and turns the radio up loud whilst having a shower. Audrey hears it, rings the bell but gets no answer. Audrey asks Toyah and Fiz about it and takes them to the flat. The music has stopped and nobody is at the flat as Maria has gone out. Audrey thinks that she is going mad and is badly shaken. She confides in Archie and Richard. Meanwhile, Maria lets herself back in the flat. Toyah and Fiz piece together what's happened. Shelley asks Peter to order a bouquet for Kirk since he still has the business card of the florist were he bought her lilies. When booking on the phone, he secretly arranges another date with Lucy. Les asks Janice to pretend to move back in, in order to keep his house and she agrees. Roy is concerned about his petition against the amusement arcade. He goes to Curly for advice. Joe is getting increasingly worried about the police arresting him and puts it to Dev that if he drops the charges he'll dump Geena.
