Coronation Street Wiki


Les is dressed up for a court appearance. Curly tackles Emma to tell the truth. He's horrified that she's taking the side of someone who's framing an innocent man to save himself. Tyrone confesses to Vera that he's been using Mike's flat and accused of stealing money, but Vera is quick to blame Katy. Mick pleads with Emma to stand by him when she tells him that she's considering changing her statement. Mike delights in covertly confirming the rumour to the factory girls that £1,000 of his has been stolen. Dev sacks Les for bringing the cab firm into disrepute. Peter takes Tracy on at the bookies, even though Sally says she's no longer short-staffed. Joe winds Karen up for refusing to come to the trade fair with him. He tells her that she has to choose between being a housewife, or a success in business. Kevin refuses to give Tyrone a loan to pay back Mike's money. Karen informs Steve that she wants a career so she's going to the trade fair, whether he likes it or not. A drunken Les confronts Mick and Emma. He threatens Emma and any doubts she has in framing Les are dispelled. Bev warns Peter to treat Shelley properly - he promises to make her happy. Emma tells Curly that she won't be changing her statement - she informs a disbelieving Curly that she's choosing to stay loyal to a friend and he has to accept her decision.
