Coronation Street Wiki


Hayley explains to Roy that he is free to marry Tracy, as their own marriage isn't recognised. He would divorce Tracy immediately, but his rights over the baby would be guaranteed with a marriage licence, and his name on the baby's birth certificate. Martin gets Angela thinking when he tells her that Katy would love to talk to her. Jack tells Les that Barlow's Bookies have given odds of 11/1 on a dead-cert horse instead of 11/10. Les rushes off to place his bet, with an extra £50 that Ciaran has liberated from the till. Angela begins to talk to Katy, and is furious when Tommy shouts at her across the street and orders her home. She thinks it's time he thought of her feelings that she's missing Katy. Roy explains his position to Tracy and proposes, with Hayley at his side. Tracy is incredulous and rejects the offer, slamming the door behind her. The dead-cert horse doesn't win - Shelley and Lucy had gleaned inside information which was why the odds were so good. Ciaran frets about the £50. Gail surprises Nick with her positive attitude, and later invites Candice for tea. Dev and Maya go for lunch at the Rovers. Maya takes a phone call, and cuts the date short. Sunita lends Ciaran the £50 to pay back the Rovers' till. Roy and Hayley confront Tracy. If she won't consent to a five-minute marriage and a quickie divorce, how can they believe she'll hand over her baby for £20,000? Either she marries Roy, or the deal's off. Tracy tells the pair no deal and a stand-off ensues.
