Coronation Street Wiki


Karen is adamant that Tracy won't get a penny out of them, unlike the Croppers. She warns Steve that she'll kill him if he has anything more to do with Tracy. Rosie is suffering from first night nerves. Sally tries to gee her up and puts her through her paces in some vocal exercises. Taking the heat off David, Sarah asks Gail to come to her twenty-week scan. Fred tells Shelley off for antagonising customers when she warns Nick and Maria not to steal glasses for their new flat. Kevin argues that Rosie isn't well enough to go to the opening night. Sally is determined that she'll be there but Rosie runs off, upset. Karen confides in Janice that she's worried that Amy will drive a wedge between her and Steve as she grows up. Liz tells Steve to do the right thing by Amy and sort things out with Tracy. Kevin has a heart-to-heart with Rosie. He tells her not to be frightened of failing, and she agrees to do the show and overcome her nerves. Steve agrees to give Tracy £50 a week on condition that she never tells Karen.

Notable dialogue[]

Sally Webster: "I remember seeing somebody on Parkinson, it might have been Dame Judi Dench - I'm not sure. Anyway, it was somebody classically trained and top of her profession. And she said she vomited before every performance and had to keep a bucket in the wing. Now if it's good enough for Dame Judi, then it's good enough for Rosie Webster."


Karen McDonald (to Tracy Barlow): "If you set foot in here again, I will skull-drag you around this room, baby or no baby."


Sally Webster: "She can't let her public down! People have bought tickets!"
