Coronation Street Wiki


Angry Charlie's back at the Rovers having explained to the police that he was referring to a sealant gun. Betty's very apologetic. Mike and Penny agree to go to Spain. Adam refuses to go as he wants to get stuck into his new job at Underworld and Penny's factory. Dev and Charlie icily agree to stay out of each other's way in future. Norris tells Mel that he's started writing his own novel - it's a thriller set in the world of stationery. Leanne agrees to go with Jamie on his next trip to Birmingham to see his mother. Everywhere Shelley looks she can see people gossiping about her and Charlie and the incident with the "gun". Charlie makes light of it and presents Shelley with the sealant gun mounted on a plinth to put behind the Rovers' bar. Mike shows the first signs of becoming forgetful but neither he nor Penny notice anything unusual. Norris gets everyone at the Book Club except Ken to agree to put in £200 each to pay for the publishing of Mel's book The Canary's Last Song. Hayley's disappointed to learn that Roy's taking her to Burnham Thorpe in October for the two hundredth anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar and not to Naples as she'd hoped. Liz suggests that it's time Maria and Tyrone moved in together. To Tyrone's delight, Maria thinks it's a good idea. Ken doesn't trust Mel and resolves to expose him for what he is.
