Regular cast

Guest cast




  • This was the third of three consecutive weeks in which the usual broadcast pattern was amended to transmit two episodes of Coronation Street back-to back, though not as one continuous hour-long instalment. This was to lead the two episodes into ITV1's Celebrity Love Island and boost its ratings. This first episode of the evening was transmitted, as usual, without cast or production credits but with a caption which read Coronation Street continues in five minutes. Transmission of this first episode of the evening took place at 8.30pm.
  • TV Times synopsis: Steve tells Liz he wishes he'd never started a relationship with Tracy; Charlie thinks he's seen the last of Bev; the Underworld girls have a good time poking fun at Sally's snobbish attitude; and Roy receives some bad news. (The magazine published one synopsis to cover the two episodes.)
  • Viewing Figures: 10,090,000 viewers (3rd place).
