Coronation Street Wiki


Blanche warns a hung-over Deirdre not to jeopardise Tracy's chances at the hearing. Les upsets Steve by advising him to play dirty in court. Molly refuses to accept Fiz's apology. Charlie tries to unsettle Shelley by suggesting a celebratory drink in the Rovers at lunchtime. Shelley wants to invite Bev, and with Zack there, Charlie can't refuse. Molly is running the kennels like clockwork, amazing Tyrone with her dog-handling abilities. He refuses to listen when Fiz tries to cast doubt on Molly. Charlie more or less orders Jason to be his best man. Bev interprets Shelley's invitation as a sign she's finally rid of Charlie, and rushes to the Rovers. She's devastated to find Charlie at the heart of the celebration, smugly asking her to toast the happy couple. Steve and Tracy get a grilling at the hearing, with both sides airing all their past wrongdoings. It turns into a slanging match until the judge takes control and retires to deliberate. Shelley pleads with Bev to bury the hatchet and forgive her. The judge reaches his verdict. Whilst Steve's behaviour has been less than exemplary, he's satisfied that he's been provoked by Tracy's volatile and deceitful behaviour. Steve is jubilant when he's granted parental responsibility and defined contact, whilst Tracy is left devastated.
