Coronation Street Wiki


Tracy tells the courtroom that Gail admitted to following Joe down to the jetty with the rolling pin and smashing him over the head with it. Gail's apoplectic. Dev and Sunita move into No.7 but are still waiting for the removal men to collect Maria's furniture. Sunita sends Dev back to work while she waits in with the twins. Gail's defence suggests that Tracy made up the story of Gail's confession. Tracy gives a convincing performance as she vehemently denies it. Carla's working alone in the factory when the police arrive and inform her of Tony's escape. Carla's alarmed and summons Trevor to her side. Sunita is startled to find Tony lurking in her yard. Oblivious to his identity, Sunita invites him inside when he feigns sudden illness. Tina sets off for the court with Jason, Eileen and Julie in tow for support. David sees her and begs her not to betray Gail. Graeme leads him away. The police call on Roy and advise him to stay alert while Tony is at large. Sunita innocently chats to Tony about Maria moving away because of her murderer boyfriend. When the removal firm arrives, Tony takes the opportunity to slip away. The pathologist takes to the witness box and admits that Joe's head injury could equally have been caused by the boom of the boat as a rolling pin. Claire tells Dev about Tony's escape. Dev dashes home to check on his family and is horrified to find that Tony has been there. Dev phones the police. Sunita's shocked. Tina tells the jury how Gail always forgave Joe and was desperate to hang on to him. She declares that an innocent woman wouldn't have sent a text from a missing person. Gail's QC points out that Joe never gave Tina a thought when concocting his plan. Tina's stung. Carla talks to Dev and learns of Tony's visit. She accuses the police of being useless.
