Coronation Street Wiki


The residents are shocked to discover someone has broken the shop window. Gordon is furious but covers up for Les having smashed it with an empty bottle. Jenny gets Elsie an interview at Ashworths. Les tells Maggie he can't help himself any more. She tries to cover up for him but worries how they'll pay for it. Hilda thinks Stan broke the window whilst drunk. Val drinks with Ray in the Rovers rather than cook Ken's dinner. Dennis tells Elsie he borrowed the money from a moneylender, at 48% interest. Thinking the Cleggs are insured, Hilda makes Stan confess. The Cleggs are astounded.
