Coronation Street Wiki


As Nick makes the final preparations for Simon's birthday party, Leanne's touched that he's going to so much trouble. Peter's dreading Simon's party at the bistro as it'll mean watching Nick and Leanne playing happy families with his son. Carla suggests they don't go, but Peter insists he has to be there for Simon. Lloyd and Steve agree to split the cost of the repairs to the taxis which Tracy sabotaged - £1,000 each. Kevin puts pressure on Steve to get rid of Tracy and Beth from No.13, telling him that he wants to move in as soon as possible. Eva's upset when Stella declines her invitation to a spa afternoon in favour of Simon's birthday party. She accuses Stella of putting Leanne before her. Steve draws out £1,000 for the taxi repairs but changes his mind and offers it to Tracy and Beth if they'll vacate the house in twenty-four hours. Beth's keen to take the money but Tracy refuses. Anna's perplexed when Faye refuses to attend Simon's party, secretly wanting to avoid Lindsay Hayward. Simon's party takes place at the bistro complete with clowns and a candyfloss machine. Simon's thrilled whilst Peter seethes at the extravagance. Gary proudly announces that Izzy's pregnant. Anna, Katy and Chesney are delighted whilst Owen remains quiet. Izzy's worried at her dad's reaction. When Nick presents Simon with his own laptop, Peter sees red and punches Nick in the face bringing the party to an abrupt end. Faye receives some upsetting texts from Lindsay and in a fit of despair, smashes her mobile. Steve spells it out to Tracy that he doesn't love her and he's never loved her. Tracy's gutted and finally accepting her lot, agrees to move out. Nick and Leanne decide that it's time to start afresh away from Weatherfield and away from Peter and Carla.
