    Greetings and welcome to another week of words from Weatherfield. And so, without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.

    There’s a lot of evil men on the cobbles right now. I’m thinking of Asha’s nasty boyfriend Corey, Todd and sidekick Will, Ray Crosby and Simon’s new mate Jacob. Yes, Simon’s got a new friend who’s up to old tricks selling drugs. He gets Simon
    involved, promising it’s a quick way to make easy cash. Poor Simon doesn’t know whether he’s coming or going, and you really feel for him. He’s trying to look after Leanne who’s still grieving and not coping after Oliver’s death. He’s
    trying to work at the chippy as a delivery lad, but his bike gets stolen and now Jacob’s got him delivering drugs. It can only end in tears.

    Billy throws Paul out this week after Paul is up in court for thumping a fella he thought was Will’s dad but wasn’t. While their flat is empty, Will breaks in and smashes it up just as Summer walks in and finds him. Scared, she runs out of the flat
    and into the path of Tracy’s flower van. Fortunately, she’s fine, and we’re spared a hospital visit this week. Of course, it’s all Todd’s fault, he was the one setting Paul by introducing Will into his life. Billy can’t see this of course and
    Summer’s distraught (as am I) that one of the best couples on the cobbles have split. Paul moves in with mum Bernie at Chesney and Gemma’s house.

    At Tyrone and Fiz’s house, Alina (or as Evelyn calls her, the “pocket-sized Sophia Loren”), wanders into the living room wearing nothing but a towel to cover her dignity. Tyrone’s embarrassed and says it’s time Alina moves out, but Fiz is keen
    for her to stay: “She’s continental, they like walking around in the noddy!” However, Evelyn agrees with Tyrone that Alina needs to go and so Alina moves into the flat above the salon, which Debbie now owns.

    Debbie also seems to own the Bistro and throws its doors open for women-only drinks. Tracy and Mary go along, and there’s a wonderful scene written by Jonathan Harvey – actually, I digress, almost everything about Friday night’s hour-long Corrie
    written by Jonathan Harvey was wonderful. But in this particular scene with Mary and Tracy, Mary tells Tracy she can come to the Bistro only if she identifies as a woman. “I am a woman!” Tracy cries, saying she couldn’t be more feminist because she
    s slept with another woman. This prompts Mary to recall a relationship she once had in the village of Muff in Donegal involving ski pants and little else. And then there’s the story about her stalking Jan Leeming in a cemetery. Twice. There was a lot
    of laughter and warmth in this episode, which was the lockdown tonic we all needed, more please.

    Sad news for Gail this week when word reaches her from that London that her dad Ted had died. She decides to head to London to meet Ted’s partner Andrew.

    Carla and Peter become friends again and she helps him to hospital to get the treatment he needs. I love Carla and Peter, but even I’ve had enough for them getting back together and falling out again.

    Over at Roy’s Rolls, Asha and Nina decide to have a relationship, not a friendship, they’re not lesbians, they say. They’re, er, woke. They’re not labelling themselves; it is what it is, which is all well and good, but it takes a while for Dev to
    get his head around what’s going on with Asha this time. Meanwhile, at the corner shop, Aadi conducts a business review with Evelyn which goes as wonderfully wrong as you could’ve hoped.

    And finally, in the Rovers this week, Jenny visits Johnny in prison where his health is getting worse, he’s got another lesion on his brain and needs more medication. The dreadful Daisy continues to pout and posture and, as Inside Soap magazine said
    about her last week, acts as if she’s auditioning for a spot on Love Island.

    And that’s just about that for this week.
