Sorry this is so rushed kids, but here’s your update from last week from the ever lovely Flaming Nora.
Oh, but before you go on to the update, I just wanted to refer back to an entry I did awhile back because I’m sure that a lot of you are asking who this Angela person was. I wrote a quick background on her here.

Greetings and welcome to another weekly update. There’s no preamble ramble this week, so let’s just crack on with the update without any further ado.
If you’d like your weekly update with pictures and fun Corrie stuff, have a look at : http://coronationstreetupdates.blogspot.com
Claire gets increasingly paranoid this week and thinks everyone is talking about her. Oddly enough, they are. But not in the way that she thinks, as people genuinely care about her but egged on by Casey, she leaves the Street to go and stay with her mum. As soon as the coast is clear, Casey’s straight round there to see Ashley, cooking his tea for him and opening the wine. Ashley’s so distraught that Claire’s gone and left him again that he seeks comfort in Casey’s arms and, er, other bits. Audrey has a quiet word with me laddo after she spots Casey coming and going but he tells her all’s well although clearly it’s not.
Lloyd and Jamie finally find out about Shania and Steve on holiday in Malta. Eileen caves in and tells Lloyd the truth about Shania being a man just to shut him up as he won’t stop going on about Steve’s holiday secret. But if Ma Grimshaw thought that Lloyd would stay quiet, she clearly doesn’t know him as well as she thought and he ribs Steve mercilessly and relentlessly, as we all knew he would. However, Michelle demands to know what’s going on with the photos and Steve has to come clean that he snogged the face of a woman who turned out to be a man. Michelle makes Steve announce it to all and sundry in the pub where, in a truly wonderful scene, his embarrassment is complete and Michelle isn’t sure if she can trust Steve any more.
It’s the funeral of Norris’ ex-wife Angela and Norris meets up with two more of Angela’s ex-husbands, George Trench and Ivor Priestly. The three of them compare notes and head off back to the Rovers to enjoy the finer things in life that Angela denied them – beer, crisps and the odd pickled egg. They form the ‘Ex-Husbands of Angela Club’ and appoint Norris its Chairman on account of him being married to the woman for longer than the other two. Their talk turns to remarriage after a few beers in the pub and Norris admits he has special feelings for a lady in his life and wouldn’t mind popping the question to her. But who could it be? Emily, Rita or Doreen? My money’s on Rita the lovely shop keeper.
Cilla gets a new job as a scrubber at the Badgerbrook care home for elderly folk. She tells everyone she’s a hygiene technologist, but you would, wouldn’t you?
Dev and Leanne chat finances over pizza and he makes it clear that he’s interested in putting something up front to help Leanne out. However, it’s not his cash he’s talking about and when Leanne gets drift of what he really means she gives him short shrift. Good for her, what a creep that man can be at times. He also makes up for being so creepy this week by being so nice to daughter Amber and makes a fool of himself over a salad cream incident in the corner shop.
Young David Platt gets chatted up by the wonderful Amber but is too dense to realise that she really likes him. Instead, he flirts with Mel Morton, convinced he’s in with a chance when he hasn’t got a clue. As Sarah and Jason’s plans for the wedding steam ahead, David rubbishes his sister’s future with the builder every chance he can.
Steve buys Ryan a new pay of trainers and gets wrong from Michelle. Mind you, Michelle also gets ticked off from Liz after she laughs at little Amy all dolled up like Princess Barbie with a face full of make-up that Liz had slapped on her. Poor little kid.
And Tyrone heads off to Spain after he gets a phone call from the Benidorm police to say his mum’s been arrested for shoplifting. For those of us who remember Tyrone’s mum, this comes as no surprise.
At the factory, Rosie checks Sally’s seams and finds them wonky and loose. Sally’s a bit concerned that Rosie is enjoying herself too much in the management office while she sweats it out on the shop floor.
And that’s just about that for this week. Tune in next week for the update as it comes with very special news.
