Previously on Corrie…
Rosie burned down the kitchen so she got Jason to put it back to the way it was. She had to give up the money she was saving for a handbag to pay for it though. But a lingerie shoot with Mr. Gay Weatherfield himself led to a rather sudden romance between the two. And Jason bought her a knock-off version of the handbag she wanted.
Kylie buggered off to
Greece Spain Cyprus leaving to Steve and Becky to deal with the social worker who wanted to ensure that Kylie was a fit mum (when we all know she clearly isn’t)
David crashed his Granny’s car into Graeme leading to an attempted murder charge. But as it turns out he may have epilepsy which explains his claim of a black out. He was released on bail but ordered to keep away from Coronation Street so he’s staying with Audrey.

Becky is posing as Kylie to the woman who looks so much like Dawn French that I need to call her the Social Worker of Dibly. She breaks out the nice tea set as the worker, named Miriam, settles in for a good long chat. She notices the photo of her and Steve cuddling and notes that it’s nice that she gets along with her brother in law. It all appears to be working until the social workers asks if she could speak with Becky.
Steve is furious at Becky’s deception but she claims she did it in Max’s interest as he would be put into care if they knew the truth about Kylie. Steve suggests that she meet with Miriam as Becky and tell her she and Kylie are twins. Becky defends her lack of impulse control on her rough upbringing. He then goes off to find poor Amy who’s being neglected these days in favour of weekly Becky drama.
There’s a mystery at Underworld. Someone left flowers with the card “Rest in Peace” on the steps of the factory. The factory girls and Sean decide to become the Scooby gang and solve the mystery. John Stape, overhearing this, suddenly looks very guilty and we can assume they were put there by Charlotte. On the other hand, so many people have died at that place that they could be for anyone from Ernest Bishop to Kasia Barowicz.
Mary is depressed that she hasn’t won a single magazine contest (including a trip the Gambia – I’ve been through it, me). When she hears that a position is open at the shop, she jumps at it but Norris quickly gives it to Tina, along with an apology and a 1 pound raise in pay.
Ashley is afraid if he moves to France his sons will learn French and he won’t be able to talk to them.
“You could learn French,” suggests Tina.
“I’M NOT LEARNING FRENCH!!!” says Ashley and just about about every francophobe everywhere. He then gets drunk and crashes on on Tina and Graeme’s couch.
Also, Owen is bringing back the phrase “Does Rose Kennedy own a black dress?” which threw me for a second until I realized he was talking about the Kennedy clan matriarch who lost three sons (Joe Jr, JFK, and RFK). It’s a kind of insensitive spin on the question “Is the Pope Catholic?”
