“He was eating a plate of sausage rolls!”
The big story this week is that Rosie left the cobbles for fame and
fortune fame in London where she was to appear as a contestant on a knock-off of The Bachelor in which several comely lasses vie for the affections of a “lord or prince or something.” I’m praying that it’s actually a remake of the second season of Joe Millionaire.
The problem is that in order to be on the show, Rosie has to be single. So she dumped Jason, who was planning to move to London with her, after getting the sack from Owen on account of their sexcapade in his van.
Rosie, in the end, chose TV and the promise of fame without accomplishment, over Jason. It was, as these goodbyes go, tearful but rather understated. Helen Flanagan, who plays Rosie, left the show for a number of reasons, including panic attacks, the way her character dressed, and a desire to spend more time with her (of course) footballer boyfriend.
I grew to like Rosie over the years. I preferred Goth Rosie and disliked the oversexed vamp Rosie but lately, she began using her look for a purpose and eventually morphed into a comedy character. But she’s gone now with a black cab send off and everything. Is it for good? Who knows, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she came back either “reality TV famous” or disillusioned with the pursuit of fame.
Paul and Leslie moved into Eileen’s. In her more lucid moments, Leslie is catching on to who Eileen is to her husband.
Julie would like to have a child with Brian but Brian had a vasectomy seven years ago. So it’s a bit of a shock when she announces that she’s pregnant.
Julie's pregnant? But Brian's had the snip. ... SHE'S GOING TO GIVE BIRTH TO THE SAVIOUR!!! #corriecanada—

Katy left a sleeping Joseph to go pay the rent, making it back in time just before Chesney got home. This raises issues of the lack childcare and support for young mothers on the poverty line and some may even call it child endangerment, or as it was called when I was Joseph’s age, Tuesday.
Simon haaaates Carla. From his point of view, however, I can see where he’d want to have the same set of parents for longer than a year.
Eva’s birthday was this week and Gail and Stella bought the same blouse. Gail got drunk and hilarious.
"I'll have you know I bought this blouse before it went in the half-price bin." I love Drunk Gail! #corriecanada—

After Audrey suffered a fainting spell, Doctor Carter recommended light exercise and to cut back on the drinking. This will end in tears.
Tommy thought Kirsty was stepping out on Tyrone as he saw her with another bloke but it was just her cousin in a Ferrari.

Underworld is just about the creepiest place to work right now.
