And the Award for Best Performance as a Abused Spouse Goes to Kirsty Soames!
This week, Kirsty’s convincing portrayal of a battered wife convinced half the street and it didn’t help matters when Tyrone came up with a plan to kidnap Ruby and set off with Fizz and Hope for Ireland. They got as far as the ferry dock when they saw some cops checking the cars and decided to take off somewhere. They managed to find a B&B in Wales without a working TV or WiFi so the landlady didn’t know their faces were splashed all over the news.
It was a dumb move and even dumber was Kevin’s plan to help them but he felt he had no choice when Ty played the “You slept with my wife. You owe me.” card. So he concocted a story that he fell asleep on the couch (He took over for Sophie so she could go out with Jenna) and Ty must have sneaked in and stolen Ruby. Well, the cop wasn’t buying it and neither was Sally.
But all this had lead to some tension between Katy and Chesney. Katy feels she’s being lumped in with Fizz and doesn’t feel Ches is being supportive.
And Tina gave Norris a righteous dressing down in the Rovers.
And the Award for Best Dance Routine (Tap) Goes to … Anthony Cotton!
And The Award for Most Convincing Former Gay goes to Marcus!
It’s all too much Chez Maria/Marcus with the overcrowding in their flat so they ask Kirk, Beth, Craig, and Darryl the Rat to leave. Beth tries to make amends by cooking a fry up and taking everyone out to Canal St (Craig and Darryl stayed home). Suddenly Maria wasn’t all that keen to be in Marcus’ old stomping grounds and stormed out. He eventually met up with Sean and they had a chat but Marcus confirmed that the Canal St scene just wasn’t him any more. He went home to Maria and told her that the labels don’t matter and all that matter was that he loved her. Indeed, it’s like Ellen Degeneres said:
“I don’t like to label people. The only thing I label is my lunch in the refrigerator here at work. I write ‘lesbian’ on it. That way everybody knows it’s mine.”
And the Award for best First Time Homebuyer goes to David and Kylie Platt
David and Kylie decided to put Gail in the “Box Bedroom” now that she is going to be their lodger but that meant that she was not longer going to be taking Max to school or doing any of their laundry which is as it should be, really.
And the Award for Other News goes to Other News
Faye has been sneaking out to see her dad who appears to be on the level but I’m sure there’s a shoe to be dropped somewhere.
Sylvia is back from America and claims her purse has gone missing but something doesn’t add up but then, telling the truth isn’t her strong suit.
And now, apropos of nothing, here’s a gif of Canadian mass:
