Update for the Week Ending May 3. The One and Only

The big shock revelation this week was that Chesney Brown was named after early 90’s pop idol Chesney Hawkes whose song, “The One and Only” was a big hit in 1991 and later featured in the film “Doc Hollywood” and, if you’ve seen it, ironically, “Moon.”

Beth decided that she wanted Chesney to get over Katy so she set him and her niece, Sinead Tinker, on a blind date. It was awkward but we did learn that Sinead is a soap maker and suffered nicknames at school like “Stinker,” on account of her initials. Katy sees them and jealousy ensues but Ches isn’t really into the date and they part as friends. Later he agrees to go out with Katy and but his jealousy gets the better of him when he starts reading texts from a lovelorn Ryan. Even though she chucked her job at Greco and wants no part of Ryan anymore, Ches is still accusing her of wanting him. So they broke up for good this time. I wonder if Chesney kept Sinead’s number.

Things got pretty rough at the Windasses when Faye accused Anna of hitting her. The ensuing investigation was a bit too much for Faye who dropped the accusation when she realized Anna could go to jail. But Anna decided to relent and allow Faye to stay with Tim for a while so they could get to know each other. If his chocolate milk and Nutella based breakfasts are anything to go by, I don’t think she’ll come back.

Gary is behaving increasingly odd around Tina, almost as though it’s those two who are having a baby and not Gary and Izzy with Tina providing the womb. A pre-natal class is too much for Izzy to take as she feels she’s just in their way and leaves in tears.

Dev is struggling to manage parenting Asha and Aadi so he’s put out an ad for a nanny. I don’t know if Sophie turned him down but a newly released from the Bistro Mary came on quite strong, despite zero years experience in childcare.

Eileen is looking forward to vegging in Egypt but Julie, of course, is going for the full Lara Croft experience

Carla sold her flat. Peter is considering sell the bookies. Will he buy into Underworld next?

    Sinead makes soaps, and Chez has a stall at the market. What a coincidence! This doesn’t look good for Katy.

    I don’t get the “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” reference?

    I love the rolling eyes (above). Do not love this reincarnation of Ryan. Katy is certainly acting her age, actually both she and Chesney are, I suppose. And Peter – always the jerk. He deserves Carla and Rob. I am quite pleased to see Mary finding a new niche and being successful.
