Coronation Street

Kelly takes to the witness box and reveals all about how Corey attacked Seb, kicking him repeatedly, in spite of her making every effort to make him stop. Sabeen, however, suggests that she attacked Seb in an effort to impress Corey. Laura subsequently takes the stand, and claims Kelly is a model daughter.

Imran and Sabeen deliver their closing arguments, as Abi yells at the jury to not believe Corey. With the jury out, Imran does everything within his power to prove Kelly’s innocence, as does Abi, who is intent on finding proof that Stefan bribed a witness. Afterwards, the verdict is in. But will justice be served? The residents of the cobbles later discuss the verdict.

Chesney is horrified to learn that Hope is going back to school, and he makes it quite clear that he doesn’t want her anywhere near Joseph!


Kat realises that honesty is the best policy, and thus tells Tommy that Alfie isn’t actually his dad, but rather Michael Moon is, which makes he and Scarlett brother and sister. Tommy insists that this is all the more reason to help Scarlett. Kat shows up at the courthouse, informing the social worker that she wants to become Scarlett’s carer, telling her that it’s for the best that Scarlett never see real mum Janine again. Janine bursts in, just as Kat is about to tell Scarlett the truth about Tommy!

Janine lays it on thick, delivering a convincing testimony about how she has redeemed herself over the years. And before long, she’s back in Walford, as she storms into The Vic, bold as brass, and wastes little time in telling all the punters exactly what she thinks of them! Things take a devastating turn when Scarlett vanishes, but Janine later finds both she and Tommy in Phil’s home, just as a deadly blaze starts!

Ruby confronts Jean, but she’s soon distracted by the smell at No. 31. Jean ignores her, but Ruby knows full well she’s hiding something, and when Martin reveals that Lily got caught selling weed at school, she puts two and two together. Jean, meanwhile, is shocked that Ruby hasn’t come clean about her role in Stacey’s imprisonment. She vows to do so herself, forcing Ruby to take action.


Wendy realises that Russ is much more dangerous than she initially thought. Desperate to protect Victoria, she urges her to hand over the money to Russ, but her conscience soon gets the better of her, as she tells Victoria to not give him a penny, explaining all there is to know about the man in question! Vic is disgusted, but before she can do anything, Russ shows up at the Hide with a sawn-off shotgun! He points the weapon at Victoria and, later, a shot rings out.

Leyla is determined to cope alone, and thus she has Wendy check her out at the surgery. Liam, however, comes to realise there is more going on than meets the eye when Priya acts suspiciously at the mention of his wife’s name, and therefore he confronts Leyla. Leyla admits that she had a miscarriage and lost their baby.

April realises that her number has been posted online, and thus she comes to believe that she knows her bully. Cathy becomes increasingly worried, and when she sees first-hand how much the trolling has impacted April, she’s riddled with guilt, confessing to Heath that she is responsible!


After Misbah is sued for gross misconduct at work, she confides in Shaq about how she feels as though her life is starting to fall apart.

But a shock revelation threatens to tear the Maalik clan apart, as Verity is in the hot seat, and Misbah has a confession to make!

Goldie is upset that she missed a call from Prince, but she’s later left speechless when he makes an impromptu return to the village! The McQueens are delighted to have him back in the fold, but it soon comes to light that he’s got a secret. He’s got a fiancé named Olivia!

The Deverauxs celebrate Walter’s birthday together with a barbecue in a special episode that will air as part of Channel 4’s Black to Front Project, and a series of surprise guests are present.
