Worried sick about Hope, Fiz lashes out at Tyrone, suggesting he wouldn’t be so calm if it were Ruby who was ill. Tyrone’s hurt.

KEVIN FAILS TO HAVE THE TIME OF HIS LIFE Tim leads Kevin into No.4. Kevin’s thrilled to find they’ve organised a surprise party for him. But Tim’s offended when he overhears Kevin telling Sean that he doesn’t like his bracelet. Will the party leave a bitter after taste?
RECKLESS CARLA PUSHES NICK TO THE LIMIT In the Rovers, Carla pulls out Nick’s credit card and sets up a new gambling account in his name. But how will Nick react when he finds Carla gambling online with his money?

How will Simon take this? Andrea’s gutted to find out that Lloyd spent the night with Liz again. Upset, Roy confides in Cathy that Hope may have cancer.

Coronation Street Weds 2nd September episode review

Welcome to the first Wednesday review of September. In tonight’s episode, we visit Number 1 first. Amy is excited about her first day at Weatherfield High, but Tracy has other things on her mind. She is still wracked with guilt as well as worry. Robert eventually turns up, having been away for the night. He eventually manages to get the truth out of Tracy. However, she has trouble convincing him that it was in fact accidental. After much deliberation, Robert decides to believe her but he insists she must own up, at least to Carla anyway. This turn in the storyline is an interesting one. I think this is the first time that Tracy has knowingly been in the wrong and has actually done something wrong accidentally. 
"What, so, tell Carla the truth but lie to the police?"
"Just do it"

It’s Kevin’s birthday. Tonight, the loveable rogue turned 50. The adorable Tim, with whom Kevin has formed a ‘bromance’ presents him with a shiny camp bracelet with which Kevin is less than impressed with. However, he cracks a smile and Tim arranges to take him for a drink later. Later on, we find out that this is a ploy. Sally and Tim are arranging a surprise birthday party. When an emergency arises and Kevin has to rush off to Bolton, he leaves Tim in charge of the garage. An ear shattering rattle is heard shaking across the cobbles as Sally returns from the supermarket with a trolley full of alcohol. Tim cannot contain his laughter as Sally complains at her embarrassment and the looks she got. (If only she had a car, but no-one on the Street seems to have one.)

 And why is Sally going to all this effort for her ex-husband? Sophie knows something isn't right, especially when her mother announces that she and Tim haven't even picked a wedding date yet.

"Did you nick that?!"
"I borrowed it. Honestly, the looks I've been getting, I've never felt so vulgar in all my life!"

It is supposed to be Hope’s first day at school, but Tyrone and Fiz have to take her to the hospital. Of course, Hope is clueless and her only concern is that she has left her favourite teddy at home. Tyrone leaves Fiz at the hospital and takes Hope home to collect it. As a way of cheering Hope up, who is sad about missing school, he takes her to Mary’s face painting session at the community centre. Leaving Roy to babysit, he gets back to the hospital to join an optimistic Fiz. A strong blow was dealt as the episode drew to a close.

"I'm afraid it's very possible that Hope has a type of childhood cancer"

Elsewhere, Simon bargains with Leanne for a new phone, a hungover Carla finds Nick’s credit card, Cathy decides she needs to move out of Roy's and Gary finally makes a very welcome reappearance. A great episode, written by the formidable Jonathan Harvey. Performance of the episode goes to Patti Clare as Mary, who wove herself into different storylines, providing valuable comic relief.

"Happy birthday, Kevin. I've just been hearing all about your new romance. Or should I say bromance? You and Tim"

"Congratulations! I once had a gay boyfriend"

"We all have to go to work unfortunately. apart from the incapacitated and if we're to believe certain newspapers, anybody over 13 stone"

As always, thanks for reading.

Corrie supports Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Jennie wearing her gold ribbon for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Jennie McAlpine, who plays Fiz Stape, was interviewed on ITV's This Morning today. She was there to promote Fiz and Hope's cancer storyline.

Jennie says she's pleased to be doing this storyline because of the feedback and messages from parents and families, some of whom have children going through the same disease as Hope. 

Jennie says she has met some incredible people because of the story who are saying thankyou to her for Corrie raising the issue of childhood cancer.

Jennie has visited the Royal Manchester children's hospital and there's a short clip of her on one of the wards interviewing some of the staff and poorly children.

Happy 50th Birthday, Kevin Webster

It's Kev Webster's 50th birthday on Thursday September 3rd 2015 (source: Corriepedia) and it's being celebrated on screen tonight, Wednesday September 2nd.

Here's Kevin from his first appearance on the show, back in 1983.

After completing his course in 1983 aged 18, Kevin looked for work but couldn't find anything until he had a lucky encounter with Alf Roberts while hitchhiking back to Weatherfield in October that year.

Alf's car broke down while passing him by, and Alf offered to give Kevin a lift home if he could get it going.

When Kevin carried out the repairs with no trouble, the grateful shopkeeper recommended him to Brian Tilsley, owner of Tilsley's Garage in Albert Street, as Brian was looking for a mechanic to work alongside him. After a successful interview, Kevin was taken on.

Deirdre Barlow named The Guardian's fashion muse

The Guardian today have an article entitled "The top 20 autumn fashion trends you need to know about".  Well, all I know is I'll be slapping on a cardi when it gets chilly, but if you're a fashionista then you might like to read it so you know what to wear.

Listed as a muse for autumn fashion is our own, much missed Deirdre Barlow.

Here's what they say about here: "The fashion industry has decreed that Wes Anderson’s most stylish character, Margot Tenenbaum, is this season’s muse; her shabby fur coats and grubby eyeliner exactly what the industry wants to achieve right now. We don’t disagree, but we think the much-missed Deirdre Barlow is an even more apt inspiration: she did oversized glasses and prim blouses on a 1970s north-of-England budget while Anderson was still in short trousers."

The new ITV Corrie book Deirdre: A Life on Coronation Street will be published next month. You can pre-order it here.
