Preview of tonight's double Corrie - Monday 22 December

Monday 22nd December
TRACY AND TONY PUT THEIR DEAL TO BED. Tony and Tracy hurriedly get dressed, both regretting their moment of madness. Tony asks Tracy to keep quiet about it and she bitterly agrees. Meanwhile as Liz waits impatiently for Tony to arrive for their night out, Todd spots Tracy getting out of Tony’s van. Tony eventually turns up at the Rovers, to Liz’s relief, but Todd’s intrigued when he lies about where he’s been and claims he hasn’t seen Tracy. Is Todd onto them?
STEVE SHUTS LLOYD OUT. Lloyd and Andrea are perturbed to learn that Steve’s wasting even more money on restoring his car. Lloyd decides to talk to him but Andrea urges caution, revealing he’s been having health issues. As Lloyd tackles Steve about his visit to the doctor and his weird behaviour, how will Steve react? Meanwhile Steve transfers £4000 of Street Cars’ money into his own account.
STEPH LAYS DOWN THE LAW. Steph and Gavin flirt as they work side by side at the bistro. When Nick and Erica call in, Steph announces she’s employed Gavin as permanent barman as she refuses to hold the fort alone over Christmas.
ELSEWHERE Rob’s sentencing is the talk of the Rovers. When Norris makes an insensitive remark Carla walks out and it’s left to Roy to console her as she struggles to deal with the news.

Monday 22nd December
GARY’S BESIEGED BY HIS FAMILY. When Kal finds Gary and Alya chatting in the street, he angrily
sendsAlya back to work and tells Gary to stay away from her. In an effort to be civil, Izzy allows Gary
to take Jake for the afternoon. But while he steps in to help Roy, who’s getting hassle from some
teenagerss in the cafe, Jake cuts himself. When Izzy spots Jake’s cut, she immediately blames Gary for
his lack of care. Witnessing this Owen turns on Gary, issuing a few home truths of his own!
DAVID PINS HIS HOPES ON A DOLL’S HOUSE. Desperate to ensure they have the best Christmas ever, Kylie arrives home laden with presents and asks David to buy something special for Lily. Meanwhile Kylie’s unnerved when Callum drops his car into the garage for a service and tells her she’ll be seeing more of him. Calling in the Rovers, Callum flirts with Liz first then Eva. What is Callum’s game?
STEVE PULLS UP HIS CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS. In an effort to appear less miserable, Steve suggests they hold a massive Christmas party at the Rovers. Liz is unimpressed when Steve invites Tracy along too, while Tracy winds up Tony, pointing out he’ll be spending Christmas Day with both she and Liz.
Meanwhile when Steve arrives back in the pub laden down with bags of goodies Liz is taken aback by
the amount of stuff he’s bought. As he pays for the work on his car, where is Steve getting his cash?
ELSEWHERE Tim shows Sally a picture of a second hand sofa he’s found but will it live up to Sally’s expectations?

Last of the Summer Wine actress joins Coronation Street

Juliette Kaplan, who plays Pearl in Last of the Summer Wine will join Coronation Street as Beth's grandma Agnes. 

This story came in via Digital Spy who report that the actress revealed on her blog that she will feature in at least eight Corrie episodes in early 2015.

She wrote: "THEN it got better when I was asked to audition for CORONATION STREET!!!!
I got the part –YAY YAY YAY!!!!!!! I got 4 episodes which then turned into 7 and last week I got another script so I’m doing 8 in total – so far.  So, on January 5th I make my debut in Corrie as AGNES, Beth’s grandma. All of you keep your fingers crossed that I get written in regularly. No, I’m not telling you the plot – I’d get hung drawn and quartered!  What surprised me was how friendly they all are and how welcome I was made to feel. If you watch it never mind the characters they play just know they’re a great bunch of really lovely people who work terribly hard all the time".

Corrie Weekly awards for Dec. 15 - 19

Money Pit award: Steve's car, and Tyrone's right, that "statement" is more like Bank Statement.

Full On award: Erica. I'm not sure Nick knows what's hit him.

Wind up award: I think half the reason Nick decided to have a fling with Erica was because Gail said he wouldn't be interested!

Musical Ambience award: "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man" playing to Nick and Erica's first kiss. "Let's Get it On" when Tracy was coming on to Tony. An old fashioned cry-in-your-beer country song was on the jukebox when Carla was reeling from finding out about Rob's sentence.

Luddite award: Sally doesn't trust Alya's list on her phone!

Fashion win: Alya looked great in this outfit.

Lines of the week: Sean to the family "Nobody be themselves, act normal!" and "Nobody say anything irreverent in front of the reverend!"
Liz "Erica's harmless. More front than Brighton but there's a very good heart beating under that cleavage"
Gail to Erica "You stay there! You're not leaving till he (Nick) chucks you out!!" (You lose, Gail)
Erica to Gail "You're son's got a lovely bum" (Gail would know, she's diapered it enough!)
Nick "I've just forgotten something" Liz "The way home?"
Liz "It (the club) is so posh there is not one single rude cocktail on the menu"
Leanne about Tracy "Has she ever heard of a reasonable conversation?" Todd "Welcome to my world. Every day is a roller coaster ride of joy"
