Coronation Street Catch Up: the Peter & Toyah surrogate edition

a look back at last week on Canada's Coronation Street... 

Will he or won't he?

That's question when it comes to the coy Pat Phelan and his hapless basement captive, Andy. First Phelan digs a grave, then he's getting Andy a passport and banging on about what fun Andy will have once he's released onto the grassy hills of the Loire Valley, like some kind of post-Brexit bunny rabbit.

Now? Who knows? 

Meanwhile Norris finally convinces Rita to see a doctor but Rita bottles it and lies to Norris while her memory is getting worse. Seb and Faye make an ill-fated attempt to run away and afterwards Anna discovers that Seb is living in rough domestic conditions and we learn that, apparently, two little ones are calling him "Daddy." What gives?

Peter and Toyah almost scare away their surrogate when she discovers that Peter is an alcoholic but they talk her round and it looks like the baby-by-proxy is a go. Steve gets barred from the Rovers for being a pest and then gets barred again for good measure.

David the Dog keeps getting into Yasmeen's hydrangeas and she takes matters into her own hands by confiscating David (the dog, not the headcase). Will keeps hanging around Michelle after engineering Robert's return to jail.

And now for a few lines from the week that was:

Peter to the surrogate:
"Yes, I'm an alcoholic"
(and I own a pub, ironic isn't it?)

Yasmeen to David:
"David the dog annihilated my beautiful hydrangeas"
(he's like the Kim Jong-un of canines)

Peter to Steve:
"You're barred, again"
(and this time it's personal)

Toyah to Peter re: the surrogate's decision
"She's going to do it. She's going to have our baby"
(you'd better specify the surrogacy part to Peter;you know what he's like)

Well, Weatherfield watchers, so ends another week. C'mon Phelan. Let Andy go. Remember, Monday nights are double-shot nights of Corrie so get set for one hour of bliss. Unplug the phone and make an extra pot of tea. A packet of Cadbury chocolate fingers wouldn't go amiss either. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
