SOAP WATCH; Grant huffs and puffs at Peggy's wedding.
Well, yes he does, but it takes a lot of huffing and puffing and soul- searching to get him there, but he makes it in the end. The only thing is it's Peggy who ends up having second thoughts, and confides in Pat (Pam St Clements) of all people.
She's about to get a good time of her own, if Roy (Tony Caunter) has anything to do with it - him and the little blue tablets he's seen buying off a woman in a car park, know what I mean, nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
Anyway. Elsewhere on the square, Natalie's (Lucy Speed) return is causing consternation. Pat gives her a piece of her mind, and Barry (Shaun Williamson) avoids her after learning all about her past business with Ricky (Sid Owen).
Avoiding the issue has been Ian (Adam Woodyatt), who is in luurve with Melanie (Tamzin Outhwaite), and he eventually plucks up the courage to tell her. Run, girl, run for your life...
Down on Coronation Street, Nick (Adam Rickitt) and Leanne (Jane Danson) are having a rough time of it. Nick receives a letter from his Uncle Steven in Canada with a pretty interesting proposal, but he's too scared to tell Lee, because he doesn't know how she'll react to it. And he's also got her lovely mum Janice (Vicky Entwistle) to deal with, remember. Poor guy.
Maxine (Tracy Shaw) is still reeling from being given the push by Audrey (Sue Nicholls), but when Tom (Tom Wisdom) resigns in protest she perks up, and she and the handsome hairdresser start planning a way to get back at Audrey. When they set up shop in the flat above the salon, Audrey realises she has a fight on her hands.
Rita (Barbara Knox) changes her mind about giving the Kabin to Sharon (Tracie Bennett) - oh no, not more moaning from her now.
And poor Roy (David Neilson) and Hayley (Julie Hesmondhalgh). They are so desperate to get married they take Curly's (Kevin Kennedy) advice and search the Internet for a vicar who will perform the ceremony. But then Emily (Eileen Derbyshire) - good old Auntie Em' - steps in to help them out.
Tracey (Dawn Acton) and Robert are trying to patch things up which is great news, because maybe that means they'll head back to London for good.
Spider (Martin Hancock). Mmmm. Just thought I'd mention him, because he's not really in it this week. It's a travesty.
In Emmerdale, Chris (Peter Amory) decides to play Sean at his own dirty game and ropes Terry (Bill Hartman) in for a bit of espionage. Mandy (Lisa Riley) and Lisa (Jane Cox) find Butch (Paul Loughran) a tough nut to crack when it comes to signing the marriage annulment forms, but will Reverend Ashley Thomas (John Middleton) eventually get poor Mandy out of this dreadful situation?
At last, my prayers have been answered in Brookside! The Musgroves are informed by the building society that they have lost the house. Yippee! But I won't get my hopes up too much - they're bound to get a last minute reprieve or something.
Jimmy (Dean Sullivan) might be out of last minute reprieves from Jackie (Sue Jenkins) this week as their marriage appears to be crumbing again. Could it be for good this time, when Jimmy tells Jackie that he forged his degree certificate to become a teacher? How much more can this woman take? She's got Lindsey (Claire Sweeney), the superwoman gangster for a daughter, for God's sake, give her a break!
Susannah (Karen Drury) is mourning the deaths of Matthew and Emily, and Jacqui (Alex Fletcher) is becoming increasingly confused about her feelings for baby Harry... there could be trouble ahead.
And there is more trouble to be found in Hollyoaks. You just can't miss it this week if you're a fan. The Patrick family have been in a real mess recently, with identity crises going on right, left and centre. And this week as a depressed Gina (Danielle Brent) has her crisis, Sol (Paul Danan) worries and intends to find her. But his desperation to do so has disastrous consequences as he and his mum - well Mrs Patrick - end up in a terrible car crash, Will they live or not?
God, I can't bear this excitement in Hollyoaks. It's close to getting as exciting again as it was in the Kate and Kurt affair days.
'Bout time too. Hurrah!
